Healthy skin and hair from the soothing power of nature.
I made this unique soap by following my passion.
Our Murasaki, a key ingredient of Herbal medicine, is purely organic and produced by specialist contracted growers.
We blended Shikon extract taken from Murasaki.
This is a mild soap without additives sourced in Iwate, Japan.
The therapeutic power of Murasaki cleanses your body and refreshes your soul.
Shikon is extracted from the root of Murasaki and has been highly valued as herbal medicine since ancient times.
It has been used as a treatment for wounds and burns along with being used as an ointment for skin problems.
Effectiveness of Shikon

No use of artificial chemicals*
Each Murasaki Koubou Soap is made by hand, following a simple recipe with carefully selected natural ingredients from Iwate.

Murasaki Koubou Soap takes considerable time and effort to make, and was inspired by a woman’s personal suffering and passion for better health.
The journey to produce this soap required five years of preparation to make a soil with sufficient nutrients to grow the Murasaki plant, which is difficult to cultivate through mass production.
Extracting Shikon from Murasaki is a technically complex process that results in combining the extract in soap to maximize its effect. Murasaki Koubou’s original research successfully developed a manufacturing method to efficiently extract Shikon’s essence.

Is there an expiration date for Murasaki Koubou Soap?
Due to the absence of preservatives and antioxidants used in production the expiration date is 6 months from the date of manufacture.
We manage the production so that the soap is aged about 2-3 months when it arrives to your hands.
