TATCHA beauty papers are the gold standard in beauty papers because of their incomparable performance and are the Japanese geisha’s secret to petal fresh skin. The unique plant-like composition of the paper (100% Abaca Leaf) is what allows each sheet to absorb oils, not essential moisture. The papers were originally created by gold craftsmen to protect the precious metal they hammered into whisper-thin leafing to enrobe the majestic pavilions of Imperial Japan. Their gold-leaf artistry transformed the supporting paper into aburatorigami, an incredibly soft, strong and absorbent leaflet ideal for removing excess oils from delicate skin. Geishas discovered that this precious by-product of the artisan’s alchemy could help create a perfect canvas for their makeup and keep their skin petal-fresh throughout the day and night.
