Waphyto is a Japanese brand of numerous Asian beauty awards, which combines the best of what Mother Nature has to offer with the latest biomethodological advancements to create a true beauty alchemy.
In this article we will tell you what makes Waphyto a unique brand deeply linked to the personal experience and scientific discoveries of its founder.
Atsuko Morita, a leading authority in the biomethodological herbal medicine’s field
Waphyto's founder, Atsuko Morita, is a Japanese-born and raised plant scientist and phytotherapist.
When she developed asthma, dry skin and dry hair during her professional career as a flight attendant, Atsuko went to know more about phytotherapy techniques. Using herbal medicine, Atsuko noticed that her asthma symptoms were gradually dissipating and she began to experience numerous benefits. She decided to leave her airline career permanently to attend medical school and study botanical therapy in Paris.
Atsuko's subsequent research led her to award-winning scientific achievements (and made her a leading authority in biomethodological herbal medicine’s field).
Her studies of gene editing, plant properties and functional ingredients also led her to discover a defensive plant substance called "biophytoalexin", which plants use to protect themselves.
Today, Morita uses modern biotechnology and genetic engineering to find effective botanical ingredients for Waphyto's innovative and targeted products.
Phytotherapy and biomethodology
Waphyto draws its roots from scientific knowledge. Fusing scientifically-proven herbal techniques and extraordinary raw materials from Japan, the brand transcends traditional herbology with scientifically-proven phytotherapeutic techniques to create their uniquely holistic products.
This comprehensive methodology not only promotes a more holistic approach to body and skincare, but also ensures that the herbal formulas offered by the brand are competitive with the latest innovations in the sector, in terms of effectiveness and results.
The geological study of Mikawa’s soil, Japan
Waphyto is deeply committed to sourcing the highest quality plants grown to the highest Japanese agricultural standards.
Thus, Atsuko's studies are not only about plants, but also about the geology and properties of the soils in which the plants are growing.
According to Atsuko, the study of the land and of the environment allows them to obtain plants and ingredients of the highest quality. This is why Waphyto's key ingredients are grown in the Mikawa region.
Located on the geological median Tectonic Line, the longest fault zone in Japan, the Mikawa region is one of the most energized places on earth. Its nutrient-rich soils produce high-quality, potent and safe plant raw materials, recognized by many experts in geology, agriculture and pharmacology.
The definition of Clean Beauty according to Waphyto
As wanting to preserve the purity of nature, Waphyto constantly ensures that its products meet the highest standards of the scientists and herbalists involved in the company, but also the standards of the current market in terms of social responsibility.
- Elemental : all Waphyto products are made with natural ingredients, sourced locally whenever possible.
- Environmental: PCR plastic (recycled plastic) is actively used for all containers, and the brand is committed to using even less plastic in the future. The packaging and boxes are made of recycled paper from plant residues.
- Ethics: fair trade relations have been established with the producers of raw materials, thus guaranteeing reasonable prices for their ingredients.
- Empowerment (empowerment and emancipation): through her charitable work, Atsuko Morita has supported many women's lives and help them to become more empowered.
