Why choose Shu Uemura?
Shu Uemura is a cult global brand that takes a holistic approach to beauty. It believes that beautiful makeup should start with beautiful skin.
Not only is it widely recognised for its amazing cosmetics and hair care products, it’s the world leader in skin cleansing oils and sets the benchmark others try to copy.
Shu Uemura started as a cosmetics brand founded by a Japanese makeup artist who became famous in Hollywood following his transformation of Shirley McLaine into a Japanese geisha in the film My Geisha. He soon became one of Hollywood’s favourite and most sought-after makeup artists.
Uemura, in 1960, was the first person to develop a cleansing oil. He promised the oil would leave the skin cleaner than soap but would also act as a moisturiser.
Uemura maintained the philosophy throughout his life that the health of one’s skin should be the most important aspect of cosmetics. He also believed that makeup should enhance one’s natural beauty not artificially create it.
Uemura started a makeup company in Tokyo that later came to be named Shu Uemura Cosmetics in 1983. It’s now a leader in the Japanese and international beauty market due to its obsessive focus on the quality of its products.
At Skin Clinica, we intentionally choose products that have proven actives and deliver results, while also respecting the health of the skin.
