'Indigo' by Tatcha is a skin cream series inspired by the beauty rituals of geishas. You can use this Japanese skincare line for its soothing properties and anti-inflammatory ingredients.

The Indigo collection is composed of three products: a hand cream, body butter and face cream. All three products offer soothing moisture for all skin types, but especially for those who have sensitive, inflamed or irritated skin.

Relievable conditions also include eczema or rosacea and the story behind the product is unique in itself. It's a young skincare line inspired by the geisha beauty rituals found in Kyoto. The words "tatehana," and "chabana," represent a unique beauty and the inherent beauty within that's pared down to a basic formula.

As a result, the skincare line is adapted from a manuscript in 1813, using the ingredients and processes geishas used at the time.
