Founder Takaragi Keiko moved to New Zealand with her parents when she was seven years old. Due to New Zealand's dry climate and strong ultraviolet rays, Keiko and her family have been suffering from sensitive skin problems for a long time. A New Zealand dermatologist said that Keiko's skin is far more sensitive and fragile than others. In addition to protecting her skin, he said she should pay more attention to skincare to reduce the risk of skin cancer.
While she was studying in Australia, Keiko tried lots of skin products, but none of them worked well. In 2016, Keiko met with two investors, so she determined to use Australia and New Zealand's natural ingredients and the cutting-edge technology of Japan to innovate a new skin care product exclusively for dry and sensitive skin.
Keiko hired a top cosmetic chemist, taking her time to perfect her formulations. Finally, 76 recipes were deployed and tested on their own skin and nearly a hundred other volunteers. The formula of the Australian research team was finally perfected in 2019 and KOIKKI was officially launched in 2020.
Keiko said: "I am proud to successfully combine the latest Japanese technology with Australian and New Zealand natural ingredients. I will continue to pursue the highest quality for my products and strive to continue kaizen endlessly."
