It has long been known that foiled paper has the property of absorbing sebum. However, because it is rare, it has been used only for geisha makeup repairs. In 1976, Kuniko Asano, the founder of Hakuichi, announced the oil blotting paper of the “gold leaf papermaking method”. This has greatly improved quality, made it hygienic and cheaper, and has become a must-have for women.
In 1976, Hakuichi released Japan’s first oil blotting paper made by the gold leaf papermaking method. Since then, they have been working to achieve the beauty of women using traditional culture. Hakuichi opened a gold leaf beauty salon ahead of the industry.
