The Land of the Rising Sun meets The Land Down Under

"Tranquility and Simplicity"

M Naturalz is small online Handmade Soap and Bath products shop based on beautiful Gold Coast (Queensland, Australia) run by a Beauty Therapist.

M Naturalz uses a Japanese Apricot flower as its brand mark. I chose the Japanese apricot flower as the logo for M Naturalz as it represents one of the most popular flowers in Japan and it is also my grandmother’s name.

I moved to Gold Coast, Australia from Japan 2009. Since then I just love the beauty of Australia.

Australia has some of the world's most distinctive and diverse natural environments such as the spectacular Red Center, world heritage-listed rainforests, and the beautiful Great Barrier Reef. It also has abundant gifts from Mother Nature’s native plants and minerals.

I have a Japanese cultural background, and that's where my inspiration comes from. Superstitious beliefs are still common in Japan. Especially “Cleanse” or “Purify” is very important rituals in Japanese culture. Also, Wabi-Sabi consists of concept of traditional Japanese beauty. Wabi-Sabi is a Japanese philosophy which correlates with ideas of Zen Buddhism, the concept of various interpretations, but those resonate that the beauty to be found in tranquility and simplicity.

Japanese women have been using Mother Nature’s gift from the earth and the sea to nourish and beautify their skin from ancient times. This is why I don’t make colorful and design soaps. The color of my soap is the gift from Nature.

Gorgeous packaging, Colorful design, Cute shape soaps are very appealing. But as a Beauty Therapist, I always ask myself what does it really need for skin.

While working at the Organic Spa in Australia as a Beauty Therapist, I noticed that the herbs and beauty ingredients they were using at the spa were almost exclusively of Western origin. Having been raised in Japan, I am familiar with herbs and ingredients that are common to Japan but are almost unknown here in Australia.

I realized that there was a niche that needed to be filled; a combining or fusion, of Western with Eastern ingredients.

I design and create my own products by combining Australian and Japanese traditional ingredients which make my products very unique. I also design and create my own special packaging based on Japanese traditional wrapping method "Origata" for each product.

I am also a qualified Beauty Therapist who knows how to create soap specifically for facial use.

No one has same skin condition and also skin condition changes season to season, your stress level, and your lifestyle. I believe my knowledge of Beauty Therapy will help people to choose better products.

I would like to help people by using that fusion of Australian and Japanese ingredients to make them feel and look good about themselves in a natural way.

My soap is specializing in Facial use, so I don't use much essential oil, but with warm water, the soap lather brings the hint of fragrance of essential oil.

About Ingredients
The palm oil I use in my soap is sourced from a supplier who is a member of the RSPO (roundtable on sustainable palm oil) the international organization that promotes the growth and use of sustainable palm oil.

I don't use any wax, acid or accessible use of palm oil to harden my soap and the formulation of my soap, I use palm oil as less as possible. So, my soap is little softer but you can find my soap more moisturize and mild for your skin.

Welcome to my shop!

Tranquility and Simplicity
Zen style Skincare from Australia!

My natural soaps are handmade using the cold process method in small, quality controlled batches from a combination of Australian grown plants, vegetable oils and Australian clays which naturally beneficial for your skin and combine them with the traditional Japanese beauty ingredients, pure water and Lye.

The cold process method retains all of the naturally occurring glycerin and natural vegetable fat that helps to moisturize and not leave your skin feeling dry and itchy as commercial soaps do.

The palm oil, I use my soap, is sourced from a supplier who is registered with RSPO(roundtable on sustainable palm oil) as maintaining sustainable farming practices. And the formulation of my soap, I use palm oil as less as possible. So, my soap is little softer but you can find my soap has more moisturizer and mild for your skin.

Please understand handmade soap designs are an artistry that cannot be duplicated exactly or identically from batch to batch. Slight variations in color intensity design of swirls, color chunks, are all subject to variation and is part of the beauty and nature of "handmade".
