LOCAL. Our lab and manufacturer carries over 100 years of skincare heritage in Japan. Our products are crafted in a nearby prefecture from where we work and live. Our ingredients are sourced from certified and controlled sources.
CARE. As we do with ingredients, we give careful consideration to who we work with in order to ensure processes that are kind to each other and environment. Our production is based in Japan where makers are compensated well in a safe environment carrying certifications of ISO9001 (Quality Management System), ISO14001 (Environmental Management System), and COSMOS / ECO-CERT (environmentally friendly and socially conscious practices).
MADE IN JAPAN. We are dedicated to local producers. From formula to packaging, everything is Made in Japan - a holistic approach of crafting products through processes refined over centuries.
REGENERATIVE. We source our hero ingredients from local farmers who practice regenerative farming, restoring abandoned farmland in Japan. Our Shiso exhibit crop diversity and are grown pesticide-free, with residue from distillation repurposed as compost.
1% FOR THE PLANET. As members of 1% for the Planet, we donate 1% of all sales to local organizations in Japan championing land rehabilitation and renewable energy by partnering with More Trees, A Seed Japan, Yoro No Mori, Whole Earth Nature School, and Fukushima Renewable Future Fund.
COLLABORATIVE. We work with artisans to develop skincare accessories using inherited craft in Japan. From incense to pottery, our handmade offerings are made from circular production processes.
MINIMAL. We release products in an intentional manner. Our product line is considered and curated, made up of purposeful essentials formulated to work alone or in harmonious combination with each other.
REDUCTION. Waste reduction is at every step of DAMDAM's product life cycle. Our minis and most of our full-size products are made from biomass material, with the remainder following this year. These are made from renewable and biodegradable plant sources, has a smaller carbon footprint and faster decomposition.
LOOKING BEYOND. We have an ongoing CO2 annual reduction plan of 10% at our lab, a goal we have achieved since 2020. We continue to test and develop sustainable packaging solutions using paper and pulp-based materials with members of CLOMA, Japan Clean Ocean Material Alliance, an organization which aims to solve our marine plastic waste problem.
