Organic Kita no Hato –
the Selected Ingredient
After 20 years of devoted research, ALBION arrived at the Kita no Hato variety of Job’s tears. Kita
no Hato is a hardy, vitality-rich Job’s tears—a plant native to temperate and tropical
Asia—developed by cultivating the plant in frigid Hokkaido. Kita no Hato is the only variety of
Japanese-grown Job’s tears approved in Japan for use as the herbal medicine Yi Yi Ren.
The Kita no Hato used in Skin Conditioner is organic, having been successfully produced in fields
meeting Organic JAS Standards set by the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.
Skin Conditioner uses only organic Kita no Hato grown with painstaking care by contract producers
with experience and expertise. Grown as naturally as possible with minimal agricultural chemicals,
Kita no Hato is a natural blessing packed with the vitality and power of plants.
