Committed to Job's tears seeds
for fifty years

Skin Conditioner contains Job's tears seed essence and oil as skincare ingredients. Job's tears seed was the answer to ALBION's search for "a very Japanese" ingredient, found by exploring traditional medicinal herbs of the East. Job's tears seed has served human wellbeing since antiquity as a remedial herb. The variety and cultivation method of its Job's tears are aspects ALBION is very uncompromising about.

The story of “Organic Kita no Hato”*

Job’s tears, the key ingredient of Skin Conditioner, is a plant usually found in tropical regions of Asia. The Job’s tears variety known as Kita no Hato is a hardy, vitality-rich grain developed by cultivating the plant in the frigid climate of Japan's Hokkaido region. Kita no Hato is the only variety of Japanese-grown Job’s tears approved in Japan for use as the herbal medicine Yokuinin.

The Kita no Hato used in ALBION products is organic, having been successfully produced on ALBION's farm in Hokkaido that is certified as meeting the Japanese Agricultural Standard (JAS) for Organic Plants. Grown as close to nature as possible, Kita no Hato is packed with natural goodness and vitality.

* Organic means meeting the "Organic JAS" standards set by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries in Japan.

ALBION's unique
extraction method

Job's tears seed extract*1

The seeds of Job's tears are very hard, even after the husk has been removed. Therefore, a unique process called “blasting” has been employed in order to extract the most concentrated ingredients from Kita no Hato.


Seeds of Job’s tears

By husking and polishing the seeds right before the extraction process, we are able to extract oil that is less prone to environmental damage caused by temperature and humidity, among others, enabling us to produce oil that is always fresh.

The History of SKICON


"Grand Duke" is launched as the company’s super-luxury brand.


"Skin Conditioner" (150ml) debuted as part of Grand Duke’s Essential Series.


Skin Conditioner is renamed "Yakuyo (lit. “medicated”) Skin Conditioner," enhancing user satisfaction without altering the formula.


Skin Conditioner is updated with a new formula designed for enhanced skin benefits and greater customer satisfaction. The new, more powerful formula contains the seed extracts of "Kita no Hato," a newly developed variety of Job’s tears. The extraction method was the fruit of 10 years of research.


"Kita no Hato" is successfully cultivated organically.


Updated to become "Skin Conditioner Essential N"
