Our efforts

For skin and environment
Gentle cosmetics
It starts with making a field.

Ashiya Town, Fukuoka Prefecture, is a scenic land facing the Genkai Sea. The original cosmetic brand “NEMOHAMO” is created there. Various plants such as panax ginseng cultivated and harvested in the company's exclusive farm that has acquired organic JAS certification and the adjacent satoyama are used as raw materials for "NEMOHAMO". We protect the surrounding rich soil by methods that do not discharge industrial waste and wastewater in the production process, and we do everything possible in the process from raw materials to manufacturing processes and sales, such as how to grow plants, the thoughts of producers, and how to use by-products. We guarantee traceability and ensure product safety.

Fair trade
Beyond that.
From the purchase of cocoa beans
Until the utilization of husk.

The original sweets brand "RAU" is a brand that practices "Farm to Bar", where everything from selecting raw materials to manufacturing and selling is done by themselves. Chocolatiere meets directly with the producers of the original land to carefully select pesticide-free Costa Rican cacao, and trades through fair trade to maintain an equal relationship.
In addition, the outer skin (husk) of cacao beans is usually discarded, but we focused on its high nutritional value and flavor, and by our original food brand "GOOD NATURE MARKET", "cacao tea" and "cacao curry" tailoring. It is an attempt to utilize the blessings of nature to the very end.
