Inspired by the Japanese belief that caring for yourself, your society and the world around you is the key to simple, beautiful living.
TRADITION & INNOVATION
We blend and balance the rich treasures of Japanese tradition and folklore with innovation and technology. Our products are created with and promote balance - from the philosophy that inspires us, to the trusted ingredients in our formulas, to the ground-breaking, plastic-reducing AIR bottle.
RESPECT & RESPONSIBILITY
Respect for our consumer and a sense of responsibility is at the core of everything we do. Through thoughtful design, careful intent, and purposeful products, we show consideration, compassion, and a commitment to pioneering a more gentle, sustainable way of living.
THE KIREI LIFESTYLE
As our guiding principle, Kirei goes beyond external beauty to include health, wellness, and peace of mind. The Kirei lifestyle is about enjoying today, knowing that those joys will be there tomorrow. It is expressing who you truly are, with the confidence that you're walking the right path - even in the smallest moments. It's about recognizing that we are all connected and inspiring positive action. And it's about making every day more beautiful for ourselves, creating a wave of good in our society, and making an impact on the world around us.
We are connected to nature, so we must take care of it.
There is comfort and security where there is order and cleanliness.
When there is too much, even valuable things lose their value.
KAO creates purposeful products created with great respect for their consumer that enrich the lives of people around the world. Built on a 130-year legacy of innovation and pure practices, KAO is committed to walking the right path for a more sustainable way of living, to help us all live a beautiful life, inside and out.
