Sensai
Sensai is a Japanese firm created in 1887. Its beginnings were like a textile company and over time its creators realized that their employees had smooth and surprisingly young hands. It was due to the daily work with the Silk created by the Koishimaru worm. From that moment Sensai begins to create its beauty products with this natural material. In 1937 it was already a consolidated leader in the cosmetic sector.

When Sensai started developing skin care, they become obsessed with the effectiveness and efficiency of their products.
