Shodai Face Wash


Shodai Face Wash


Our signature face wash, blended with hiba (Japanese Cypress tree) oil, green tea, onsen water and sake. Cleanly removes oil and dirt without over-exfoliating. Designed for everyday use, it pairs nicely with our face moisturizer (you saw that one coming).

The natural hiba oil gives the product a light, refreshing, woody scent, somewhat similar to cedar.

  1. :

    The Shodai face wash is an outstanding product! It thoroughly cleans and refreshes my face, without feeling soapy or astringent. The scent has a very subtle woody / pine note that is pleasant, but not at all perfumey…. if that’s a thing. A little bit goes a long way, with an amount about the size of a pea (or better yet, an edamame) lathering up nicely to cover my face and forehead. Thanks! Looking forward to more products in the future.

    Shodai is the most balanced face wash I have ever used. It leaves my skin cleansed and conditioned without excess shine or oiliness. The rich texture of the cleanser and its woody scent are sensual, the latter being utterly unique. Truly exceptional. Bravo!

    Can we just take a second and give Shodai a standing ovation for this outstanding facial wash. I have used several face washes in the past and this one is my go to product. I’m combo to oily skin and this wash leaves my skin feeling clean and balanced. Most of the face washes I’ve used have dried me out out just messed up my skin but Shodai has truly been saving my skin these past 3 months of using the product. I love how it has green tea, sake and onsen water these are some awesome ingredients. The green tea is packed full of antioxidants helping slow down the aging process. With the sake having amino acids which also will help plump and brighten the skin. While the onsen water will help balance and rejuvenate the skin. Finally i have a holy grail product that is going to stay in my regimen. So if you are a really active guy , oily or combo to oily skin type this is an awesome product and I highly suggest you try it out. Thank you once again Shodai men can’t wait to see the growth of this brand I know it’s going to be phenomenal.
