Black Paint SG: Your Trusted Organic Skincare Brand from Kyoto, Japan

Originating from Kyoto, Japan, skincare brand BLACK PAINT® did not start out as a commercial endeavor. It all began when founder Miyuki Maeda’s daughter was diagnosed with a serious kidney disease doctors deemed incurable. Undeterred, Miyuki studied modern physiology, bacteriology and traditional healing methodologies around the world to find a treatment for her daughter. 



She chanced upon the notion of beneficial bacteria. More specifically, reading up on enteric bacteria was particularly insightful. These are bacteria living in our digestive system, processing food, releasing nutrients and supporting our immune system. Miyuki realized that if digestive bacteria have such an important role, so must bacteria on the skin. She placed her focus on staphylococcus epidermis, whose job is to form the sebum layer that keeps skin hydrated, pH balanced and protected from environmental pollutants. While most skincare products aim to sterilize the skin with anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and synthetic preservatives, the BLACK PAINT® system is somewhat paradoxically formulated to nourish the bacteria for them to perform their functions optimally. 


BLACK PAINT® skincare products are made from natural, organic materials blended from more than 100 types of plant oils, 50 types of essential oils and Kishu Binchotan Charcoal. BLACK PAINT® works to build the harmony between our skin and nature.

The resulting formula for the BLACK PAINT® soap has won the Grand Gold Medal of Monde Selection Award (a globally-renowned award run by International Institute for Quality Selections, Belgium that evaluates quality of each product and grant them quality label) for 7 consecutive years since 2009 under the category of ‘Cosmetics & Toiletries’.


BLACK PAINT® 4-step Pore Care

Our skin renews itself every 28 days, sloughing off old dead skin cells (keratin layer) and replacing them with fresh new ones. During this period of renewal, it is important for us take pores cleansing in facial and hair wash seriously.


The BLACK PAINT® formula is designed to remove clogging from pores, thereafter hydrating, nourishing and protecting them. It does this by supporting skin microbiota, microscopic organisms living in human body vital to skin health. These bacteria digest skin oil, dead cells and minerals from perspiration, turning them into a natural moisturizing cream that acts as a barrier between the inner skin and the outer environment.

Easily followed, BLACK PAINT® has designed their 4-step pore care for you to achieve inner and outer beauty in 4 simple steps!
