Their quest for Earth-friendly and natural living essentials began over twenty years ago, when the creator's mother, Noriko, was searching for soap and detergent and could not find anything on the market that met her ideals. She taught herself how to make soap and studied traditional herbal and dyeing practices. She still helps her family understand the benefits of using not only natural ingredients but homemade dyes. With the launch of WATO, they are thrilled to share this journey with you.
WATO believes that using natural dyes feels good on our bodies, is gentle on our eyes, and celebrates the beauty of nature. They believe in building a sustainable future for all of us — what goes down the drain goes into the Earth, after all. When you hold a bar of WATO soap, you have Mother Earth in your hands.
At WATO, they create all of their products under the guiding principles of Japanese remedies, drawing on ancient knowledge of nourishment and healing through herbs and natural materials. Their team believes in the restorative power of these plants and their essences
