The Perfectly Extraordinary
True Beauty, in the Japanese ideal, is a harmony of spirit and form: an outer reflection of the inner self. Shiseido introduced Japan's first toothpaste in 1888, Shiseido's Eudermine, a skin lotion so advanced that it is still sold today, was introduced in 1897, marking the shift from pharmaceuticals to cosmetics. They traveled abroad and incorporated aspects of French, arabesque, art nouveau, and art deco culture and design that still influence the current Shiseido aesthetic. In 1937, the company organized the Camellia Club for loyal customers, publishing a monthly magazine to provide them with beauty information. Membership eventually grew to ten million, or one in six of all Japanese women. Hanatsubaki, Shiseido's monthly magazine, is still published in Japan.
