I love working with vegan ingredients such as natural plant oils, butters and waxes.
I had the privilege to interview Ayu Carlton founder of TOKYO FACTORY a Handcrafted Luxurious Beauty & Home company. She carefully chooses what goes into her products and makes them in small batches with love. Read the interview to find out more.
What inspired you to start your business?
I started making natural soap and body care products as a hobby. I have super sensitive skin, so making my own skincare with safe and natural ingredients appealed to me. I started my company called TOKYO FACTORY in 2009. I now have two brands, TOKYO ORGANICS (Organic Skin Care Products) and TOKYO FACTORY (Home Products).
What is the brand’s philosophy?
Organic and 100% Natural. I carefully choose what goes into my skin care products, and I test my recipes many times until I’m completely happy with them. I love working with vegan ingredients such as natural plant oils, butters and waxes. Each ingredient has its own natural benefits and unique characteristics.
What has been your greatest achievement so far?
We are now a part of Martha Stewart American Made.
