Dr Haruma Kimoto was born in Yokohama, Japan in 1952. He had a lifelong interest in physiology of the human body and gained his doctorate from Tokyo Medical University in 1980.

He went on to specialise in dermatology (the branch of medicine concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of skin disorders) seemingly as the result of his wife Yuna suffering from years of dermatitis herself.

Dr Kimoto began the process of creating innovative skincare products in the 1990's but did not release his flagship product, the simply amazing 'Original Foot Peel Formula' for commercial sale and distribution until 2014. These-days buzz word ingredients such as 'fruit acids' are thrown around with abandon, but Dr Kimoto was a pioneer with these alternative, natural ingredients and conducted thorough research on how these chemicals interacted with our skin and how best to harness their natural powers.

In the years that have followed, Dr Kimoto's foot peel has been a best seller worldwide and attempts to copy his unique formula have been numerous. Whilst we make no secret as to the ingredients in this wonder peel, we do not disclose exact quantities of the ingredients used and as such no-one is able to completely replicate his formula.

Dr Kimoto sadly died in 2018 aged only 66. His family decided to honour his legacy and establish Dr Kimoto as an trademarked brand and to continue with sales of his products. 

In the coming months, we will also be able to offer our customers products from other carefully selected Japanese brands - please watch this space!
