Makanai was born in 2004 as a tribute to the century-old tradition of goldbeaters manually making gold leaves at its parent company, Yoshitaka Gold-Leaf Foundry.
The gold foundry was established in 1899 in Kanazawa, the central part of the mainland of Japan. Women who worked in the foundry made gold leaves by laboriously pounding solid gold interleaved between layers of paper into microscopically thin 1/10,000 millimeter sheets.
They were exposed to harsh working conditions. Intense heat, extreme dryness, and minimal ventilation were the daily environment.
The working conditions at the foundry took a toll on the skin of the skilled gold leaf artisans - all women - because of the extreme heat and dryness.
Yet, even elderly workers had surprisingly soft and beautiful hands that looked years younger than their faces. Why?
They discovered that submerging their hands into the naturally fermented paste used for making the washi paper to place between sheets of gold leaf - was the reason. Plus their hands were constantly touching gold!
The Yoshitaka foundry ladies began to make their own skincare products with the materials at hand. As a result, their skin became more radiant and beautiful.
This secret knowledge was passed on from mother to daughter, generation to generation.
After a hundred years of trial and error, their secret skincare recipe was born.
