Shu Uemura was born in Tokyo in 1928; after a serious illness, during his teens, he enrolled at the Tokyo Beauty Academy being the only boy in a class of over 130 female students. After his studies he worked as a makeup artist for films of Japanese cinema and soon for the great film industry, Hollywood.
In 1960, Uemura launched its first cosmetic product, a cleansing oil that removes makeup and impurities while hydrates the skin (nowadays this oil remains as a very successful product). In the second half of the 60s, he returned to Japan to found the company Shu Uemura, which in the 80s became Shu Uemura Cosmetics, where we can also find a great variety of hair care products whose philosophy has always been to prioritize the health of the skin.
