(images from hacci1912.com)

.

According to this Facebook post, Japanese beauty brand Hacci will be launched in Taiwan on October 1st. I have noticed that Hacci has been receiving more and more media coverage in Japan in the last couple of years due to its continuous releases of new products and its increasing availability in upmarket department stores.

I do love my fragrances, but, when the weather is warmer, I sometimes reach for lighter options such as body mists. (I hope my readers in the UK are enjoying the nice weather (despite the occasional rain).) One body mist that I recently purchased is Paul & Joe‘s Hair & Body Mist, which was released as part of Paul & Joe’s holiday 2013 bodycare collection. (It is not a seasonal limited-edition item.)

Japan Cosmetic Industry Association 1(image from www.jcia.org)

.

One of my readers, Kerry, has mentioned her concern (which I am sure is shared by many others) about using beauty products manufactured in Japan since the accident at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant as a result of the earthquake on March 11th.

To ensure the safety of the production process and of the use of the products, Japan Cosmetic Industry Association issued a statement on March 30th. You can read the English version here. This is a direct translation from the Japanese version, which has been posted on official websites of many Japanese beauty brands.
