Founded at 1930 in Japan, Taiki started as a family-owned sea sponge business. Taiki began to produce sea sponges for makeup application and became a globally recognized sea sponge supplier.
Because sea sponges grow bacteria and become hardened over time, Taiki searched for a safer, more effective alternative.
The synthetic rubber sponge was firstly introduce by Taiki - allergy-free and safe to use - improving the makeup application process for makeup industry.
With the development of synthetic sponges, Taiki has grown from a sea sponge supplier to an innovator.
As Taiki continued its research for more effective and safe products, cosmetic sponge evolved into applicators, which led to makeup brushes and many other application solutions.
To develop skincare category, our Japanese factories obtained quasi-drug certifications, and started to produce facial masks.
Taiki Group is now one of the top masks supplier with more than 150 million bags produced per year.
