I met Noriko through a friend in common while spending a weekend out of town with my kids. We clicked right away, sharing the same passion for natural skincare and cosmetics, herb teas and slow living. Just the mindful things we like.

She has an extended background in the beauty industry having worked for a long time for one of the leading Japanese cosmetic companies.

In the contrary to what she did for them, her brand, Monte Sapo is entirely based on the wellbeing of the user and the preservation of the environment. Combining both, her products are non toxic, hand made, effective and sustainable.
