Where to Buy?

All the Japanese products listed in RatzillaCosme are not officially distributed outside of East Asia. Many major brands are widely distributed in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, and the Philippines — but, most remain Japan-exclusive.

Some important things to note:

  • Japanese cosmetics made for the domestic market (i.e. Japan) do not have production nor expiration date printed. They are unnecessary in Japan since products are repackaged (and reformulated) on a near annual basis. If you see e-tailers listing them, they’re most likely lying!
  • To ensure freshness and authenticity, buy directly from Japan.
  • I only use official product names but be aware that many stockists do not follow official information so names can greatly vary.
  • Many major Japanese cosmetics brands reformulate their products for exporting to nearby countries, but keep the same packaging design and product name. They may appear identical but ingredients actually slightly differ.

I strongly advise doing some research first before buying online! Otherwise, you might not get what you’re expecting — or worse, you might not even know it if you get an expired or the wrong product.


Note of warning: RatzillaCosme provides information on Japanese cosmetics that are Japan-made for the domestic (Japanese) market only. Buyers beware!
