DHC Brand Story

Back in the 70s, an enterprising young businessman named Yoshida owned a popular education company in Tokyo. Believing knowledge is the key to enlightenment, Yoshida was naturally curious about the world beyond Japan, so he packed up and travelled to Europe. In Spain, he met an olive farmer whose family had been producing the highest grade of organic oil available for more than 200 years. Immediately he made the connection between traditional Japanese herbology and the antioxidant properties of olive oil, and a new skincare philosophy was born.

Our entire line was founded on the principles our first product: Olive Virgin Oil. It’s sourced from organic Spanish olives that are handpicked when they’re most rich in nutrients. The oil is extracted from the crush before the first cold pressing, then carefully filtered in our state-of-the-art labs in Japan. The result is the premium, non-comedogenic, organic virgin olive oil we continue to produce today.
