Tatcha is a skincare company founded by Victoria Tsai and based out of San Francisco, CA. It offers a line of skincare products that are promised to use geisha "beauty rituals" to provide the user with soft, almost porcelain skin. These rituals are centuries old. The company makes a wide variety of individual beauty products, as well as "ritual sets" to address the needs of different types of skin. From a company's point of view, the company is not listed with the Better Business Bureau, but it has about 2,000 Twitter followers, over 8,500 Facebook likes, and almost 20 YouTube videos. In general, customer reviews of the company's products seem to have a mixed character, with a majority of complaints citing serious skin irritation. Some users even required medical help. Based on client reviews, this is due to the use of low-quality and cheap filler ingredients (for instance, talc), which are not listed on the official website of the company. Let us take a look at the ingredients used in standpoint Tatcha products.
Tatcha uses anti-aging mixture called the HADASEI-3 Bioactive Complex, in order to harness the active ingredients. Let's discuss them more closely. Green Tea Complete DNA Extract is responsible for the protection of your skin from premature aging due to UV damage. Japanese Rice Bran Extract is an unusual ingredient with anti-oxidant and moisturizing properties. Okinawa Red Algae Extract is said to improve the skin's texture and help your skin retain its moisture. Using these ingredients, Tatcha has created numerous formulas for their individual products. The company also uses three beauty "rituals" which are similar to those used by geisha. These are meant to address different skin conditions including oily, unbalanced skin; normal, combination skin; and dry, dehydrated skin.
According to the company, after implementing the upper mentioned ingredients into your skincare ritual on a daily basis, an 8-week independent clinical study showed a 155% moisturization increase, a 60% decrease in wrinkle depth, a 70% reduction in pore size, and a 50% reduction in the number of age spots. Unfortunately, these claims are made by the manufacturer on their official website only. There is no evidence on third-party websites proving that these studies really took the place and showed any positive results.

It is high time to check whether these products don't have any possible side effects.
The official website of the manufacturer does not mention any possible side effects or adverse reactions associated with the use of their products. However, based, on real customers' reviews, it can be concluded that the most common adverse reactions include redness, mild to severe skin irritation, itching, rash and swelling. But the number of numerous customer reviews about Tatcha beauty products simply impresses. One customer reports that she bought the company's skincare product to improve her skincare routine and to reveal exotic secrets of a geisha. She liked the packaging and started from using the deep rice enzyme powder. At first, it seemed to work as claimed (exfoliated nicely, removed blackheads) and the woman enjoyed the effect. She also bought camellia cleansing oil and silk moisturizing cream. She didn't like the smells of these products. She also applied the brightening serum at night which she didn't like at all. The woman followed all the routine recommendations suggested by the manufacturer and used all four products in combination. After one week she started to notice a scaly, transparent rash on her skin. It was constantly burning. Her skin had the texture of some sea creature. The woman asks everyone not to use these products in case of having any type of sensitive skin condition. The woman's state only got worse as she developed small and large pimples on her scaly rash. According to her words, she had an awful mess on her face. This skincare program completely changed the texture of her skin, she started to panic and visited a dermatologist. At present, she is using A and D ointment on her face in the evening and her rash has faded away a little. This ointment saved her and she claims that she will never use anything from this company again. She deeply regrets buying and using so many products from the same manufacturer. They probably contain some harsh ingredients or red algae that aggravates oily and sensitive skin.
One customer reports that all the positive Tatcha reviews on Youtube are actually paid reviews. She hated the cleanser, as it didn't make her face cleaner or smoother after using it. The woman experimented with the amount she used and never received the promised "milky texture". She tried cleansing with her fingers and used her Clairsonic with it. There were no products she liked from the company. She wanted to buy a toner, but Tatcha didn't have one. The woman tried all of the powders and saw completely no results. The eye cream was too heavy for her, so she gave it to her mother. The serum felt smelled and nice but did not improve the condition of her skin. The user liked the moisturizer until she noticed that her face became too oily. So, the woman stopped using the products. It was a waste of $50. Now she ignores the hype and skips Tatcha altogether. Let us take a look at the actual customers' reviews left online.
"Tatcha serum broke me out all over my lower chin and I was not able to get rid of the rash. I even went to an aesthetician to have it extracted but I still have them. I knew that it was the serum to blame because I didn't use anything else at that time. I probably have sensitive skin. In about a week I noticed that my face was covered with whiteheads all over my chin and around my mouth. I could find a cheaper product for better results"
"I started using the tatcha skin care line two months ago and I was quite satisfied within the first month. I loved the camelia and rice powder cleansing, so I ordered more. This week, I started noticing my forehead and nose broken out with acne. I stopped using the products and I am waiting for the acne to subside! I am disappointed and I am going to send all the products back!"
"I received the Tatcha sampler in a nice packaging. At first I had a strange tingling, almost burning sensation when using the products. It took ten minutes for it to subside. As a result, I was left with red cheeks, but that redness subsided after 24 hours. I used the products again and my face was on fire! My skin was inflamed, and I had terrible burning even after I washed my face"
Tatcha skincare products are available on the company's website, as well as at some retailers. All beauty rituals are priced at $395.00, including standard shipping. These include Dry Skin Ritual, Normal Skin Ritual and Oily Skin Ritual. The company also offers single beauty products. The Tatcha Sample Set costs $49.00, One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil is priced at $48.00, Rice Enzyme Powder can be bought for $65.00, Camellia Beauty Oil costs $125.00. There are some other products which can be found on the official website of the company.
Tatcha beauty products come with a number of disadvantages. The first one is the use of potentially dangerous ingredients that can result in serious allergic reactions in users. Many customers have complained of skin reactions, some of them even required medical help. The company's website lists only active ingredients, so you never know what reaction you may face with the products. Another drawback is the high price point, when compared to the competition. The company has been accused of using cheap "filler" ingredients in their products. With so many complaints I cannot recommend Tatcha products.
