A stunning tool, inspired by nature, designed for beauty and precision.
The design was inspired by the efforts of Niigata prefecture to save the Japanese ibis bird (''Toki'' in Japanese). Increasing awareness about the issue was important, and Suwada helped by developing a new product that was taken around the world. After two decades of efforts, Toki birds have been reintroduced into the wild.
What to know about cuticles
We only remove dead skin from the tip of our nails. The cuticles are different from the eponychium, which is the living skin at the base of your nails and your body needs it to protect itself against foreign particles. Eponychium does sometimes have a dead skin part and we can indeed remove that.
Start removing your cuticles after a warm shower. Otherwise, soak them in warm water for 3-5 minutes. Check what part looks like it needs care. Any dry skin you had noticed, any long cuticles.
Gently cut off any parts of the eponychium that are too dry (dead skin). Once you have cleaned it, push it back with a cuticle pusher and clean any cuticles left. Careful not to tear or strain your skin.
Use a dry cloth to dry the fingertips. Moisturize and massage your hand and fingers.
