Shiseido Clé de Peau Beauté Adopts “Synactif Sound” Hospitality through sound for the Synactif Line Treatment

Shiseido Group’s high prestige brand “Clé de Peau Beauté” has added “Synactif Sound” to the “Soin Synactif” treatment program for its premium line “Synactif.” The addition will further enhance customer experiences.

Melodious affirmation of“vibrant beauty only possible through skin purification”

Synactif: Beginning with purification, the exquisite harmony of selected items takes your skin to undiscovered heights and draws out the radiance of your presence. “Synactif Sound” was developed as music software to further enhance the pleasure of treatment, as well as the sensation and effects of the products used, by adding “hospitality through sound” to “treatment through touch.” In developing the sound, Shiseido worked with sonologist and composer Yota Morimoto, who works mainly in Europe. Morimoto created music to align with Shiseido’s exclusively developed software. The collaboration resulted in piano, violin, and cello trios which express the effect of each treatment process. It was composed with gentle undulating patterns made by the frequencies of the “Synactif Sound” music and the electrocardiogram waveforms* during treatment.
