From Japan to the world, Bigen offers innovative hair colour products for dark-haired people. Responding to the needs of the time, we have always created hair colour products that bring positive energy while hair colouring.
Bigen’s story dates back to 1905, in Nagoya, Japan, when one man embarked on a journey to refine a simple, water-activated, powder hair dye over the course of a century.
With backgrounds in pharmaceuticals and being one of the early pioneers of hair dye formulation in the country, Bigen became a trusted market leader through not just the development of great products, but by defining the very quality and safety standards that Japan’s entire industry holds up to today.
Bigen 美源, which literally translates to “origin of beauty,” is now Japan’s No.1 hair colour brand for men and women, offering a palette of high-quality products across the world.
Our unyielding commitment to creating an innovative solution for greying hair originates in Japanese cultural values.
In Japanese history, black hair represents youth and beauty. It used to be considered shameful to show your grey hair.
For that reason, black hair has always been an attraction for Japanese people. In the 8th century, some Japanese poems sing about grey hair as a symbol of old age.
Today’s narrative around grey hair has been changing in many cultures. People all around the world are learning and loving who they are, accepting also their hair.
We believe beauty starts within. We want everyone to explore and realise their own unique beauty. When you need to colour your hair, we are here for you.
