By focusing on the use of quality plants, grown to Japan’s exacting agricultural standards, Waphyto transforms ingredients from around the world into products developed by Atsuko Morita.
With the power of plants and Japanese biomethodological advancements, Morita has created products that enrich and beautify life, as well as increase health from birth onwards. Waphyto products support a healthy, beautiful lifestyle.
Plant biomethodology connects people and nature. Waphyto founder Atsuko Morita has spent a lifetime amassing knowledge of the plant sciences – her award-winning scientific discoveries made her an authority of biomethodological phytotherapy.
Plant biomethodology, as Morita put it together, is a combination of phytotherapy as systematized in France with traditional Japanese herbological knowledge as first formalized in Japan. With the help of modern biotechnology, using genetic editing, Morita has been able to deeply study the character of various plants, learning which ingredients work best in her innovative, targeted products.
A lifetime of health and beauty
Atsuko Morita, a phytotherapist, draws on her years of experience to understand female self-care, fertility issues, and the importance of reproductive health – including nutritional supplements and self-care products.

From Mikawa, Japan
Located on the geological Median Tectonic Line, the longest fault zone in Japan, the Mikawa Region is one of the most energized places on Earth, and is considered one of the best places to live in Japan. The shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu, who ruled this region, was himself an accomplished herbalist, and was thus able to live a long and healthy life, even during the dangerous Warring States period, thanks to the soil of Mikawa, which yielded a treasure trove of vitamin-rich plants.
We chose Mikawa as our base for securing our ingredients because of its rich soil and historically relevant location. Because of this, Waphyto’s products are safe, high-quality, and are recognized by experts in geology, agriculture and pharmacology.
We are committed to the revitalization of the Mikawa Region, due to its unique history and geographic specialties; the plant products used in the creation of Waphyto products are sure to be of the highest quality and potency.
Atsuko Morita, our founder, is a phytotherapist who was born and raised in Japan. When she developed asthma in the course of her professional life as a flight attendant, along with dry skin and hair, she turned to a French friend, who recommended phytotherapy techniques. Over time, using phytotherapeutic products, the symptoms of asthma gradually dissipated and she started to notice other beneficial effects. She left the airline permanently and went to France to study botanical therapy at the medical school of Paris 13 University.
As Morita majored in plant pharmacology, researching cosmetics, she realized that botanical therapy offered support to all generations, and she began developing a series of products that could be used throughout a lifetime. She won numerous awards, and by 2019 she became convinced that the power of plants and biotechnology could support people’s health and beauty from the inside as well as the outside. Waphyto was born.
