In the present age, we are faced with uncontrollable and often invisible stress factors each and every day. With both our way of life and work styles constantly changing, the burden brought on by pressure is ever increasing and has become a major social issue amongst our generation.
Furthermore, a lack of stress relief such as travel and social gatherings over the last year and a half have led to the need for new tools to be developed to help us control our daily balance of mind and body.

Relaxation brand Chapon was born in response to our ever-changing diversifying lifestyles, as a way to help keep us happy and healthy in the modern age.

Chapon is an aromatic bath salt brand that can help you feel at home and escape from the numerous stressful worries of life. It is the world’s first custom-made bath salt company that recognises the healing power of natural essential oils and the importance of diverse individual tastes when it comes to relaxing within aromatic baths.

According to the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development), the economic loss due to "mental fatigue" in Japan over the last year amounted to 1.2 trillion yen.
By focusing on natural essential oils and bathing habits, Chapon aims to help as many people as possible to achieve valuable positivity in their lives. Keeping this in mind, the brand has developed their services on the concept of ‘a little bit of luxury once a week’.
