A Japanese beauty expert was in town recently. Shoichi Tanimura’s expertise along with a line beauty products are now being introduced in the market, thanks to Hair Asia President Evelyn Alvaran-Cruz at the Salon Spectacular 2018, an annual (competition and trade fair) event that her group Hair Asia is organizing. It is happening on Nov. 20 at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.
Tanimura and his team from Hair Hospital Group (Kami no Byou-in, Co. Ltd.) will present to the local market the Danae Premium Line products of high-end shampoo and hair treatments comprised of G-Polyphenol, SG Cleansing, Core Treatment, KK Treatment, Hema-K, Hair Softener-N, Miracorale, Chito Refresher and Repair Treatment-P.
He says that the products are all water based and the water used in these products is from the natural springs of Gifu, Japan.
Tanimura is also famous in Japan for his Hair Respirator, a product he developed after more than 18 months of intense research. He describes it as something that acts like a “respiratory organ” for hair, allowing the hair to “breathe again.”
Tanimura conducts over 200 seminars annually in Japan where he teaches beauty techniques, theories and methods, including human resources training and development, and business management.
He’s been featured on Japanese television (NHK) introduced as The Temple of Refuge for Troubled Hair.
Surprisingly, Tanimura has been traveling back and forth to the Philippines the last 17 years now, not as a businessman but as a philanthropist. He has built a school for the Aetas in Pampanga, which has taught the indigenous people to read and write, among other things.
It is just now that he’s bringing his expertise and products to the Philippines as part of his continuing love for this country he considers his second home.
Tanimura will be back in time for Salon Spectacular 2018 at World Trade Center on Nov. 20.
Apart from introducing his products to the Philippine market, Tanimura is also putting up his own salon, SANC Hair Clinic at Okada Hotel. It is slated to open in March next year.

‘Let’s Do Lunch’
What will you have for lunch? Filipino, Italian, Japanese, Chinese cuisine? Or all of those?
Well, on Nov. 11, you can have those virtually while watching the new cooking/talk show on GMA News TV (Ch. 11 on free-to-air TV), and it goes on the air every Sunday, 11 to 11:30 a.m. with chef Sharwin Tee as host.
If you’ve been watching cooking shows on any channel available on your cable TV provider, like Food Channel, AFC (Asian Food Channel), tlc, FYI and many others, you’d notice that Let’s Do Lunch’s format is very different as it doesn’t only show the audience the way to cook a dish and what recipes must be used, but it is also a talk show with guests that have made a positive impact in the society. The chef/host will take a jab on them so they can share their secrets to success; give the audience a peek into their mindsets and beliefs, through, as we say, the lens of food.
The interviews take place over a shared meal that chef Sharwin cooked for them in a cozy setting.
Among the celebrities that are lined up to appear in the show are Julie San Jose, Kylene Alcantara, Derrick Monasterio, and beauty queen Mariel de Leon.
If you’re unfamiliar with chef Sharwin Tee, you can log on and go to YouTube and Facebook and search for Curiosity Got the Chef, a long-running cooking and travel show on TV, and on the web Bet You Didn’t Know and Not Safe for the Hugry.
Sharwin is know for his quirky yet innovative twists on traditional Filipino and Fil-Chi cuisine after graduating from the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts in Vacouver, Canada. He is also an author with two books published Curiosity Got The Chef, The Cookbook and the recently released So, You Want To Be Chef?, a memoir chronicling his journey to cooking, from a six-year old kid mesmerized by a cooking show to becoming what he is now, a true inspiration for many aspiring chefs.
Sharwin also cooked for a number of dignitaries and social and political celebrities like the former Canadian Ambassador Christopher Thornley and current Canadian Ambassador to Manila John Holmes at his residence, Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, Vice-President Leni G. Robredo, Top Chef champion Paul Qui, the Voice’s Dia Frampton, and Pinoy rock star Ely Buendia.
Sharwin has also worked with global consumer brands like Hunt’s and Spam, processed food company Nutri Asia, convenience store Mini Stop, meat wholesaler Bounty Fresh, wine company Casillero del Diablo, and the United States Potato Board mainly to conduct seminars, create recipes and hold cooking demonstrations.
He is also an advocate of education and reading regularly holding pop-up dinners the entire proceeds of which go to building pubic school libraries. To date, he has held some 20 pop-up dinners in the country and overseas, all sold out in San Francisco, Detroit, St. Louis, Seattle, and Chicago.
