What does Godai represent?

Each of the five elements represents a certain tendency in the world, and together they explain the nature of things, actions, societies, and people. Godai is inspired by the Japanese belief that we are all born with specific levels of energy from the five elements. Overtime, we can lose these energies due to negative experiences in the world, whether from trauma, shock, or other negative elements. Godai soaps nourish the skin through the five elements in order to help restore your lost energies.
