- Background
MTG's flagship brand ReFa, created in 2009, began with a single beauty roller and surpassed 10 million units shipped* in 2018. ReFa's innovative products are not bound by stereotypes and seek to positively transform people's lifestyle.

In 2019, the tenth year since the brand was launched, MTG debuted its new "ReFa BEAUTECH" series, which reproduces the skills of professional Japanese hair stylists with its unique technology, and launched the "ReFa BEAUTECH DRYER" as its first product. This hair dryer, developed in collaboration with Japan's top salons, has been extremely well received and has greatly increased MTG's share in the Japanese hair salon market since its first year.

※Actual results from February 2009 to July, 2018
