Who We Are
We are a small US business, woman-owned, technology-focus and imaginative creator of skincare solutions
The idea of SONATAP started from its inventor’s imagination of being able to automate her existing skincare routine with an all-in-1 device. As a skincare addict who is obsessed with skincare researches since her graduate student days, she learnt more than a decade ago that good skincare can be achieved without necessarily spending lot of money. However, time and effort were always the required factors. This became a problem later in life - as she advanced in her corporate career as a business controller, she struggled to maintain the same skincare routine throughout the years with busier schedule and increased travels
After years of searching and hoping for someone to make a product that addresses this problem to no avail, she set out to create a solution of her own and founded the company in 2019. A two-year long process of extensive research and development followed to turn the idea into reality. Driven by fascination for cutting-edge technologies, our founder taught herself 3D Modeling and utilized at-home 3D Printing to create the first functional prototypes of SONATAP from her Portland-based home. With these proven-working prototypes, she successfully pursued and teamed up with one of the World’s Leading Cosmetic Packaging Manufacturers to bring SONATAP into production and into consumers’ hand in late 2021
"Through every stages of life..."
SONATAP was born out of my imagination that one can complete their skincare routine even while making breakfast in the morning or resting on bed at night. It came from a desire to maintain good skincare through every stages of life
Behind our name
Our brand name, SONATAP, was formed with the combination of the words "sonata" and "tap". The word "sonata" means a complex composition for an instrument, and "tap" means a device that controls liquid flow (alternatively, it can also be interpreted as the motion and sound created when applying skincare). These two words sum up the meaning of SONATAP perfectly as a device that controls a complex set of skincare products to enable effortless application
