Our Business

Research & Development

Our company asset is the extensive number of prototype formulations we have accumulated over the years.

With our evaluation and analytical equipment, we are constantly working to create original formulations. To improve workflow and communication between the sales department and research & development teams, our new Tokyo and Osaka Laboratories are all located on one floor. We actively keep in touch with our customers to create new products.

Our new Tokyo Laboratory was built with the best setting in mind. We will answer to your demands with accommodation and flexibility.

Like the Osaka Laboratory, our Tokyo Laboratory is located on the high floor of the building with wide open spaces. There are no walls separating the sales department and the laboratory, allowing research and development ideas to flow freely. This environment allows the sales department to be in direct contact with the customers’ ideas and images. At times, our R&D can accompany our customers to explain the technical aspects of the formulation we have developed.

We can quickly embody your product based on our vast collection of formulations with over 4,000 prototypes created annually.

Our strength is our ability to propose new products with your ideas based on the prototypes that we have accumulated over the years. Plus we actively seek new raw materials from overseas and we can propose various suggestions, such as brand new formulations or products that are conscientious of your budget.

Our assessment equipment allows us to evaluate efficiency based on scientific proof.

Recent trend suggests cosmetic and quasi-drugs to have scientific data and evidence to support claims. Our evaluation and analytical equipment allows us to assess our products. To obtain reliable data one needs to set up a dependable measuring environment. We are equipped with temperature and humidity controlled testing rooms that allow us to collect evidence data to show how our formulation influences the skin condition.
