Message from Kenji Oike, Chief Executive Officer.
We are the first manufacturer in the world to develop fullerene as a raw material for cosmetics. We started off as a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation in 2003 and as of April 1, 2020 we became a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation Life Sciences, in order to achieve further growth.
Fullerene is strong and long-lasting antioxidant with a variety of properties such as anti-inflammation. Since our establishment, we have been committed to researching and developing fullerene. In 2020, we succeeded in developing a natural and environmentally friendly plant-derived fullerene, which is also the world’s first product of its kind.
In 2022, we developed the world’s first cosmetic raw material Repista, which contains aza-oxohypoxanthine – a plant growth factor – and helps with skin rejuvenation. We are also striving to develop unique cosmetic raw materials utilizing materials and technologies such as fermentation available through Mitsubishi Corporation Life Sciences.
Our corporate philosophy is “Global Niche Top Company for Happiness”. We aim to continue to create highly functional cosmetic raw materials that are ground-breaking, taking into account sustainability, environmental preservation and contributing to the beauty, health and happiness of people around the world, including our employees.
We appreciate your continued support and patronage.
Chief Executive Officer Kenji Oike
