Our Mission

With a respectful nod to our Japanese heritage, Shiseido Americas is focused firmly on the future of beauty, fully embracing the entrepreneurial, pioneering spirit that has long defined our region.

An organizational center for technological innovation and creative development, our essence lives in our people, connected by the rich tapestry of human diversity that has always been the heart of our company. Shiseido’s cultural crossroads meet in the Americas and we draw daily upon the variety of skills, experiences and perspectives of our fellow employees.

Our M&A strategy is designed to propel all of Shiseido from strength to strength, expanding the breadth and depth of our expertise and securing the future of our company.

Proudly headquartered in the Americas are five of Shiseido Group’s most dynamic brands, bareMinerals, BUXOM, NARS, Laura Mercier and Drunk Elephant. Individually, they cross the spectrum of beauty, each with an exceptionally compelling story, a unique range of offerings, and a diverse community of loyal customers. As a collection of iconic brands, they represent the future of beauty, combining powerful innovation with a vision rooted in quality, and shaped by experience.

As Shiseido’s Global Center for Makeup development, we consider makeup creation to be an art form, a discipline unto itself, wherein our brands create the vast, ever-evolving pallet of colors by which a new generation of consumers can express their true selves.

As the home of the Digital Center of Excellence, we operate on the front lines of the technological revolution that has re-ignited the world of beauty, paving the way for Shiseido to emerge as the industry’s most digitally advanced company.

Our Technology Acceleration Hub builds upon Shiseido’s storied legacy of invention, challenging contemporaneous definitions of beauty, and exploring heretofore unimagined possibilities that the blinding pace of science and technology has laid bare.

Our aspiration, always, is to be a source of talents, of best practices, and of the innovation that drives Shiseido forward. Our ambition is to be a strong and healthy source of business, and to contribute broadly and boldly to our company’s success. Together, these form the principal mission of Shiseido Americas.

For us, the future of beauty lies not just in brick and mortar or even in digital and social, but in the convergence of science and soul, and at the summit of art and authenticity.
