Creating a new market through the integration of foundation and medicated skincare
~Introduction of Shiseido “Medicated Care-Hybrid Foundation”~
Shiseido Company, Limited (“Shiseido”) will promote the new beauty practice of “skin conditioning for women who wear foundation for 3,500 hours a year*1” through “Medicated Care-Hybrid Foundation*2” across multiple brands, starting on Thursday, March 21, 2019.
Our survey found that women wear foundation for as many as 3,500 hours every year. However, about 60% of respondents hold a negative impression that foundation is not good for the skin, with some not using it or suspending its use.*3
Shiseido aims to turn this negative impression into a positive one and make those 3,500 hours a richer time for all consumers, including those who wear foundation regularly and those who do not.
To that end, we created “Medicated Care-Hybrid Foundation.” With the motto of “improving one’s skin complexion with 3,500 hours of foundation time,” we will provide a new option for foundation to consumers and create a new market.
*1 Shiseido Survey: 20,000 female respondents nationwide, aged 15-69; Average time wearing foundation: at least 5 days a week, 8 hours a day.
*2 A quasi-drug foundation with a combination of foundation and medicated skincare.
*3 Shiseido Survey: 4,123 female respondents nationwide, aged 15-69; Internet Survey, July 2018.
