Under our corporate mission “BEAUTY INNOVATIONS FOR A BETTER WORLD”, Shiseido R&D aims to drive innovation through a comprehensive approach that is not limited to cosmetics.

Towards the Realization of a Personal Beauty Wellness Company

With the aim of becoming a “Personal Beauty Wellness Company”, which will allow individuals to realize health and beauty throughout their lifetime, we will utilize our strength accumulated through years of skin research to obtain and analyze data on the skin, body, and mind, which will in turn enable us to provide solutions combined with diversified approaches including ingestible products, devices, and exercise.

Shiseido R&D Philosophy

DYNAMIC HARMONY is derived from the origins of Shiseido, a fusion of the Western science and Eastern wisdom, which has been pursued since our founding in the Meiji era as Japan’s first private Western-style pharmacy. We have redefined and articulated our strengths as our unique R&D concept of creating unique unprecedented value by fusing seemingly opposite, oil-and-water values.
