We elucidated the cause of sagging for the aged appearance and discovered the Dynamic Belt, which is a system where the skin resists the deformation caused by gravity. The Dynamic Belt is a mechanism where the hair muscles on the face at high density resists gravity.
Our new discovery revealed that the downregulation of IL-34 (interleukin 34), a protein secreted in the epidermis, skews the M1/M2 balance, a balance between two types of macrophages (M1 macrophages and M2 macrophages), which has previously been found to be involved in skin aging and collagen metabolism.
We have developed a new replaceable packaging for cosmetics that contributes to the reduction of environmental impact by applying LiquiForm®, a technology that realizes “bottle-molding” and “filling” in a single step into cosmetics for the first time in the world.
