Purpose

We position Society (Activities to motivate and empower people) as one of our materiality issues, which includes “Improvement of consumers’ quality of life (QOL*).” We believe that protecting people’s health through our products in the face of environmental changes is an important social contribution of our core business. We have a long history of research into sunscreen products that protect skin from UV rays, as well as insights into effective sunscreen usage, and sell a broad range of high-quality sunscreen products. Support for UV-sensitive patients suffering from an intractable disease is an activity that can contribute to the resolution of social issues by taking advantage of our strengths.

  • *QOL: An acronym for Quality of Life

Words from patients and their families

We received a thank-you note from the families of XP patients: “Throughout the year, sunscreen products are indispensable in protecting the sensitive skin of children with XP from UV rays and the onset of skin cancer. Thank you very much for letting us use your products with peace of mind. We appreciate your heartfelt support, which helps us cherish our lives with our children.”
