We search for new ingredients, new materials, and make use of the latest science and technology to research and develop high-value-added cosmetics and cosmetic tools based on scientific evidence.
In addition, we work closely with related departments to gather accurate technical information and market information, and then quickly design and evaluate new products.
We are also actively engaged in joint research with universities and other research institutes to further enhance our basic research.
