History of Cosmetic Technologies

Shiseido Research Center has always been seeking innovation

The history of Shiseido's research and development started in 1897

Shiseido has achieved the development of high quality products based on cutting-edge dermatology and technology of formulation development for more than one century.

In 1897, Shiseido developed Eudermine, the skin lotion based on a Western pharmaceutical formula, and in 1916, established the research facility named the Cosmetics Department testing room that later became the current Research Center at Ginza 7-chome, Tokyo. Back in those days, a cosmetic company having an organization for R&D and quality assurance was revolutionary. This was rooted in the origin of Shiseido that started from a dispensary pharmacy based on novel Western technologies of medical and pharmaceutical sciences. Since then, Shiseido has accomplished a number of epoch-making study results. A lot of cosmetic products now known to everyone have been created through Shiseido's research and development activities.
