Global Network

The global network that supports the technology of the Shiseido Group

Since its beginning as a Western-style pharmacy in 1872, Shiseido has continued to develop products backed by science and technology. We are actively establishing global technology centers to realize our corporate philosophy, ‘inspire a life of beauty and culture’. Including 2 research bases and 3 factories in Japan, Shiseido has 7 R&D centers and 11 production sites worldwide in Asia Pacific, Europe and the US. Our overseas R&D centers research the skin types and beauty practices of our local customers and focus on developing products that incorporate regional characteristics. We continue to provide safe and high-quality products and services to our customers around the world. The vision that was born in a small laboratory continues to be passed on around the world today at our global R&D and production facilities.
