TOKYO. - Wednesday, April 9th 2014 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE) Shiseido Co., Ltd. (TOKYO:4911) has long focused its research on skin immunity as an important means of maintaining skin’s health, and protecting it from external and internal stressors that can lead to dermatologic problems.

Shiseido has applied for a patent for this technology in nine countries, including Japan. Furthermore, with a prototype serum incorporating this multiple component, Shiseido proved for the first time that the skin’s self-pro ... Read more »
