Company profile


We contribute to society by satisfying
the fundamental human need to stay young and
beautiful forever.

Sansho Seiyaku Co., Ltd. was founded in 1960 with its corporate philosophy: “We contribute to society by satisfying the fundamental human need to stay young and beautiful forever”.

Since then, we have been devoting ourselves to developing cosmetic ingredients that treat skin and hair problems. Our ingredients are derived mainly from natural raw materials in order to pursue both safety and effectiveness.

And in 1993 we launched our own skin care brand DERMED so that we can provide highly effective cosmetics containing our ingredients. The name “DERMED” was coined from “Dermatology”, “Medical” and “Medicine”, the three words well-acquainted to us.

We spend long time to develop effective ingredients and formulations, because it is not our objective to launch new products one after another with just slight changes. We believe that we can satisfy our customers' needs to stay young and beautiful with our highly effective cosmetics containing ingredients of our own.

We will continue to strive to build a brand highly appreciated by customers of a wide age range.
