Company profile


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

Sansho Pharmaceutical 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, over 130 years counting from the establishment of the former Jinnai Sansho-do Pharmacy, we have been devoting ourselves to developing cosmetic ingredients that treat aging skin and hair mainly from natural raw materials in order to pursue both safety and effectiveness.

DERMED is the aging-care brand we, specialists of ingredients, launched. We conduct all of its processes from developing ingredients and formulations to manufacturing. Development of effective ingredients and research on how to deliver the benefits of the ingredients to skin and hair takes time. Still, we are willing to spend time because it is not our objective to launch new products with slight changes. We believe that we can satisfy customers' needs to “stay young and beautiful” with our truly effective cosmetics containing our unique ingredients.

For our brand to be highly appreciated by customers of a wide age range, we will continue to strive.
