Chemical-free, plant-based, functional skincare (cream) containing “Neonisin-e®*”, which is kind to the body and the Earth.

A skincare product made for all humankind using the 21st century space technology, “Space Cosme Facepeace” is gender and age neutral.

Containing a patented formulation of lactic acid bacteria peptide “Neonisin-e®︎”* ”(Patent No. 6523473),it is the world’s first chemical-free (contains no chemical substances), plant-based (using 100% plant ingredients),and 100% biodegradable (all components will be decomposed in the natural environment or in the body) cosmetic item (cream) that is kind to the body and the Earth, and meets specifications for the use by astronauts.

“Space Cosme” has been developed by applying the innovative technology of ORALPEACE to the field of skincare.

When “ORALPEACE” was selected as a candidate product to be used at an international space station in 2020,
we launched a development project for a personal care product for use in space.

We started the research aiming to create a skincare product that is kind to the human body as well as the Earth,
which can be brought into spacecraft and solve human skincare issues both in space and on the Earth.

In 2021, we have successfully developed an innovative skincare product that can be used both in space and on the ground.

A product made in Japan with internationally recognized quality,
it has been inspired by the world’s great outdoors that are reminiscent of space,
and developed utilizing the Kyushu University’s research results that have been adopted to be used at an international space station as the green technology of the 21st century. European certification for organic cosmetics is to be awarded.

While civilian space travel is becoming a reality from 2022 onward and the environmental degradation more and more visible globally, we aim to contribute to humankind by utilizing the research results of Japan’s national research institutes, as well as by leading the world in commercially supplying “Space Cosme” made using innovative technology to help solving skincare issues of the 21st century.

Focusing initially on exporting and expanding in health and environmentally conscious overseas markets where civilian space travel plans are promoted ahead of the rest, we will launch the product in the USA and other international markets on February 24, 2022, at 10 am in Eastern Standard Time. It will be released in Japan on March 17, 2022, at 10 am in Japan Standard Time.

As with ORALPEACE, our preceding project, we will be distributing this product from Japan to people around the world, as a social business model showing how business can contribute to society.

For your loved ones. For the healthy and beautiful skin.

To keep your skin clear and hydrated. For those who are hypersensitive to chemical compounds, have sensitive skin or skin problems, want to conserve nature and save the Earth for the future, are interested in skincare products utilizing the latest space technology.

* Due to the characteristics of the product, it is possible that it will separate into water and oil due to some environmental changes such as during space flight. There is no problem in using it, so in that case, shake the bottle before use to mix.

* “Neonisin-e®,” an original patented ingredient

“Neonisin-e®” is a patented formulation of lactic acid bacterium antibacterial peptide (bacteriocin) which was invented in industry-academia collaboration of Faculty of Agriculture in Graduate School of Kyushu University, Graduate School of Medical and Dental Sciences of Kagoshima University, and National Center for Geriatrics and Gerontology.

Their study is based on the technology research for lactic acid bacteria “to fight against bacteria by using bacteria” for more than 20 years by Professor Kenji Sonomoto, a doctor of engineering and honorary professor of Kyushu University, who held prominent positions such as a professor of Division of Systems Bioengineering, Department of Bioscience and Biotechnology, Faculty of Agriculture, Graduate School, Kyushu University, vice-president of Japan Society for Lactic Acid Bacteria, and president of the Society for Biotechnology, Japan.

It is produced from clean lactic acid bacteria which was discovered in plant-oriented food (protein) “soy pulp” made in Fukuoka prefecture. It is safely and rapidly degraded into amino acid while affecting indigenous bacteria on the human body (oral/skin) such as gram-positive bacteria, gram-negative bacteria and Candida bacteria that causes a wide range of troubles and acting instantly at extremely low levels compared to general disinfectants and antibiotics.

Also, innovative product preservation technology enabled us to achieve preservative-free products with no ethanol and synthetic preservatives.

The major characteristic is it is gentle to the body and also gentle to the environment.In addition, thanks to its novel superiority that it acts only on bacteria and does not destroy human cells, it was expected to be applied to skincare and beauty fields such as an early cure of bedsores, treatment for acne, pimples, atopy, rough skin, bacterial skin troubles, body odor prevention and deodorant. (Patent No. 5750552)

Effective Ingredients in Japanese rice germ oil for the skin

Rice germ oil is made by extracting the nutrients of rice germ which only about 50g can be collected from 5 kg of brown rice. It contains more ingredients required for skin such as γ-oryzanol, ferulic acid, tocotrienol, vitamin E and linolic acid, than other oils.

γ-oryzanol and ferulic acid have been reported to have an effect of inhibiting the action of tyrosinase, an enzyme involved in the synthesis of melanin, and are also known to absorb UV rays on the skin surface and prevent sunburn. They are also expected to have a skin whitening effect.Tocotrienol and vitamin E have the effect of protecting skin cells from active oxygen by strong antioxidative power. They are expected to prevent blemishes and freckles by inhibiting excessive production of melanin pigments caused by active oxygen.

It is said that aging progresses quickly in space, and the amount of moisture in the skin decreases with age. Ceramide in the cornified layer retains water. It is said that the moisture level can be retained by applying rice germ oil containing linolic acid, the same ingredient, to the skin.

* Please use sunscreen to prevent sunburn.

Beauty ingredients in organic damask rose otto essential oil from Bulgaria

Since ancient times, damask rose essential oil has been regarded as a precious perfume oil and been loved by humankind. Organic damask rose oil cultivated in the “Rose Valley” in Kazanlak (in the east of Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria) is considered to be a particularly valuable essential oil, whose Japanese market price is as high as 10,000 yen per mL. 4 tons of petals hand-picked in the early morning of June are required to obtain 1kg of the essential oil.

Damask rose essential oil contains various beauty ingredients and aroma components such as geraniol, nerol, and phenyl that work on the mind and skin, as well as other components that work on the human body and hormones, whose mechanism of action is yet to be understood.

Geraniol has antibacterial, insect repellent, astringent, and relaxing effects, and is believed to be effective for softening the skin and restoring its elasticity. Its scent is said to repel mosquitoes in particular, making it an effective insect repellent.

Once absorbed into the body, geraniol is released from the sweat glands together with sweat, and it produces a subtle scent from within the body when taken daily, thus attracting attention from those who are concerned about body odor.

For “Neonisin-e®”, we use a handmade organic damask rose otto essential oil that is truly valuable, which is steam-distilled without using chemical solvents from the flowers that are manually and organically cultivated in the soil of Kazanrak, Bulgaria, by a family of organic farmers that have been partnering with us since 2017.

Experience the skin-beautifying effect that has long been recognized by humankind.

Plant-based glycerin that is essential for water retention in the human body

Glycerin is an essential component for living organisms including plants. It plays an important role in the living body; in the human body, it binds to other fatty acids and is stored under the skin and around internal organs.

It prevents the evaporation of water from the skin and hydrates by attracting moisture from the air into the skin.
Its tiny molecules penetrate the skin deep into the stratum corneum to soften the skin. It also has a warming effect, as it generates heat in contact with water. It has an excellent moisturizing effect on dry and rough skin as well. It is believed to replenish the skin with essential moisture, leaving the complexion hydrated, healthy and beautiful.

Liposomal function of lecithin; a component of the cell membrane

Hydrogenated lecithin derived from soybean is a natural ingredient produced by adding hydrogen to soy lecithin to make it resistant to oxidation as well as to improve the stability. Lecithin is a phospholipid and rich in fatty acids such as linoleic acid.

Most abundantly found in the human brain, it is a major component of the cell membrane. Lecithin is used in “Space Cosme”, as we recognize its liposome function that enhances the permeation of ingredients, moisturizing function similar to animal-derived ceramide, and emulsion function that helps emulsification.

Liposome is a 0.1 to 0.2μm microcapsule consisting of multi-layered phospholipids, which are biogenic substances. It is believed that the minute capsule that is smaller than skin membrane delivers the essential beauty ingredients deep into the skin.

Space Cosme development history

Q  &  A

The greatest difference between Space Cosme and many other skincare products is that Space Cosme is a line of skincare products (creams) that are chemical-free, 100% plant-based, and 100% biodegradable (degradable in the human body and the environment).

Leveraging innovative lactic acid research and space technologies originating from national research institutes in Japan and 21st century green technology, we developed skincare products that are gentle on the body and environment, as well as ready to be used when living in space.

The development and production of conventional skincare products require many chemicals, including artificial preservatives and alcohols (ethanol) as antiseptics as well as synthetic surface-active agents for emulsifying the oils and other substances to make a creamy mixture.

However, times have changed, and now humans are entering space and polluting the earth’s own environment. Drawing on 21th century green technology and the innovative lactic acid research and space technologies by Kyushu University and other national research institutes in Japan, SPACE Cosmetics is a pioneer in using soybeans, rice, plums, and other unique materials from Japan to achieve innovation

that has never before been presented by 20th century chemical technologies.

At the core of this innovation is Neonisin-e®︎, a patented formulation invented by Kyushu University and other national research institutions.

Conventionally, safe, environmentally-oriented, minimum skincare products and organic-certified products, as well as product development using 100% natural ingredients or food ingredients, could be achieved by adding several chemical substances for emulsification and preservation without the need for basic research at national research institutes or patented technology.

Even for Space Cosme, if it wasn’t for Neonisin-e®︎, the innovative products that are chemical-free, plant-based, and 100% biodegradable would not have been developed—it would have been the same development as conventional skincare products that promote safety and beauty effects, containing several artificial preservatives and other chemical substances.

From Japan, we deliver to the world chemical-free, 100% biodegradable skincare products (creams) developed from the technological innovation of bioactive peptides from lactic acid bacteria.

We hope that many people will learn about and try out this world-class innovation developed by Japanese national research institutes.

Space Cosme uses Neonisin-e®︎, a bioactive peptide from lactic acid bacteria, and all of its products are entirely made of 100% biodegradable substances that are safe and environmentally-friendly even if they remain on the skin or are released into the environment.
Space Cosme does not use artificial preservatives, alcohols, surfactants, and other chemicals.
Space Cosme does not contain any petroleum components such as vaseline, paraffin, or mineral oil that have a large impact on the natural environment.

As a worldwide trend in recent skincare products, consumers are looking for components that are safe to be left on the skin and a shelf life ensured by safe preservatives that replace artificial preservatives that do not break down easily in the environment. In order to respond to the paradigm shift toward safety, health, and environment as a customer orientation seen across the globe, we studied Neonisin-e®, a peptide from lactic acid bacteria, with Kyushu University for more than 20 years.

Space Cosme is a product line for the new age invented and developed in 21st century Japan for people who care about beauty and health, people who are concerned about what they put on their skin, people who want to avoid additives and chemical substances, people seeking to minimize daily chemical absorption through the skin, expecting and breastfeeding mothers, those with sensitive skin, and people who hope to protect the beautiful, natural environment from persistent chemicals.

Not only does Space Cosme pursue innovation in products and technologies, but it also delivers products that are carefully made for people who truly need SPACE Cosmetics products around the world, identify with the brand’s background, and hope to contribute to the society and environmental protection through a business that holds the same value.

The members who planned and developed Space Cosme include researchers from Kyushu University and other national research institutes, as well as many other professionals such as an organic cosmetics pioneer who became the first Japanese to plan a cosmetics brand certified as organic under EU regulations in 2005.
Space Cosme shares the same concept as natural organic skincare products made especially for health- and/or environment-conscious overseas consumers in certain aspects: using sustainable plant ingredients while using no petroleum materials, using organically-grown or wild-crafted plant materials whenever possible while avoiding agricultural chemicals, and doing without chemically-composed substances and additives to make products.

Space Cosme products are also planned by members who have been engaged in the planning and development of various organic products based on European organic standards for over 20 years and are produced at certified factories in Japan in conformity with international organic product standards.

However, as mentioned before, when it comes to emulsified cream and not products made of only oils or water-based liquids such as plant oil and aromatic distilled water or products with alcohol (ethanol) additives, the technical barrier for product preservation and emulsification made it difficult for even natural, organic skincare products that promote safety and low environmental burden to achieve a chemical-free formulation.

Even certified organic products could not overcome this technical innovation hurdle in past decades. They could not go much beyond industrial products containing lots of persistent chemicals, still bound by the need to add artificial preservatives such as sodium benzoate, plant-based but chemically-composed synthetic surfactants, and synthetic fragrances to supplement preservation performance.

By integrating the research results of Neonisin-e®︎, a brainchild of lactic acid bacteria peptide research by a Japanese national university, Space Cosme’ progressive technological innovation achieved what was conventionally impossible with other technologies in the world.

To respond to the health and environmental needs of the new age, we have adopted two approaches: the “addition-approach product making,” which uses a range of various potentially-effective plant essences, and the “subtraction-approach product making,” which eliminated chemical substances whenever possible for better health and environment. In addition, aiming to introduce “multiplication” to a completely new level, we infused the R&D of Japanese space technologies based on the lactic acid bacteria biotechnology and green technology to take on the challenge of creating 21st century products to make a difference.

Specifically, the major difference is that Space Cosme is a skincare product line for the global market that originated in Japan, a research- and technology-oriented nation. Not to mention taking an approach to eliminate petroleum-derived substances and alcohols, our products contain Neonisin-e, a plant-derived lactic acid bacteria peptide formulation that is friendly to living organisms and the global environment, which was invented by building on over 20 years of joint research at national research institutes with the aim of achieving both safety and efficacy.

Another significant difference is that Space Cosme’ research and technologies are not just for profit, but are being used for social contribution activities.

If you are interested in natural, organic, plant-based, or vegan cosmetics, we hope that you will try Space Cosme.

All ingredients of a cosmetic product are listed in the order of the amount used in the product. In the case of many products, more than 90% of the product is made from ingredients up to the fifth one in the list, or up to the 10th one at most. The numerous substances listed thereafter are generally understood to be included in trace content for promotional purposes.

In other words, even if a product has a long list of ingredients on its label, the first five or ten ingredients in the list gives a brief picture of what the product is all about.

The latter ingredients in the list on the label are generally synthetic surfactants, preservatives, and fragrances. If a large number of ingredients are listed after the fifth ingredients, they are likely to be there for the expectation of the promotional effect from using many ingredients.

Commonly, water is the first ingredient listed on labels of skincare creams. These products are, in fact, made up of 50 to 70% water. You can see that by evaporating the moisture of the product and looking at the amount of other ingredients remaining.

In contrast, the first ingredient listed on the label of a Space Cosme product is plant-based oil instead of water. Space Cosme adopts a rich concentration of oils, which make up 70% of the products.

This ingredient ratio is a major difference—that is to say, if you dilute a Space Cosme cream with water, its water content will be the same as that of a typical skincare cream.

As described above, with Space Cosme, users can experience the same effect as you would get from typical skincare creams by using a very small amount of a Space Cosme product. Alternatively, you can also use a Space Cosme product several times more when diluted, which makes for a more reasonably priced skincare product.

If you want to use Space Cosme frugally on earth, you can dilute it with water to use it like most other skincare creams.

Most of the costs of cosmetics are said to be the cost of distribution (wholesaler and retailer profit margins; wholesalers sell to retailers at prices that are 40 to 60% below retail price, and manufacturers sell to wholesalers at prices 30 to 50% below that), the cost of containers and boxes, and advertising cost of advertising (average 10%).

As a rough estimate, if a product is 11,000 yen including tax, the consumption tax is 1,000 yen, wholesaler and retailer profit margin is 4,000 to 6,000 yen, the cost of containers and boxes is 1,000 to 2,000 yen, the advertising cost is 1,000 yen, and the rest is the cost of the actual product and R&D cost, which in the case of an imported product, may also include the import cost, distribution cost, shop cost, advertising cost, employees’ salary, selling and administration cost, and profit.

Space Cosme was developed with the aim of creating skincare products for the new age with minimized costs and expenses, and top priority given to the users’ interests with a focus on the quality and R&D.

First, you should check all the ingredients. When purchasing products that you apply on your skin for your precious body and mind, we recommend that you check and look up all ingredients (including additives) used in each product.

All ingredients are listed on the product package. In most cases, consumers tend to have their eyes drawn to aspects other than the product’s substance. However, in the world of science, research, and manufacturing, the research, technological innovation, and new safety initiatives and efforts behind products all result in what is included in the full ingredient list. It is important to check the full ingredient list to determine the essence of the product.

Secondly, you need to check the research background and results. What project members, universities, graduate schools, and research institutes (national institutions, private organizations, or internationally competitive public institutions), what kind of career and profile the researchers (researchers who can be internationally competitive at their institutions and fields of expertise) who researched and developed the technologies and products have, what kind of research they are doing, and whether innovation and objective superiority (patents, academic papers, awards, newspaper publications, etc.) exist in their research and technologies.

The background research, data, academic papers, patents, awards, and media publications for each product are easily available on the Internet nowadays. It is important to determine what kind of research institutions, researchers, and participating members are working on the background research and what kind of results are obtained.

Thirdly, you should check what kind of public media or other publicity, such as newspapers or television broadcasts, and magazines, is covering the research results and products.
Do the research results and products have news value, being covered as an article, instead of as an advertisement, by a reliable news organization or public media? Does such public coverage have objectivity and reliability, rather than being self-produced? Reports provided through the filter of thorough reporters who receive and examine press releases from numerous research institutes and companies on a daily basis can be key elements for determining whether the new research findings and products are useful or have unconventional value for many consumers who do not have specialized knowledge.

Fourth point is which medical institutions and shops are selected as outlets and in which countries the products are sold and used.
In reliable medical institutions, department stores, and other shops, there are medical professionals and buyers (purchasing personnel) who select various products in the market at their own responsibility and provide patients and customers with products that their hospitals and stores can confidently promote.
Now that there are so many things and so much information all over the world, there are stores with prestige in which consumers can’t go wrong no matter what they buy there.

Selected products at such medical institutions and department stores are chosen and trusted through the filter of discerning buyers who have seen products from all over the world, and are thus recommended to valuable patients and customers.
When selling officially outside of Japan, the products must fulfill the strict approval requirements of the local health organizations.
Products that are officially sold locally are those that have been examined in their respective countries and judged to be suitable for use as products that contribute to the health of the people. What kind of medical institutions, administrative agencies, and public institutions, and what prestige level of department stores and shops select and carry the recommended products?

Are the products also sold outside of Japan, such as in the United States, Europe, China and other Asian countries, and/or Central and South America?
And are the products needed or wanted by many people around the world?

A clear understanding of the product’s availability and sales performance can also help many consumers without specialized knowledge to gain an insight into how the product differentiates itself from other products in the market, the nature of the product, the superiority of research and technologies, and the merits of the product.

Finally, look into the product’s social impact.
It is important to explore whether the product or business will lead to the good not only for you but also for society and other people, whether it gives priority to human health and eco-friendliness, and whether it is just for profit or is engaged in social efforts.

It is now easy to check the current situation and management polices of companies on Wikipedia and other Web sources.

It is important to not only look at the product specifications, but for medical professionals and consumers to watch closely and look into the social impact of the product and/or company. With so much information and so many companies and products around, we are now in an age where we need to be able to discern and judge the true nature of the products in order to protect our own health and lifestyle.
In the post-COVID-19 era, consumers need to understand how a company’s products will lead to better things for society and themselves, as well as how social and economic systems work to make wise choices.

A patented lactic acid bacterium peptide formulation invented in collaboration with Kyushu University Graduate School of Agriculture, Kagoshima University Graduate School, National Longevity Medical Research Center, etc. For details, please see the homepage of “Neonisin ®”.
It is a coined word that combines face and piece.It is said that many bacteria are resident on the skin, and it keeps the balance and keeps it healthy.If this peaceful balance is disturbed, you will be unhealthy and ill.Therefore, we named it “face piece” in the sense of “keeping your skin in a peaceful state with safe ingredients”.It also expresses peace of mind, family health and peace, and a beautiful planet.
The use of chemically synthesized ingredients such as alcohol (ethanol) and propylene glycol (PG) contained in general products is prohibited.
The concept was created in the wilderness of the world where you can feel the universe, and using the advanced research technology of the Japanese national research institute adopted by the International Space Station, it is made in Japan and it will be provided to everyone on the earth and in planetary orbit beyond the sea and sky.
Modern science has revealed that petroleum-derived components are persistent and have a negative impact on the natural environment, emit a large amount of carbon dioxide in production, and otherwise adversely affect humans and the global environment.

Today, there is a need around the world for a rapid transition from fossil fuel industries and technologies that have been around for a century to new industries and green technologies that enable humans to continue to live on the earth for another century to come in a decarbonized society.

In the automobile industry, there is an industrial transition toward electric vehicles ahead of the coming decarbonized society. Skincare products also follow the same trend: it is easy to think that the rapid conversion to new industries and green technologies toward a decarbonized society will be required worldwide and in outer space.

With an eye toward the future of humankind and the earth 100 years from now, SPACE Cosmetics took on R&D and technological innovation challenges with the aim of creating skincare products for the new age that do not contain petroleum-derived ingredients, based on the belief that conventional skincare products using petroleum components do not meet our collective SDGs.

Space Cosme products do not contain petroleum-derived ingredients for the following reasons.
Petroleum-derived ingredients are not nutritious for humans and are not expected to have cosmetic effect. They are also not biodegradable (not decomposed by microorganisms) in the natural environment and emit a large amount of Co2 when used in production, imposing a negative impact on the sustainability of the global natural environment.

Petroleum-based silicones such as dimethicone, cyclomethicone, and cyclopentasiloxane, vinyl polymers such as carbomer, copolymer, and crosspolymer, as well as vaseline, paraffin, and mineral oil, are excellent ingredients in terms of providing smooth spreading and hydration at low cost. However, they have some problems: plasticky, inorganic non-nutritive petroleum film clogs the pores and prevents the delivery of plant oil and other fatty acids as well as nutrients like minerals to the skin, petroleum-derived components adhered to skin require petroleum-based washing agents for removal (synthetic surfactants) that may cause skin irritation, petroleum-based ingredients are non-food-safe and are not biodegradable in the natural environment (not broken down by microorganisms; silicon is said to take 400 to 500 years to decompose), and products using such petroleum-derived ingredients cause a large amount of carbon dioxide emissions during production, which is detrimental to a sustainable global natural environment. For all of the aforementioned reasons, our research team does not recommend their use in consideration of keeping healthy skin and a sustainable global environment.

The world has undergone a drastic course change in the prevailing trends over the past few years.
The change was first observed in developed countries, as exemplified by the state of California in the United States announcing that it would ban the sale of gasoline vehicles in the future to prevent global warming caused by CO2 emissions.

Now, the world’s largest and oldest automakers, all of whom have been researching and developing gasoline-powered cars, are racing to launch EVs to the market. They also announced a freeze on the development of gasoline engines.

Now that a crisis for human beings due to global warming has become apparent, a generational switchover of research technologies and the industrial mainstream is rapidly underway. In the case of automobiles, electric car startups overtook the market capitalization of the world’s largest company in a very short period of time. This is also referred to as the Green Revolution.

In developed countries, this trend is also accelerating in the cosmetics industry. Targeting the global market, Space Cosme is a 21st century revolutionary cosmetics originating from Japan.

With environmental protection being called for in different corners of the world, it is possible that in the future there will be some regulations on the use of petroleum ingredients that are harmful to the environment, not only in terms of the cosmetic products themselves, but also with respect to their plastic containers.

It is easy to imagine that environmentally-friendly biotechnology and environmentally-compatible products will replace conventional, 20th-century chemical technologies as mainstream technologies and products in the coming age through the R&D of innovative alternative materials.

In carefully selecting ingredients for the bare skin, our research team also believes that food-safe ingredients work better for external application on the human body.

Space Cosme products are truly made in Japan at research institutes and production plants where cleanliness and sanitation are strictly controlled throughout the entire series of processes from basic research and formulation production carried out by research institutes and researchers in Japan, including the Kyushu University School of Agriculture, Kagoshima University Graduate School, and National Center for Geriatrics and Gerontology, to strict control of raw ingredients, bulk production, and filling and packaging.

In addition to its international competitiveness as detailed earlier, Space Cosme aims to enrich many people living and working in Japan, their families, communities, and society by creating jobs in Japan and increasing the incomes of local people through research with Japanese universities and production at domestic factories.

In the area of research and production, we are working together with people from many regions in Japan to create a business in which local people share the joy and profits of working while consuming products made by local consumers. Many people and their families are involved in the Space Cosme business all over Japan.

Currently, industries in Japan are being hollowed out, and jobs, employment, and income are being lost in different regions. In some areas, even the maintenance of social and public services has become strained.

On another note, a large amount of carbon dioxide is required to transport products from overseas, which raises a concern for the further spread of the destruction of the global natural environment.

Shopping can also change society. Use ethical products for daily use.
We hope that, as your regular skincare products, you can help out by purchasing and consuming sustainable and socially-ethical domestic products that are competitive in terms of product performance and price, contribute to the regional community and economy and have a positive impact on yourself, and lead to mutual support for the local community as well as the global environment as a whole.

SPACE Cosme is a product line that has been researched and developed so that it can be used as an all-in-one cream for the skin, body, and face.

A single bottle of a SPACE Cosme product can be used not only for the face, but also for the whole body, including lips, around the eyes, hands and nails, body, and even for hair styling.

Skincare cream is sold with different specifications, such as for body or for face, for around the eyes or for the whole body, or for women or for men, for marketing purposes or to maximize profits from the maker’s standpoint. However, like a can of “morning coffee,” they are mostly the same in terms of substance and merely sold with different scents or packages for specific targets. That way, companies can earn more profits.

However, the excessive commercialism of the 20th century led to superfluous mass production, causing the current global environmental destruction. The 21st century is said to be an age when consumers around the world will understand the essence of things and shift to making smarter selections and purchases for the future of humankind.

If you don’t want to add a lot to your dresser, or if you want to use a single skincare product on your whole body, share a skincare product with your entire family from babies to the elderly, use it for pets, cut down on skin care products, or want to protect the natural environment of the earth, we believe you could use a single bottle of SPACE Cosme as an option.

Made with chemical-free ingredients, it can be used on the whole body of babies.I hope you can try it with your precious baby.
SPACE Cosme aims to create products that can be used by people who prefer to do without chemically-synthesized components.

If you are concerned, a recommended simple method is to do a patch test on yourself with a SPACE Cosme product or other products. Soak some of the product into a bandage, attach it to your skin and wait. If you develop redness or any other kind of allergic reaction, that product is probably not for you and you should stay away from it. This is just one easy way that you can test yourself.

However, allergies and physical constitution vary from person to person, as do personalities, and there are as many cases as there are people in the world.
In addition, the reaction of the body changes from time to time depending on your physical condition and time of year.

We recommend that you make your own health care decisions and consult with your doctor to determine whether the skincare products you apply to your skin will suit your constitution, skin, and preference at the time.

Yes, it can be used for facial spots cream and SOS cream, also back and chest areas that are worrisome in the summer, and décolletage.It contains our patented lactic acid bacterium peptide formulation “Neonaisin-e®︎”, which was invented through industry-academia collaboration with Kyushu University. We hope you will feel safe to give it a try.
SPACE Cosme is gender-free and age-free.It was developed with the aim of being a product that can be used by all humankind.SPACE Cosme is fragrance-free and it’s for everyone. (Aroma components such as geraniol contained in Damask rose essential oil are faintly scented only at the beginning) It is a suitable skin care product for couples to share. a gift for your friend of any gender and age.
It’s quite luxurious, but you can use it with confidence.As a development member of space cosmetics, including veterinarians, we have formulated ingredients that can be used by pets such as dogs and cats who may go to space with us together! However, as with humans, pets have allergies and constitutions as many as the number of pets, and if you are concerned about the details of the ingredients, or if you have your own thoughts, decide to use it at your own discretion.
Generally, alcohol (ethanol) is prohibited to be brought to spacecraft for safety reason, therefor SPACE Cosme does not include alcohol(ethanol). Alcohol has a preservation purpose but it can sometimes cause skin irritation and dryness. SPACE Cosme is suitable for those with sensitive skin, rough skin, infants and those who do not want to consume alcohol.
Methylparaben, butylparaben, propylparaben, also known as paraoxybenzoic acid ester, are not included in SPACE Cosme.
Phenoxyethanol is a hydroxyethylated (synthetic) phenol (colorless needle-like crystal made from coal tar, used for antiseptic and disinfectant), which is often used as a substitute for consumers who do not like parabens. ) Is a synthetic preservative / preservative that is chemically synthesized in the presence of alkali metal hydroxide or alkali metal borohydride.

In Japan and the European Union, the amount of phenoxyethanol is strictly limited for skin cosmetics, and up to 1% can be added to products, but its use in foods is prohibited. (Paraben is permitted to be used in food as a food additive.)

Even for skin cosmetics, the inclusion of phenoxyethanol is prohibited by international organic product certification standards. Therefore, we have decided to prescribe phenoxyethanol-free for SPACE Cosme.

BG (butylene glycol) is a chemical component used as a moisturizer, antiseptic, and solvent, but it is prohibited component in spacecraft and is not included in SPACE Cosme.
No, SPACE Cosme does not include PEG (polyethylene glycol).
Since we are aiming for a product that can be used with confidence even if infants lick the skin, honey propolis is not included.
Chemical substances as impurities contained in products imported from overseas are constantly reported. Such substances and substances unlisted or undeclared on ingredients labels, including carry-over ingredients, are prevented from entering products at Japanese manufacturing sites under the Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Act in Japan. The strict production and quality control systems in Japan, as well as good practice by Japanese producers, prevent carry-overs.

In order to perpetuate our business and brand through good-faith manufacturing, we always strive to produce products with a strict inspection system and an unfeigned corporate attitude in cooperation with raw material manufacturers and production plants.

While it is possible to use formaldehyde on the PPM-order in some foreign countries, the use of formaldehyde is strictly prohibited in Japan, and we continue to make every effort not to allow the entry of formaldehyde at our production sites in Japan. Pharmaceutical affairs laws in some foreign countries only require ingredients that are used in formulation by the manufacturer to be listed. Preservatives already contained in raw materials such as plant extracts (perishable) that are used in products are not required to be listed on the ingredients label (self-declaration system).

For this reason, preservatives such as formaldehyde contained in raw materials can be present in final product as well. Even in such cases, it is not mentioned in the list of ingredients.

Ingredients that are not labeled or declared in these foreign products are called carry-over ingredients when they become products. Gas chromatography, which scientifically examines the substances in products, can reveal that a certain amount is contained in the products.

In the case of official imported products, inspection by gas chromatography is mandatory when beginning import into Japan. However, gas chromatography is not easy to use for every production or import lot due to cost issues (costs around JPY 100,000 per item every time), so in reality, such inspections are not performed for every product import or sales after the initial sample import.

As such, for some products imported and sold from overseas that tout their safety highly, chemical ingredients that are used at overseas production sites are intentionally not declared in order to achieve both a pleasing use and safety appeal. Later, a disparity between the performance of the product and the ingredient labeling, as well as distrust arising from it, can lead to a third-party analysis revealing deceitful labeling or ingredient falsification. This causes great disadvantages and disappointments to those who suffer from allergies or who seek safety.

Having experience in general manufacturing, as well as developing and producing organic cosmetics all over the world, we firmly believe that manufacturing and production management in Japan have global competitiveness.

We are striving to create internationally competitive businesses that will create a future for Japan by promoting the quality, credibility, cost-competitiveness, and safety of made-in-Japan products in the global economic competition. Likewise other Japanese manufacturing industries, notably the automobile industry, in which Japanese companies excel, we work towards improving Japan’s presence in the world market for skincare products and cosmetics with international competitiveness. This will lead to creating products that are recognized worldwide and creating jobs, earning foreign currency, and protecting the lives of children and other future generations for earning jobs, jobs, and income.

No, they don’t.

SPACE Cosme products contain Neonisin-e®︎, a peptide produced by lactic acid bacteria.
For more information on the clinical benefits of incorporating lactic acid bacteria in skincare products and the details of previous issues and challenges of research institutes worldwide, please visit the Neonisin website.

There was a major challenge in using lactic acid bacteria in skincare products and cosmetics. That is: “You can’t make products containing both lactic acid bacteria and preservatives.” This is because preservatives such as paraben, phenoxyethanol, alcohol (ethanol), BG (butylene glycol), sodium benzoate, sorbic acid K, grapefruit seed oil, and acids are fungicides used to sterilize products to protect against all bacteria, including lactic acid bacteria, to preserve the products.

Glycerin and other plant extracts, essential oils, and fragrances that are used in cosmetics also kills off the lactic acid bacteria.
In the case of skincare products and cosmetics that can be stored and used at room temperature instead of being refrigerated like yogurt, it is necessary to sterilize them in order to distribute them as products because lactic acid bacteria rot the products at room temperature if they are kept alive.

To prevent this, preservatives such as paraben, phenoxyethanol, alcohol (ethanol), BG (butylene glycol), sodium benzoate, sorbic acid K, grapefruit seed oil, and acids are commonly added to products so they can be distributed and stored at room temperature. Once they are added, lactic acid bacteria perish.

Although there are research reports that dead lactic acid bacteria can be used as food for intestinal flora, there are no academic reports on research results that show that applying dead bacteria on the skin has any effect.

If lactic acid bacteria culture ingredients can be good for your skin even after the lactic acid bacteria have died out, effects may be expected from glycerin produced by the lactic acid bacteria as moisturizer.

However, you can benefit from a higher moisturizing effect by applying high purity glycerin to your skin rather than using a culture ingredient containing many impurities along with a small amount of glycerin produced by lactic acid bacteria.

While it is possible to make a skincare or cosmetic product that contains live lactic acid bacteria like yogurt and lactic acid bacteria beverages for distribution and sales in refrigerated state, to be stored daily in a refrigerator for use at home with a shelf life of about one week and deliver lactic acid bacteria to the skin alive,

the clinical effects of applying live lactic acid bacteria to the skin vary depending on conditions, and the amounts of peptides and glycerin produced are unstable, not to mention that it takes too long to produce. The expectation for clinical effects as a cosmetic ingredient is not realistic.

If you apply yogurt containing live lactic acid bacteria such as bifidobacteria to your own skin at home or a product made by heating the yogurt to kill lactic acid bacteria, you can find out whether it has an effect on your skin.

Yogurt has been popular as food in many parts of the world since ancient times, but there is a reason why it has not often been used for beauty purposes even in ancient times. Therefore, products that contain both lactic acid bacteria and preservatives that can be stored at room temperature, products that contain both lactic acid bacteria and fungicides, and products that contain lactic acid bacteria culture ingredients may be products that seem promising, but in reality, the lactic acid bacteria are killed off by the preservatives (which also makes the products capable of room-temperature distribution and storage), which was a major hinderance in clinical efficacy and commercialization.

For these reasons, SPACE Cosme does not contain lactic acid bacteria, alive or dead.
If you prefer skincare using live lactic acid bacteria, applying them on your skin by using store-bought yogurt or yogurt made by a yogurt maker.

While the SPACE Cosme line does not contain any lactic acid bacteria, Neonisin-e®︎ is produced by lactic acid bacteria.
The lactic acid bacteria used in the production are described below. While lactic acid bacteria have the image of being edible, they come from various habitats and origins.

Lactic acid bacteria are mostly understood as beneficial, but are completely different depending on the type and strain. There are lactic acid bacteria that live in the ground, rivers, insects, animals and humans. Some lactic acid bacteria live in the intestines (feces) and excrement of animals, as well as in droppings and sludge. Certain types of lactic acid bacteria have been discovered in human feces and dental plaque.

Also, the actual viability and propagating power of bacteria are stronger in adults than in children, and thus in reality, bacteria found in adult feces and dental plaque are often used. However, there has been a major challenge in the practical application of research on lactic acid bacteria by research institutes around the world: from consumers’ perspective, products made by fermenting lactobacillus from human feces and dental plaque may be undesirable if they are to be applied to the skin.

Peptides that are likely to be mixed in the “fermented products” of bacteria derived from feces may have the potential to resist sundry germs based on their habitat. However, peptides other than Nisin A are unapproved substances whose safety has not yet been verified by the World Health Organization (WHO), the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare of Japan, or other health organizations around the world.

Lactococcus lactis, a lactic acid bacterium used in the production of Neonisin-e®︎, is found in tofu refuse from Fukuoka Prefecture, which is a clean and safe food. This lactic acid bacterium lives in plant-derived foods and mass produces Nisin A, an antimicrobial peptide approved worldwide. This is the result of the research over several decades by Kenji Sonomoto, professor emeritus at Kyushu University and former president of the Japan Society for Lactic Acid Bacteria.
The lactic acid bacteria used in the production of SPACE Cosme products are the clean and safe lactic acid bacteria found in edible plant-derived food called tofu refuse.

No, they don’t.

This is a major global advantage of SPACE Cosme due to the long and deep research over 30 years by the world’s leading researcher of bacteriocins from lactic acid bacteria that can be used for food at the Faculty of Agriculture of Kyushu University.

In the field of lactic acid bacteria research and the food industry, the “origin” of bacteria that people consume through the mouth is important: whether they are derived from plants or animals, or where they live. It does not mean that any kind of bacteria is acceptable, and the value of research depends on where the bacteria come from.

SPACE Cosme does not use animal-derived bacteria that are found in the excrement in the intestinal tract of animals such as livestock and people, but instead uses plant-derived lactic acid bacteria that live in food, specifically tofu soybean curd, for use in the production of Neonisin-e®︎.

If you are concerned about the details of the type and origin of lactic acid bacteria that you may apply to your skin, we recommend that you investigate each individual bacterium by name on the Internet or in other sources.

Neonisin-e®︎ is described in ingredients labels as “lactobacillus culture extract,” “plum fruit extract”, and “Damask rose oil.” This is because Neonisin-e®︎ is a combination of these ingredients.

Lactobacillus culture extract is a liquid made by fermenting lactic acid bacteria and is often like a supernatant of yogurt. The fermented liquid is cloudy, containing many things such as water, salt, and other impurities.

Lactobacillus culture extract used in Neonisin-e®︎ is completely different from other fermentation liquors. It is an extract produced by isolating and highly purifying Nisin A, a peptide produced by lactic acid bacteria from the fermentation liquor using proprietary biotechnology.

Our company is the only one in the world to have this refining technique, which is why the highly-refined Nisin A is a one-and-only product. The highly-refined Nisin A can only be extracted in an amount that is one-tenth of the amount of lactobacillus fermentation liquor containing Nisin A. This highly pure lactic acid bacteria peptide solution requires more than 10 times the production cost and labor.

This refining process turns the highly-refined Nisin A into a completely different formulation that is colorless, transparent, tasteless, and odorless.
Research reports have been published by research institutes worldwide that show that the purity, degree of refining, stability, and efficacy of highly-refined Nisin A are more than 100 times those of ordinary lactobacillus fermentation solutions.

Simple Nisin A is a non-patentable ingredient and can be incorporated into any company’s products. However, as mentioned above, it contains many other substances, such as moisture, salt, and other impurities, which means that when it is incorporated into products, it is inactivated due to its low stability, making the products meaningless.

Products containing Nisin A also are high in salt content, which would make such products salty. If the product is not salty, then the product probably does not contain much Nisin A.

However, even highly-refined Nisin A has a limited spectrum of action: only on gram-positive bacteria. Unless it is used in the form of Neonisin-e®︎, a patented formulation that is a combination of Nisin A, plum fruit extract, and Damask rose oil, it does not act with gram-negative bacteria or candida, which means no promising data can be gained from products containing it.

In other words, products that claim to contain Nisin A (a cloudy lactobacillus culture extract containing low-purity salt) can be said to be overly-promoted, misleading products that seem effective, imitating our products that contain our proprietary highly-refined Nisin A or the patented Neonisin-e®︎.

Neonisin-e®︎ was developed through industry-academia collaboration with national research institutes based on 30 years of serious research by Professor Emeritus Kenji Sonomoto of Kyushu University. This patented substance is described on ingredients labels the same way as other lactobacillus culture extracts and uses the cloudy Nisin A, containing general salt and impurities, as its ingredient, but the research and innovation behind SPACE Cosme originating at Kyushu University are at a totally different level compared to overly-promoted products pursuing a similar image.

There is the following reality regarding modern science:
1. All resident bacteria in the human body cannot be classified as good or bad.
2. There is no technology that can classify organisms as good or bad, and control or reduce certain bacteria while growing or proliferating others.

It is said that many bacteria, including those that have not yet been named, live on our skin. In modern science, while the identification of the skin resident bacteria that cause trouble is progressing, not all skin resident bacteria, including those that have not been named yet, can be distinguished as being good or bad for the skin.

This is because, in the case of skin, there is no scientific evidence to deny the possibility that even what are considered good resident bacteria may act adversely to the skin depending on conditions (also called opportunistic bacteria), or that the bad resident bacteria may act to the benefit of the skin, such as by protecting the skin against the invasion of bacteria from outside. There is no evidence, and the details of resident bacteria have not been fully studied or clarified.

Bacteria are classified into gram-positive bacteria, gram-negative bacteria, fungi, etc., and not classified as good or bad. There is no latest technology to classify organisms as good or bad.

Just like on humans, animals, insects, and other living things, using poisons, insecticides, and fungicides can act on all organisms, including bacteria, at the same time.

The same goes for the opposite. With the recent boom in lactic acid bacteria, interest in fungi and bacteria in the beauty industry has increased. However, even if we want to grow and proliferate beneficial bacteria that are good for the skin or have good effects on the human body by focusing on “good bacteria,” all bacteria, including those that are unfriendly, increase at the same time.

Furthermore, humans and animals have acquired the physiological function of secreting sebum necessary for protecting their own skin and maintaining health in the course of evolution. The sebum secreted by the sweat glands contains ingredients that keep the pH level of each person’s skin optimal and help maintain a good balance of skin resident bacteria.

They are called fatty acids and are components contained in human sebum, animal oils, and plant oils such as olive oil. For this reason, there are cosmetic products all over the world that contain plant and animal oils that contain these fatty acids in the hope of replenishing sebum and keeping skin in good condition.

While fatty acids, which are components of sebum, suppress unfriendly bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus and favor beneficial bacteria such as Staphylococcus epidermidis, it is part of the basic physiological function (the same as saliva, which maintains the balance of resident bacteria by keeping the inside of the mouth slightly acidic) that is necessary for animals to maintain the skin slightly acidic and keep a good balance of resident bacteria. Therefore, it is quite natural that beneficial bacteria are favored and unfriendly bacteria are controlled. (Otherwise, your skin would become overwhelmed by unfriendly bacteria, which can lead to skin problems.)

Additionally, there is little scientific evidence as to why applying cosmetic products containing fatty acids and plant and animal oils, which are nutrients for all bacteria, improves the beneficial bacterial count while keeping down the unfriendly bacterial count, or whether it is always that way. It has also been considered impossible to obtain actual clinical effects.

In addition, the sebum components and the optimum fatty acid composition differ from person to person, and so does the composition of resident bacteria in and on the skin. It is not scientifically realistic in terms of flora studies to expect that replenishing fatty acids to the skin (this is to say if saliva components were added to your mouth) decreases the unfriendly bacterial count or increases the beneficial bacterial count.
(However, our research team also believes that fatty acids are very beneficial for the skin, so we conducted research and development of SPACE Cosme as a skincare product line that supplements the functions of sebum and contains plant ingredients rich in fatty acids.)

The world’s most advanced lactic acid bacteria research currently shows the following about peptides from lactic acid bacteria that can selectively control certain bacteria.

Lactic acid bacteria produce peptides that suppress (harmless to themselves) bacteria that are enemies to them for their proliferation. The peptides produced by lactic acid bacteria vary depending on the type, ranging from those with a narrow spectrum (range) to those with a broad spectrum.

For example, Nisin A has the widest spectrum and controls most gram-positive bacteria. However, Nisin A does not act on gram-negative bacteria or fungi. (The invention of Neonisin-e®︎ by a national research institute achieved the world’s first preparation that acts on gram-positive bacteria, gram-negative bacteria, candida, etc.)

On the other hand, peptides with a narrow antimicrobial spectrum only inhibit certain gram-positive bacteria (gram-positive bacteria closely related to the producing bacteria).

It’s not impossible to say that a bacterium or bacteriocin selectively inhibits a particular unfriendly bacterium, but unfortunately, it also acts on related gram-positive bacteria.

No single substance has yet been discovered in the world that acts on Staphylococcus aureus alone. It is impossible to get rid of “bad bacteria” from among all bacteria.

Likewise, it is also impossible to just nourish or proliferate the beneficial bacteria. While we understand people’s desire to seek beauty and hydrating effects by focusing on the presence and action of beneficial on the skin and cultivating and increasing them, unfortunately, efforts to do so will also increase unfriendly bacteria.

For example, providing nutrients such as oligosaccharides and dietary fiber to lactic acid bacteria also nourishes and consequently proliferate unfriendly bacteria.

In fact, it is difficult for new beneficial bacteria from outside to colonize the human body. Also, because beneficial bacteria cannot be selectively nourished out of all resident bacteria on each person, the bacteria flora composed of both beneficial and unfriendly bacteria does not change after all. Providing nutrients can also proliferate relatively strong unfriendly bacteria, which can lead to their further proliferation.

In other words, the latest technology has not achieved the selective control or action on either type of bacteria.

Living things on Earth, including us humans, support, complement, and act on each other and co-exist in balance. None of them exist in a meaningless way, and in a situation where science has not made progress in elucidating their functions and interactions, we cannot label them as good and bad, excellent and inferior.

In addition, even among the same human race, the bacterial composition on the skin has been reported to differ according to ethnic group, family, and individual according to heredity and living environment. It is impossible to distinguish between beneficial and unfriendly bacteria over several hundred kinds of skin resident bacteria for each person.

The bacteria and flora that we have on our skin and in our intestines are not present from our birth. They are inherited from parents who live in the same environment, who share the same genes, through cheek-rubbing and saliva contact when we are infants. The bacteria composition that is genetically and environmentally optimal for each individual protects the body.

Like human beings, other living things are good and bad for certain people and society, but they are born and exist because they are necessary, and they live and co-exist with their own individuality. We can’t see them, but this also applies to bacteria.

Skin problems are caused by the “overgrowth” of Staphylococcus aureus and acne-causing bacteria, which live on the skin as resident bacteria and are typically bacteria that usually do not cause problems.

Our research team studies how to safely approach bacteria that exist as resident bacteria on the skin but overgrow and cause skin problems and how to keep the skin healthy and supple.

First, SPACE Cosme adheres to the principle of using only safe ingredients, because components to be rubbed into the skin are absorbed through the skin on a daily basis.

Secondly, an action always has a counteraction. Strong action causes great damage to the human body, requiring more protection to repair it and leading to a vicious circle.

For example, if you wash your skin or scalp with a petroleum-based synthetic surfactant that has a strong cleansing effect, it will remove too much sebum and break down the skin barrier, causing rough skin. When that happens, you will try to cure that skin irritation by buying a product for it.

In this case, rather than continuing to use a strong cleansing agent that removes too much sebum and hurts the skin while using another product that heals the skin at the same time, it is a more reasonable choice to use a product that does not remove too much sebum and damage the skin, or wash your face with warm water and use mild moisturizing products from the perspective of consumers, not from profit-seeking companies.

Rather than buying and spending money on two products, you can choose to reduce your purchasing and spending by carefully maintaining your skin in the first place.

For example, it has been reported that washing your face and scalp with warm water reduces excessive sebum secretion as well as the amount of oil necessary to protect the skin, resulting in the natural strength and beauty of the skin.

It is now becoming necessary to refrain from using ingredients that are too strong and return the body to its original healthy state.
If you have skin problems, it is wise not to make amateurish judgments, but to see a doctor at an appropriate medical institution to discover various risks.
Thirdly, we believe that strong acting chemicals are unnecessary for babies, people with healthy skin, and people who can restore their health with their natural strength.

Human beings had been evolving for over 100,000 years before the development of the modern chemical industry of pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, and way before the past century of economic activities to make money by manufacturing and selling industrial products such as skincare products and cosmetics. We acquired physiological functions that enable us to survive and live healthily for generations without such products. Rather, it is sometimes better for healthy people, pregnant women, mothers who are breastfeeding, pregnant women, and infants not to use chemicals that have strong effects on the skin, or to take in strong ingredients in every personal care.

Fourthly, the global market for skincare products and cosmetics continues to grow. In other words, people around the world are using more skin products and cosmetics than they used to, and these products are in some form being discharged into the natural environment.
The characteristic of chemically-synthesized substances is that they can be mass-produced and mass-sold at low cost. It has made a great contribution to humanity in the 20th century and has brought about abundance to human life.

However, now that we are in the 21st century, it is easy to imagine that if we continue to discharge persistent synthetic fungicides and chemical substances into the natural environment every day around the world, we will damage the microbial ecosystems in nature and the Earth will surely become dirty.

Don’t you think the rivers and the sea in the past were more beautiful with creatures and coral?
Both the problem of plastic waste and the annual increase in natural disasters around the world due to global warming caused by air pollution have become a reality after decades of such future being vocally warned of.
In order to leave this life of mankind and the beautiful Earth to future generations, including our children and grandchildren, there are actions that you can take within your capabilities.
It may be a small thing for each and every one of us, but we can change humanity, the Earth, and ourselves for the better with the spread and accumulation of small actions of every thoughtful person in the world.

SPACE Cosme is a chemical-free, plant-based, and 100% biodegradable skincare line that contains Neonisin-e®︎, a peptide produced by lactic acid bacteria.

Consumers around the globe are now shifting their focus to “preventive care,” which means taking care of what you eat and your health every day so you don’t get sick, rather than relying on medication after getting sick.

People have also come to realize the importance of preserving the natural environment as preventive care for our living environment. We hope that SPACE Cosme will be a wise choice for people who have a sense of value that they want to maintain their health by using skincare products with safe ingredients or want to respect their families and the beautiful Earth.

SPACE Cosme has chosen to take on the challenge of manufacturing chemical-free, plant-based, 100% biodegradable through 21st-century technological innovations and green technology instead of delivering “quasi-drugs” or “medicinal products” with the same benefits.
In order to make products a “quasi-drug” or “medicinal product,” it is necessary to combine ingredients such as synthetic fungicides and medicinal ingredients that have already been approved.

By using ingredients whose approved medicinal properties have been approved, you can market the product as having whitening effects, etc. It creates an image of being similar to a drug, and labeling a product as a “quasi-drug” or a “medicinal product” can be promotional factor to showcase product advantage.

However, while chemical ingredients that have been approved for medicinal use are effective, they are not something that people want to ingest.

SPACE Cosme products are based on our lactic acid bacteria biotechnology research, aiming to develop new green products that do not use conventional chemical ingredients.

To make products that are quasi-drugs or for medicinal uses, it is necessary to make products with only the combination of ingredients that are permitted to be used. This means that regardless of who makes the products, they all become more or less the same, which can deter venture innovation in the face of commoditization that gives larger capitals an advantage where competitiveness is all about lower prices and advertising.

Permission to use new ingredients can cost tens of millions of yen, which are added to consumer prices. SPACE Cosme chose not to take that path.

In fact, there are only two categories in many overseas markets: pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. The category of quasi-drugs and pharmaceuticals is only in Japan, and this category is meaningless for overseas sales.

The SPACE Cosme line features new products invented in the 21st century to meet the new health and environmental needs of people around the world by delivering both safety and efficacy.

Without being bound by any category defined in the Pharmaceutical Affairs Act in Japan, we will strive to convey our research results to the world by publishing academic papers and winning awards, and to provide for the health of many people.

As reference, “quasi-drugs and medicinal products” under the Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Act in Japan are as follows:

“Quasi-pharmaceutical products” are products that are not actively used for treatment, but for preventing nausea and other discomfort, heat rash, sores, bad breath, hair loss, or promoting hair growth, or deodorizing the body. Quasi-pharmaceutical products have mild effects on the human body. Quasi-pharmaceutical products also include products which are used for the purpose of exterminating mice, flies, mosquitoes, fleas, or other animals or insects similar to these for the benefit of the health of humans and animals.

SPACE Cosme describes the effects and efficacy in compliance with the indication requirements and rules under the Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Act. As mentioned above, there are mechanisms that make it difficult for technological innovation or for new research to enter the “quasi-drugs and medicinal products” market. The rules around the indication of effects and efficacy of cosmetic products have a similar aspect, which prevents communication of new research and technological innovation that would be useful to humankind to consumers.

As for the indication of effects and efficacy on the package of cosmetics, only those listed below can be used. Scope of cosmetic efficacy (excerpt of those only related to effects on skin):

(17) Cleans the skin (by removing dirt or other unwanted substances).
(18) Prevents acne and heat rash as face wash.

Please search the Internet and other sources for the effects and efficacy of SPACE Cosme to determine the effectiveness of our products for yourself.

SPACE Cosme products do not contain petroleum-derived petrolatum, silicon, and mineral oil, which generally provide smoothness and a moisturizing effect, so if you are used to using chemical products and feel that your usual feeling is lacking, apply a small amount of your SPACE Cosme product over a wide surface.

In addition, unlike skincare creams, which contain a large amount of water, SPACE Cosme products are formulated with a rich 70% concentration of oil with minimal moisture content, so if you feel the texture is heavy, you can dilute it with water on your palm before use.

(While petroleum-based petrolatum and mineral oil are excellent ingredients in terms of providing smooth spreading and hydration, they have some problems: plasticky, inorganic non-nutritive petroleum film clogs the pores and prevents the delivery of plant oil and other fatty acids as well as nutrients like minerals to the skin, petroleum-based ingredients are non-food-safe and are not biodegradable in the natural environment (not broken down by microorganisms), and products using such petroleum-derived ingredients cause a large amount of carbon dioxide emissions during production, which is detrimental to a sustainable global natural environment. For all of the aforementioned reasons, our research team does not recommend their use in consideration of keeping healthy skin and a sustainable global environment.)

SPACE Cosme aimed to develop skincare products that do not contain petroleum ingredients such as silicon, synthetic polymers, and mineral oil to achieve the usual smooth texture and matte finish.

When developing a skincare cream, some of the most demanded characteristics are: moist, firming, rich, and smooth, but not sticky or greasy. Also, a matte finish without shine is preferred.

However, you realize that when you use vegetable oil or make your own cream with natural ingredients such as vegetable oil, it is difficult to achieve a smooth and matte finish with only natural vegetable oil or natural ingredients.

If you use only natural vegetable ingredients or only vegetable oils, you will get “greasy and shiny” after you put too much and spread it on your hands.

Silicones such as dimethicone, cyclomethicone, and cyclopentasiloxane, and petroleum-derived materials such as vinyl polymers, including carbomers, copolymers, and cross-polymers, along with mineral oil (refined petroleum and mineral oil), petrolatum, paraffin, are often used to create the “smooth and matte” feel.

To clarify, mineral oil is the oil left after making plastics and other industrial products from petroleum. It is a highly refined oil.

You may have at home chemical products such as mechanical oil for bicycles, engine oil, lubricants, spray cans. These are made from mineral oil derived from petroleum, silicones, and polymers.

As you can see once you apply these to your hands, the oil ingredients above give your hands a very smooth and matte finish.

When these petroleum ingredients are added to a plant extract cream, which tends to be greasy, you get a smooth, non-oily feel with a matte finish easily at low cost.

The greatest characteristic of petroleum materials is that they are inexpensive. For manufacturers, the advantage is that they can produce creams similar to those made from vegetable oils at low cost and in large quantities from these inorganic materials that are resistant to degradation, suitable for mass production and long-term storage, enable low-cost production, and bring about increased profits.

For consumers, creams similar to those made from vegetable or animal oils can be bought cheaply and have the advantage of being “easy on the wallet.”

On the other hand, the disadvantage of petroleum materials is that they have no nutrients for humans and thus do not have beauty effects.
Mineral oils form an inorganic oil film just like refined vinyl, containing none of the nutrients called “essential fatty acids” such as palmitic acid, oleic acid, and palmitoleic acid, which are contained in vegetable oil.

In addition, the inorganic oil film that does not penetrate into the skin prevents any co-existing plant components containing nutrients from having beauty effects on the skin.

In other words, if a product contains both petroleum ingredients and nutritious plant ingredients, the oil film will interfere with the delivery of nutrients to the skin.

In addition, the strength of the oil film is stronger than that of vegetable oil, which makes it difficult to remove. Mineral oil is not permeable and remains on the skin for a long time, which clogs healthy pores, preventing skin breathing and causing skin problems.

Our research team believes that while these petroleum-derived materials can be used to care for bare skin on a daily basis, if you really think about your family and loved ones, that beauty treatment is not the best for healthy skin. It is important not to make a plasticky film from petroleum materials, which is a material that is different from living things, but to supplement the various nutrients of natural sebum with the same essential fatty acids obtained from natural plants and integrate them into the skin.

We aim to develop skincare products that will continue to be used on Earth for the next century, as well as products that can also be used in space. To this end, we have decided that it is desirable to take on the challenge of new 21st-century green technology, which is beneficial to the human body and the environment in which human beings live, using biotechnology that goes beyond the chemical technologies that contributed to the human race over the 100 years of the 20th century.

Taking into consideration the use of SPACE Cosme on the skin of loved ones and the future global environment,

we devoted a lot of R&D time to making our products using only beauty plant ingredients that are safe and nutritious even at a high cost and achieving moisturizing and conditioning effects together with a comfortable feel for an exquisite naturally balanced texture without using petroleum materials that can realize a smooth and matte feel easily and inexpensively.

We also devised a unique method of using SPACE Cosme by applying a thin layer of cream and adjusting the matte feeling with the back of the hand or the arm if you have applied too much cream, aiming to develop a beauty cream that is both safe, effective, and comfortable to use.

SPACE Cosme was created after repeated trial and error by researchers who made over 100 trial samples, day and night. We hope that you would try out the effects of SPACE Cosme on your skin and enjoy how it feels.

SPACE Cosme is a product line developed with consideration for biodegradable ingredients.

When discharged into the environment, the products are rapidly metabolized and reused in natural ecosystems, and the risk of environmental impact and pollution is extremely low. SPACE Cosme products are environmentally-conscious products.

On the other hand, many petroleum-derived chemical components and synthetic preservatives are resistant to degradation, and even if they do degrade, the degradation products can be toxic in nature.

The toxic effects are strong and long-lasting, and there is concern that they may have adverse effects on natural ecosystems, particularly microbial ecosystems.

Recently, in developed countries and other parts of the world, the problem of persistent plastic waste having an adverse effect on marine ecosystems has become a hot topic, and interest in environmentally-friendly and biodegradable raw materials has greatly increased worldwide in terms of efforts such as switching to biodegradable plastics and replacing conventional containers with alternatives that pose less risk of environmental pollution.

It is easy to imagine that in the future, new environment-friendly, sustainable products that are beneficial to mankind will replace the current mainstream.

SPACE Cosme are not made from petroleum ingredients, which are limited fossil materials, but are made from sustainable, environmentally-friendly materials made from plants and lactic acid bacteria that live in tofu refuse.
If you want to leave a beautiful Earth for the next generation, we hope that you start using SPACE Cosme.

Biodegradation means that waste discharged by humans is decomposed by microorganisms living in nature.
For your easy understanding, examples would be feces that are washed into the river being consumed and decomposed by microorganisms, or fallen leaves being eaten by insects and microorganisms and turned into compost.

This may be easy to imagine in areas without sewage systems, but the wastewater produced is either discharged directly into natural rivers or cleaned up using septic tanks before being discharged into rivers. In the case of natural rivers, the countless microorganisms living in the water play their role to maintain the environment. Microorganisms also live in septic tanks and clean the water by consuming and biodegrading the dirty water from washing the body and dishes.

The same applies to urban areas, where wastewater from sewers is collected in sewage treatment plants where it is biodegraded by microorganisms to purify the water.

In other words, even in the 21st century, humankind still lives in nature and relies on the power of natural microorganisms.

Products containing petroleum-derived synthetic fungicides and preservatives, synthetic surfactants and fragrances, tree resins and high concentrations of sap that are discharged in domestic wastewater are not biodegradable, meaning that microorganisms cannot consume them or can be killed by them.

Therefore, in many cases, the use of products containing synthetic chemical ingredients is prohibited in mountain huts, at campsites, and during hiking.

As an example that is easy for many people to understand, you may have experienced the smell of a synthetic fragrance that is not biodegraded from the water discharged from a sewage treatment plant in a nearby river or the sea. Odorless and persistent chemical components are also released into the nature. Surfers probably know that well.

It is easy to imagine what would happen to the global environment, to the organisms that live in the water, and to the seafood that they eat on a daily basis as being at the top of the food chain, if they continued to use such products many times a day and pour them into the sewage system. Being friendly to microorganisms that biodegrade our dirty water is also important for our health and that of our children.

In developed countries, biodegradable products that do not affect microbial ecosystems when discharged into the environment are attracting attention.

Many people worldwide are beginning to realize that it is important to maintain the beautiful green Earth for their own health and for many generations to come, rather than just pursue the convenience and benefit of companies.

Space cosmetics that are produced from sustainable plant materials and have excellent biodegradability in the natural world, like ORALPEACE that have been certified as the first and only oral care products in the environment-friendly product “Donguri Point Products” promoted by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. Is a product that suppresses CO2 for a decarbonized society with less environmental impact.
SPACe Cosme are mainly sold online in consideration of your safety and convenience.

Packing and shipping work will be done with all our heart and soul by members with disabilities who work at the social welfare corporation Tokyo Colony. Shopping leads to job creation, social participation, and financial independence for people with disabilities.

We are very sorry, but SPACE Cosme is not for everyone.

This product line was created by the efforts of many people involved in this research and project. We hope to create and deliver this product only for people who share the same values throughout the world, regardless of country, race, language, religion, age or gender.

In the relationship between a brand and loyal customers, just as with friends and lovers, when people who share the same values meet, they can experience joy, love, happiness, and wonderful days in their limited lives.

Brands listen to customers who love them and work hard to provide good research, products, and services, so that customers can obtain higher quality products and services, fostering a happy, trust relationship between the two parties.

We would like people around the world who share the same values to know about SPACE Cosme.

This is because we are not a company that puts sales and shareholder profits first, but rather a social company that places priority on the happiness of those who use SPACE Cosme products, those who work for or are involved with our business. Through our business, we also support those who are in trouble.

Rather than placing priority on making money over the happiness of working people and families, or on unreasonable advertising just to sell, we place priority on social activities through innovative research and development, sincere manufacturing, and honest business. We want to exist sustainably, even if only on a small scale, for the limited people around the world who sympathize with our values.

On the other hand, we do not want our products to be known or picked up by people who have completely different values, anonymous critics and others who anonymously post criticism or negative reviews on sites, people who have obtained the product with the intention of creating a product that mimics our product or its concept or design, or people who cannot respect the creativity or individuality of each of our products.

With the spread of Internet sales sites, the barriers of traditional brick-and-mortar department stores and brand-name stores have been eliminated, along with face-to-face sales. It has become easier for everyone to access brands, creating a gap and mismatch between a brand and purchasers in spite of the enhanced accessibility and convenience.

The credibility of the media has also declined: the Internet is now flooded with information of all kinds, and many behind-the-scenes activities are committed to mislead consumers such as paid search advertising and paid promotion of rating posts. In this age, people anonymously play with other people’s individuality and lives, and sad incidents have occurred.

It is regrettable that people with different values cannot recognize each other’s individuality in this wide world, making their own arguments, demeaning each other anonymously, or engaging in shameful acts in front of their children and descendants for money, and such acts should be avoided.

In this age of blockchain, all IP addresses, personal information, and information written are stored, and the facts will continue to be preserved into the future. We are a professional group of over 100 researchers and creators who value and respect individuality, research results, and creativity more than money. We would be pleased to receive your opinions and requests regarding research results and deliverables through our direct contact form.

We are entering an age where people who anonymously write comments on other companies’ corporate activities, the lives of their employees, and the products that put their whole lives into, or try to challenge research results and creativity, must beware of consequences.

If you have different values, we would appreciate it if you could just pass over our products without purchasing or anonymously writing that something else is superior. In our long-term efforts to support disabled people through our business, it has become very important for us to respect each other’s individuality, including our families. There is not one person in the world who is the same as another. Different people are living at the same time.

And the great thing about the Internet is that we are in an age where people sharing the same values can come together across countries, races, languages, religions, ages, and genders.

There is a famous poem by Misuzu KANEKO in a Japanese language textbook for third-grade elementary school students.
“Me, a Little Bird, and a Bell”

Even if I stretched my arms,
I cannot fly in the sky at all.
But the bird that can fly
Cannot run on the ground as fast as I.
Even if I shake my body,
I cannot produce pretty sounds,
But the bell that can ring
Doesn’t know as many songs as I.
The bell and the bird and I–
All are different and all are good.
Misuzu KANEKO

All are different and all are good.
Everyone in the world is different.
You don’t have to compare yourself with anyone else. There is no need to criticize people who have different values. Respect others’ individuality and live to the fullest.

We hope that people who have come to know about SPACE Cosme through some kind of connection, and who have identified with part of our concept, will be with us to live together in the future.

Finally, we want to mention John Lennon’s Imagine.
For this year, 2022, when Olympians from all over the world paid tribute to each other’s challenges in the Winter Olympics, and when innocent people and children are dying in Ukraine in the midst of a war, winter chill, and COVID-19.

PEACE!!

We would appreciate it if you could ask individual questions. We also welcome messages about projects, research and products. We would appreciate it if you could feel free to contact us using the contact form.

Development goal of “Space Cosmetics”

In space life, there are various skin care issues such as dryness, UV rays, skin peeling on the soles of the feet, and hangnail of fingers when looking for something. On the other hand, there are restrictions on the chemical components used for mounting on the International Space Station. In addition, on the earth, there are problems of skin safety care and environmental destruction due to the outflow of chemical components to the natural world.

In response to these human skin care issues, we applied the innovative technology of oral pieces selected for ISS-equipped products to the skin field. The first plant-based chemical-free skin care product from Japan that contains lactic acid bacteria antibacterial peptide, moisturizes and protects the skin, enables long-term systemic care with a very small amount, and prevents damage to the ISS aircraft and damage to the global environment. We will work on a mission to develop ahead of the world with advanced green technology.

For skin care issues in space life

(1) Emollient component (oil-based moisturizing component) by vegetable oil and moisturizing component (water-based moisturizing component) by glycerin protect from ultraviolet rays and dryness.

(2) Whole body skin care is possible with this one.

(3) Concentrated type allows care with a very small amount, reducing the weight and dust of the mounted items.

(4) Due to the innovation of antiseptic technology, no chemical components are used and the risk of damage to the aircraft is reduced.

(5)Keep your fingers injured by what you are looking for in good health.

(6)Moisturizes skin peeling and prevents floating, making the room hygienic.

We aim to provide new benefits to humankind.

Due to the characteristic of lactic acid bacteria antibacterial peptide, “only germs are sterilized and human cells are not destroyed”, research that brings new benefits to humankind, which was difficult with alcohol and synthetic bactericidal agents, has become a problem in the nursing care field. It is useful for bedridden care for bedridden people, improving patient QOL, and aiming to reduce the annual nursing care cost in Japan, which is currently over 10 trillion yen and estimated to be 25 trillion yen in 2040, and the global nursing care burden.
It is also useful for those who suffer from dermatitis due to low irritation. The ingredients are made from plants and water, and since it does not contain any chemical components, it suppresses CO2 emissions, is highly biodegradable and has a low environmental load, and protects the natural environment of the earth. We also aim to contribute to.
Until now, synthetic bactericides and alcohol (ethanol), which have side effects on the human body, and antibiotics, which have the problem of developing resistant bacteria, were the only options for antibacterial agents. We aim to contribute to humankind as a whole by demonstrating the same or higher effects at concentrations, and by developing skin applications for lactic acid bacteria antibacterial peptides that are decomposed into amino acids and are friendly to the human body and the environment after they have finished their role.

Kohei Nagatoshi General Manager of Research and Development Neonisin Inventor Bachelor of Agriculture, Hokkaido University
It will be implemented as an industry-academia-government project by a development team consisting of doctors of medicine, doctors of engineering, doctors of agriculture, doctors of pharmacy, doctors of dentistry, clinicians, social entrepreneurs, creators, etc.

What is TRIFE space project?

The number of elderly people requiring long-term care in Japan, which is aging the most in the world, is currently over 6 million, and the annual long-term care cost is over 10 trillion yen. .. And in the future, the same aging problem as in Japan is expected on a large scale in the world.
According to a survey by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, the difference between the healthy life expectancy of being able to live independently without long-term care and the actual average life expectancy is about 10 years, and there is an urgent need to shorten the period of bedridden long-term care.

In recent years, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has clarified the correlation between the number of remaining teeth and the incidence of dementia, periodontal disease bacteria and systemic diseases (myocardial infarction, diabetes, etc.), and has developed 8020 exercise to thoroughly implement oral care that leaves teeth and extends healthy life. Promote.

However, in the field of long-term care, there is a risk that the conventional oral disinfectants may damage the abdomen when swallowed by elderly people who have difficulty in gargling or spitting, and the burden on the caregiver is still heavy with water-only care.

In order to reduce the physical, mental and time burden on caregivers, oral care products that are safe to swallow while improving the effectiveness and efficiency of care, as well as useful for dementia prevention care and healthy longevity for young people, are required in the new era. There was a need for low environmental load oral care products.

Innovative products that are kind to the body and the environment to create healthy longevity and jobs for people with disabilities
This project is based on cutting-edge lactic acid bacterium biotechnology research that controls bacteria with bacteria originating from Kyushu University. It is a business that develops innovative oral care products, oral pieces, that are safe to swallow while sterilizing trouble-causing bacteria and are free of chemical components.
ORALPEACE was developed in 2013 and provided a total of more than 1 million pieces. It was adopted at more than 2,000 locations such as the University of Tokyo Hospital, advanced medical institutions and long-term care facilities. It has been selected as a candidate product and has begun to be exported from Japan to Europe, the United States, Asia, etc.In order to connect the cutting-edge innovative technology of humankind that can be utilized in space to solve social problems, the long-term care cost and human burden reduction that continues to increase at over 10 trillion yen annually in Japan alone, job creation for persons with disabilities through our main business, disaster areas We are working on a sustainable business that responds to the SDGs, such as support and environmental protection with highly biodegradable products.

Kenji Sonomoto, a world leader in antibacterial peptide research, and Kohei Nagatoshi, a researcher at Kyushu University, created antibacterial peptides produced by lactic acid bacteria that live in Fukuoka Prefecture’s Okara in 2011, when the Great Tohoku Earthquake struck. A management consultant and social entrepreneur who has launched the first organic cosmetics brand with European organic certification in Japan and has been engaged in activities to support people with disabilities through business, triggered by the fact that he was given a child with a disability to contribute to society. Consult with Daisuke Teshima.
After that, his father witnessed oral problems due to fighting illness and aging of his family, and started the oral peace business in 2013 with the aim of creating a social business that connects innovative technology to healthy longevity and job creation for the disabled. Initially, the situation was severe with one employee and zero funds, but more than 100 researchers and clinicians supported the project as volunteers, and it was adopted by advanced medical and long-term care institutions nationwide, with a total of more than 1 million. Offer.

2014 Yokohama Business Grand Prix Best Award / Audience Award, 2015 Japan Venture Award Best Award / Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry Award, 2016 Japan Foundation Selected as 10 people who will change the future of Japan, 2017 Good Design Award, 2018 3 Entered the continent, won the 2019 Japan Agricultural Chemistry Technology Award, 2020 NHK international broadcast special program broadcast worldwide, selected as a 2021 international space station onboard product.

In addition to the “oral piece” of oral care for space, we will promote the development of technology to the “FACEPEACE” of skin care, etc., and promote the solution of human skin care issues.

(1) Quantitative evaluation
ORALPEACE has been selected as a product mounted on the International Space Station, suggesting clinical effects and expected effects of reducing the burden of long-term care in various academic societies and papers, and has been adopted by more than 2,000 advanced medical institutions. With a total of more than 1 million units provided, it has become a number that will spread to the elderly requiring long-term care in Japan, contributing to improving the QOL of the elderly and reducing the burden on long-term care. In addition, profit sharing is realized by production and sales at affiliated facilities for persons with disabilities. It leads to financial independence of working disabled people.
Effect estimation (theoretical estimation)
● Reduction of long-term care costs in Japan
Estimated annual long-term care costs of 10 trillion yen in 2020 and 25 trillion yen in 2040. Approximately several trillion yen reduction in long-term care costs to extend healthy life expectancy

● Reduction of long-term care costs and burdens for the world and humankind
Extending healthy life expectancy through oral care will reduce long-term care costs by several hundred trillion yen
Annual long-term care cost in Japan 10 trillion yen ÷ 6 million elderly people requiring long-term care = 1.7 million yen per person annual long-term care cost
* Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare data: Japan 65-year-old population 36 million, of which the percentage of elderly people requiring nursing care is about 16% 2050 Asia Estimated population aged 65 and over 600 million (* UN) x 16% = 2050 Asia number of elderly people requiring nursing care 100 million people. Estimated annual nursing care costs for the entire Asia region in 2050 will be approximately 170 trillion yen

● Reduction of the long-term care workforce of the world and humankind
Reduction of elderly people requiring long-term care by oral care → Hundreds of millions of young people can engage in industries other than elderly care
* Estimated that the number of elderly people requiring long-term care is 6 million and the population of long-term care workers is about 2 million = 0.3 workers are required for each elderly person requiring long-term care.

The above is a rough imagination, but in the future, a huge amount of money and labor can be transferred to future fields such as space development and solving food problems other than caring for the elderly and nursing care for the elderly. We believe that it will contribute to occupational diversity and bring about great development for humankind in the future.

(2) Qualitative evaluation
This initiative has become a variety of news in Japan and overseas, and has contributed to enlightening many people about the importance of health care and health and longevity, and raising health awareness. It also contributes to the normalization of people with disabilities and the creation of worth living.

The project has endeavored to take off into a sustainable enterprise. Products include oral care products and skin care products that use patented technology from 21st century green technology, and sales revenue is the source of activities.
In the future, we will work with colleagues from all over the world who share our aspirations and values to challenge the universe with innovative personal care products for space, and contribute to the health and longevity of the earth, environmental protection, and support for the vulnerable. I would like to spread the social business model to the world and the universe.
