Skincare for humankind, created with the 21st century space technology for clear, hydrated, healthy and beautiful skin.
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.

* “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.

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.
