Details of the signature material

Advantages of capsules

Active ingredients are encased in capsules, preventing quality deterioration from UV rays and oxidation. This allows even ingredients that easily deteriorate to be included in the formula. Oils, which normally require the help of surfactants to blend in, can be packed into the capsules, creating a product that is non-sticky yet gentle to the skin.


- Superior ability to maintain freshness
- Pleasant to use without stickiness
- Net structure maintains moisture well

- Scrub effect from the capsules
- Moisturizing and tightening effect from the algae-derived ingredient

Moisturizing with the algae-derived ingredient

The algae-derived ingredient used in the capsules acts not only as a container, but also has its own positive effects including moisturizing, tightening, and anti-aging. Also, the capsule hardness can be adjusted to create a scrub that is gentle to the skin. Lotions, essences, cleansing agents... The product possibilities are endless. It is our signature product providing great effect, usability and visual impact.

Questions about the design
1. What is this product? Is it a beauty serum? Do you also have foundation or cleansing products?

Capsules are mostly used for beauty serums. There are also toners, creams, and face washes. We have not yet created foundation or cleansing (makeup remover) using them.

2. Why do you use capsules?

We use them so that the active ingredients encased in the capsules can remain fresh until they are absorbed into the skin, and because the visual impact is unique and appealing.

No, the formula is designed so they do not dissolve by the external solution.
