[Thank You! Peeling Shower Gel] conditions the skin by gently removing dead skin cells, and can be used in nursing care situations. The source of body odor (nonenal) is not a substance generated directly by the skin, but rather a metabolite generated by the skin flora. It increases during the day when sebum secretion is high. Using this product on a regular basis keeps the bad bacteria under control and can curb the generation of the odor source (nonenal).
– R&D Anecdote [Case 1] Peeling gel that reduces body odor –
Nursing care is an inevitable issue these days, and we wanted to make our contribution, not by pharmaceutical products but by something only cosmetics could achieve. Then, the idea of a peeling gel that can reduce body odor for those who cannot bathe regularly came to mind. Adding deodorizing ingredients is easy, but the challenge was not only to provide a deodorizing experience, but also to actually quantify odor reduction. This is because saying that “users will experience reduced odor” is not convincing enough to sell the product. We looked for ways of quantifying this factor, and found a venture company that could do it. Employees and executives of our company joined an experiment to measure body odor, and we succeeded in quantifying the results. The product name is Thank You! Peeling Shower Gel for the Body (medicated clear PW). It has been on sale since October 2015 as our original product.
[B Hand Cream] Hand cream with bear oil from Hokkaido, a precious and highly effective ingredient for rough skin. Because the product contains bear oil, which is very similar to human subcutaneous fat, it blends right in to soften and moisturize your skin. Its high healing ability even heals injuries during hibernation, and is very effective in curing chapped skin. Can be used on the hands and the entire body.
– R&D Anecdote [Case 2] Hand cream with bear oil –
We wanted to create a hand cream that was different from other brands. As we were discussing various aspects, we began to talk about luxury foods, and someone remarked “bear paws are expensive.” That was the inspiration. What about bear oil? We looked into it and discovered that it is similar to human fat, has powerful healing ability, and has not yet been used as an ingredient in cosmetics. So we found a Hokkaido supplier, tested the oil at the company and submitted the necessary paperwork, and received its approval as a cosmetics ingredient. Then, we asked the R&D personnel to create a prototype of a non-sticky, moisturizing hand cream providing the benefits of bear oil. We used a well-received existing cream as the base, blended the oil, and came up with a new hand cream with a very pleasant texture. It has been receiving repeat orders ever since, even in 2015.
