In product development place the highest priority on quality and safety

Our mission is to use cosmetics to bring people joy and peace of mind and help them live a fulfilling life. The pursuit of the fundamental values of sensuousness, intelligence and reliability is embedded in our research and development and key to our efforts to achieve this mission. The basic concept underpinning everything we do is to create a uniquely beautiful culture through the high-level integration of these three values and to supply good, high-quality products, just as KOSÉ’s founder intended. Our aim is to create high value-added cosmetic products with an emphasis on timely and original research to contribute to KOSÉ’s never-ending growth.
