Strengths of the Central Research Institute

1.Open Inside, Closed Outside

  • Since the institute is located near a residential area, it was designed to reduce the number of windows on the perimeter and bring in natural light from the inner courtyard in order to create a laboratory with a bright environment while respecting the privacy of its neighbors.

2.A Structure Maximizing R&D Potential

  • In order to stay abreast of ever-evolving basic research, the facility is capable of ground reinforcement, air pressure adjustment, and strict temperature control.
  • As an urban research facility, we are committed to compliance at the Central Research Institute (including noise, drainage, waste, and hazardous materials management).
  • Within the facility, we have secured a spacious area for researchers to generate new ideas and innovations.

3.“Enchanting” Research Facility Ensuring Peace of Mind and Trust Among Haircare Professionals.

  • In designing the facility, our priority has been to create an aesthetic space suitable for developing products for elevated beauty.
  • We have also established tour routes so that haircare professionals can tour our production development processes.
