Our proven R&D and technological capabilities enable us to develop high-performing premium cosmetics, which is the true aim of ALBION. Based on the latest dermatological science and the highest standards for safety and effectiveness, we are focused on creating products that deeply satisfy customer needs and offer a luxurious experience.
Located in the heart of Tokyo, just 20 minutes from ALBION headquarters in Ginza, this lab serves as a symbol of an urban-oriented organization where information is concentrated from all over the world. Here, we conduct product development and pharmacological research that is critical to ALBION’s global success—right in the city center.
This open laboratory is located in the "ALBION PHILOSOPHY" shop in the NEWoMan Yokohama (Yokohama City) commercial facility. Besides conducting basic research here, we also meet with ALBION customers to understand their needs and preferences, and see firsthand how our products are improving their skin. This close contact with customers gives us direct feedback on our products, which is critical for us to understand as we create world-class cosmetics for them.
The Okinawa Laboratory was established in the Okinawa Health Biotechnology R&D Center in Uruma City, Okinawa Prefecture. Here, we develop cosmetic ingredients using subtropical plants and marine resources. We also evaluate and test highly functional raw materials, and determine how to incorporate these powerful ingredients into our premium products.
At the foot of Shirakami-Sanchi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in northern Japan, we have established a laboratory and a pilot farm with the cooperation of Fujisato, Akita Prefecture. Here, we are carefully cultivating plants that may have the high-performing, skin-enhancing properties that we use in crafting our cosmetics.
Institute of Traditional Plants in Sri Lanka
The Institute is our in-house research lab in Sri Lanka, where Ayurvedic medicine is popular and a treasure trove of native plants can be found. In collaboration with Tokyo University of Agriculture, Saga University, and Wayamba University of Sri Lanka, we are aiming to create new cosmetics by developing unique ingredients from endemic plants that have not been put into practical use.
