PROTEX·JAPAN was born in 1998 as an OEM cosmetics planning and manufacturing firm.
In 2009, we established a laboratory and plant in Kyoto to conduct world-class product creation through an excellent team working in excellent facilities. With all of our staff working together as one, we create skin care and hair care products that can be recommended to customers with confidence.
We also conduct various research and development projects through collaboration among industry, academia, and government. In recent years, we have established sites in Indonesia and Shanghai, and are delivering information throughout Asia, the US, Europe, and the rest of the world.
We believe that our company could not exist except through interactions with others, and will always treasure our encounters and relationships with our customers. As we continue our unyielding efforts toward further growth, we humbly ask for your ongoing support.
