A two-group organization to cultivate innovation and know-how.

Our research group and formulation development group work together to fulfil our customers’ needs and help them shape their future projects.

Research & Development

Research development group

DAITO KASEI is before all a manufacturing company. However, many ingredients developed by our research group with our original technology are not necessarily meant be commercialized right away. Developing ingredients is also a way for us to cultivate our know-how, improve our technology and in the end provide our customers with better solutions. We believe this is the very purpose of having advanced technological capabilities.

Research & Development

Formulation development group

Newly developed ingredients always undergo a practical evaluation process. Our developers test the products on their own skin rather than animals giving them truly first-hand knowledge of the effects. It is also capital to find how best to use these ingredients and to evaluate their stability over time in the harshest storage conditions.We have application & development groups in France, China, and Thailand to meet the diverse needs of our customers all over the world.

Since 2010

Since 2013


Joint facilities with CHEMICO group since 2018

Presentation at the IFSCC

Despite strict screening, DAITO KASEI has been able to participate in many IFSCC (International Federation Society of Cosmetic Chemists) congresses since our first participation at the Venice congress of 1994. After Venice congress, we made oral presentations at the Orlando congress in 2004 and 2016, and at the London congress in 2022.
