Product Summary

Otsuka Pharmaceutical Cosmedics

Otsuka Pharmaceutical is involved in R&D, manufacturing and sales of a range of pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals based on its corporate philosophy of creating innovative products for better health worldwide. As one aspect of these activities, Otsuka began to focus on the skin, the largest organ of the human body, which accounts for approximately 16% of body weight. Otsuka continues R&D based on the concept of cosmedics*1, maximizing unique ideas and technologies to create skin care products that contribute to healthy skin.
Cosmedics-related R&D was initiated in 1990 at the Otsu Skin Care Research Institute near Lake Biwa in Japan's Shiga Prefecture. Seeking to improve health not only from within, but also through promoting the health of the body's protective covering, the skin, researchers became aware of AMP*2, a component that is produced in the body. Their dedication bore fruit with the development of Energy Signal AMP*3, a quasi-drug ingredient that has received approval for novel effects and efficacy*4. Formulated with Energy Signal AMP, the InnerSignal line of products, created to promote healthy skin, was launched in 2005.
Available exclusively through the brand website, the InnerSignal line currently consists of 13 products.
