Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. (Otsuka) has announced new packaging for Medicated Scalp Shampoo and Medicated Skin Wash from the UL·OS brand of total body skin care products addressing the concerns of middle-aged men.
Based on the unique Otsuka Pharmaceutical concept of Cosmedics*1 for healthy skin, the UL·OS total body men's skin care brand was launched in 2008 with a focus on the cycle of cleansing, moisturizing, energizing, and protection to combat impurities, dryness, and ultraviolet exposure, the primary causes of skin damage.
Driven by increased demand for odor control and scalp care, UL·OS cleansing items have become popular elements of the brand. Capitalizing on this popularity, UL·OS Medicated Scalp Shampoo and Medicated Skin Wash will appear in new packaging designed with a stylish, cool adult male image, conceived to capture an expanded segment of fans.
As a total body skin care brand developed through pharmaceutical expertise, UL·OS will continue to encourage adoption of year-round skin care routines and support middle-aged men who seek to maintain healthy skin.
