Two join to work on skincare

Kao has signed an agreement with its Japanese compatriot Daiichi Sankyo Healthcare, a specialist in over-the-counter (OTC) drugs, to collaborate in joint development in skin care, using each other's skin- and health-related fundamental and formulation technologies. Daiichi Sankyo Healthcare will use Kao's skin product formulation technology to develop OTC drugs.

Kao, which has hitherto used its capabilities in surfactants and life sciences to create skin care and hair care products in its Health and Beauty Care Business, said that this in line with its ‘Precision Life Care’ approach, under which it has “accelerated R&D of various health-related technologies to produce individualised solutions meeting every person's needs”.
