We aim to develop environmentally-conscious products through "Renovation" of raw materials with potential industrial uses that have yet to be discovered! This new brand from Technoble, "Re:Derma&Earth®," has been commercialized based on the concept of "Renovation." The idea for "Renovation" was born from the integration of "Re," representing "Renewal," and "Innovation." With this idea in mind, we strive to contribute to users' skin (derma) and the Earth.
Habikino City in Osaka Prefecture is blessed with quality water, fertile soil, and an ideal climate for growing figs. In fact, the city thrives on fig cultivation, which is not well known. One of the essential tasks of growing sweet and aromatic fig fruits is pruning in winter. Fig branches are packed with nutrients in winter, but there has been no way to utilize them.
With the aim of effective utilization of pruned fig branches from Habikino City, Osaka Prefecture, we performed R&D focused on the barrier function of the branch's bark. This resulted in successful development of Refigo®, an essence that works very effectively on the honey layer, which has a barrier function in the skin. Refigo® works effectively to promote ceramide synthesis, which is vital for the barrier function of the honey layer.
The western part of Japan, from Shikoku to Kyushu, is a major region of bamboo shoot production. The red argillaceous soil of Ehime Prefecture is perfect for growing quality bamboo shoots. Large numbers of harvested bamboo shoots are processed into products, such as by boiling them in spring water, and a large volume of bamboo shoot bark is produced as a by-product. However, a way to recycle them effectively has yet to be found.
Aiming at effective utilization of the barks of bamboo shoots produced in Ehime Prefecture, we carried out R&D and succeeded in developing Reshoobam®, an essence that has outstanding anti-aging effects. Bamboo shoots have rhizomes that can extend across a mountain, reinforcing the mountain’s foundation. Reshoobam® has the ability to promote synthesis of dermal components such as hyaluronic acid and collagen, reinforcing the skin’s foundation.
