Okayama Factory was a pioneer in the industry, introducing the "Cellular Production System", a revolutionary production method that promotes improvement activities and a system that meets a wide variety of needs. The advanced production system has been highly praised in the industry and has been reported in the press and media.
The 15,372 m2 manufacturing plant is located next to the Yoshii River, which has an abundance of water and a crystal-clear stream, and the "Iwai Waterfall" upstream of the plant has been selected by the Ministry of the Environment as one of the "Top 100 Famous Water in Japan. The most important reason for locating the factory here is the beautiful natural environment, and the fact that the most important element in supporting cosmetics is "water," which is also one of the reasons we insist on the quality of our products.
Reliable quality is indispensable for our products to be loved beyond time. In 2000, we obtained ISO9001*1 certification, the international standard for quality management systems, and in 2021, ISO22716*2 certification, the international standard for manufacturing and quality control of cosmetics. We have established a world-class quality control system by conducting strict inspections from receiving raw materials to manufacturing and shipping products. Our commitment to thorough quality and the high quality of our products have been highly evaluated by customers in Japan and overseas.
※1 International standard for quality assurance by the International Organization for Standardization.
※2 International standards for manufacturing and quality control of cosmetics.
In order to ensure a certain level of manufacturing quality, new prescriptions developed by the Central Research Laboratory are tested in the field, and the information from the manufacturing method to technical feedback is shared between the Research Headquarters and the factory. Our ultimate goal is efficient and error-free production, and to create a "manufacturing" process that combines quality and efficiency.
