Development Story

The Hyaluronic acid development story

Hyaluronic acid is a type of mucopolysaccharide composed of glucuronic acid and N-acetylglucosamine and acts to retain moisture. It is distributed in the body, in the human skin, synovial fluid and in the vitreous body of the eyes.

Kewpie began research and development Hyaluronic acid in 1983 and has since completed many R&D projects.

The impetus for development came from the realization and as a result of much research, low molecular weight Hyaluronic acid has special properties such as being anti-inflammatory.

Development of Hyabest®(A)

The parts of the body in which Hyaluronic acid is most common include the skin, the joints and the vitreous body of the eyes. Might it be possible that Hyaluronic acid has some effect on other parts of the body? Development began from this simple question.

Development of Hyabest®(J)

My drive for research is to hope that many customers may be supported to live healthier lives by ingesting Hyaluronic acid.

Development of Hyabest®(S)LF-P

At the time, the prevailing view was that if it were Hyaluronic acid, it must be high-molecular. So it was the sparking of interest in what conversely might be the case for low-molecular Hyaluronic acid that led to this development.

Development of Hyalo-Oligo®

Hyaluronic acid is really popular amongst women. It was our thought that letting everything wash away after just one rinse of face or hair was a waste that led to this development.

Development of Hyaloveil®-P

Hyalorepair® is a product that came about when many female colleagues of Kewpie expressed the view that they wanted to use Hyaluronic acid to repair rough skin.

Development of Hyalorepair®

We focused in development on the physiological functions of low-molecular Hyaluronic acid in response to the growing needs of the global cosmetics market to encourage beautiful skin by increasing the inherent physiological function of skin.
