Who We Are

Kanebo was founded in 1887 as a trader of cotton. Over the course of a century, we expanded our business to include silk manufacturing and exporting. Then, in 1936, we released Savon de Soie, a luxurious soap developed through years of study in silk technology. We launched our cosmetics business a year later, in 1937.

Today, Kanebo Cosmetics is one of the leading cosmetics companies in Japan. Our wide and diverse portfolio of skincare and makeup brands sell through multiple distribution channels in over 50 countries and regions in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.

Extensive, innovative research backs all stages of cosmetics development, from basic dermatological science to the final product design. In the past decades, Kanebo Cosmetics has laid a path to new areas in beauty and cosmetics science by fusing forefront research and development with unique research domains.

Japanese craftsmanship — its devotion to perfection and innovation - goes into creating a wide portfolio of highly original brands and products with outstanding functions and sensory quality qualities that satisfy both the skin and mind.

Our unique beauty methods, a trademark of Kanebo, reflect decades of experience as a pioneer of esthetic research in Japan. Fusing advanced skin science with Japanese sensibilities and time-proven beauty traditions, Kanebo is dedicated to enriching people’s lives through beauty all over the world.

As a member of the KAO group since 2006, we are developing as a global company by strengthening our brand portfolio and stepping up investment in markets with outstanding growth prospects: China, Southeast Asia, and Europe.

Kanebo Cosmetics is committed to fulfilling its corporate mission in a social and sustainable by practicing strict environmental policies, nurturing diversity and development in the workforce, and harnessing its accumulated beauty knowledge for the benefit of society.
