The joint technical seminar of Ichimaru Pharcos and Ajinomoto organized by Actichem Marketing Corporation last March 23 at Richmonde Hotel in Eastwood City was another success in our continuing pursuit of excellence in the field of functional cosmetic ingredients. Guest speakers from both companies tackled interesting topics that were sure to tickle and challenge the creative and keen minds of those who attended, from higher management to marketing and R & D people, the last group being the ones who are always on the lookout for something new, something innovative, and quite out-of-the-ordinary. Well, Ichimaru and Ajinomoto delivered exactly what was expected of them and it is our highest hope that our customers went home full.
The topics presented by Ajinomoto in the persons of Mr. Keitaro Saito, Specialty Chemicals Division Manager of Ajinomoto-Singapore, and Ms. Stephanie Ng, Sales and Marketing Executive of the same, were as follows:
- Baby Care Trends in Japan and Korea
- Mild Amino Acid Surfactants from Top to Toe
- Functional Emollient Care for Your Lips
- Learn to Make a Transparent Color-changing Lipstick with Gelatinisation Agents
As for Ichimaru Pharcos, Mr. Norihisa Kawai, the company’s Expert Research Scientist, and Mr. Ryo Nishiyama, Sales Manager for Asian Region, discussed the following:
- “Inflammaging” (comment: a coined word indicating skin ageing due to inflammatory processes)
- Hair Damage Treatment and Hair Growth
- Skin Whitening
Many of our valued customers, both old and new (there were many new ones!), attended the seminar and we are only thankful for their continued trust in our company and products. We appreciate each and everyone of you!
