Protecting human health and healing disease: Enhancing quality of life through our three core strengths.

Fuji Chemical Industries focus on three core businesses based on our philosophy that improving quality of life, even in an aging population, contributes to the development of society. Our APIs and Pharmaceutical businesses provide excipients and processing services, such as drug delivery system (DDS) technology to meet today's needs. Our Life Sciences business is developing preparations and health food supplements using the natural antioxidant Astaxanthin which has garnered worldwide attention for its preventive health care and anti aging benefits. Life sciences also offer specialty excipients that can improve and solve many of the tabletting problems. Our Retail business is engaged in marketing and PR of our Astaxanthin based products to consumers.

Life Sciences Business

Utilizing proprietary excipients and functional materials which leverage the safety and efficacy of natural materials, we are now developing a wide range of products which have applications in pharmaceuticals, health foods and cosmetics.

Functional ingredients

The Fuji Chemical Industries Group began its work with astaxanthin, renowned for its benefits in the prevention of disease, as early as 1994. Since then, we have diversified our astaxanthin business from raw materials to the marketing of finished products. We have also been actively involved in seminars and symposiums on astaxanthin, and have accumulated a wealth of research evidence in collaboration with universities and research organizations. The Fuji Chemical Industries Group will continue in its role as a leading innovator of astaxanthin in order to make a positive contribution to the evolution of preventive health care.
