For the past 38 years, beauty specialists at FANCL have pioneered preservative-free skincare that cultivates long-lasting beauty—both inside and out. With more than 530 * patents and two state-of-the-art research and development facilities, FANCL delivers on its “less is more” philosophy with science-backed products that are completely free of preservatives.
The harm caused by cosmetics and skincare products was a major social issue back in the 1970s. Preservatives were widely used to prevent skincare products from spoiling, and these preservatives and other harmful additives were causing damage to women’s skin.
What’s so terrible about preservatives? Essentially, preservatives weaken the skin’s function, chipping away at healthy skin and accelerating the ageing process. Instead of glowing and youthful skin, preservative-powered products may result in irritability, affect the tightness of collagen and stimulate melanin production.#
FANCL aimed to break from tradition, striving to develop safe and effective skincare products. Considerable effort was made to develop “No Preservative” skincare, opening up new horizons for the beauty industry; providing only pure ingredients to enhance the skin’s long-lasting beauty.
