Corporate Philosophy

We constantly pursuit beauty and health, but we also adopt the lifestyle changes. Since its founding, Hoshi Corporation main business lines are Sales of Raw Materials, Planning and Sales of Containers and Packaging Materials, Sales and contract manufacturing of Cosmetics and Health foods, but we also accomplished as a customer-oriented OEM manufacturer with continue steady growth. Our principle hasn’t changed since our company was established and we will continuously implement stand as a “proposal-based” company. Japan currently has rapidly aging population and the desire for constant improvement for beauty and health also increased, but at the same time, we live in an age where ”the demand for beauty and well-being” has become more individualist and diverse. In order to adjust to the current market needs, we are required to develop new product lines. We at Hoshi Corporation will keep adapting its business environment to further contribute development on the cosmetic industry. Each and every employee will maintain the “specialist” mind and motivation and focus on the future for new challlenges. In the field of cosmetics and supplements, we continue to pursue the development of higher quality products and strong structure by upgrading the business system as a trading company.

Greeting

Taku Hoshino,President

Each and every employee at Hoshi Corporation committed to be the backbone of the beauty industry and we strive to only deliver products of the highest quality to our clients and our client’s customers. In order to achieve these goals, our company management has three main principles.

1. Multi-skilled Employees and Steady Supply
The requirements for cosmetics have become more diverse, small-mass markets and it can be said the market has grown to be more “niche-market” and “customer-based”. OEM companies are required to manufacture a limited production of diversified products and need to establish a manufacturing line and time for these different products with their own technique. We at Hoshi Corporation while implementing improving factory automation infrastructure, also put strength into our staff skills. We increased the number of staff with technical knowledge and we also strive to maintain a stable supply of products by identifying “accurate handicraft” and “work that maximize the machines role” while complementing the two.
2. Develop a High-Margin Cosmetic
In order to fulfill our purpose of supplying a high-quality cosmetic series, we started a ODM project (named HOP Project) in 2016, and with this project we were able to develop a wide range of products from Skincare to Haircare. In recent years, cosmetics with a mixture of logical sense (technique, evidence) and sensory base (usability, smell and color) are more required based on the latest trends.
Our company has a cross-functional team enforced by a creative planning team, skilled R&D, quality guaranteed production department and a sales team making effective proposals.
3.Global Network Support
Clients requesting support to expand its business abroad and OEM orders from overseas are increasing every year. In order to help our clients demands and provide a high quality “Made in Japan” cosmetics, we obtained internationally recognized qualifications.
As one of our initiatives, we successfully obtained ISO22716 (Cosmetics GMP) related to quality and the environment for our Gunma and Saitama factories in 2018.
In addition to this acquisition, our Okinawa factory has been approved as the Japan’s first bounded factory.
Okinawa factory also has both Halal and ECOCERT Certificate, therefore we can support not only local, but international clients that wants to expand its business to Islamic markets.
