Anti-Aging Co., Ltd.
Established the Pentide Association to jointly develop raw materials with partner companies for Pentide, a cosmetic technology that penetrates the skin and supplies cells
Anti-Aging Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Minami-Aoyama, Minato-ku, Tokyo), which introduced human stem cell culture fluid to Japan in 2012 and continues to provide it as a cosmetic raw material, celebrated its 10th anniversary in August 2022. On the occasion of the 10th anniversary, the company plans to expand the pentide series of penetrating raw materials using cell penetrating peptide: CPP, the technology used in Pentide-C, a penetrating peptide vitamin C derivative that was launched last year. Therefore, we will establish the Pentide Association with partner companies to develop new raw materials and jointly develop raw materials.
Anti-Aging Co., Ltd., a pioneer of human stem cell culture fluid that has been providing cosmetics raw materials for human stem cell culture fluid since 2012, will celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2022 and is engaged in various initiatives. The pillar of the new approach is the protection and penetration of functional ingredients. Pentide-C, which was launched in 2021, is the company’s only raw material that is not a human stem cell culture medium. By binding a cell-penetrating peptide: CPP to vitamin C, vitamin C can be stabilized, penetrated into the skin, and taken up by cells. Therefore, it is a vitamin C derivative with high bioavailability. This “Pentide-C” won the gold medal for technology at the CITE JAPAN 2021 Awards held in 2021. At the end of 2022, the company plans to launch a new raw material using Pentide, a cell-penetrating peptide: CPP-based penetration and cell delivery technology.
The interesting thing about Pentide technology is that it allows ingredients that do not penetrate the skin to penetrate and reach the cells. It was the perfect combination for vitamin C because it could be taken up into the cells instead of just penetrating the skin like liposome and capsule technology. On the other hand, there are not so many cosmetic ingredients that function in cells, considering the origin of cosmetic raw materials so far. Components other than vitamin C, which are well-known components that function inside cells, include CoQ10, glutathione, various amino acids, and B vitamins. Also, of course, the price will be high when using Pentide, so is the raw material competitive in the market? It is very difficult to select ingredients because it is not a technology that simply penetrates. Based on these, Anti-Aging Company will invite companies interested in Pentide and establish the “Pentide Association” to develop raw materials. At the conference, each company brings together materials that they are interested in, discusses whether they can be applied to Pentide, conducts trial production, etc., develops materials after considering functionality and market competitiveness, and discusses at the time of market launch. We will preferentially supply to our partner companies. The council is scheduled to be launched in December 2022 with companies that have already purchased Pentide-C as partners. The partner companies that have been decided so far are as follows. Pentide Council Partner Company
