Technoble Co., Ltd.
After many years of dermatological research, we have finally obtained a patent for the beauty ingredients obtained from the super berry “Murasakibu”, which bears the name of Murasaki Shikibu, the author of The Tale of Genji, and contains abundant polyphenols, mainly for brightening.
Patented functionality that contributes to three skin care approaches: VC sustainability (sustained effect of vitamin C), melanin clean (suppression and decomposition of melanin), and yellow dullness clear (suppression of glycation and carbonylation)
……
Technoble Co., Ltd. (Head office: Kitahorie, Nishi-ku, Osaka; CEO: Shigetoyo Sawaki) has been engaged in the research, development, manufacturing and sales of functional beauty ingredients for over 60 years since its establishment in 1961. We have successfully obtained a patent for the functionality of “Murasakibu (R)”, a beauty ingredient obtained from the super berry “Murasakibu” containing polyphenols, mainly for brightening. Murasakishikibu is a plant named after Murasaki Shikibu, a Heian period writer who wrote The Tale of Genji, the world’s oldest full-length novel written by a woman, which is still loved more than 1,000 years later, because of its elegant purple fruit appearance. We have been conducting dermatological efficacy research on this extract for many years. As a result, Murasakibu(R) has three brightening products named VC Sustainability (sustained effect of vitamin C), Melanin Clean (melanin suppression and decomposition effect), and Yellow Dull Clear (saccharification and carbonylation suppression). We have discovered functionality that enables a skin care approach and have now obtained a patent. Technoble plans to introduce this new patent-filed knowledge to cosmetics companies and contribute to resolving the skin concerns of consumers. Since its establishment in 1961, Technoble Co., Ltd. has been engaged in the research, development, manufacture and sale of functional beauty ingredients for over 60 years. We have been conducting dermatological research on the ingredient “Murasakibu (R)” for many years, and this time we have obtained new skin care data regarding brightening and obtained a patent for the previously discovered functionality.
-Murasaki Shikibu and Murasaki Kibu-
Murasakikibu bears purple fruits that look like glossy jewels in late autumn. It is said that the plant’s name comes from the Heian J era writer Murasaki Shikibu. Speaking of Murasaki Shikibu, she is famous for writing the world’s oldest full-length novel written by a woman, The Tale of Genji, and perhaps the elegant beauty of Murasaki Shikibu reminded her of the beauty of the noble and talented women of the Heian period.
Also, the scientific name of Purple Thumb is “Callicarpa japonica Thumb”, and Callicarpa means “beautiful fruit” in Greek. Furthermore, its English name is “Japanese beauty berry,” and you can see that the purple berry is a plant that truly symbolizes the dignified, intelligent, and graceful beauty of Japanese women.

-Birth of beauty ingredient Murasakibu(R)-
At Technoble, we have been researching the potential of purple violet as a beauty ingredient for many years. Previous research has shown that the purple fruit contains more polyphenols than other berries such as blueberries, dare ware, and strawberries, making it a super berry that can be expected to have high beauty effects.

Based on these research results, Technoble has developed the beauty ingredient “Murasakibu (R)” (Murasakibu (R) is a registered trademark of Technoble) from the fruit of the plant “Murasakibu”. Murasakibu (R) has also been approved for inclusion in quasi-drugs, making it an extremely versatile beauty ingredient that can be used in everything from anti-aging to brightening, cosmetics and quasi-drugs. Masu. Furthermore, it has the ability to protect vitamin C, which is known as a brightening active ingredient in quasi-drugs, from oxidative deterioration. Another feature of the beauty ingredient
“Murasakibu(R)” is that when used in combination with C, it increases the effect of inhibiting melanin synthesis.

-New brightening effect and patent acquisition of Murasakibu(R)- As a result of many years of functional research in order to explore the further skin care effects of the beauty ingredient
“Murasakibu(R)”, we have now discovered the following new brightening effect.
(A) Effect of activating the recycling mechanism of vitamin C (Figure 1) (B) Effect of promoting the decomposition of formed melanin (Figure 2) (C) Effect of suppressing glycation and carbonylation of proteins that cause yellowing (Figure 3)

At Technoble, we were able to obtain patents for the functionality (1) to (3) above, along with the functionality we had previously discovered.
By integrating all of the above evidence, Technoble has constructed the triple brightening approach theory below using “Murasakibu(R)”. (1) VC sustainability: protect and recycle vitamin C to maintain its effects (2) Melanin Clean: Prevents melanin production and promotes decomposition. (3) Clears yellow dullness: Suppresses glycation and carbonylation and improves the yellowness of the skin.

Technoble securely patents the new brightening approach technology and evidence obtained with Murasakibu(R) and introduces it to cosmetics companies as a new technique to solve consumers’ skin concerns. We are planning to do so.
