Shiseido, the leading Japanese beauty brand, celebrates its 150th anniversary with the launch of a campaign “From life comes beauty”. The campaign has been launched since June 1, conveying the brand’s enduring focus on life as the essence of beauty and its ongoing pursuit of uncovering the mechanisms that connect beauty and life, together with the global launch of three limited-edition products that were realised from the brand’s unique Life Science research.
The three limited-edition products individually symbolize “Heritage,” “Living Innovation,” and “Future,” to signify the brand’s past, present, and future. Their designs use an arabesque motif featured on wrapping paper created in the Taisho era (1912–1926) by Sue Yabe, a member of the design department at that time. Using 3D software, that original design was turned into a three-dimensional form, then photographed from a variety of angles and used to decorate the containers and outer cartons. The designs express the dynamism of life that opens up a new future while harnessing the assets of the past bearing 150 years of history.
SHISEIDO Eudermine Revitalizing Essence 150th Limited Edition
Launched in 1897, Eudermine was formulated using the most advanced Western pharmaceutical technology of the time and marketed as “high-grade lotion,” gaining popularity as “Shiseido’s red water.” Over the years, the formulation was continually improved, until the launch of the current Eudermine Global in 1997 to mark the centenary of Eudermine’s creation.
This limited-edition product features Shiseido’s original arabesque design and prismatic colors that express a bright future, on a reproduction glass bottle based on the original from the time of Eudermine’s launch in 1897. The recyclable glass bottle and outer carton made of FSC-certified paper create a special packaging that is befitting for the 150th anniversary as well as a sustainable and beautiful future.
