UNIVERSAL DESIGN AND SUSTAINABILITY
What is beautiful design?
It’s more than just looks.
It’s about usability — regardless of who is using it.
Fun regardless of function. And last but not least, sustainability.
Because the future of the earth is the future of all.
At Shiseido Creative Co, we believe these are the most important aspects of beautiful design, and we apply this thinking to each and every one of our creations.
We strive to make products that can be used by anyone, anywhere — regardless of age, disability or any other other factors. Products that look as beautiful as they feel. Products as usable as they are functional.
We design such products under the theme of Shiseido Universal Beauty Design.
We hold various workshops and study groups to share and enhance our expertise.
Guest lecturers are invited from a range of fields, often from outside the cosmetics and design industries.
Our goal is to develop and nurture knowledge of universal design and sustainability.
We explore not only the beauty of visual design, but ease of use.
We build on our in-house knowledge and creative capabilities by working closely with the Shiseido Global Innovation Center.
From products to store interiors, we design everything with a meticulous attention to detail.
We rigorously test all designs to ensure comfort, usability and much more.
The environmental impact of cosmetics is another important factor that cannot be overlooked in design. We posses a broad knowledge of sustainable materials and refillable solutions. All our efforts are supported by Shiseido’s Global Innovation Center, and we work in close cooperation with factories and suppliers to ensure we have access to and knowledge of the latest sustainability breakthroughs.
We share our knowledge of universal design not only within Shiseido, but also with the outside world. By doing so, we aim to contribute to a more beautiful future. We also pursue collaborative research that transcends industry and corporate boundaries, while striving to win global recognition for our universal design efforts.

The gorgeous gold surface is uneven and serves as a finger hook when the bullet is rolled out. The texture of the lipstick on the finger is also designed with quality in mind.
The rounded shape is reminiscent of a drop of water, and when viewed from above, the oval shape is comfortable in the hand and the cap is easy to open.
