History of Salonpas
In the century-and-a-half since their founding, Hisamitsu has pioneered the development of transdermal patches and other topical treatments to relieve everyday aches and pains. Their Salonpas product line gained early acceptance in Asia and now sells in 50 countries around the world.
Although their products now enjoy international recognition, they started out as a small, family owned business in Japan. Hisamitsu Pharmaceutical was founded in the mid-19th century under the name of Komatsuya. The company went on to create a large variety of health-related products. Their company has always prided itself on its ability to create new consumer products based on Hisamitsu’s comprehensive research, development, manufacturing, and sales capabilities.
Salonpas brand patches were first introduced in 1934, and their outright efficacy propelled their company to the position of market leadership that they currently hold today. Salonpas was developed through the application of Asahi Mankinko, the prototype therapeutic patch they introduced back in 1903. The original product gained quick acceptance and was considered cutting edge technology in its day. Thanks to sustained research and input from everyday users, their products continue to evolve. Moreover, their company has expanded the culture and use of patch treatment. Hisamitsu continues to develop and refine therapeutic patches that are safe and easy to use.
They believe the fulfillment of their mission is nothing less than an obligation to the global community. It is with that in mind that they work to improve their products and promote new means for people everywhere to apply the many benefits of topical care. Hisamitsu’s goal has always been to advance the benefits of transdermal treatments, especially their pain-relieving effects and the feeling of invigoration they offer. Nowhere is this objective better expressed than in their corporate maxim, “Salonpathy”. This word was derived from Salonpas, one of their key products. Under the banner of Salonpathy, they are actively promoting better health for people around the world, offering a range of pain relieving patches and pharmaceutical products based on the transdermal therapeutic system–the new worldwide standard for drug delivery. As the 21st century begins, they are responding to basic needs that unite people everywhere. Good health, freedom from pain and a lifestyle rich in vitality, is the foundation for all they do at Hisamitsu. Their business strategy is designed to develop new medical products and drugs commensurate with their core competencies in transdermal therapeutics. This is their mission, to make topical care available for all who seek it-anytime, anywhere.
Research & Development
The future of pharmaceutical products is one of unprecedented possibilities. Hisamitsu’s efforts in research and development are focused on TDDS (Transdermal drug delivery systems) products. The poultices, plasters, and ointments applied to the skin have been used for many generations. There are good reasons that this tried and true technology of administering drugs through the surface of the skin for delivery throughout the body is enjoying modern day popularity.
