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, Hisamitsu 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.
