We at Suzuki Herb Laboratory support SDGs and aim to do all we can now to achieve them.

They maybe only small steps, but we endeavor to do what we can now for a bright future

Passing on acts of kindness to the future

As a company that makes skin-care products benefitting from the blessings of nature, we at Suzuki Herb Laboratory take part in preserving the global environmental by donating a part of our profits toward nature conservation activities. In doing so, we hope to pass on wholesome environmental resources onto the next generation. We take part in various activities so that we can be a company that cherishes connections with people.

The 17 Goals
What are SDGs?

SDGs (Sustainable Developmental Goals), also known as the Global Goals, are 17 goals and 169 targets that were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.



Goal 15: Life on Land

Environmental education

In order to convey the importance of the global environment, we started the ‘Furano Nature Program’ in 2011. The program which is attended by locals and students as well as people affiliated with government and schools, allows one to experience environmental nature education.
*The Program received the ‘ “Eco-friendly Company Award” in the Environmental Partnership Category’ from the prefecture of Ibaraki in 2016.

Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth

Employment support for the disabled

We support a local NPO, ‘Matsubokkuri (reserved), employment support for the disabled; Waakuru-Hope’, to stand by people with disabilities who are working proactively in their workplaces. Matsubokkuri’s devotion in helping those with disabilities in the workplace is a true example we wish to follow.

Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production

Contribution to preserving regional resources

Pineapple extract contains fruit enzymes that smoothens bumpy and rough skin that often appears on the back and over arms. Our Pineapple and Soy Milk Series contain ingredients derived from traceable pineapples produced by contract farmers, enabling us to help preserve and effectively utilize plant resources in Thailand where the fruit is manufactured.



The use of simple and recyclable packaging

We are committed to being ECO-friendly, and send the Pineapple and Soy Milk Series products to our customers without a box whenever possible. The bottles, tubes and exterior film are made from 100% recyclable material.

We do not use UV absorbing agents that pollute the ocean environment

We use UV diffusing agents that reflect UV rays. Since they do not absorb UV rays, the quality of the Cream is preserved and is not easily smudged on the skin. In comparison to UV absorbing agents, some issues remain such as the spreadability on the skin and the powdery finish, but out of concern toward the environment, we continue to use UV diffusing agents.

Typical features of UV absorbing agents
・Cannot prevent all UV rays
・Causes the product to easily smudge on the skin
・Spreads well on skin, non-powdery finish

Typical features of UV diffusing agents
・Can reflect both UVA and UVB rays
・Prevents the products from smudging
・Doesn’t spread well on the skin and has a slightly powdery finish



We use raw materials from manufacturers that contribute to the local area

Neem leaf extract helps prevent skin inflammation and brightens the skin. This ingredient is supplied by manufacturers that contribute to local regions through tree-planting and returning its profits to the regions.



Goal 3: Good Health and Well-being

Creating a comfortable work environment for all

We endeavor to create a comfortable work environment for all employees by encouraging them to take full advantage of paid leave and/or parental leave, and by actively promoting women in managerial positions, and willingly hiring active seniors. We have been awarded the ‘Encouragement Prize for company providing support in both workplace and child-care’ from Ibaraki prefecture and have been accredited as a ‘gender-equality promoting workplace’ by Tōkai-mura.



Raising awareness about the potentials of herbs

As a company that makes skins products benefitting from the blessings of nature, we share with and educate people the potential of herbs. As a firm rooted in Ibaraki prefecture, we are often invited by health centers or the Lifelong Learning Division to speak at lectures.
