ABOUT COSMOS TECHNICAL CENTER?

COSMOS TECHNICAL CENTER is the R&D Center at the heart of NIKKOL GROUP. Since our establishment in 1970 as NIKKOL Technical Center, we have developed high added value materials and technologies based on market needs. These materials and technologies are widely used in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, detergents, inks, and general industries.

Company name

“Cosmos” most commonly known in Japan as a flower name, is also the Greek origin for the word cosmetics. The other meaning would be the universe seen as “a complete system with order and harmony”.

Based on this harmony concept, we aspire to be the one stop solution provider for cosmetics research and development.
