Micro-Needle Array

Just apply to the skin; this new way to administer (inject) medicine offers less pain and improved usability

The sheet has an array of microneedles 100 to 2,000 μm long. Polysaccharides are utilized in the projecting structure, and within several minutes after piercing the skin, they dissolve underneath the skin, delivering into the body the medicine packed into the projections. Due to the extreme fineness of the needles, the pain is less than for a standard injection.

Projection length and form can be freely designed

By applying high-precision processing technology developed for photographic film, we have enabled the length and form of the projection to be freely designed. Reliable administration of the medicine is possible.

ASTALIFT JELLY AQUARYSTA

Skin care item containing effective nano-sized ingredients which can be penetrated into the skin efficiently

Fujifilm’s own NANOFOCUS technology is used to achieve stable high-density dispersion and high permeability to the stratum corneum in the delivery of human-type ceramides which have the same structure as the moisturizing component ceramides in the intercellular lipids of the stratum corneum. Use on the skin after facial cleansing and before applying skin lotions helps to maintain skin moisture levels by efficiently penetrating deep into the stratum corneum.

NANOFOCUS technology

With easily crystalized ceramides produced at a minute size (approx. 20 nm) about one-tenth that of conventional ceramide molecules, dispersion is possible without using oils or emulsifiers.

Nano-Astaxanthin Aqua Nano-Sizing DHA

Nanotechnology enables efficient absorption of the active ingredients of health food products

It can be used to micronize the active ingredients of products such as astaxanthin, DHA, and EPA, ingredients which are oil soluble and difficult for the human body to absorb. The self-nanoemulsifying technology increases water solubility, thus making it possible to provide better supplement products in support of everyday good health.

Astaxanthin

Astaxanthin is a red-colored carotenoid which is well-known for its anti-oxidation effect. It gives the red color to seafood such as salmon and shrimp.
