About Us

Abe Yoando Pharmaceuticals Logo

Earnest all the way, in business for 1731 years.

Serious all the way,
Founded 1731

Our mission is to solve the challenges of health and aging and maximize people's life value.
Founded nearly 290 years ago, our company's starting point is traditional Japanese therapeutic medicine with its origins in Chinese herbal medicine.
Throughout our history, we have dealt with numerous raw materials that are considered beneficial to mankind, while always incorporating the latest science of the times.

At the core of our value creation is the integration of scientific and technological advances into innovative health and aging care products that are truly beneficial to our customers.

Our product development process begins with the research and development of ingredients derived from natural extracts or chemical syntheses, which are then tested for safety and efficacy and transformed into products. This process can take several years. After all the problems are cleared, only a small percentage of the products are finally delivered to our customers.
We are more than happy if our innovative products, which have overcome so many difficulties, can enhance the life value of our customers, even if only a little.

Corporate Philosophy

benevolence (esp. as a virtue of Confucianism)

Since ancient times, our philosophy has been "Jin," which means "consideration and compassion.
Jin" is especially famous in a passage from the book "Yosei-Kun"
by the Edo period scholar Kaibara Masuken, which explains its meaning as follows: "Medicine is an art of benevolence.

"The principle is to have a heart of benevolence and love, and to save others as one's aspiration.
Do not put your own interests first."


This is our pledge to work with
the heart of "Jin" in the hope that our customers' health, beauty, and prosperity will continue.

Tomotaka Abe

Greetings

We, Abe Yoando Pharmaceuticals, have been in the business of Chinese medicine based on herbal medicine for 290 years.

Since I was a child, I was surrounded by the smells of various herbal medicines and medical herbs.
The aroma of these various herbs and medicinal herbs is like the aroma of spices.
It could be Chinese herbs, Japanese plum paste or suppon, or medicinal herbs from South America, the birthplace of my mother, a pharmacist, and many other things from both the West and the East.

Thanks to our predecessors who discovered what this material is good for and recorded it,
we have the healthy life we have today.
If there are people suffering, I want them to feel as comfortable as possible.
The medical cultures I have seen around the world are filled with such compassion.

Just as parents pray for their children's happiness and children pray for their parents' health, we want to be sincere and compassionate to our customers.
We put such thoughts into the word "Jin," which is a word for high spirituality passed down from generation to generation since ancient times.
We will continue to strive today to make our customers feel excitement and our employees feel pride and happiness.

Please look forward to Abe Yoando Pharmaceutical Co.

Environmental Initiatives

Forest Background

Toward a world full of "health and beauty"
with permanence

Our ability to maximize our own value and create a healthier and more beautiful world will brighten our future and leave a better environment for the next generation.
In addition to providing products and services, we are committed to contributing to the international and local communities in which we operate.

Reforestation activities in Brazilian apiaries

Organic propolis is the highest grade of plant-derived propolis. In order to be the first in the world to start selling organic propolis in 2002, we started with the environmental improvement of organic apiaries in Brazil. Since high-quality medicinal herbs are the source of high-quality propolis, we cooperate with the apiary's medicinal herb planting activities.

Encouragement to keep shelter dogs and cats

Puppies and kittens sold at pet stores are often separated from their mothers at a very young age, so they do not receive enough love and affection, and often grow up sickly and weak because they do not have the immune system provided by their mother's milk. On the other hand, pets abandoned by humans at local shelters are often killed. For this reason, we provide a monthly allowance to employees who foster pets from shelters to help reduce the sale of pets.
