Our history

Miyoshi is an industrial group of Japanese origin with operations in Japan, the United States, Europe and China. Since 1979, the company has remained in the Miyoshi family, while maintaining the strong values that have made it internationally renowned today. Established in Europe since 2003, our Group now offers the best cosmetic raw materials to the largest companies in the sector.

Miyoshi, creator of innovative solutions since 1979


Miyoshi Kasei Limited was founded in 1979 by Ryota Miyoshi, a Japanese chemist and entrepreneur.
The adventure began when Ryota Miyoshi realised the difficulties in formulating powders in the cosmetics industry. After several developments, the first cosmetic surface treatment was born.

As a result, Miyoshi became a pioneer in this technology which is now a must, and can be used on many mineral materials (titanium, iron oxide, mica, sericite, talc, etc.)

Since its creation, the Group has been determined to identify the problems faced by formulators and to provide solutions adapted to their needs.
Today, this is why our teams are in the field, to facilitate and improve the daily lives of companies in the cosmetics industry.

A family-owned business


To date, Miyoshi remains a family-owned business, as the Group is still owned by Taizo Miyoshi, Ryota Miyoshi’s son.
This family and entrepreneurial spirit is still present in the group’s dynamics, and is represented internationally by its entities in the United States (Miyoshi America, Inc. created in 1984 in Connecticut), in France (Miyoshi Europe SAS created in 2003 in Lyon) and in China (Miyoshi Suzhou, CO., Ltd. created in 2011 in Suzhou).

“A person who is ethical and who is sincere and loyal to others and to society is a wonderful person. That has nothing to do with wealth, education or family background”.
These ideas are reflected in our company’s philosophy, “Good Faith and dignity”.

Today, our mission at Miyoshi is to develop, produce and sell the best of our technology, to the largest groups in the cosmetics industry.
