Kikuboshi has a reputation for high-quality products and boasts numerous brand products that are top sellers in the hair salon industry in the Japanese market.
In recognition of the quality we bring to our products, Kikuboshi has also received several international awards.
Investment to date has been focused on research and development and we plan to continue to deliver innovative products in the years to come.
Our primary sales channels are hair salons located across Japan, delivering products and information to 200,000 salons, accounting for approximately 70% of the hair salons in Japan via 1,000 distributors.
While Kikuboshi started out as a manufacturer of products for professionals made exclusively for salon use, over our long history we have come to handle products from a large number of manufacturers involved in the beauty industry.
We deal with approximately 250 manufacturers in Japan and have approximately 3,000 varieties of products in our distribution centers at any one time.
This makes us an extremely unique organization that functions not only as a manufacturer, but also doubles as a trading company specializing in beauty products.
