Japan

Croda Japan was originally formed as a 50:50 partnership of Croda International in 1966, and in 1989 became wholly owned by Croda. One of the pioneering foreign-owned companies to establish its own manufacturing site in Japan, our site in Shiga also developed a process that produces products of extremely high levels of purity, primarily for Personal Care and Health Care. In 2013, it was the second manufacturing site in Japan to be awarded the EFfCI (European Federation for Cosmetic Ingredients) GMP certification and in 2017 was the first in Japan to be awarded the EXCIPACT certificate. Producing a wide range of natural-based specialties from materials such as vegetable oils and lanolins, we also manufacture esters and wax.

The working environment is a good balance of Japanese culture with the dynamism of a global company. Our team enjoys the Croda culture of “safety first, people first”, with employee wellbeing a priority.
