Angfa started business in 1987 as an importer of aging care products, including foreign cosmetics, health foods and pharmaceuticals. In 2001, as its first original product, it worked with AGA clinic doctors to develop MD soap, a shampoo specialized for those clinics’ patients. After winning high praise at the clinics, it went on general sale in 2005 as “SCALP-D Medical Shampoo”. This product, embodying the core needs of the clinic patients, sparked off the hair growth shampoo market in Japan.
Hair restoration is a part of aging care. Now, as a total aging care company, we are working with doctors and experts in every field to develop new anti-aging products and services that incorporate preventative medicine, letting all of you who want to be healthy and youthful forever maintain your ideal self.
