POs-Ca is a calcium phosphate oligosaccharide produced from potato starch made in Hokkaido, Japan, and is an effective product that matches current market demands for sensitive skin care and post-medical cosmetic care. POs-Ca has been available as a raw material since 2004 and has been used in oral care products (dental chewing gum, etc.) due to its remineralizing function that is effective for early stage tooth decay.
Besides, POs-Ca is a plant material that dissolves well in water and can penetrate the stratum corneum of the skin. It is a safe and reliable functional ingredient that has been used in many skin care cosmetics, toothpaste and hair care products since 2010. To use POs-Ca can compensate for the lack of calcium in damaged skin and improve the barrier function of the stratum corneum. It contributes to the maintenance of healthy skin.

In addition, POs-Ca was newly registered as a cosmetic ingredient by China's National Medical Products Administration (NMPA, formerly CFDA) in December 21, 2020. It is one of the most attracted functional ingredients for cosmetics now.
