Eisai Announces Launch of New "Crystal Veil Mask Bokin 24 Mint" Face Mask Spray
Containing Long-acting Antimicrobial Agent Etak
24-hour Protection from Pollen, Viruses & Bacteria Adhering to Face Masks
Tokyo, Jan 22, 2014 - (JCN Newswire) - Eisai Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Tokyo,
President & CEO: Haruo Naito, "Eisai") announced today that it
will launch Crystal Veil Mask Bokin 24 Mint (classified in Japan as
Miscellaneous Goods), a new face mask spray that contains the long-acting
antimicrobial agent Etak, in Japan on Monday, January 27. Crystal Veil Mask
Bokin 24 Mint offers all of the benefits of its sister product Crystal Veil
Mask Bokin 24, which was launched in Japan in September 2012, combined with an
added mint fragrance for a cool and refreshing experience.
Etak, the main ingredient in the Crystal Veil Mask Bokin 24 series, was
developed by Professor Hiroki Nikawa of the Department of Oral Health
Engineering at Hiroshima University's Graduate School of Biomedical and
Health Sciences and contains both an antimicrobial substance and an adhesive
substance within a single, long-acting agent. By using the adhesive substance
to chemically bind the antimicrobial substance to the surface of sprayed areas,
Etak is able to ensure around-the-clock protection from viruses and bacteria
that adhere to or accumulate on various surfaces when left unchecked.
Furthermore, recent studies have also confirmed the agent's effectiveness
in providing 24-hour protection against pollen. By simply spraying Crystal Veil
Mask Bokin 24 Mint over both sides of the mask, this spray thus provides
24-hour protection from pollen grains that would otherwise adhere to the
mask's surface as viruses and bacteria that similarly cling to and
accumulate on face masks throughout the day.
The launch of new Crystal Veil Mask Bokin 24 Mint is designed to not only help
to keep face masks as germ- and pollen-free as possible but also provide
"minty-fresh" relief during Japan's hard-hitting hay fever
months so that consumers will be able to get the most out of their day with
added ease and comfort. Eisai will continue to deliver a wide range of products
to meet the diverse needs of consumers and the wider public in order to further
contribute to increasing the benefits that its products provide.
