Our history began with
research and development.

Since our first success in synthesizing basic magnesium carbonate from bittern (a component of seawater) in Japan,
we have been a pioneer in the inorganic chemical industry, mainly in the field of pharmaceuticals.
From a global perspective, we will continue to improve our R&D capabilities as an R&D-oriented company
and make our best efforts to become the one and only global company.

Keeping our management philosophy, “Company Policy,” “Creed,” and “Corporate Mission Statement,” in the hearts of all our employees,
we will continue to contribute to society by providing better products and services that meet the needs of our customers.

  • Food


    We have a wide range of minerals, such as salt, calcium and iron preparations, and others, that comprise basic ingredients for health foods.

  • Cosmetics


    In addition to various minerals, we also offer functional materials such as FLORITE® which is used as a base material for foundations, carrier for fragrances, and a powder stabillizer for liquid active ingredients.

  • Specialty Chemicals

    Specialty Chemicals

    Due to its unique crystalline structure, the multifunctional additive FLORITE® has extraordinary water and oil absorption as well as excellent moldability. We also have a variety of functional materials such as humidity regulators including calcium choride and anhydrous magnesium sulfate.
    Along with these, we would like to highlight BRISKOIL which is used as a refining agent for functional oils and fats, as well as the TOMITA-AD series that chemically removes impurities whether gaseous or liquid.

As a pioneer
in inorganic chemistry

Powdered Dialysate Contributes to the Advancement of Medical Care

Combining the advanced formulation technologies in inorganic chemical synthesis, coating, granulation, and mixing that we have cultivated over 100 years of history, Tomita Pharmaceutical was the first in the world to develop a powder formulation of dialysate for dialysis therapy by coating other electrolyte components around a sodium chloride core.
This has contributed to the expansion of dialysis therapy in Japan, and the powdered dialysate is now used in many hospitals for patients requiring dialysis therapy.
We won’t settle for the current quality of life (QOL) of dialysis patients, but are committed to research and development of dialysis agents and related pharmaceuticals to make further improvements and lift and empower this population.
