What is Perfect Cover Foundation?

Perfect Cover is a foundation designed for people with skin concerns.
It accommodates various skin issues appropriately according to the type of concerns.

Perfect Cover Foundation

The secret of light technology

Applying a thick layer of foundation does not create a skin with natural feel.
Therefore, we developed a technology that takes advantage of light properties.

For example, when you shine green light on red light, which have totally opposite light properties, the colors cancel out and the red part disappears.
In the same way, when blue light is combined with yellow light having opposite properties, the blue part appears cancelled out. (Fig. 1)

Colors related in such a way are called “complementary colors” (Fig. 2).
This light theory was applied to developing Perfect Cover Foundation.

We perceive colors when the light hits an object, as it is reflected back.

In the case of portwine stains, they appear red because red light is particularly strongly reflected.
Perfect Cover Foundation controls the wavelengths of light, and by only allowing green color, the complementary color of red, to pass through, it makes the redness difficult to see.
In the case of nevus of Ota, it only lets yellow light pass, so the blue part is difficult to see.
