Santen’s values and mission statement


In Japanese, we say:

Our vision text

Which means:
“Exploring the secrets and mechanisms of nature in order to contribute to people’s health”

Santen’s original interpretation of a passage from chapter 22 of Zhongyong (The Doctrine of the Mean) by Confucius.

We think carefully about what is essential, decide clearly what we should do, and act quickly.
