The beginning of the epoch was that the child was diagnosed with atopia and was told by a dermatologist that "it needs UV protection."
It started with just one 90cm size, windbreaker made from UV cut material.
"After 18 years"
Epocal now has hats, outerwear, swimwear, and schoolwear with the primary purpose of preventing UV rays.
We have 500 original products from babies to adults.
2018 Epochal staff will go overseas = Australia!
The country with the highest incidence of skin cancer in the world, and Australia, which is a major UV protection country.
We have been certified by the Australian government inspection agency as a company with Japan's first UV protection products.
We also experienced the sun care, which is a UV care program, a visit to a public school, and an interview with a bank council.
"Inspection / Research"
The aim of Epocal is to be proved to be the world's highest quality UV protection wear.
In the future, I would like to move the head office to RIKEN Incubation Plaza and carry out inspection research.
"Brands with originality"
We will seriously consider measures against ultraviolet rays and continue to plan and produce clothing and goods that are typical of the Epocal brand.
WHO WE ARE
Our company was established in 2002 started from 2 stay-home moms. Now we have around 10 employees including parttimer (4 full timer ) sill a very small enterprise. We produce Japan’s only brand “EPOCHAL” (which makes UV protected wear).
EPOCHAL is the brand which produces UV care clothing to protect all kinds of skin damage caused in summer time and UV from babies to all the adults that we care about.
All of that started from my son had much skin trouble when we was baby and his skin doctor recommended us to do something of UV protection.
In recent days, we produces over 500 products focus on not only for UV productional function but also for protect from mosquito bite, heat rush and heatstroke. Especially, since we have very tough summer time in Japan with very high humidity, we set our challenge to produce better quality and high functional wears for all the moms that having hard time spending summer time in outside with their kids
We strongly wish to share our feelings with all the moms in the United States to care for the children by producing our UV protection wear of EPOCHAL. We also want to let all the parents to know how important it is to and its’s basic idea of “prevent UV rays” just like brushing teeth for your daily routine.
Speaking of UV protection, it is popular to use sunscreen cream on your skin, but we must be aware of environmental damage to the ocean. We are hoping to wider market of UV protection clothing rather using sunscreen cream.
