Major makeup firm Pola and ANA Holdings on Monday unveiled special skincare products that will be used by Japan's space agency, with these to be the country's first facial cosmetics brought onto the International Space Station in around 2024.

A face wash and a lotion from the Cosmology line devised by Pola and the parent company of All Nippon Airways have been specially designed for use in outer space's low-gravity, resource-scarce conditions.

The two products were both created in response to a call by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) for products that solve issues common to terrestrial and outer space lifestyles.
