CEO’s greetings

The founding principle of Raphas is closely connected with the biotechnology researchers' aspirations to transform ideas confined to academic papers or remaining in the lab into practical products.

Traditional methods of delivering drug substances into the human body include orally administered medicines, injections, ointments, and patches.
The 'dissolving microstructure' developed, commercialized and mass produced by Raphas has enhanced the existing drug delivery system, making it not only safer and more convenient but also more efficient in delivery of medicine.

The new drug delivery system developed by Raphas will lead to significant change and enhance convenience in our daily life. It will help many people maintain their youth and beauty by delivering active ingredient more effectively than conventional cosmetics as well as more safely and conveniently than hospital procedures and treatments. (delivering active ingredient)

It can relieve the pain, fear, and discomfort for patients undergoing treatment with injection and provide an efficient and convenient treatment for people suffering from dementia who even forget to take their medicine. Moreover, the patch-type vaccine that Raphas is currently developing does not need refrigeration for storage and distribution and can be used without the help of a specializing doctor and thus can provide a healthy life for children in Africa and other third world countries.

CEO of Raphas Jeong Do-hyeon

For your
healthy journey

Raphas began with just a small laboratory and an idea.
Researchers who had studied biotechnology for many years had a small yet remarkable dream that their knowledge and information would not just remain in the lab but lead to products that actually help humankind.


Their ultimate technology was
to find technologies that would help people to manage
healthy living free from pain.

To realize their dream, they came up with the idea of a microstructure that combined biotechnology with nanotechnology, and then applied semiconductor technology and biotechnology again to mass produce the product. As a result, Raphas was able to commercialize the world’s first new drug delivery system.

Injection, oral administration, ointments, and patches are all traditional means of delivering drug treatments. Although injection is widely used as the most efficient means of drug delivery, it causes pain and requires specialized medical staff, leading to high cost as well as generating medical waste. In the case of orally administered drugs, certain ingredients that are decomposed by the digestive system are difficult to use and are limited in terms of effective delivery because people's ability to absorb drugs varies considerably. In the case of bio drugs derived from raw vegetables, in particular, it is difficult to absorb them through oral administration.

Drug delivery through the skin, despite numerous studies over the years, has not overcome difficulties of the skin barrier, and only some specific drugs have been studied. Most cosmetics currently are applied to the skin, but few active ingredients penetrate and are effective due to the skin barrier.

Raphas has solved these problems and created a drug delivery system that anyone can take drugs painlessly, conveniently, and safely without help by others.
