Eugene Science Inc. (OTCBB: EUSI), a leader in the nutraceutical marketplace with its cholesterol lowering CholZero (CZ™) plant sterols, today announced it has retained Early Bird, Inc. (EBI) to market the Company's existing and newly expanded CZ™ plant sterol product lines throughout Japan.

Eugene Science Increases Japanese Distribution, Product Lines; Nihon Pharmaceuticals to Launch CZTM-Enhanced Cosmetic Line

LOS ANGELES, CA | Posted on January 23rd, 2008

EBI has contracted with Nihon Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. to produce and distribute a CZ™ plant sterol enhanced cosmetic product line including skin cream, toothpaste, shampoos and pet goods -- initial launch is slated for first quarter, 2008. Based in Tokyo, Japan, Nihon generates approximately $1.6 billion in annual sales, was founded in 1921 and has about 560 employees. Nihon, through its subsidiaries, will also distribute CZ™ enhanced food products including pre-cooked rice, cooking oil, capsules, tablets, seaweed, dairy products and ice cream.

EBI expects to develop numerous production and distribution agreements with leading Japanese food, beverage and cosmetic manufacturers and distributors for the expanding Eugene Science CZ™ product lines.

The National Institutes of Health reports an estimated 80 percent of Americans currently have some form of periodontal, or gum, disease. Separately, research indicates that topically applied, plant sterols have chemical properties that are ideally suited for treating and preventing periodontal disease -- rendering sterols the preferred, natural additive for toothpaste for humans and animals alike.

Until now, the active ingredients in conventional plant sterols were too large at the molecular level to be effectively absorbed by gum tissue for use in toothpaste, or by human skin for use in moisturizing anti-aging creams, to deliver their healing benefits. Eugene Science's unique, patented nano-technology process for its CZ™ sterols, however, renders sterols into water dispersible, nano-sized particles that can permeate gum tissue and skin dramatically more effectively than conventional sterols to deliver powerful health benefits.

"Japan is the world's most sophisticated marketplace for nutraceutical food, beverage and cosmetic products as consumers are highly aware of nutraceutical benefits," said Seung Kwon Noh, Chief Executive Officer, Eugene Science. "Europe, North America and the rest of Asia look to and track new product introduction in Japan, providing Eugene Science both strategic advantage as well as strong near term revenue upside. Early Bird is off to a strong start with its Nihon agreement and we are confident this success will accelerate throughout 2008 and beyond."
