Beauty Research & Innovation

Shaping tomorrow’s Beauty through science

Focus On Research & Innovation

Dive into our constant search for cutting edge scientific discoveries and game-changing technologies, for more and more transparency and trust in our products, with no compromise on quality, efficacy and safety.

Research & Innovation is at the heart of the Group’s strategy

At L’Oréal, there is no innovation without science, and that’s what has made us different since 1909. It was the original gamble that Eugène Schueller took when he created the company.

Every day, more than 4,000 people work in our Research & Innovation centers around the world. They discover, invent and develop, providing a continuously improving response to the Beauty needs and aspirations of consumers, while the products they create are ever more effective, and provide the highest standards of quality and safety.

Our ambition is to go even further:

- By contributing to a more sustainable future, thanks to scientific progress and the complementary nature of our expertise in green chemistry, biology, biotechnology and the eco-design of our formulations.

- By responding to the diversity of needs and aspirations of our customers with beauty that is ever more inclusive and personalized, thanks to the use of data, algorithms and Artificial Intelligence.

By doing this, L’Oréal Research & Innovation is accelerating its drive for continuous progress, helping all the different types of beauty around the world and the consumers of tomorrow.
