We Strive to Be as Diverse as the People We Serve

How we transform beauty

Beauty comes in many shades. Balanda Atis shares the story of her journey to create the perfect match for each one.
L'Oréal chemist Balanda Atis knew there was progress to be made, so she put a team together to answer the question, "Why doesn't makeup match every skin tone?". What they found helped to advance the Beauty for All mission.

"With each baby, a new skin tone is born, and with that 
we know our work is never done"
