For example, our scientists conduct research on the influence of age, pollution, climate and lifestyle on skin, as well as beauty perception. They grow cells to identify new biological pathways and to study the aging process. Makeup chemists in our color labs create new pigment systems and drive breakthroughs in wear. Our scientists have revolutionized research in the cosmetics industry in a wide range of areas including cellular repair, circadian rhythm, and epigenetics for skin.
The future of science in beauty is an exciting frontier for scientists and engineers to explore, as new discoveries, inventions and innovation lead to the next great iconic products. There are so many meaningful opportunities for talented minds to work on stimulating breakthrough science. Right now, Bio-Physics and Material Sciences are rapidly emerging scientific fields for beauty but what is thrilling is that this is ever-changing. If it’s hot in science, it will be hot in beauty.
