Digital & RESEARCH


Digital technology strengthens Research and Innovation in two ways. First of all, it makes design and development more agile, thanks to molecule and formula modelling and automated assessment. Secondly, all the data amassed by connected objects and technologies enriches the wealth of knowledge gathered over decades by L’Oréal Research, pushing back the frontiers of innovation and creating more personalised, high-performance products and services.
