  • Innovations which will help our consumers choose and achieve their perfect cosmetic look.
  • Skin analysis and diagnostics that can help consumers truly understand the unique needs of their skin based on genetic, health, environment, and lifestyle factors.
  • Technologies and services which can simplify the experience of shopping the beauty category, helping consumers navigate our range of products and services to get the right product first time.

Solutions would ideally be at least TRL4, i.e. should be at a stage where we can safely test the solution with a consumer panel.
