Through its "L'Oréal for the Future" commitment, L'Oréal is leading an in-depth transformation to reduce its impacts throughout its value chain, in particular by reinventing the way it designs and manufactures its products, with sustainability as a fundamental requirement.
As a long-standing partner of Ceebios and Biomim'expo, L'Oréal has made bio-inspiration one of its strategic research objectives through the "Greensciences" transition programme.
The development of bio-inspired technologies is therefore at the heart of the eco-design of its products through a scientific approach, a collaborative and multidisciplinary philosophy.
The study of plant species and natural ecosystems is a model of innovation, resilience and performance for the group's research. It is a source of creativity, research and commitment to the preservation and regeneration of resources.
