L'Oréal is rooted in science and innovation. Eugène Schueller created the first-ever hair colouring product "les teintures inoffensives pour cheveux" (safe hair colourants) in 1907. The product was patented upon scientific merits. Since its establishment in 1909, L'Oréal has been pushing back the boundaries of science to invent beauty and meet the aspirations of millions of women and men.
Nowadays, L’Oréal spends 3.5% of its sales in Research & Innovation (R&I). In 2013, L’Oréal invested 7.91 million euro in R&I, filed 611 patents, and worked with more than 100 scientific partners worldwide. In Hong Kong, sponsoring scholarships in scientific research is therefore a natural extension of our support to science.
Partnering with the Hong Kong University-Pasteur Research Pole, and the Consulate General of France in Hong Kong and Macau, L'Oréal Hong Kong aims at providing outstanding postgraduate students with the opportunity of exposure to the research environment in France through participating in research work in laboratories of the Pasteur network, thereby better preparing them for future long-term professional development and careers in scientific research.
