Science and beauty are the two pillars of the L'Oréal Group's expertise. The Foundation relies on its assets to develop activities to help vulnerable people or those who are discriminated against all over the world. Its programs center on two major causes.

Accessible science


With its program "For Women in Science", which has been running since 1998 in partnership with Unesco in 106 countries, the Foundation promotes the role of women in scientific research and encourages them to choose these vocations. It is also committed to promoting scientific education by supporting major exhibitions or joint ventures.

Generous beauty


In its commitment to generous beauty, the Foundation develops activities which, by enhancing personal appearance, help people achieve the physical, psychological or social integrity required to recreate themselves. It also allows others to follow a path that will take them towards professional training in beauty-related fields.
