Join us for an exclusive site visit of L’Oréal-SCELSE joint laboratory.

The French Chamber of Commerce in Singapore is delighted to invite you to an exclusive Site visit at L'Oréal-SCELSE joint laboratory.

In September 2021, L’Oréal Research & Innovation (R&I) Singapore and Nanyang Technological University Singapore (NTU) set up joint lab hosted by the Singapore Centre for Environmental Life Sciences Engineering (SCELSE) for deeper exploration of skin and scalp microbiomes. This collaborative L'Oréal-SCELSE Joint Laboratory has researchers from both L'Oréal R&I Singapore and SCELSE working shoulder-to-shoulder within the SCELSE-NTU premises. The primary objective of this laboratory is to dissect the functional role of the microbial community – or microbiome – present on human skin and scalp, with a specific focus on their potential applications in cosmetics and dermatology. The research currently focuses on addressing the role of microbiome in driving different skin/scalp issues and also towards understanding the mechanisms that maintain a healthy skin and scalp.

This partnership between L'Oréal R&I Singapore and NTU signifies a significant step towards advancing scientific research in the field of skincare and cosmetics. NTU's involvement in this collaboration is aligned with its 2025 strategic plan, which aims to bridge the gap between academic knowledge and practical applications that can bring tangible benefits to both the industry and society as a whole.
