Unilever owned brand Pond’s has recently opened a new arm of the Pond’s Institute global research network in Shanghai, a facility dedicated to studying and servicing the beauty needs of Asian women.
The team has been tasked with a single-minded remit: to beautify the skin of women across Asia.
“Pond’s has relocated leading scientists from across the globe to work on top secret projects at the Pond’s Institute Shanghai,” says Dr Sona Pushkar, Head of research at the Pond’s Institute.
The Pond’s Institute Shanghai serves as the Asia link for the Pond’s Institute network. This allows the Shanghai team to work closely with New York and Europe, accessing expertise and research from other markets to support the Asia-specific developments.
The institute will be open to the public for rare special occasions and by invitation only for leading beauty professionals across Asia.
