Despite dropping one place to third, L’Oréal has been a prolific innovator over the past few years. From being one of the first to offer a fragrance transparency pledge, investing in tech start-ups in Africa, announcing a new marketing standard, launching a start-up focused corporate venture capital fund, a wearable microfluidic sensor, and new partnerships – the company is seemingly intent on continuously boosting its brand value.
