At BRI we believe that only strong research creates cosmetic products capable of generating real results. Research is our primary driver and provides the blueprint for our innovations.
We are challenged with finding the latest in enriching scientific knowledge about skin and hair around the world, with an intent watch for discovering new active ingredients. While a great deal of our research is scientific in nature and drives the innovation of products, another core aspect of our organization is consumer research and discovering which products can best be adapted to consumer needs and expectations around the world.
MJ Morgan, a former professional model, is the Founder, President and Director of Research of The Beauty Research Institute. MJ is a lifelong research scientist and entrepreneur. She has dedicated more than 20 years to creating multi-million dollar enterprises across a variety of industries, including beauty and fashion companies.
The Beauty Research Institute began when founder MJ realized how difficult it is to sort through all of the conflicting information surrounding beauty products. Believing that enhanced beauty should be accessible to all, she began her journey to create a premier institute for the public which cuts through the clutter and clearly presents the latest research in enhanced beauty.
Research is the foundation of the Beauty Research Institute, with three major drivers of innovation: active ingredients, formulation and evaluation.
The Beauty Research Institute was established as an organization committed to examining the science of beauty. For years, the institute has been involved in a broad range of initiatives combining psychology, biology, consumer insights and fashion trends to build a mass knowledge so that we can help people lead healthy and beautiful lives.
The Institute conducts focus groups and consumer research, active in the discovery and development of beauty techniques and products, education, and the delivery of information. Our mission is to give to society and deliver value to customers by sharing the most effective research.
