Products Research

Within our R&D organization is a specialty team of experts focused on consumer research. These scientists and engineers leverage their diverse skills to “walk a mile” in our consumers’ shoes, working to deeply understand their needs, hopes, and desires. Their deep technical knowledge enables a high level of scientific rigor, which helps translate these consumer needs into technical objectives. Throughout this process, our researchers engage with experts in product design, development, product supply, manufacturing, technology development, and marketing to ensure they are identifying innovation opportunities and building delightful products that our consumers will love and trust.

"Products Research has been at the heart of P&G innovation for 100 years.
It sets us apart from other companies and enables us to continue raising the bar on innovation to deliver delightful products and experiences."
