Behind the Scenes in Research & Development

Meet Mridula—she works in our R&D skin care lab. In her role, Mridula takes cues from consumers to ensure that the P&G skin care products on the shelves are exactly what they’re looking for. She uses her chemical understanding every day to bring those products to life, tackling challenges head-on with a supportive team behind her who meet regularly to brainstorm and problem-solve together.

“You don’t have to know everything when you start. There are a lot of people willing and able to help you...It’s a great environment to learn on the spot and problem-solve.”
