A few words about us:
We are on a mission to change radically the personal-care landscape by developing technologies that make a meaningful difference in the lives of our customers. First and foremost, DS Laboratories is a technology company aggressively focused on innovation. We live by the following five principles:
1. Every product that is launched must deliver certain features and benefits that are not available from any competitor. If a product does not meet these criteria, then it is simply abandoned. We will not manufacture a mere variation of something else just to fill up shelf space.
2. We will rigorously test and verify all claims through double-blind clinical studies. If a compound or ingredient has not been verified through such means, then it will not be used in our products. DS Laboratories is one of the very few cosmetic companies that conducts its own in-house double-blind clinical testing with human volunteers.
3. Innovation will always come before economics. Our chemists work on a cost-is-no-object basis to push the envelope of what is possible in technology. We then pass on the cost of the innovation with a reasonable mark-up.
4. Our primary goal is to create technologies and solutions that make a meaningful difference in the lives of our customers. Profits are merely a side-effect of this paradigm.
5. We research exotic materials, then scale them up from research phase to commercialization. Consumers can always count on DS Laboratories to be the first to bring them breakthrough technologies. We will continue to pursue this practice with tremendous agility in all facets from product development to manufacturing.
The above principles serve as the foundation for everything we do. Their pursuit is fueled by relentless passion for the advancement of biotechnology. The results of our efforts are important new therapies that make a real difference.
