An innovation executive—with stints at Estée Lauder and Dollar Shave Club under his belt—teamed up with an R&D expert to disrupt the beauty innovation model.

Innovation Counter is built on Fadi Mourad’s years as an innovation executive, which gave him insights as to what successful strategies are based on—such as consumer behavior, strategic sourcing, manufacturing expertise and great packaging—as well as the ways innovation strategies could be improved when it comes to time and cost. Mourad sought a technical partner to bring his ideas to fruition.
