Beauty's trend-driven legacy has been supercharged in the era of social media. At the same time, brands and launches have proliferated.
The result: it's harder than ever to stand out from the crowd and to keep pace with the latest consumer craze.
Brands that thrive in this dynamic environment will be the ones that pursue genuinely differentiated innovation that delivers real value and aligns with shoppers' shifting needs.
In "Understanding Differentiation vs. Trend-chasing to Create Something that Truly Delivers Value," a presentation led by Lorne Lucree, SVP, global innovation, Tatcha, will discuss the differences between trend-chasing and relevant breakthrough product development with an eye toward more coherent innovation.
This is a must-attend session for marketing, R&D and product innovation teams in an era of maximum competition.
Lucree has spent his career combining a passion for beauty with a constant curiosity to distill consumer insights, developments in technology and active ingredients, packaging innovations, progress in sustainability, olfactive trends, inclusion efforts and the latest formulation techniques into blue-sky ideas that translate into breakthrough, retail-ready products that resonate with a wide range of consumers and retail partners.
His approach to concept development is informed by his professional background, combining:
- a consumer-first approach of marketing from Procter & Gamble;
- the attention to beauty métier from L’Oréal and Estee Lauder;
- an entrepreneurial creative spirit of the world of brand building at Luxury Brand Partners (IGK, R+Co, One/Size by Patrickstarrr);
- a successful ability to partner with founders and celebrity influencers;
- an understanding of working with private equity and venture capital firms;
- and a deep knowledge of operations and supply chain from personal care manufacturing.
Lucree's keen eye for successful concept innovation wins awards that resonate with consumers and press on a global scale. These include: Allure Best of Beauty, Allure Best of Beauty Breakthrough, Refinery 29 Beauty Innovator, Glamour Beauty Award, Times UK Style Beauty Award and Nylon Beauty Hit List.
Currently, Lucree serves as the SVP of innovation at Tatcha, leading the R&D, product development, packaging, regulatory and project management functions. Beyond this, he serves a dual role as the strategic advisor for innovation to the Unilever Prestige portfolio of brands, creating and advising the group on best practices as they relate to breakthrough innovation.
Prior to joining Tatcha, Lucree served as the chief innovation officer at Voyant Beauty, the largest beauty and personal care contract manufacturer in the United States, partnering with mass, masstige and prestige brands to formulate and manufacture skin, body, hair and fragrance products.
Lucree holds an MBA with a focus on marketing, leadership and change management from NYU Stern School of Business and a Bachelor of Science degree with a focus on Women’s Studies from Boston University.
