Uncountable to Boost Beiersdorf Product Development Through Cutting-Edge Technology

September 28, 2022
After several years of pilot and validation efforts across different teams, Beiersdorf and
Uncountable have established a long-term partnership in AI-assisted product
development.

Beiersdorf, a global company renowned for its skin care brands like NIVEA, Eucerin,
Hansaplast, Coppertone, or La Prairie, constantly strives to deliver better, more
sustainable skin care products even faster to consumers. Over the past three years, the
two companies have worked closely on numerous high priority and high complexity
product development efforts. Employing the Uncountable AI-technology, Beiersdorf
scientists found that they spend much less time looking for high-quality data and can
focus on analyzing and learning from their data. Modeling formulations on the
Uncountable platform, e.g. resulted in shortened development times.

“Uncountable has been a highly valuable partner for us in the development of our
predictive formulation capabilities”, said Thomas Schornstein, Lab Manager Future Lab
Applied Digitalization. “What has made the partnership remarkably successful is that our
formulators are treating this digital tool like a seamless extension of their own expertise,
allowing them to build on their own knowledge rather than competing with a generic
digital model. We are looking forward to growing our partnership with Uncountable the
next years.”
