Innovating with purpose: helping people live healthier lives every day, from their very first day.
We’re innovators and creators who push boundaries of what’s possible. Driven by the collective belief that our science needs to keep pace with an ever-evolving world. And that innovation is the key that unlocks it all.
So, we pursue innovation with unmatched ambition. We pair relentless curiosity with scientific rigor. But, most of all, we invest the same compassion and care we provide our loved ones into everything we do. When we get the chemistry right, when we harness the power of data and apply robust and transparent science, we ignite our impact for health and humanity.
We do what we do because we want to change the trajectory of health. We’re here to improve the health of everyone, everywhere—and do it in a way that respects the planet we all call home. That’s our mission, our passion and our greatest responsibility. And it all begins with our team of scientists.

Aveeno® is advancing skincare for cancer patients
Cancer therapy often causes skin-related side effects. So, our scientists at Johnson & Johnson Consumer Health teamed up with oncology experts at our pharmaceutical division to find a solution. The result? A first-of-its-kind study that uncovered how some cancer therapies can damage the skin barrier. The study also found that Aveeno® Restorative Skin Therapy provides “significant” improvement in cancer patients’ skin and itch relief.
