The Honest Company

Sr. Director, Research & Innovation and Beauty Product Development

Mallory has a dual role at The Honest Company, as both the head of Research & Innovation and Product Development.  As the leader for Research & Innovation, Mallory leads a team of formulating chemists, creating the infamous ‘No List’ while identifying new technology platforms and finding unique formulating tricks to develop clean products that actually work.  Additionally, in her role as head of Product Development for Honest Beauty, Mallory is at the forefront of trends – including ingredient, format, and application trends.  A self-identified serial innovator, Mallory started her career at a specialty chemical supplier where she invented novel polymers for skin care, sun care, and color cosmetics.  As an R&D leader at Honest, Mallory has married that innovative mindset with her passion for safe, sustainable, and inclusive products.  With a strong focus on skin health, Mallory believes in minimal ingredients, use of ingredients at their active level, and creating products that address a consumer need state.
