L’Oréal will unveil its latest technological advancement, a personalized skincare service called CUSTOM D.O.S.E (D.O.S.E). Developed by L’Oréal’s Technology Incubator in partnership with L’Oréal-owned SkinCeuticals, D.O.S.E is a state-of-the-art service engineered to scan and evaluate consumers’ unique skin needs and combine active ingredients into a tailor-made, corrective serum. The D.O.S.E experience begins with a one-on-one skincare professional consultation to discuss which active ingredients will be most appropriate for the patient. The skincare professional completes an assessment on a tablet, which transfers the data to the D.O.S.E machine that mixes and dispenses the customized serum. A custom label is then printed for each consumer, including an expiration date and a bar code for easy reordering.

The D.O.S.E technology is first-of-its-kind because it is able to mix active ingredients, chosen specifically to target the appearance of skin aging issues, like wrinkles, fine lines, and discoloration, into a single serum. D.O.S.E has a production-quality compounder that operates at 1,200 rotations per minute to mix ingredients precisely, drop by drop. The machine uniquely combines active ingredients that historically were unmixable outside of a factory setting. Through this technology, skincare professionals can administer a single D.O.S.E serum with multiple active ingredients that address the appearance of multiple skin concerns. More than 250 unique skin types were considered when researching and selecting active ingredients to include in D.O.S.E in order to provide dozens of combinations through over 2,000 algorithms. L’Oréal scientists spent 12 months determining what formulations would be most efficacious based on consumer needs and ensured the technology could dispense the formula accurately. (more…)

L’Oréal unveiled two technology products at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show. UV Sense, the first battery-free wearable electronic UV sensor, and a limited-edition of the award-winning My UV Patch, both provide consumers with information about their individual ultraviolet (UV) exposure levels.  Since the launch of My UV Patch in 2016, the brand’s dermatological skincare line, La Roche-Posay, has distributed more than one million patches to consumers in 37 countries free of charge to encourage sun safe behaviors.   UV Sense will be available on a limited basis in the U.S. for the 2018 summer season with a global launch following in 2019.

UV Sense is the first battery-free wearable electronic sensor to measure individual UV exposure and can store up to three months of data. The wearable is less than two millimeters thick, nine millimeters in diameter and designed to be worn for up to two weeks on the thumbnail. The sensor can be reapplied to the nail with additional adhesives, which come in the packaging. By putting this technology on the thumbnail – which receives optimal sunlight – consumers can increase wear time from several days with My UV Patch to several weeks with UV Sense.
