Unilever beauty brand, Dermalogica, has filed suit against Target in the California Central District Court, alleging that the mass retailer sold unauthorized products on-line and in several of its California stores last fall.   According to court documents, “Dermalogica goes to great lengths to control the quality of goods bearing the Dermalogica trademark,”and the beauty brand requires its authorized sellers to have “professional skin-care therapists” available for customer service.  Target does not meet these requirements and was asked by Dermalogica to remove those products in 2017, which it allegedly ignored.  Unilever also asserts that severly of the products sold at Target were counterfeit, expired, and/or falsely marketed.

Separately, French-owned beauty corporation, L’Oréal USA Creative LLC, owner of Skinceuticals, has filed suit against Drunk Elephant, alleging that the indie brand has infringed its patent for L-Ascorbic acid, a form of Vitamin C.  The Plaintiff asks the Texas Western District court for damages, claiming that Drunk Elephant’s C-Firma Day Serum replicates the patented Skinceuticals CE Ferulic.  “We believe that the scientific inventions that make our products so innovative are a strategic and competitive advantage and we are committed to protecting our valuable intellectual property,” said a spokeswoman for L’Oreal USA in a statement.

L’ORÉAL OFFERS HIGH-TECH TO CONSUMERS!

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…)
