“With the pipeline of technologies that we’re working on…the first brands that work with us will really be able to take advantage of the ongoing measurement, diagnostics, and next-generation skin care [tech] that we’re bringing to market,” Wilma McDaniel, Cutitronics commercial director tells Cosmetics Design editor Deanna Utroske.
While the company is still months away from formally launching a device, they had a lot of tech and information to share with in-cosmetics Global attendees.
“So essentially we are bringing together a suit of technologies,” explains McDaniel. “Here at in-cosmetics,” she says, “we’re previewing [what is] really the cornerstone of our technology, which is around skin measurement (the ubiquitous parameter of skin health, which is hydration) and then dispensing the topical and monitoring the behavior and effect that that topical has with the individual consumer…”
Cutitronics is not just another selfie-analysis tool. It’s a device and software (customized for a given brand, product, or routine) that the consumer will use in their own home. And the data gathered will not only benefit the consumer but also the brand, the manufacturer, and the ingredient maker behind the skin care. Indeed, as you’ve read here on Cosmetics Design, Croda has already invested—twice—in Cutitroinics.
