It provides a means of measuring reflected light on the skin to help identify features such as wrinkles, blemishes, and greasy conditions, ultimately providing the ability to provide personalized recommendations for products made pretty. This technology harnesses the beauty trend for increasingly targeted and personalized beauty products, better suited to the individual's specific needs, skin type, and color.

It also follows the trend of beauty technology, with many highly targeted applications, all of which serve to help beauty consumers make choices that are more appropriate for these specific needs. It works by measuring the Bidirectional Scatter Distribution Function (BSDF) of the user's face, determining how different light is reflected or scattered by shiny or translucent surfaces.

The application captures multiple images while illuminating faces from different angles with the screen of a mobile device, then analyzing data from images using AI to create gloss maps, surface roughness and reflectivity for the whole face.

“Reflexion is a breakthrough in the beauty tech market, delivering rich insights on our dermatological make-up. Using the standard camera function on our phones or tablets, Reflexion takes existing hardware components and applies AI to help visualize the secrets of our skin,” said Robin Ferraby, consumer commercial manager at Cambridge Consultants.

#2: Lumini

LUMINI will be shown at IECSC New York. This is a beauty device that scans and analyzes a person's face in less than 10 seconds and uses the analysis results to introduce beauty products that best match the condition of the user's skin.

With this solution and service, Lululab will create a foothold for expanding its solution in the global beauty market.
