3D printed skin could become the standard for cosmetics testing
We’re constantly looking for innovative ways to improve the Springwise experience, and so we’re now introducing BeeLine Reader, a new technology that helps you read more quickly and efficiently. To learn more about BeeLine Reader, an award-winning startup funded by Intel Capital, see BeeLineReader.com.
French cosmetics brand L’Oreal produces 100,000 skin samples a year on which to test its products. Currently, the brand grows and analyzes skin samples donated by plastic surgery patients, and carefully cultivates nine skin varieties, but the process is reliant upon sixty scientists managing an incredibly precarious environment. Now, L’Oreal have teamed up with bioprinting startup Organovo to begin introducing 3D printing technology into the process. That automation would enable them to dramatically speed up the one week growth time.
