Thanks to the rapid development of laser and UV applications, light is now widely used for beauty and cosmetics applications.
Main segments are:
- Aesthetic skin treatments, for example, to analyse the effectiveness of a treatment and for the characterization of cosmetic products.
- Photonic colour-measuring instrumentation, ranging from optical microscopy and digital imaging to Raman spectroscopy, to ensure colour consistency of lipstick, and nail varnish, eye shadow, foundation, and hair dyes.
- UV analysers for measuring the protection factor of sunscreens without the need of human volunteers.
- Laser systems for the characterising pulverizations and sprayers.
