Beauty Product Pairing Apps

The CosScan App Assesses the Compatibility of Skin & Beauty Products

— July 28, 2015 — Fashion
The CosScan app allows users to build personal profiles that will asses skin types and advise users on which skincare products to purchase. While there are many skincare products on the market today, varying skin types can make the act of finding the right product for one's skin a daunting task. The CosScan app makes this process easier by creating a filtration system that tells users which products to avoid and which to purchase.

This app is helpful for those with sensitive skin and those who are seeking guidance without having to plan an elaborate trip to a dermatologist's office. The app works by creating a personalized profile and scanning a skincare product's labeled ingredients. Based on the user's skin type, the CosScan will determine if the product is compatible with the user's skin.

The app can be used on any smartphone, which will ultimately save consumers time and money on costly dermatology appointments or on products that are not compatible with their skin type.
Trend Themes
1. Personalized Beauty Apps - There is an opportunity to develop personalized beauty apps that match users with compatible skincare and makeup products based on their unique skin type and preferences.
2. Ingredient Scanning Technology - The development of ingredient scanning technology allows apps to help users quickly identify and avoid ingredients that are not compatible with their skin type or that they are allergic to.
3. Data-driven Skincare - The use of data-driven technology in skincare allows for personalized recommendations and takes into account a user's skin concerns, environment, and lifestyle to create a skincare routine that perfectly suits them.
Industry Implications
1. Beauty Tech - The beauty tech industry can develop more apps and tools that help users find personalized skincare and makeup products that work for their unique skin type and preferences.
2. Healthcare - The healthcare industry can utilize ingredient scanning technology to quickly identify potentially harmful ingredients in skincare products for patients with sensitive skin or allergies.
3. Retail - Retailers can use data-driven skincare to provide personalized recommendations to customers and improve their shopping experience by providing customized solutions for their skincare needs.
