Skincare gets personal thanks to 3D printing!

Johnson & Johnson, just launched its future tech Neutrogena MaskiD at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2019. Everyone's skin is different and acknowledging this, the Neutrogena MaskiD seeks to make tailor made face masks that are designed to deliver active ingredients exactly where you need them based on your skins needs. After all there is no one size fits all.

The patent pending sheet mask uses digital imaging through 3D cameras, skin analysis and 3D printing technology to help consumers 'achieve their best skin ever'. 3D imaging technology allows for precise facial measurements to be taken, allowing for a perfect mask fit. Data collected from the Neutrogena Skin360 (a 30x magnification lense, LED lighting and a moisture sensor scanning tool) is used to develop the requirements for the peronalised mask. A sheet of hydrogel is laser cut and then has skincare agents 3D printed onto specific parts of the mask.

This is a great use case of how 3D printing can be used to manufacture on demand.
