The 2018 Global Bio Conference is billed as the largest international biomedicine event in Korea; it attracts experts from the government, industry and academic fields. Various sessions and programs have been prepared for this year’s ‘People-centered Bioeconomy’ theme.
Laneige and Iope, two of Amorepacific’s leading premium brands, will be offering bespoke beauty experiences to visitors. The makeup showcase from Laneige—called My Two Tone Lip Bar—offers personalized lip color recommendations through real-time skin tone evaluations. From Iope, a skin care showcase offers skin analysis services by experts from the Iope Lab, followed by the on-site creation of custom face masks and serums. The tailored serum targets various skin concerns including rough skin, wrinkles and elasticity by custom blending the ingredients on-site using IoT technology that analyzes skin type and concerns; the mask creates a bespoke face mask for each user based on a 3D facial image using a 3D printer. Amorepacific’s 3D printed face masks are made possible through its technological partnership with Lincsolution Co., Ltd., a startup specializing in 3D printing.
