LuluLab, a Samsung beauty AI startup spin-off, to unveil AI skincare solutions designed for the Middle Eastern market
LuluLab, a Samsung beauty AI startup spin-off, is unveiling its AI skincare assistant “LUMINI,” designed for the Middle Eastern market, The launched is scheduled to be announced at Beautyworld Middle East, the largest beauty expo in the Middle East, which will be held in Dubai from April 15 to 17.
Founded in 2017 , LuluLab is the developer of Lumini, a personalized AI skincare assistant that analyzes the user’s skin and recommends the best products and services for each user. Lumini examines the facial skin based on six categories: wrinkles,pores, acne, sebum, melasma, and redness simply by taking a photo of the face. It also features an intelligent chatbot within the mobile app that logs and analyzes user’s lifestyle. It then combines all relevant data to provide a comprehensive skin analysis along with accurate skincare recommendations.
Lumini is the first brainchild of lululab, the 22nd spin-off company from Samsung Electronics. Lululab is already being recognized in the beauty industry. The company received the Innovation Award at CES 2019 and was named the winner of the skincare category at Cosmoprof Asia 2018.
The LUMINI offers a three-step service (face scanning, skin analysis, and product recommendation) using AI technology independently developed by lululab. It is comprised of a small device that scans the face of the user and a mobile application that shows the user the analysis results and suggests customized solutions. Based on AI technology, it scans and analyzes the condition of a person’s skin within 10 seconds. Using the results of this diagnosis, the LUMINI is then able to recommend the cosmetic products that can best meet the individual’s skincare needs.
LuluLab CEO Yongjoon Choe said, “By applying the LUMINI to the global beauty industry, we hope to offer customers who visit makeup stores, shopping malls, spas, and other beauty-related facilities accurate skin analyses and individually-tailored services that can be used anytime, anyplace.”
Choe further added: “Today’s consumers are smart; they do their research online and they are the final decision makers. We give them the digital tool to strengthen their confidence and ease their final decision on what products to buy. Through continued collaborations with beauty companies and companies representing diverse sectors, including distribution and IT, we hope to provide individualized IT services that can be easily used by as many people as possible.”
