SKIN3D, RECONSTRUCTED SKIN... VIRTUALLY 12.19.2007




For years the researchers at L'Oréal have been studying the structure of the skin and have now reconstructed it as a means to enhance understanding. Every step of the way is shared with the scientific community and the world's public through conferences, scientific publications and other media.
With Skin3D, a unique model of the human skin in interactive 3D, L'Oréal Research is pioneering an innovative way of sharing knowledge. But that's enough of the lectures! With Skin3D, the user becomes the experimenter. The 3D model allows the user to examine the skin's different constituents one by one, to look at them from all angles, and to zoom in on the inside of the dermis and epidermis.
The result of this multi-disciplinary work carried out by experts from L'Oréal Research is an easy-to-use model which is light enough to be manipulated over the Internet. Text and images are used to illustrate how to navigate round the three-dimensional space of the model, as well as moving backwards and forwards in time, because you can make the models grow older or even younger!

Skin 3D will continue to evolve as information about melanogenesis, ethnic specificities, sensitive skin or the action of particular active ingredients is gradually incorporated.
