The worlds of beauty and technology come together in a most amazing partnership. L’Oreal has teamed up with a young upstart able to 3D print human skin. Yes, you read that correctly. This is how fast things are moving along! Picture this: a mega conglomerate (L’Oreal) with the name, foundation and money meets a newbie like Organovo (the aforementioned 3D printing company) with a massively innovative service. Each offers something the other needs and wants. It’s a perfect win win situation for all parties. I am thinking of the animals that will be spared from cosmetic testing in the very near future. So dear readers, once again, this is yet another example of our creative industries merging with science and technology to bring us into the future…which is now.
