NEW product development, RAPID prototyping, INVENTIONS, MARKETING, COSMETOLOGY, and COSMETICS
The article reports that new products are launched so rapidly in the beauty market that cosmetic laboratory technology is relying on bioinformatics and neurological instruments for greater speed and accuracy. But new products require new ingredients, and behind every new ingredient and application to cosmetics, fragrances and personal care products is a researcher testing for the safety and efficacy of the raw materials. As new product development pushes researchers to test hundreds of materials added to the ingredients list and still do their job quickly and accurately, the testing equipment used in the labs have become more sophisticated.
