Happi award is jewel in the crown for NuSkin’s ageLOC Me
November 9th 2016: An innovative skincare system developed by NuSkin in association with Sagentia has been named Anti-Aging Product of the Year by readers of Happi, the leading global media outlet for personal care.
NuSkin’s ageLOC Me pushes the boundaries of skincare to offer intelligent, personalized regimes for the use of powerful anti-aging serums. The system involves around 2,000 possible serum combinations and adapts to users’ individual needs. A central component of ageLOC Me is a customized dispensing device developed by Sagentia. NuSkin engaged Sagentia to develop a product which would be a game-changer in the personal care landscape and reflect the emerging need for increasingly personalized approaches underpinned by smart devices and technology. Just as important was the need for a technically-elegant solution combined with exquisite design.
The touchless dispenser uses an individual’s prescribed serum combination to create a tailored dose morning and night. Sagentia’s selection, as development partner for the device, was rooted in its deep understanding of pump technologies, rheology and cosmetic dispensing.
The project encompassed concept creation and proof of principle through to transfer to manufacture. A range of scientific and technological expertise was involved, including mechanical and software design, tooling and electronic engineering.
“A breakthrough product like ageLOC Me requires extensive and collaborative research and development across multiple technologies and sectors,” says Iain Ansell, Managing Director at Sagentia. “NuSkin spent around three years developing the system after noting three converging trends relating to the increased use of anti-aging products, beauty devices, and product customization. Everybody involved in the project knew we were onto something truly ground breaking. It is very gratifying to see that consumers have embraced the new system, and we’re proud to have played a part in NuSkin’s success.”
Sagentia has extensive experience in developing high-functionality, beautifully-designed health and beauty products which enhance and personalize the consumer experience. The ageLOC dispenser is the subject of five patents. It was also recognized at The Techies as Most Innovative Product in Retail 2016.
