PARIS — L’Oreal took its beauty innovations to Viva Technology, the international summit that brings together leaders in digital transformation and innovation, in mid-June to highlight the work being done at the L’Oréal Research and Innovation technology incubator to bring high-tech solutions to the beauty industry.
 
Global VP technology incubator Guive Balooch was on hand to speak about some of the projects being undertaken at the incubator that are at the intersection of beauty and technology. Among the innovations being explored is Le Teint Particulier, developed for the Lancôme brand, which scans a customer’s skin tone to create the perfect foundation shade at the point of sale.

AMITYVILLE, N.Y. — Sundial Brands’ SheaMoisture recently announced the introduction of its 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration collection. The collection is designed for daily use for all types and textures of hair, the company said.

The products in the collection are made with extra virgin coconut and shea oils, as well as creamy coconut milk and acacia senegal. It contains daily hydration shampoo, conditioner, leave-in conditioner, finishing oil serum, face milk cleanser, daily face lotion, overnight face oil, milk mask, body wash, body lotion, body oil and bar soap. It also contains a coconut oil coffee scrub and 100% virgin coconut oil. The products retail for between $5.99 and $14.99.

Sundial Brands said the new collection is part of SheaMoisture’s Community Commerce business model, with shea butter sourced from 14 women-led co-ops and coconut oil sourced from a small community in Ghana’s Half Assini. SheaMoisture said 10% of the sales of the collection will support women’s entrepreneurship, equity and education.

The collection is free of mineral oil, parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol, sulfates and animal testing, the company said. It is available at CVS Pharmacy stores.

SLIDESHOW: Highlights from the CVS Health, DSN and Mack Elevation Health Innovation Summit

BY DSN STAFF

CVS Health, in partnership with Drug Store News and Mack Elevation, last month hosted the Health Innovation Summit in Providence, R.I. Bringing together leaders from such major healthcare, technology and consumer brands as Facebook, Under Armour, Google, IBM and many others, the one-day thought leadership conference examined emerging trends helping to reshape the healthcare industry.

“We are seeing a strong customer movement from ‘sick care’ to ‘self-care’ in consumer health care, which signals a shift toward preventive health and proactive wellness versus acute care or treatment,” noted event co-host George Coleman, CVS Pharmacy VP of merchandising.

The complete report from the Summit will appear in the September issue of Drug Store News.
