Artificial intelligence (AI)-based beauty start-up lululab is set to introduce its AI skincare assistant at Beautyworld Middle East expo in Dubai.

lululab is a spin-off company of C-Lab, Samsung Electronics’ in-house venture programme.

The AI-based skincare assistant LUMINI offers a three-step service including face scanning, skin analysis, and product recommendation.

LUMINI features a small device that scans the face of the user and a mobile application which shows the analysis results to the user and suggests tailored solutions.

It scans the condition of skin within ten seconds and then suggests cosmetic products that suit the individual’s skincare requirements.

lululab CEO Yongjoon Choe said: “By applying the LUMINI to the global beauty industry, we hope to offer customers who visit makeup stores, shopping malls, spas, and other beauty-related facilities accurate skin analyses and individually-tailored services that can be used anytime, anyplace.

“Today’s consumers are smart; they do their research online and they are the final decision makers. We give them the digital tool to strengthen their confidence and ease their final decision on what products to buy.

“Through continued collaborations with beauty companies and companies representing diverse sectors, including distribution and IT, we hope to provide individualised IT services that can be easily used by as many people as possible.”
