Homemade cosmetics are having a moment! Rather neglected in recent years, they are back in the spotlight, followed by a growing demand for naturalness, transparency and personalized products. But the art of creating cosmetic treatments remains delicate. Manon has turned her attentions to the issue. How can we easily and safely create handmade cosmetics?
Cosmose is a connected in-store coaching experience. Three ingredient distribution modules are connected to a diagnostic interface. The formulas are based on raw ingredients and "neutral" bases. Created to limit the risks of contamination, Cosmose reduces waste and promotes the Do lt Yourself mentality.
" The Cosmose project delivers an object from the cosmetics sector. Based on the same model as bulk products, Cosmose allows the user to choose the formula and the quantity of ingredients needed to create his/her custom product. Refills of various components are associated with an application. When Manon enrolled on a master’s degree course with apprenticeship, she joined Aptar, a company specializing in the dosage of cosmetic products in the highly industrialized sector of mass distribution. The contrast of this universe with the current trend of returning to natural and artisanal production methods, provided Manon with her work focus. Reassuring and accompanying the user are the goals that Manon has chosen. Thanks to a good understanding of user needs and the stakes related to an economic sector, she has developed a relevant object. Designed with strong codes, Cosmose can be adapted to different brand images. It paves the way for those who are looking for new experiences to offer. "
