L’Oreal focuses on photonics to enhance colour cosmetics

“What is amazing about this technology is that we are able to create colour through light and not through pigment,” said Patricia Pineau, L’Oreal research director. ”Put basically we are able to use nano science to control the colour effect by layering the compound's structure. Different gaps in the layers and varying numbers of layers can all influence the colour outcome when it is exposed to light.”
