Eighty-five percent of women from their 20s to their 50s have skin concerns, such as spots and freckles. To cover these up, heavy application of conventional makeup might be needed, and sometimes the colors on the market just don't match people's skin. Even when makeup is perfectly applied, it can be a time-consuming daily routine.

Panasonic's idea was to solve all of these problems by developing custom-made concealing makeup sheets that can be simply applied to the face in a single step. Sensors in the special mirror detect skin condition as well as color. A concealer layer and foundation layer are formulated, and these layers are printed on top of each other as custom makeup on a thin film sheet. Then, all you have to do is apply it with water.

The Make-up Sheet was first showcased at a business expo in 2016. Among the feedback, what was surprising was the number of comments from those with concerns related to cosmetic dermatology. It showed many people are troubled by birthmarks, skin discoloration, and spots that they have had since birth, for which Panasonic's approach could provide an effective solution.

Integration of various technologies becomes necessary to realize the Make-up Sheet: image processing technology, material chemistry technology, and ink-jet printing technology. Panasonic's specialists in each of these fields have been working together, combining their experience and know-how.

Applications for the Make-up Sheet are not limited to the realm of beauty. Panasonic looks forward to seeing this product deployed in the field of medical cosmetics to cover bruises, scars, and other skin problems.

We hope to continue our research to support our customers in gaining more confidence and feeling more beautiful.
