LOS ANGELES, Jan. 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Next week at the Consumer Electronics Showcase (CES) in Las Vegas, Neutrogena® will debut sophisticated skin imaging technology that allows consumers to measure what's happening above and below their skin's surface. The Neutrogena Skin360™ app and the accompanying SkinScanner powered by FitSkin™ give users an in depth understanding of their skin's condition and needs, customized advice to address those needs, plus a clear way to track and assess skin's progress over time.

"Shopping for skincare products can be an overwhelming and confusing experience for our consumer because she is uncertain about what her skin really needs," said Sebastien Guillon, Global President of Beauty, Johnson & Johnson Consumer. "Smart and connected technology helps us provide our consumer with personalized analyses and information she needs in real time so she can make decisions that will help her achieve her best skin ever."
To bring this cutting-edge technology out of the dermatologist office and into consumers' hands, Neutrogena collaborated with start-up Fitskin, Inc. on the development of the beauty tool and mobile app. The SkinScanner tool fits over the user's phone, and utilizes precision technology to reveal key metrics of skin health that are invisible to the naked eye. Built with 12 high-powered lights, a 30x magnification lens, and highly-accurate sensors, the SkinScanner captures the size and appearance of pores, the size and depth of fine lines and wrinkles, and measures the skin's moisture levels.
Each time the skin is scanned, the beauty tool feeds the data to the Neutrogena Skin360 app, which leverages Neutrogena's wealth of scientific research and expertise to analyze the results. It then provides the user with her scores for pores, lines and wrinkles, and moisture as well as an overall Skin360 Score that forms the basis of a personalized daily product regimen and overall skincare advice. This score also allows the user to understand how her skin constantly changes over time in order to adjust her skin care in real-time. As more data is analyzed, the app uses machine learning to improve analysis and recommendations, getting more precise and intelligent. The user can also set skin care goals, journal her progress, and benchmark results using crowdsourced data from others using the app.
"Delivering new beauty tech solutions to consumers aligns with our mission to enhance people's lives through technology," said Josh Ghaim, Ph.D., Chief Technology Officer, Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc. "Neutrogena Skin360 and the SkinScanner tool is just one of our experiences shaping everyday health for today and tomorrow."
The Neutrogena Skin360™ app and SkinScanner tool will be available later this year for $49.99, exclusively via Neutrogena.com. Consumers can sign up to be the first to try it by visiting www.skin360app.com.
