Developed by L'Oréal's Technology Incubator in partnership with L'Oréal-owned SkinCeuticals, D.O.S.E is a state-of-the-art service engineered to scan and evaluate consumers' unique skin needs and combine active ingredients into a tailor-made, corrective serum.


The D.O.S.E technology is first-of-its-kind because it is able to mix active ingredients on the spot. The ingredients are chosen specifically to target the appearance of skin aging issues, like wrinkles, fine lines, and discoloration. Then, they are combined into a single, personalized serum.

It has a production-quality compounder that operates at 1,200 rotations per minute to mix ingredients precisely, drop by drop. The machine uniquely combines active ingredients that historically were unmixable outside of a factory setting.
More than 250 unique skin types were considered when researching and selecting active ingredients to include in D.O.S.E in order to provide dozens of combinations through over 2,000 algorithms. L'Oréal scientists spent 12 months determining what formulations would be most efficacious based on consumer needs and ensured the technology could dispense the formula accurately.

The D.O.S.E experience begins with a one-on-one skincare professional consultation to discuss which active ingredients will be most appropriate for the patient. The skincare professional completes an assessment on a tablet, which transfers the data to the D.O.S.E machine that mixes and dispenses the customized serum.

A custom label is then printed for each consumer, including an expiration date and a bar code for easy reordering.

"This technology empowers skincare professionals to co-create personalized formulas that address patients' unique skincare needs on the spot, in minutes. We've created a better ecosystem for them to offer enhanced experiences for their patients using technology to address specific skin concerns." Christina Fair, General Manager of SkinCeuticals
