L'Oreal to develop 3D-printing skin

French cosmetics giant L’Oreal is partnering partnering with bio-printing startup Organovo to develop a way to 3D print living, breathing skin to test products on.

"Our partnership will not only bring about new advanced in vitro methods for evaluating product safety and performance, but the potential for where this new field of technology and research can take us is boundless", the Paris company said.

Explained the advantage of printing skin, L’Oreal said they create an environment that's as close as possible to being inside someone's body.

"Organovo has broken new ground with 3D bioprinting, an area that complements L'Oreal's pioneering work in the research and application of reconstructed skin for the past 30 years," said Guive Balooch, vice president of L'Oreal's Technology Incubator, told Bloomberg.
