Korean beauty and pharmaceutical company Kolmar Korea announced on Tuesday that it developed the world's first skincare cream printed on high concentration essence. Kolmar Korea signed a strategic partnership with Samyoung Machinery, a company that specializes in manufacturing 3D printers, and engaged in research and development for about two years.
3D printing method is to design the desired shape by stacking the cream precisely with a special nozzle in the high viscosity essence. It can express various shapes and colors with cosmetic ingredients without creating a separate mold, according to the company.
“We will secure productivity and diversity by continued investment and technological alliance,” said an official from Kolmar Korea. “We will apply 3D printing technology in color cosmetics including lipsticks and compact powders.”
