Newtone – Imaging Health and Beauty

The Newtone family of solutions specializes in creating and developing increasingly powerful customized interpretation algorithms and acquisition systems, to help the Cosmetic Industry to innovate, explore and develop new products for all ethnicities all around the world.

To investigate full face skin, Newtone provides an all in one solution, starting with ColorFace, the first full face (no chin and forehead supports) skin acquisition system, under specific lighting modes, easily used in clinical trials. Six lighting modalities for front and profile views (no filter, cross-polarized, parallel-polarized, standard 60 degrees, standard 45 degrees, UV light) and an illustration mode, enabling open-eyed face images.

A specific color calibration process, with a color chart of 48 shades, is performed on all images to ensure the best consistency and reliability of colors on all images. Thus, multiple skin parameters can be evaluated from these high-resolution photographs such as redness, spider veins, color evenness, skin texture, shine, porphyrins, wrinkles, pores, pigmentation, gloss, dark circles, color homogeneity, blackhead, acne, melasma, lips, eyeshadows, and foundation.

Acquired images can also be combined with the visualization of special skin attributes to instantly communicate with consumers to show product efficacy. Based on physical skin measurements, a bio data mapping can be generated for hydration, sebum, acne or redness. For example:

As regards to the image analysis, Newtone’s original approach is to prove product efficacy correlated with human perception, with smart algorithms. Addressing all cosmetics and skincare claims, Newtone is also specialized in inventive approaches of beauty indexes.
