Awarded in the CES 2024 Digital Health category, the ‘Lipcure Beam’ is a groundbreaking beauty tech device that combines lip diagnosis, care, and makeup capabilities in one unit.
The ‘Lipcure Beam’ cap houses a precision sensor capable of diagnosing the condition of the lips. It instantly detects moisture levels and provides diagnostic results when applied to the lips. Separating the cap from the container reveals a makeup tool. Based on the diagnostic results, the brush-like cosmetic applicator emits optimally customized visible light to aid in lip care.
Developed at the Amorepacific R&I Center, a light-responsive material applied to the lips interact with light emitted from the ‘Lipcure Beam’, maximizing the response of riboflavin, a natural vitamin. This reaction strengthens the collagen fibers inside the lips, forming a moisturizing barrier on the surface. With the technology, users can experience the benefits of slowing down the process of lip aging, thereby creating a more youthful appearance.
The device is designed for ease of use, with a size suitable for one-handed operation and portability. It employs a universal color system naturally suited for all races and ages, making it globally accessible. Optimized light operation within the device also conserves battery life. The ‘Lipcure Beam’ incorporates patented technology by Amorepacific.
Byung-Fhy Suh, Head of Amorepacific R&I Center, commented, “We are profoundly honored that Amorepacific’s renowned strengths in skin biotechnology and our dedicated research and development in customer-centric technology have led to us winning our fifth consecutive CES Innovation Award. The R&I Center at Amorepacific will continue to exert extensive efforts, ensuring every customer achieves a satisfying life through their unique beauty and health.”

(Total of 8 Awards Including CES 2024)
– CES 2020: Tailored Facial Mask Pack 3D Printing System
Amorepacific’s innovation was inspired by the limitations of traditional facial masks in accommodating varying facial sizes, feature placement, skin tones, and specific skin imperfections. The Tailored Facial Mask Pack 3D Printing System utilizes an Amorepacific-developed app to capture facial images, measuring the position of eyes, nose, mouth, and the area of the forehead, cheeks, and chin to design a 2D mask blueprint. Based on this information, a hydrogel containing functional ingredients is selected for the skin condition, and a high-speed 3D printer produces a customized mask pack in real time.
