Beauty with a best before date
L’Occitane Ma Crème Nature is an organic moisturiser which you buy in its unmade form. Consumers mix spring water with a sachet of organic plant oils as and when they need it. A ‘made on’ and ‘best before’ label can be stuck on the made-up moisturiser before keeping it in the fridge.
Why it matters
Consumers are increasingly looking for products that have high natural credentials, especially when it comes to products that they put on their skin. How can other health and beauty brands push the boundaries of freshness that we see in the food and drinks market?

A Spanish beauty centre have created the Skinlogic app, a tool to see how plastic surgery corrections would look before going under the knife. Users simply take a photo and select the effect they want to see on their face; improved skin texture, face wrinkles eliminated, increased lip volume etc. After the selection, the app will show the user’s new face and the image is ready to be shared on social media.
