SKINTUITION: Visualizing the skin’s secrets

Multispectral imaging technology developed by Cambridge Consultants is unlocking the ability to analyze and understand the secrets of our skin.

Seeing things differently

Did you know that bees can see in ultraviolet? It helps them hone in on flowers. Humans, on the other hand, see the world in red, green and blue. Normal digital cameras use the same principle that we do. But if we look at the world using different colors, we can reveal details that remain invisible to the naked eye. Skintuition – the multispectral imaging platform developed by Cambridge Consultants – offers a non-invasive, non-contact way of seeing everything from our pulse to hidden damage caused by the sun.

From monitoring for deeper changes in health to matching the perfect shade of foundation to your skin, the multispectral imaging developed provides countless ways to personalize the skincare experience Ruth Thomson Head of consumer product development at Cambridge Consultants

Accomplishing our mission

Using a low-cost camera like the ones in most smartphones – aided by a ring of LEDs – Skintuition controls the illumination to produce images of the skin’s surface with more colors than a typical camera could produce. The system is able to expose what is under the skin’s surface, including blood, oxygen saturation and melanin. By embedding the platform into a commercial product like a bathroom mirror, Skintuition can gather images of the user’s skin and alert them to changes in its condition via their smartphone.
