Abstract:

The application of traditional and contemporary measurement and visualization tools are a part of the arsenal used daily in the personal care and cosmetic industry. They are used to determine information ranging from analytical composition to material distribution in isolation and in contact with a specific substrate and involve state-of-the-art color science, perception and spectroscopic analysis.

In the first part of my talk, I will address how some of these methods can be used to get new information relevant to the needs of the industry.

The specific information gleaned from an individual data set, whatever the functional area of origin (R&D, clinical, manufacturing, marketing, consumer, etc.) is, however, often interpreted in isolation and focused on specific conclusions relevant to the study objectives, with only tacit thought given to the bearing of the information on other areas of the business. This situation is on the cusp of a revolutionary change.

The challenge to the present status quo has come about through the rapid growth of cheap, fast and easy-to-use solid state devices coupled to new computational algorithms that can mine, interrogate and give a predictive analysis of both numerical and textural information when simultaneously applied across a range of disparate data types. The notion that data are a “corporate asset” and not a” by-product” of the specific process is becoming the new mantra. This philosophy sees all data from the laboratory bench to the family home as one large interconnected set and implies that treating it as such can have a profound effect on a company‘s strategic plan and bottom line.

The second part of this talk will give a brief outline of these new approaches from the perspective of the company scientist or manager, rather than the mathematician or data technologist, and will use examples from both the personal care and other industries of how such technology can be appreciated.
