L’Oréal and Poietis partner to develop bio-printing of hair

French cosmetics giant L’Oréal and biotech firm Poietis have signed an exclusive research partnership to pursue a new scientific challenge: bio-printing a hair follicle, the small organ that produces hair.

Poietis already uses lasers for bio-printing reproduced skin structures. The laser-assisted bio-printing technology developed by Poietis to produce biological tissue can position cells in 3D with extremely high cellular resolution (on the order of ten microns) and cellular viability (over 95%). This unique bio-printing technology involves successively layering micro-drops of bio-inks using a quick scan by a laser beam. The living biological tissue created must then be matured for around 3 weeks before it can be used in tests.

According to L’Oréal and Poietis, this exclusive technology could make it possible to create a functional follicle capable of producing hair thus leading to new advances in hair knowledge and enabling the development of exclusive efficacy testing on bio-printed hair samples.

In May, it was reported by The New York Times that the show would no longer be broadcast on network television. “We must evolve and change to grow. With that in mind, we have decided to re-think the traditional Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show". From 2001 to 2018, (...)
