Flawless Colour Matching Based On Science
What is Complexion
Complexion is a convenient, easy to use, spectrophotometer facial scanning wand designed to simplify colour matching of cosmetics to the customers skin tone. It ACCURATELY captures the true colour of the target in all lighting conditions, ensuring a perfect colour match from bright sunlight to indoor lighting.
What are Spectrophotometers
Spectrophotometers measure transmittance and reflectance of light as a function of the wavelength of light. That is, it measures transmittance and reflectance for all colours of light, and shows how the transmittance/reflectance varies as the colour of the light is changed. Unlike with a colorimeter, the range of wavelengths that can be measured with a spectrophotometer extend beyond the visible range into infrared and ultraviolet regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. Multiple measurements may be taken, to ensure that the true colour is recorded.
The CompleXion spectrophotometer will:
- Measure the true colour of the skin by science not guesswork
- Find the closest match to a range of pre-scanned target colours
- Calculate a formulation of colours that will precisely match the skin
- Requires no specialist knowledge, reduces time in selection
Measuring Colour Accurately
The way in which the human eye perceives colour is dependent on the lighting. One might assume that a person’s colour can be measured by simply taking a photograph, however, there are many problems with this approach. The colour of a photograph is highly subjective and very dependent on the ambient lighting conditions. Modern cameras and mobile devices contain sensors that are not the same as the human eye, and often perform post-processing to correct the colour of an image. Unfortunately, these corrections will further distort the colour.
A spectrophotometer measures colour the way that a human eye sees it, by calculating the way in which light is reflected. The measurement is independent of the lighting conditions, ensuring that a formulation always matches the original colour even if the light changes.
The spectrophotometer can detect and quantity the most subtle of differences between different colour shades. This allows a specific colour to be measured, formulated, and then tested to ensure that it is a precise match to the original colour.
