Labskin signs multi-year service agreements for two Top 10 cosmetic companies
Integumen has signed multi-year agreements with two Top 10 global cosmetic companies for recurring LabskinAI services, with initial aggregate low six-figure payments already received.
Under the framework agreements being rolled out, R&D teams in US, Asia and the EU will connect and collaborate with the LabskinAI virtual lab. This will involve testing existing products and new product development on LabskinAI, making full use of our healthy and diseased living skin models, and analysed by the LabskinAI platform.
Gerard Brandon, CEO of Integumen plc, comments:
"We are still only at the beginning with LabskinAI and privileged to be working with these leading household names so quickly. These are data driven engagements and recognise that non animal testing on Labskin human skin equivalents combined with AI deep analytics is the way forward for the skincare industry. Clients can now assess how formulations are reacting on top of and deep into the skin microbiome which will create better, safer, more cost-effective products that meet increasing compliance requirements.
"With the promise of potential contract extensions in the future with existing clients and new contracts in the pipeline, we are excited that our new laboratories in York will soon be coming onstream to meet this growing demand. Even with only two months of the new additional lab space, management are confident that Group revenue will exceed £1m by our year end."
