Kolmar Korea has become the first cosmetics manufacturer in the world to develop and produce cosmetics using 3D printing technology.

Kolmar Korea has applied 3D printing technology to the development and production of cosmetics for the first time in the world.

The company announced on March 5 that it has developed basic cosmetics by printing cream types on a high concentration essence through a 3D printer. The new cosmetics maximized the moisturizing effect.

The new products are the result of two years of joint research and development by Kolmar Korea and Samyoung Machinery, a 3D printer manufacturer. Kolmar Korea developed a cosmetic composition that can stably maintain the design and color, while Samyoung provided a 3D printing solution to print highly viscous materials precisely.

The new products are characterized by a unique design and stable materials. Although two different types of cosmetics are combined, they can maintain their form and efficacy.

Kolmar Korea plans to offer the 3D printing technology to its customers and commercialize the products it has developed through a brand name.
