Is CES heading in a new direction? Or is it a case of new categories such as beauty and health being created for traditional CE retailers .
In the past CES keynotes were given by the likes of Bill Gates and Microsoft or Google’s Serge Brin, at CES, 2024 the main keynote is set to be presented by L’Oreal who are better known for their cosmetics and their new anti aging technology.
According to the latest brief CES 2024 is set to be run for the first time by Maritz Global Events, with L’Oréal CEO Nicolas Hieronimus delivering the main keynote.
A nine-time CES Innovation Award honouree, L’Oréal’s keynote will demonstrate how the company’s ongoing technology transformation ensures that it remains prepared for a future of its business that is at once physical, digital and virtual.
It was only recently that archrival Revlon announced its return to the market after moving to Chapter 11 earlier in the year.
The move by beauty brands into the technology market, is being seen as an opportunity for the likes of JB Hi Fi, The Good Guys and Harvey Norman to open up new health and beauty categories selling skin health products similar to what L’Oreal manufacture. The Company is also moving to sell technologically advanced shower heads.
New L’Oreal products include wearables for detecting exposure to the sun’s harmful rays and handheld devices that dispense personalized makeup and hair colour at home.
L’Oréal, which has unveiled new consumer technology at CES in the past released its inclusive beauty tech innovation HAPTA at CES 2023.
The world’s first handheld computerized makeup applicator, this motion-stabilizing device assists those who have difficulty raising their arms due to limited mobility issues, people with limited grip strength, and anyone with limited wrist mobility who may find it difficult to get a comfortable angle when applying lipstick or mascara.
“We are thrilled to welcome our first beauty company to the keynote stage to highlight innovation in the beauty tech category,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, Consumer Technology Association. “L’Oréal has a powerful story to tell of its vision for what’s next for beauty, and how technology enables it to meet the needs of its consumers and outperform the beauty industry today and prepare it for the consumer revolutions of the future.”
