My Skin Track is a soft wearable that can analyze a person's epidural pH via perspiration and suggest subsidiary La Roche-Posay's products to prevent further skin irritation

CES 2019 was full of innovative wearables that take various readings to promote better health and wellness for wearers. One of those was My Skin Track pH from L'Oreal, which, while it may look like a simple device, could change how people monitor and take care of their skin.

Made in collaboration with Epicore Biosystems, the My Skin Track pH is a patch that analyzes a person's sweat to measure their pH. Using microfluidic technology, the wearable can deliver an accurate reading in 15 minutes, and through the integrated app, can read the results through a camera sensor. From there, the app will recommend a La Roche-Posay (L'Oréal's skincare brand) product to help correct any imbalance that could lead to skin responses like dryness, eczema and atopic dermatitis.

The wearable will be available at select La Roche-Posay dermatologists in the United States as it continues to test and research the project further before releasing a consumer version.
