A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
These two facts lead us to one conclusion: we need personalized skin care, but also to change it when our skin needs are different.
However, laboratories of today create their formulas not for the individuals but for general skin groups. For example: “Antiaging skin care for mature skin”. But, are all mature skins equal? No, they aren’t so it will not work as it should be.
The new generation of personalized skin care that changes with you.
With LESIELLE you will always have the perfect skin care.
Create your own custom skin care at home (choosing your skin type, texture, and treatment) and change its properties whenever you want, or if your skin needs are different.
Environmental and internal factors can modify your skin needs. For example, in winter you may need a more protective and hydrating skin care.
With Lesielle, you can even create a different formula before each application so it will always be adapted to your needs. You will also be able to create special formulas to use them in specific moments.
Here you can see some examples of adaptive use:
Skincare efficacy is defined by the combination of active ingredients and the used amount-percentage of it.
Traditional skin care is limited because actives ingredients have to remain several months together and this limits high concentrations and some combinations because they are not stable for long periods of time. This doesn't happen with Lesielle because each active ingredient is individually conserved. We call this isolated formulation
We designed Lesielle to be simple. We separate moisturization/texture & treatment. In this way, you can select what do you want instead of searching a formula that will be similar to what you need.
This is how you use lesielle:
Now it is already set up!
Important: you don't need to do step 1 and 2 every time! Just do it when you need to create a new combination.
When you create your own skin care using Lesielle you will have exactly what you want. Do you imagine yourself looking through thousands of pre-made generic formulas trying to find some with all that you desire? Imagine doing this process every time you need to change your skin care routine because your needs are different?
This painful process of do not find the perfect combination was what made in 2016, to our Founder and CEO Rubén to think: 'Why can I not simply choose the characteristics I want? Or, even better. What if I could change its properties when I will need it?'
With LESIELLE, you decide the specific characteristics you want.
There are endless combinations. For example, just using 2 bases and 4 actives you can create 30 different skin care products.
We designed Lesielle with 3 requirements in mind: to be simple, hygienic and affordable to everyone. In addition, it should have a reduced size.
Do you like to test different skin cares, and see what it works better with you? With Lesielle you can create differents combinations to see what works better with your skin. Share your favorite creations with your friends and collaborate to design new combinations.
Lesielle is the result of the collaboration of pharmacists, engineers, and designers.
Lesielle's first concept was to create a device that allows each person to create a personalized skin care just selecting the characteristics they need.
We said to ourselves: 'Let’s go further; the device should allow you to do it before each application'.
More than 18 3D models and 5 functional prototypes have been created since then. We have managed to lower the device price through the use of technology and a low advertising strategy.
During the development, we have been continuously testing the prototypes with real clients, in order to improve the device.
As part of our story, here you can see our third prototype some months ago:
Right now we are making changes to improve the efficiency and create more stylized lines.
Doing some tests on our 5th device (white version):
We want you to personalize even the device. For this reason, Lesielle will be available in different colors:
The device is available in white and black. When we reach 30.000€ and 60,000€, we will also be able to produce the device in light pink and grey.
Some device specifications:
All rewards are personalized. After the campaign, we will ask you to choose the color of the device and the actives and bases you prefer.
If you need it, our pharmacist will help you to choose the best combination depending on your skin type, concerns, and needs. But also your texture preferences!
We will make available the refills perks 15 days before the campaign ends. This is to prevent misunderstandings and people supporting us and just selecting refills without the device.
A multidisciplinary, motivated and dedicated team with an entrepreneurial spirit. Know the team that has made possible this new cosmetic concept.
"We would also like to thank all the people who helped us during the project. To our family and friends, to all those who are part of the Minerva Program and to all those who at some point have given us your sincere opinion in order to improve. We couldn't have done this without you!" -The Lesielle Team
Risks and challenges
In March, coinciding with the end of our Kickstarter campaign, we will be ready to start production preparatives. The manufacturing time will be 6 months. In our campaign we commit ourselves to certain device improvements if we reach some goals. Adapting the production to the incorporation of these upgrades in time, will undoubtedly be a challenge for the whole team. However, thanks to our experience and our production partners we do not believe that this will affect the shipping date.
Thank you for your contribution! Your support really means a lot to us. As supporter, we'll send you an ebook called "How to chose the perfect cosmetic", you’ll get exclusive access to secret updates of the project and your name will appear in a special section of our web
