What is ModiFace?

ModiFace, founded by University of Toronto engineering professor Parham Aarabi, became a global market leader in augmented reality and artificial intelligence for the Beauty industry.

We recognized the power of ModiFace as we transform to a digitally augmented beauty company.

We acquired ModiFace in 2018 – a major step in reinventing the Beauty experience for you and the first time ever L’Oréal acquired a tech company.
