For many years, L'Oréal has been developing partnerships with external start-up incubators to encourage technological innovation. The purpose of the MYT is to create the same incubation process internally. The MYT is here to help identify, develop and implement ideas thanks to the new 4.0 technologies and agile methods (ideation - incubation - acceleration).
Based in Aulnay-sous-Bois, this 800m2 incubator was created to welcome the EMEA (Europe – Middle East – Africa) Industry and Supply Chain teams and foster cooperation between employees, experts, start-ups and universities. This collaborative space is equipped with the latest cutting-edge technologies (robots, 3D printers, digital technology, virtual and augmented reality ...) to meet the needs of our various participants.
The aim? Give the teams all the means to create, prototype and transform their ideas into concrete achievements and support international deployment.
For this first MYT edition 14 projects out of 160 were selected to join the adventure gathering teams from 5 different nationalities and 12 L'Oréal sites!

The concept of the printer has greatly evolved since its beginning, when its only function was to generate paper documents. In the cosmetics industry, 3D printers now allow for the creation of prototypes and packaging in record time. But this technology goes far beyond just printing objects. Three-dimensional printing now allows for the creation of cellular structures, known as “bioprinting.”
