Galvanic Total Home Esthetics Skincare Takes Consumers by Storm

“Style Follow Skinable“, a beauty product created through a partnership between TheHan Co., Ltd. and the well-known, beauty-fashion talk show namesake, “SBS Style Follow”, will be launched in Thailand soon, and new products will be added as well. TheHan Co., Ltd. hopes that this launch will make “Style Follow Skinable” as popular in Thailand as it is in other countries.

The K-beauty industry is booming worldwide, and the beauty market in Thailand is expected to reach over 7 trillion won in 2019. There is especially fierce competition among Korean beauty companies in Thailand. In recent years, home beauty products, using a variety of technologies, have gained popularity with their approach to skincare through cosmetics.

New products that use galvanic polarity to push currents have attracted a lot of attention from consumers in recent years.

“Style Follow Skinable” is a beauty product that utilizes galvanic polarity and has received much praise in Korea and other countriesSeveral key factors have led to its popularity:

  • The “Style Follow Skinable” galvanic massager uses galvanic ions and a vibration function for everything from peeling to nutrition supply and elasticity care. It is constructed with 24K pure gold blades that are created in a careful three-stage process, making them safe to use on the skin.
  • The face cooler tightens the skin and pores even in hot weather, improving skin elasticity, and reducing the temperature of the skin through cooling therapy. It is readily distinguishable by the outstretched arms of the grips which function as an accessory cradle.
  • The True Solution Ultrasonic LED Massager offers galvanic ions (positive ion-deep cleansing, negative ion-nutrition supply), three LED therapies, 12,000 cycles per minute microwave and ultrasonic (3Mhz) skin massage.

In January 2019, South Korea’s Incheon Metropolitan City organized an export exhibition at which “Style Follow Skinable” attracted a great deal of attention from buyers in Thailand. The city’s Incheon TechnoPark and Thailand Trade Office will continue to cooperate in Thailand business.

Haier,the tailored life solutions manufacturer brought 179 smart home solutions in 28 scenarios to Hannover MESSE, showcasing an upgraded version of COSMOPlat, the world’s largest mass customization solutions platform and unveiling an innovative realization of the exhibition theme, “Integrated Industry – Industrial Intelligence”.

First launched in 2016, Haier’s independently-developed COSMOPlat digitally integrates the entire factory process and supply chain, including interaction, R&D, and procurement, to better serve individual customers. This year’s upgrade combines a diverse range of advanced intelligent manufacturing technologies and 5G to open up a new chapter of mass customization, pioneering the world’s first “smart + 5G” customization verification platform with profound application possibilities for industries as diverse as ceramics, agriculture, motor home manufacturing, molds, and machinery. In addition to a large number of enterprise customers, Haier attracted several industry-leading experts to its booth, including Henning Kagermann, the father of the Industry 4.0 movement to digitize industrial production, and Francisco Betti, head of Advanced Manufacturing Industry in World Economic Forum’s (WEF).

“I’m thrilled to see the progress achieved by the latest iteration of COSMOPlat, now integrated with advanced technologies such as 5G and AI,” said Kagermann following his tour of the Haier booth. “Not only is Haier serving large enterprises, but it is empowering SMEs to transform and upgrade as well. Thanks to the real-time updates and optimization, a larger number of customers can enjoy greater efficiency and a more user-centric experience.”

As the first Chinese enterprise to be selected to the WEF’s network of “Manufacturing Lighthouses”, a community of leading manufacturers that are integrating Industry 4.0 technologies, Haier leveraged the exhibition to co-host the WEF Lighthouse Factory Forum with Bosch, Phoenix Contact, Rold, Sandvik, and Tata Steel. Together, the companies announced the Lighthouse Program Hannover Initiative, which seeks to set and implement industry norms for standards, technology, talent, security, and more. As the leader of this cooperation, Haier’s COSMOPlat will draw on its open ecosystem to promote and cultivate the initiative.

Thus far, COSMOPlat has developed 15 sub-platforms for different industries, with 12 demonstration bases across six regions, including eastern China and northern China. The model has been further implemented in 20 countries, transforming clothing, food, housing, travel, health, education, and other industries so that global users can enjoy the enhanced lifestyle experience opened up by mass customization.

Global Survey Shows Travellers Still Struggle With Lack of Information About Delayed and Cancelled Flights, Says Cirium

  • New survey reveals well over a third of travellers have had to pay more to make alternative travel plans following a delayed flight
  • Nearly two thirds would be likely to use an app which alerted family, friends and work colleagues if their flight was disrupted
  • Cirium, the aviation data and analytics experts, say flight delays and cancellations cost airlines over US$30bn a year

Over a third of global travellers (36%) say they don’t get enough information about delayed and cancelled flights, according to aviation and data analytics experts at Cirium.

A new survey for Cirium reveals the impact of flight delays and cancellations and the need for better management of flight disruption, with more communication via proactive flight updates for affected passengers.

Almost two thirds (61%) of those surveyed said that they would be likely to use an app which alerted their friends, family or company about their delay.

In 2018, approximately 3.9 million flights – or 10,700 a day – were delayed by over 30 minutes or cancelled globally, affecting more than 470 million passenger journeys around the world.

Flight delays and cancellation cost airlines globally US$30bn a year in lost revenue, in addition to costs borne by their passengers.

Airline flight delays and cancellations are caused by a wide range of factors, such as technical issues with aircraft, bad weather, air traffic control problems, strikes, medical diversions and congested airports, among many others.

The global YouGov study conducted for Cirium in the UK, US, UAE and China, showed more than a third of travellers worldwide (35%) who had experienced a delayed or cancelled flight, did not find it easy to change their travel plans, with well over a third (40%) left out of pocket after being forced to pay more to make alternative travel plans.

Airlines also had to bear the massive cost of disruption with flight delays and cancellations costing the equivalent of US$7 for every departing passenger – slightly less than the airline’s net profit per person per departing flight.

Jeremy Bowen, Cirium Chief Executive Officer, said: Flight delays and cancellations are an unfortunate aspect of modern air travel and can have a big impact on travellers, whether flying for business or leisure. We recognize that the cost of disruption for airlines is also a significant problem. While our survey reveals well over a third of passengers still have to pay more for alternative travel plans, airlines can proactively issue flight alerts ahead of travel and re-allocate tickets without fees to take the sting out of flight disruption. We all want to travel stress free and get people to where they want to go, which is why at Cirium we work closely with airlines around the world on initiatives which reduce the impact of disrupted flights.”

The survey revealed nearly two thirds (57%) of those polled only found out about their flight delay or cancellation once they had reached the airport. When asked 29% said that they would prefer to be informed about a delay through a text alert with another two thirds (61%) saying they would use an app which alerted their friends, family or company about their delay.

More than double (48%) said that they would be most frustrated if their leisure flight was delayed or cancelled compared to the 21% who would be most frustrated if a business flight was cancelled.

Over a third of global travellers would be most sympathetic if a flight was disrupted due to bad weather (35%) followed by technical issues with their aircraft (30%). However, only a tiny 5% would be most sympathetic with delays or cancellations due to problems caused by air traffic control.

Cirium enables the wider travel industry to manage the impact of disruption with intelligent data and analytics solutions. For example, Cirium analyzes more than 70 million passenger journeys annually to provide meaningful insights and keep the travel industry in motion.

This data is used by a wide range of customers, such as airlines and airports, to improve the travel experience by smart devices and metasearch engines, like Google, Amazon and Expedia, to provide information directly to passengers, enabling them to make more informed choices when on the move.

Cirium’s data and analytics divisions have been the first to bring innovative solutions to market, such as the first to automate the ticket waiver process during times of flight delays and cancellations.

It employs over 400 technologists, analysts, data scientists and market experts in the UK, US, EuropeMiddle EastIndiaand Asia-Pacific.

The group has significantly grown in recent years with the acquisition of leading data intelligence companies, including Ascend, Innovata, Diio and FlightStats.
