Sprout teamed up with DermaFlash to create the second generation Dermaplane: a revolutionary, exfoliating facial device that painlessly removes dead skin and pesky peach fuzz. Sprout was tasked with creating a new iconic form that was ergonomic and easy to use for women of all ages.
We began by focusing on the usability and functional aspects of the product. We designed a twisted form for the product that intuitively fits into a woman’s hand. In addition to the functional benefits, the twisted handle also provides the unique and iconic form Dermaflash had desired. The product’s over-molded silicone outer makes it both easy to grip and waterproof. We also integrated a power button with LEDs that show through the silicon outer, and a single press, edge eject button. We then topped the product with a metallic cap that increases the perceived value as well as manufacturing efficiency.
