Acne Risk Technology

How to determine the
likelihood of getting acne?

USP Solutions’ Acne Risk Technology appeals to your consumer’s senses within seconds – enabling them to touch and feel your brand, thus determining the acne risk level.

The body produces sebum, which is an oily substance that lubricates skin and hair by traveling up hair follicles onto the skin surface. Acne occurs when the body produces an excess amount of sebum and dead skin cells, which build up in the hair follicle and plug the pore. USP Solutions’ reliable and easy-to-use Acne Risk Technology detects the amount of sebum on the skin, which reacts to the test strips by displaying dark dots. By comparing their strips with the reference fields, consumers can determine their chance of developing acne.

When your brand demonstrates to your consumers their likelihoods to develop acne, they experience an “A-ha” moment. This emotional experience is also referred to as “Beauty Moment of Truth”. The Acne Risk Technology, therefore, creates an engaging consumer experience.  It also educates consumers, leading them to the right product choice – essential when it comes to brand trust and brand loyalty.
