Fast Absorption Test

How fast is your
body lotion absorbed?

USP Solutions’ Fast Absorption Test is a reliable and easy-to-use test which appeals to your consumer’s senses, enabling them to touch and feel your brand, thus emotionally engaging them.

The Fast Absorption Test reacts to oil and moisturizing elements on the skin. If a lotion is absorbed quickly, only few sebum and moisturizing elements are left on the skin; they are displayed as dark spots on the test area.

When consumers learn that your product claim can be proven, they experience an “A-ha” moment. This emotional experience is also referred to as “Beauty Moment of Truth”. The Fast Absorption Test therefore creates an engaging consumer experience, whilst proving your product’s claim, which is essential when it comes to brand trust and brand loyalty.

Your challenge

Most body care brands offer a wide variety of product choice, each with a different product claim, however consumers are often unsure about product effectiveness.

How do you, as a marketing executive, guide consumers to the right product choice within your range and prove your product claim? How do you get attention and raise awareness in the first place?

Many of our beauty brand clients face additional challenges such as the need to:

  • Demonstrate product efficacy
  • Prove a specific product claim
  • Educate Consumers
  • Educate their sales force
  • Establish a conversation starter to change selling into a consultancy situation (at home, or at POS, …)

Your customer’s challenge

Customers are often uncertain about their skin needs, given the great variety of skin care products they can find it difficult to decide on one specific brand. They often ask themselves, if the products really deliver what they promise.

Some questions body care customers ask themselves:

  • What are my skin care needs?
  • Which brand is right for me?
  • Which product out of my favorite brand’s range works best for my skin?
  • How do I know if the claim really works?
  • Why is the beauty advisor recommending this particular product? Is it his/her own interest?
