Oil Control Test

Prove that your oil control product really works!

USP Solutions’ Oil Control Test is a reliable and easy-to-use. It appeals to your consumer’s senses – enabling them to touch and feel your brand.

The Oil Control Test reacts to sebum on the skin, allowing the consumer to determine whether she/he has slightly, medium or very oily skin within seconds. The higher the amount of sebum the more dark dots appear on the test area.

A “before and after” test clearly proves how great your product works. If the oil control test is applied to the skin after having used your product, the test strip shows only a small amount of sebum (only a few dark spots on the test field).

When a consumer learns about their skin needs through a true haptic approach, they experience an “A-ha” moment. This special moment of attention and learning is also referred to as “Beauty Moment of Truth”. The Oil Control Test therefore creates an engaging consumer experience, proving that your product holds what it promises – the first step towards brand love and brand loyalty.
