The Oil Control Test is designed to help your consumers see the benefit of using your product and ultimately strike a balance between having too much oil and maintaining the natural moisture of their skin.
How does it work? The 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 darker dots appear on the test area. A ‘before & 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).

Take “before test” and press the blue area gently onto your forehead or chin for about 5 seconds.
Compare with the result fields and mark result (in the “before” line).
Repeat test with second test strip, marked “after test”.
Having completed the “after” test, compare your result with that of the result field; then compare both result fields to view the improvement.
The test strips are a good tool to start a conversation with customers!"
