PH-Value Test

Is my skin healthy?

USP Solutions’ pH-value 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 pH-value Test is matched to the beauty industry’s needs and in a matter of seconds the test allows consumers to understand their skin’s balance.
This knowledge about his/her skin balance, combined with product information, guides consumers to purchase their appropriate body care selections from your brand!

When consumers learn about their body care needs, they experience an “A-ha” moment. This emotional experience is also referred to as the “Beauty Moment of Truth”. The pH-value Test therefore creates an engaging consumer experience which guides them to the right product choice which is essential when it comes to brand trust and brand loyalty.

Your challenge

Many body care brands offer pH neutral products for sensitive skin, however many consumers are unsure about their body and skin care needs and do not know about the importance of their skin’s pH-value.

How do you, as a Marketing Executive, guide consumers to the right product choice within your range? 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

Most of the time consumers feel overwhelmed by the great variety of body care products available. Uncertain about their skin and body care needs they find it difficult to choose “the one”.  How do they know if the product holds what it promises?

Some questions skin care customers ask themselves:

  • What is the pH-value of my skin?
  • Why should I choose pH-value neutral product?
  • Which product out of my favorite brand’s range works best for my skin?
  • Why is the beauty advisor recommending this particular product? Is it his/her own interest?
