Scalp Sebum Test

How to determine the scalp sebum level?

USP’s Scalp Sebum test is an educational marketing tool designed to empower product promotion of hair care.   

As a marketing executive, what would help your job in providing guidance for your consumers to their appropriate selection from your brand? Occasionally, they may feel overwhelmed by the large range of products available for hair. Uncertain about their scalp needs they find it challenging to find the best choice. USP’s range of technologies helps them make that choice 

How does it work? The test changes color when it reacts with the oil on the scalp’s surface. The knowledge about the individual’s scalp sebum level, combined with product information helps consumers to choose the right product and thus creates brand trust and loyalty.
