Scalp Sebum Test

How to determine the scalp sebum level?

USP Solutions’ Scalp Sebum 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 Scalp Sebum Test’s test area 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, guides consumers to purchase their appropriate hair care selections from your brand.

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