Sun Damage –
Sunburn & Tanning

How to prevent
sunburn and tanning?

USP Solutions’ Sun Damage- Sunburn and Tanning Demo Tool is reliable and easy-to-use. It enables consumers to touch and feel your brand, thus emotionally engaging them.

The Sun Damage- Sunburn and Tanning Demo Tool reacts to UV light and simulates the sun’s damaging impact on the skin. This dramatic test can be used to make your consumers aware of the necessity to protect their skin from harmful UV rays, by using your UV protection products. Furthermore, it can be used with your SPF product to prove your product’s effectiveness against sun damage.

The knowledge about the damage sun can cause, combined with product information, guides consumers to purchase their appropriate sun care selections from your brand.

When consumers learn about the effectiveness of your brand they experience an “A-ha” moment. This emotional experience is also referred to as the “Beauty Moment of Truth”. The Sun Damage- Sunburn and Tanning Demo Tool therefore creates an engaging consumer experience. It guides to the right product choice, which is essential when it comes to brand trust and brand loyalty.

Your challenge

Most sun care brands offer a wide variety of product choice, each with a different sun protection factor suitable for various levels of UV radiation. Consumers are, however, often unsure about their sun care needs and the damage to unprotected skin.

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

  • Raise the need for sun protection
  • Educate consumers
  • Demonstrate product efficacy
  • Prove a specific product claim
  • Educate their sales force
  • Establish a conversation starter to change selling into a consultancy situation (at home, or at POS, …)

Your customer’s challenge

Customers often feel overwhelmed by the great variety of sun care products available. Uncertain about their sun care needs and the damage that can be caused to unprotected skin, makes it difficult for them to choose “the one”. Will the product hold what it promises?

Some questions sun care customers ask themselves:

  • Why is sunscreen so important?
  • What kind of sun protection do I need?
  • Which sun care product is right for my skin?
  • Which brand is right for me?
  • Which product out of my favorite brand’s range works best for my sun care needs given a certain UV intensity?
  • How do I know if the claim really works?
