UV Efficacy Test

How effective is your UV product?

When considering a product, consumers often ask themselves: does it hold promise? USP Solutions’ simple and easy to use UV Efficacy Card connects with consumers’ senses and, demonstrates accurately and reliably the product effectiveness.

The moment your consumers visually see that proof of protection against harmful UV rays, they become your loyal customers, continuing to use your brand.

The test reacts within seconds with a colour change when it is exposed to UV rays. Extreme colour results indicate a higher intensity of the UV level. Simply prove the effectiveness of the product by comparing the colour change of one test area covered with an SPF product against the test area without any SPF application.
