UV Intensity Test

How can the intensity of
UV rays be demonstrated?

USP Solutions’ UV Intensity 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 UV Intensity’s test area reacts with a color change when exposed to UV radiation within seconds. The more extreme the color change, the higher the UV intensity level.

The knowledge about the individual’s sun care needs and UV radiation, combined with product information, guides consumers to purchase their appropriate sun care selections from your brand.

Your challenge

Sun care brands offer a wide variety of different UV products with different SPF factors and filters.  Which product is suitable for which UV intensity?

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 UV awareness in the first place?

Many of our beauty brand clients face additional challenges such as the need to:

  • Educate consumers
  • Demonstrate the need for sun protection
  • 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 are often overwhelmed by the great variety of UV protection products and the different SPF factors. Many consumers are unaware of the need for sun protection and unaware of the damage UV rays can have on our skin. How do they know if the product holds what it promises?

Some questions sun care customers ask themselves:

  • Do I need sun protection?
  • Which sun protection is right for my skin?
  • How can I prevent sun damage?
  • Which SPF factor do I need?
  • How do I know if the claim works?
