L’Oreal is set to unveil the first-ever pliable electronic ultraviolet skin monitor at today’s Consumer Electronics show in Las Vegas. According to a report from WWD, the monitor will be titled My UV Patch and will be launched by L’Oreal-owned cosmetic brand, La Roche-Posay later this year.
Measuring around one inch square, the adhesive patch was developed by L’Oreal’s Technical Incubator and biometric health analysts MC10 Inc., and can be directly applied to any part of the body its wearer wishes to monitor. Upon exposure to ultraviolet rays, the photosensitive dyes in the patch will begin to react, showing varying levels of potentially damaging radiation. Wearers can then photograph the monitor using a smartphone and upload it the My UV Patch app for a comprehensive reading of the concentration of their sun exposure.
The development of the patch comes after research by the Skin Care Foundation, which showed that 90 percent of non-melanoma skin cancers in 2015 were directly linked to ultraviolet radiation.END
