Improving SPOT - UV Ray Detecting Sticker



Suncayr has developed a sticker that changes colour when your sunscreen is no longer protecting you. The sticker - SPOT - is put directly on the skin and then sunscreen is applied to your whole body.

The sticker is clear when you are protected from the sun and the sticker turns purple when your skin is being exposed to UV rays.


This project focuses on identifying the optimal concentration range for UV blockers and suitable TRP/UV blocker combinations. This information will be assist in implementing future versions of Suncayr's SPOT.
