Heads up, sun-worshippers – L’Oréal is making its first foray into wearable tech with My UV Patch.
Sun protection has always been an important issue and this lightweight patch will make it easier for us to monitor our exposure to UV rays.
L’Oréal Group’s leading dermatological skincare brand, La Roche-Posay have created this flexible transparent patch. It adheres directly to the skin, and measures one square inch and 50 micrometres thick – that’s just half the thickness of an average strand of hair.
“Connected technologies have the potential to completely disrupt how we monitor the skin’s exposure to various external factors, including UV,” stated Guive Balooch, Global Vice President of L’Oréal’s US-based Technology Incubator.
It could signal a change in behaviour towards sun exposure and the health problems that come with it.
