suncare brought to the point

With saferSUN UV WARNING.

Why saferSUN?

Sunscreens do not provide absolute protection. They lose their effect over time. Up to now, there was no way of knowing whether you are still protected or not.

To solve this problem, we developed intelligent UV WARNING STICKERS that accurately measure the amount of radiation that is currently penetrating your skin. This way, they help you take better care of yourself and your loved ones.

The very first UV WARNING STICKER with dermatrueTM technology.

The sticker imitates the structure of your skin and changes its colour from transparent to purple when you are no longer protected from the sun.

One sticker lasts the whole day. It changes colour several times – i.e. the sunscreen can be applied more often during the day.

saferSUN UV WARNING STICKERS in action

You can watch the colour on the sticker fade and become transparent – just minutes after applying sunscreen in direct sunlight.

As soon as the sticker regains its purple colour, sun protection must be applied again.

Fully protected

A few minutes after applying sunscreen to the UV WARNING STICKER, it becomes transparent. Please note that this only works outdoors in the sun. You are now fully protected as long as the UV WARNING STICKER remains transparent.

Our mission

Our mission is to reduce the risk of skin cancer. Especially among the most vulnerable ones – children. We want to encourage everyone to responsibly enjoy the sun by sharing the knowledge to prevent sunburn, skin aging and skin cancer as much as possible.

We tend to perceive the number of skin cancer cases only marginally. They usually affect us only if someone from the family or a friend of us is affected. We do not care about UV radiation because we can neither see nor feel it. That is why we developed a product that can reliably detect UV radiation on the skin.

Of all cancers, skin cancer has the highest growth rates. Even though skin cancer is the easiest to prevent. saferSUN warns you reliably if your sun protection weakens and can thus make an important contribution to prevention.
Here’s how it works:

How it works

It is difficult to predict the effectiveness of sunscreen because it depends on various factors. From the intensity of sun exposure, the sun protection factor, the amount of sunscreen applied, water on the skin, etc.

With their patented dermatrueTM technology, saferSUN UV WARNING STICKERS show the amount of UV radiation the skin is exposed to. When UV radiation penetrates the skin, the sticker turns purple. If enough sunscreen is applied, it becomes transparent.

What do the saferSUN UV WARNING STICKERS consist of?

They consist of three layers

    1. The top layer with dermatrueTM technology absorbs sunscreen just like the human skin.
    2. The detector layer: It is transparent with no UV light and turns purple when UV rays come through.
    3. The adhesive layer: It is antiallergic and well tolerated by the skin. The UV WARNING STICKER lasts all day and can also be worn during sports.

Instruction for use

Follow the simple steps below to make sure your UV WARNING STICKER will work reliably.

Remove the UV WARNING STICKER from the foil with clean hands and glue it onto your body.

Avoid hairy, oily or sweaty body parts and open wounds.

Apply sunscreen – let it take effect on the UV WARNING STICKER for about 30 seconds before rubbing it in.

Go to the sun. The UV WARNING STICKER will become transparent after about 5 minutes. Now you are protected!

Colour

The UV WARNING STICKERS are purple at the beginning and become transparent as soon as you are protected. By changing colour, they reliably indicate your protection level. All day long!

You only need one UV WARNING STICKER per day.
