Suncayr’s mission is to give people the awareness they need to safely enjoy every day they spend outside. They’ve realized that sunscreen alone isn't a complete solution - you have to remember to reapply your sunscreen. The question becomes: how do you know that your sunscreen is still protecting your skin while you are doing many different activities outside.
To solve this problem, Suncayr has developed SPOT, a smart indicator of UV light. Each SPOT comes with images that kids and adults will love, and every SPOT has a special purple design that changes colour to warn you of your UV protection. All you have to do is stick the SPOT on your arm and apply sunscreen on top of the SPOT, and to the rest of your body as you normally would. When the special ink changes from white/clear to purple, it's telling you that your sunscreen is no longer protecting you. If you apply more sunscreen, the purple ink will change colour back to clear/white, letting you know that you're safe. The colour change is fast and reversible, all day long. Since SPOTs will stay on while you swim and sweat, they can provide you with constant awareness of your protection all day long. Safely enjoy every day you spend outside with SPOT by Suncayr!
