Smartsun was created by a number of people who were tired of being burned by the sun. Even though we use sun protection, it was always hard to say when we needed to seek shade or re-apply more sun protection. When we bathed and then went for a walk, it was impossible to know how much sun we had and how much sunscreen was still there. With all this in mind, we decided to create a reliable tool that can help us enjoy the sun and avoid burning.
Smartsun is a UV dosimeter that measures the total exposure of UVA and UVB radiation in one day. The exposure is measured by a color change that indicates when a person should apply additional sun protection or avoid the sun completely due to the risk of sunburn. The products change color through a chemical reaction that is regulated by UV radiation. The more intense UV radiation, the faster the chemical reaction will go and the product will change color.
Smartsun products are specially designed for skin types 1 and 2. For more information on specific skin types, see “UV radiation” on Smartsun’s website. We recommend that you contact your local dermatologist for more detailed information on different skin types.
Skin types 1 and 2 are the skin types that are most sensitive to sun and lightly burn in the sun. Children are often considered to be skin type 1 because of their sensitive skin. Adults with light skin usually belong to skin type 2. Skin types 1 and 2 are the most common skin types in the United States, Northern Europe and the Nordic region.
Smartsun currently works with band types 3 and 4, which will be available in the near future.
No, each product should only be used 1 day. After 1 day, the product should be discarded, regardless of whether it has changed color or not. The next day a new product will be used.
No, the products measure the total radiation you are exposed to and when the products change color, color change will not be reversible. The sunscreen prevents the UV radiation from coming down to the band, because color change is slower. When you use more sunscreen, color change will pause and then continue as the sun protection no longer protects.
Yes, if you lubricate the body, the product must also be lubricated. If you do not lubricate yourself, the product should not be lubricated.
Yes, you can use different kinds of SPF on the products.
Yea, they are water resistant and you can use them in both salt water and chlorinated water.
Yes, the stronger the sun, the faster the color of the product will change.
This is true. If, for example, your body is in the sun and the body part with the product in the shade, there will be a late cover of the product. What is important to remember is that the product is an indicator that helps you monitor your UV radiation. The product is a complement to clothes, sunscreen, etc.
Yes, we have clinical, technical and toxicological testing which shows that the products work well. An example of this is 15 Nordic families who tested the bracelets in Egypt. Out of those who tested it burned 0% of users.
The previous bracelets, still available today, are so-called UV Index bracelets. These bracelets only tell if there is high or low UV radiation. These are dangerous as even with a small amount of UV radiation can cause burns. These bracelets are also not suitable for hydrotype.
Smartsun measures the total radiation and tells you when you need to lubricate more but also just before you start burning. Smartsun is adapted for those with sensitive and very sensitive skin which includes children.
