How it works

La Roche-Posay strongly supports initiatives that increase understanding and awareness around the effects of sun exposure and UV rays on the skin. My UV Patch is the first-of-its kind stretchable electronic is a transparent adhesive that stretches and can be applied directly to any area of the skin. Measuring approximately one square inch in area and half the thickness of an average strand of hair - the patch contains photosensitive dyes which change colour when exposed to UV rays to indicate varying levels of sun exposure. Use the patch and app together to understand your personalised levels of exposure and get tips about how to play safe in the sun.
