Sunscreen Tests



If you are Skin Types I,II or III as shown above, you may be eligible for sunscreen testing. This is a 3 day test. Day 1 and Day 3 visits are about 15 minutes. On Day 2 we will apply sunscreens to your back in small areas. You will sit in a comfortable chair and we will shine a light on your back that is like sunlight. This is a 3 hour test and you must return the next day to have your skin scored. The test pays $40 on Day 3 after you are scored.

Other tests, which last about 6 hours require you to wear your bathing suit and get into HRL whirlpools to test if the sunscreen is waterproof. This test pays $60 or $70, depending if you go into the whirlpool twice or four times.
