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. SGS HRL has many different types of sunscreen tests that pay different amounts from $50.00 and up. Some tests include going in and out of a whirlpool. The length of time for each test varies. Please call for more information.

For further information about testing products at SGS HRL, call 908.810.1160 or email or come to HRL Monday to Friday between 9:00AM and 7:00PM.

COVID-19 Update

Due to the current covid-19 situation, beginning Monday, March 23, 2020, SGS HRL will temporarily cease conducting tests requiring panelists to come into the lab. This is for the safety of our panelists and staff and to follow Governor Murphy’s recent executive order.

If you are currently participating in a test, you will be contacted by our staff with instructions for visits and payment information. If you have a test at home product, please continue to use it as instructed and complete your Daily Diary. We will do our best to contact each panelist individually to provide further instruction.

At this time, we do not have date for resuming all tests. Please know that we value our relationships with all of our panelists and will miss seeing you in the coming weeks. Please check our website and Facebook page for updates.

Thank you for your participation in our studies. We wish you and your families all the best for your health and safety during this challenging time.
