iF concept design award 2014

Although SPF & PA are usually indicated on the product, it is still easy for people to forget when it’s time to reapply sunscreen. So it gets reapplied late or even forgotten all together, which can lead to sunburns and even skin cancer. The “Sun Stamp” is a bottle with a photochromic stamp on the bottle cap, while the bottom part is used for sunscreen storage. Simply put a stamp on your arm. Then apply the sunscreen, covering the stamp pattern. The black stamp pattern turns red as the sunscreen absorbs the UV light and your protection starts to run low. It would serve as a reminder for people of exactly when to reapply sunscreen.

"It's a good solution that rides on the consumer insight of wanting to know what the right number to use is and when it is the right time to re-apply the sun screen to ensure the best protection. The designer smartly used color and icon to provide an easy-to-understand indication, which has strongly demonstrated the solution-driven concept."
