La Roche-Posay, one of L'Oréal Group's skin-care brands, announced the availability of its My UV Patch, a stretchable skin 

sensor that uses Near Field Communication (NFC) RFID and photosensitive dye to help people track their exposure to the sun's

ultraviolet (UV) radiation. L'Oréal launched a beta version of its My UV Patch earlier this year (see Skin-thin NFC Patch Goes

to Market).

My UV Patch is 50 micrometers thick—half the thickness of an average strand of hair, according to La Roche-Posay. It stretches

and adheres directly to the skin and factors in skin tone to measure exposure to the sun. The sensor works with the My UV Patch

mobile app (available both on iOS and Android) that helps people track UV exposure and informs them of their level of sun exposure.

My UV Patch will be available free of charge via La Roche-Posay's website and from key physicians (listed on the company’s 

website) this summer.
