Purchasing this item will earn you 2.5 points

The Detecto-Ring consists of plastic UV sensing beads and a colored key ring. The white beads will turn color when exposed to UV-A or UV-B 50,000 times.

Not all shade or clothing protects you from sun exposure. Test your exposure with the UV Detecto Ring and learn when you may be at risk. I recommend you place the ring on your key ring so it is always handy to check your UV exposure. What you learn may be startling! For example:

1. my ring turned intense color while I was sitting at an outdoor cafe in the complete shade of a tall building, but apparently fully exposed to reflected light from the building across the street!

2. I placed my ring in the pocket of a 1 year old sun protection garment and it colored a little, meaning that the sun protection of the garment was wearing out and I needed to replace it.

Try it and see how well you know your sun exposure risks.

The Detecto-ring is a teaching tool and is not a medical device that can be used to guarantee sun safety.

What My Customers Say:

"Those little beads are fun. I popped them out and showed people and they said it's magic. I thought we would never get home. I was testing the dash board of the car, this window and that window. I even took them in the shower to see how much light comes through the window and there was some." 

"Those beads were fun and surprising. I was so surprised to see that in the full shade of a building how much sun there is. I thought shade protected you. I was also surprised and pleased that the gloves I use to work outside and drive the tractor didn't let the sun through; the beads stayed white when I put them under them and drove the tractor all day."
