Australia has the highest incidence of skin cancer in the world, so to help protect people from the sun, a new R&D project has created the “ReApply Reminder” A Smart Sunscreen Bottle and iOS app designed to save lives by pro-actively reminding people when to ReApply Sunscreen.

Powered by custom Bluetooth LE technology in the lid, the bottle syncs with an iOS app, and automatically triggers the ReApply Reminder countdown from the moment a user applies sunscreen. The app then dynamically adjusts the recommended ReApply time, based on an algorithm that processes the live Weather, Location and UV Index Rating data to trigger “reminder” notifications designed to remind people to ReApply sunscreen before they get burnt.

The ReApply Reminder is a new innovation project created to explore new ways to keep people safe in the sun. Created & Engineered by VML Australia in partnership with Vitality Brands.
