The Cosmedico and iSOLde high-pressure product lines illustrate why Cosmedico Light, Inc. continues to be the sunlamp favored by discerning salon owners and their clientele.
With nearly 40 years in the tanning industry, the name Cosmedico Light, Inc. is synonymous with high-quality, durable and performance-driven products. The company’s engineering team in Brand-Erbisdorf, Germany continues to develop precision sunlamp products that are then put to the test in high-volume tanning salons across the country. Two excellent examples of this are the company’s Cosmedico and iSOLde high-pressure lines … like all Cosmedico products, they’re designed to produce consistent performance over a useable lifetime of 800 hours, making them the ideal sunlamp choice for salon owners who depend upon results-driven, reliable sunlamp products.
Bearing the company’s moniker, the Cosmedico sunlamp line continues to be a favorite amongst selective salon owners. “For operators looking to offer a UVA-dominant tanning session, the variety of sunlamps within this line area a great choice,” said Kevin Apgar, Cosmedico President, “This line includes products that range from 400 watts all the way up to 2,000 watts, and are rated for 800 hours of useful life.” Individual product names such as the Cosmedico R7S (400-watt), the R7 (500-watt) and the SBSN (1,000-watt) remain the most recognized within this highly-popular product line.
Already a leader in low-pressure sunlamp manufacturing, Cosmedico does high-pressure, too. To complement its own high-pressure line, the company acquired the iSOLde product range from lighting giant, Philips. Apgar explained, “These lamps feature a gold coating on both ends, which allows the lamp to reach maximum UV production very quickly. This helps to stabilize the lamp’s heat production, which is particularly helpful in tanning rooms that might not have optimal airflow.”
Considering the huge part salon owners play in Cosemdico’s sunlamp development, it’s no wonder Cosmedico lamps are so popular among this group. Apgar explained, “When developing each product, we seek direct input from tanning salon owners. Utilizing this input, the lamps are produced and beta-tested in select facilities across the country and only made available once each product has received rave reviews from the salon owners who put them through their paces.” Seeking salon owner input on sunlamp performance continues to be a long-standing tradition at Cosmedico, Apgar added.
Because a tanning business greatly depends upon sunlamp performance, these devices can be a salon operator’s most important tool, employee and promotional product. At Cosmedico, quality is a matter of design, and the Cosmedico and iSOLde product lines are testament to the company’s dedication to this principle.
