As parents we are passionate about our children’s health. That includes keeping their skin safe. I know when I was little we didn’t know much about sun protection other than it was important to wear sunscreen to prevent a sunburn. There was little to no fear of skin cancer, or long term skin damage.
Now that is all different. Virtually gone are the days of spending the entire day in the sun with little to no skin protection. I know my son has worn a UV protected swim shirt every single time we are spending time in the water or lengthy time outdoors. Wide hats to protect his head, and lots of sunscreen to cover the rest of his body.
ABOUT UV SKINZ 2012 “My First Skin” Program:
One of the most sensitive to the sun our infants. Their skin hasn’t build up a level of protection to help protect them at all. UV Skinz is working to promote awareness with their 2012 action campaign to honor National Skin Cancer Awareness Month. Now in it’s 5th consecutive year the “My First Skinz” program and will be donating the baby skin protection clothing to selected maternity wards and pediatricians’ offices. What’s even more exciting is that any online order placed during the month of may will include a FREE baby UV Skinz shirt. If you no longer have an infant in your home you are encouraged to donate the UV Skinz to an organization that can distribute it, or share it with friend or neighbor who has a young infant.
“We’re excited to once again be featuring our ‘My First Skinz’ program, which has had great success in previous years on educating families about the harmful effects of sun exposure in infants. The free baby swim shirt giveaway gets families in the early habit of making sure their children have adequate sun protection – not just through sunscreen, which can be irritating to skin – but through our UV swim shirts and UPF 50+ clothing,” says company founder, Rhonda Sparks. “We’ve built a full community on our website to educate people about the damaging effects of the sun. Our informative Baby Sun Protection webpage describes how parents can protect their children’s fragile skin.”
UV Skinz was founded by Rhonda Sparks in 2005, after she lost her 32-year-old husband to melanoma skin cancer. The company offers a full-selection of clothing products with a UPF rating of 50 +, which has been proven to block over 98% of the sun’s damaging UVA and UVB rays. For young children and babies, in particular, the swimwear offers sun protection without the harmful sunscreen chemicals that canirritate sensitive skin.
