I started UV Skinz after I lost my 32-year-old husband to melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. It was this experience and being left to raise our three little boys on my own that gave me the determination to want to bring products to the market that can help families live sun safe while never forgetting how important it is to LIVE and HAVE FUN outdoors.
I like to think that UV Skinz sells peace-of-mind from the sun’s damaging rays. We make it a top priority to bring our customers the most fun, fashionable, and affordable sun protection apparel and accessories on the market. We take sun protection very serious and we are extremely passionate about what we do and it shows in our work!
Most people don’t realize that more than 3.5 million skin cancers in over two million people are diagnosed each year or that the incidence of melanoma in teenagers has increased by 100% over the past 10 years. We want to help change these statistics. 95% of skin cancers are preventable!
Thank you for taking the time to read about our story and explore the pages of our amazing sun protection product offerings on our website. I am blessed to have an AMAZING team of employees, friends and family that support me on this journey. They have given their time and energy and love and commitment to help make this company what it is today and I am forever and always grateful. I hope you will join us in our mission to raise awareness about the need for proper sun protection for people all over the world. This one is for you Darren ...
