As a discipline which covers the “largest organ of the body”, dermatology is so much more than just aesthetics. Dermatologists diagnose and treat over 3,000 different conditions related to the skin, including eczema, acne, psoriasis, and skin cancer. Like dermatologists, UV Skinz’ cares about sun safety, and it is our mission to ensure families stay protected from the sun’s rays while enjoying the outdoors. Once a year the UV Skinz team gets to travel to AAD’s Annual Meeting and speak with hundreds of doctors over the course of several busy days. We discuss the importance of sun protection, and connect with incredible dermatologists and staff who share similar passions for maintaining skin health and preventing the development and progression of skin cancer…and this year we are excited to say the meeting will be held in Washington D.C.! :)
Check out the bullets below for 4 ways UV Skinz advocates skin health and sun safety.
- UPF 50+ Standards: All of our products are rated UPF 50+ (protecting against over 98% of UV radiation that attempts to penetrate the garment) and tested and rated in accordance with the AATCC 183 and ASTM D6544, the highest UV fabric testing standards.
- Exclusive Discounts for Dermatologists & Patients: Dermatologists, their staff and family receive an exclusive discount off UV Skinz brand products…and so do patients! :) –Learn more about this program by visiting booth #1045 at the show)
- Sun Safety Education: We include a free UV Detector Key Chain in every order, along with sun safety focused (and fun!) children’s materials with any children’s purchase. Our goal is to provide our customers (and beyond!) with knowledge and products to keep them sun safe while they enjoy the outdoors.
- Skin Cancer Awareness Event Donations: UV Skinz is all about helping to raise awareness about skin cancer and encouraging sun safety, and a big way we do this is through donating to and sponsoring special events that focus on skin cancer screenings, awareness, education, and prevention.
