Sometimes, the unthinkable happens. That was the case when my 32-year-old husband, Darren, lost his battle with skin cancer. Because of this disease, our three little boys and I were left with a huge hole in our lives.

From that point, I was determined to help families live sun-safe through education and innovative products.

At UV Skinz, we believe that every interaction is an opportunity to raise awareness about sun protection and potentially save lives. Our UPF 50+ sun protective apparel blocks out 98% of the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays, providing peace-of-mind in the sun while you enjoy the outdoors.

Grab your UV Skinz, go outside, and play!
