Innovative tool to help prevent skin cancer‏

I received a sample of this several weeks ago and was so excited to try it but we have had a lot of late spring rain. Finally this week the sun came out and I was able to take the UVSunSense wristband out for a trial test. With two young kids I am big on sunscreen care but I admit we get caught up in activities and I am not sure when to reapply.

UVSunSense takes the guess work out of reapplying, I simply apply sunscreen to my exposed skin and the band. The band turned purple once it had been activated by the sun, after about two hours the purple had faded and I reapplied sunscreen. We were out of the sun shortly after but if you stay in the sun the words “Apply Sunscreen to This Side” will disappear and you know it is time to cover up or seek shelter from the sun. A great easy way to protect yourself and your family from those accidental sunburns and damage on long days at the beach or lake.

Introducing the UVSunSense™ wristband. A convenient, reliable means to monitor exposure to harmful UVA and UVB rays for you and your children.

The UVSunSense™ wristband is engineered to be used in conjunction with a sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher to alert you to potential excessive exposure as you work or play in the sun.

According to the American Cancer Society, a sunburn will fade, but damage to deeper layers of skin remains and can eventually cause cancer. That’s why sun-safe habits should begin in childhood and last a lifetime.

UVSunSense™ wristbands provide you with a simple sun-sensitive gauge through color change that alerts you when you need to reapply sunscreen and when to get out of the sun and its potential damaging effects.

Add the UVSunSense™ wristband to your suncare product offerings to help your customers enjoy a healthier future in the sun!

What a good idea! Especially when moms and dads are out with the little ones. Do you know if the band can differentiate between SPF’s like a 30 and an 85? Thanks for the post! I’ll share it with my readers as well!
