UV Skinz Giveaway
UV Skinz is a line of clothing and accessories that provide 50+ UV protection even when wet--that means protection from 98% of the sun's harmful UV rays! That the type of fabric and weave traditionally helps or hurts the UV protection, but that UV Skinz also uses a "special additive before the weaving/knitting even begins that helps bind the fabric more tightly when wet OR dry." Two interesting facts about this: 1) "50+" is the highest UVP (UV protection) rating that clothing can have, and 2) a regular shirt has a UVP factor of 7 when dry and 4 when wet.
Here's the reason behind UV Skinz according to its creator, Rhonda Sparks:
I started UV Skinz after losing my 32-year-old husband to melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. It was this experience and having to raise our three little boys on my own that gave me the drive and determination to educate consumers about the importance of proper sun protection any chance I can get, while still not losing site of how valuable it is to PLAY and HAVE FUN outdoors!
I hear that the quality is amazing and I would want one of my own. The good news is that UV Skinz has a line of adult sized items and they're having a big sale right now so you can get some great deals!
