Happy Skin Cancer Awareness month!

New_daily-and-active-seals-of-recommendation

The sunny days of summer will be here soon so somebody was thinking when they designated May to be Skin Cancer Awareness month.  To help “celebrate” and do our part in raising awareness about the most common kind of cancer that affects humans, we’ll be featuring information about skin cancer in our blog entries, tweets and Facebook posts this month. 

To start we thought we’d let you know about the new sunscreen recommendation labels that the Skin Cancer Foundation released this year.  They’ve made 2 important changes.  First they now require that sunscreens provide scientific proof of both UVA and UVB protection.  Second there are now 2 different Seals:  “Daily Use” for everyday incidental exposure, such as walking from your car to work, and “Active” for more extended outdoor exposure such as during sports, at picnics, etc. This image shows the new labels, and you can find more information about products that have already been approved and received one of the Seals here.
