CATCH is proud to announce its recent partnership with Blue Lizard© Australian Sunscreen. Blue Lizard© has been ranked as a top sunscreen by the Environmental Working Group and is the brand most recommended by pediatricians, dermatologists and moms for the following reasons:
- Blue Lizard© utilizes the highest quality of ingredients to assure that users are always protected in the sun
- Blue Lizard© uses a clinically proven, broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection in a mineral-based, water-resistant, SPF 30+ formulation
- Blue Lizard© has a patented BPA-free Smart Bottle™ that changes colors in the presence of harmful UV rays to remind you to cover up
Through this partnership, Blue Lizard will be supplying sunscreen in support of CATCH’s dissemination efforts of Ray and the Sunbeatables™: A Sun Safety Curriculum for Preschoolers, developed by The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. Blue Lizard is providing sunscreen for approximately 2,000 children in 150 classrooms across 30 different sites during the summer months. Additionally, children will be taught vital sun protection concepts through the Sunbeatables™ preschool curriculum such as using sunscreen SPF 30 and lip balm, wearing protective clothing, hats, and sunglasses, finding and playing in the shade, and remembering peak sun hours (10:00 AM to 4:00 PM) when the sun is directly overhead, shadows are shorter, and UV rays are more harmful.
Teachers at last week’s Sun Safety training in Austin were excited to bring the color changing sunscreen home to children, who they knew would be thrilled by the special bottles. They were equally excited that the sunscreen donations will keep the proven sun safety curriculum free of cost.
Research shows that an estimated 1 in 5 people will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. Anyone, regardless of skin color, can develop skin cancer, including the most serious type, melanoma. In order to decrease cancer risk, it is important to protect one’s skin against harmful ultraviolet rays. Blue Lizard© not only protects against UVB rays, but also against UVA rays which cause sun damage, an ability that not all sunscreens possess.
