I look into skin cancer a lot – after my diagnosis and my kids swimwear business, I really have to stay on top of it! Skin cancer is scary, and today I wanted to jump on our kids swimwear blog to let you know something ... Most people don’t realize that more than 3.5 million skin cancers in over two million people are diagnosed each year or that the incidence of melanoma in teenagers has increased by 100% over the past 10 years. Did you hear that!?! MELANOMA IN OUR TEENAGERS HAS INCREASED BY 100% in 10 years! How scary. :( Swimsuit time around the pool or beach can be a particularly intense UV time because all the sun’s rays are bouncing around off of the water or sand. Getting your kids and children to wear sun protection kids swimwear is there for extremely important! We strongly preach … “No hat, no sun shirt, no play!” I founded SwimZip sun protection kids swimwear with my brother, Berry, because we truly want to help turn these skin cancer statistics around. Our with our sun protection, UPF 50+ UV protection swimwear is a simple and adorable way to help keep kids sun safe. Having found skin cancer on my back, and having the doctor question if it we should really test it, I know it can be hard to get people to listen. But I am listening! I am here to help you and your little babes stay UV sun safe. Did you know that 95% of skin cancers are preventable! SwimZip is on a mission to develop awareness of UV protection kids swimwear and how easy it can be! Thank you for joining us on our journey to grow the sun protection kids swimwear industry...

- A white cotton t-shirt offers a UPF of 7, and only 3 UPF when wet (UV SwimZip Sunwear Line offers UPF 50+)
- It is recommended to wait minimum of 30 minutes after sunscreen application before going outdoors to get maximum protection
- It is recommended you reapply sunscreen every 40-80 minutes (more frequently if sweating or playing in water - this is exactly what they do at summer camp).
- One severe sunburn as a child doubles their risk of developing melanoma later in life.
