Sun Protection Is An Essential Part Of Daily Life. #SPF365
Sun protection needs to be become an essential part of everyday life! There are staggering statistics from Skincancer.org and CDC.gov about skin cancer and the use of SPF by Americans that are a cause for great concern!
In observing the people in our world, we found that most don’t wear SPF at all and those that do, wear it when planning to spend time being in direct sun light. This made us dig into the subject and we found, statistics supported our assumptions. This is why we created the #SPF365 Campaign!
We created this campaign to improve awareness for wearing SPF Daily! We created the #SPF365 Pendant with Be The Good Collection as a beautiful reminder to wear #SPF365 days a year.
We want to teach people to use sun protection every day. Rain or shine, inside or out! If you’re exposed to day light, you’re exposed to harmful uva and uvb rays!
We encourage skin care professionals to get the #SPF365 Pendant and showcase their commitment to sun protection!

Sun Protection Facts From Skincancer.Org + CDC.Gov
We want to thank Skincancer.org and CDC.gov for their statistics on skin cancer and the use of SPF / Sunscreen / Sun protection. These numbers are staggering. To realize that only 10% of high school students report wearing sun protection while 23% of your lifetime sun exposure happens before the age of 18 means that 1/4 of your uva and uvb rays are totally unprotected!
The number of senior citizens diagnosed with skin cancer is huge! This is especially distressing when you know that the skin’s ability to heal and regenerate at such an advanced age is diminished.
We can do better! So we created a long list of 20 lifestyle products that you can incorporate into your EVERYDAY life so that you are protected!
