Skin cancer accounts for nearly half of all cancers in the United States according to the American Cancer Society. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), the number of skin cancer cases continues to rise due in large part to unprotected exposure to the harmful rays of the sun.
Help protect your skin with these sunscreen products for every lifestyle. For broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection use a sunscreen and incorporate a moisturizer like our top-selling Dermal Repair Cream and also our staff-favorite Vitamin C+E.
At SkinMedica® we believe the most important step in preventing damage that can lead to skin cancer and extrinsic skin aging is the daily use of sunscreen. We are committed to helping stem the skin cancer epidemic by contributing a $1 donation from the sale of every SkinMedica® SPF product sold globally to fund education and awareness programs designed to prevent and detect skin cancer. You can lend your support to our efforts by purchasing any of our SPF products.
Recently we donated $100,000 to the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine. Under the direction of Richard L. Gallo, M.D., Ph.D., Chief, Division of Dermatology, UCSD is opening the Pigmented Lesion and Skin Cancer Clinic to benefit those in the San Diego community without access to skin cancer screening. In addition, SkinMedica® is supporting skin cancer prevention and detection education initiatives of non-profit organizations such as The American Melanoma Foundation and The American Cancer Society. In the third quarter of 2012, we also donated $10,000 to the American Cancer Society for every Facebook like our SkinMedica® page received.
