Golfersskin Sunscreen to Support National Sun Protection Initiative
Sun SafeTee Program Welcomes Sponsor Support from Golfersskin
“Sun SafeTee is extremely pleased that Golfersskin will help champion our efforts to educate golfers on the importance of skin cancer prevention,”
According to Wishner, in 2011 alone more that 2 million skin cancers will be diagnosed in the U.S. and 12,000 individuals will die from melanoma, a deadly form of skin cancer. Experts believe, since golfers spend a significant amount of time in the sun they run a higher risk of developing skin cancer than the general population.
“Golfersskin is delighted to partner up with the Sun Safe team” shared Ben Steward, president of Quiver Distribution, the U.S distributor of Golfersskin. “Education is the biggest hurdle in skin cancer prevention and Sun SafeTee is doing an exceptional job in getting the message out. From day-one the team at Golfersskin knew we wanted to ‘give back’ and Sun SafeTee has proven to be exactly the initiative we want to get behind.”

Since then, we have made the commitment to educate golfers on the dangers of unprotected sun exposure. We have worked diligently to develop a golf-specific range of sunscreens that perform – evidenced by the fast rise in Golfersskin products being utilized by professional golfers, and now, by more than 80 Tour players. Proudly manufactured in New Zealand – Golfersskin products are rigorously tested in one of the harshest sun environments in the world and have earned the highest sweat/water resistance ratings achievable in each of the tests taken and with complete UVA/UVB protection.
