Avoid the Burn: First Sunscreen to Earn the Melanoma International Foundation Seal of Approval Expands Distribution Throughout Northern California
Date:6/4/2009

Specially formulated for sensitive skin and to block UVA and UVB rays, Sierra Summits now available at Raley's stores

RENO, Nev., June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Sunscreens are not created equal.

The sunscreen, the first to earn the Melanoma International Foundation Seal of Approval, is also available throughout the U.S. via specialty retailers and its online web site, www.sierrasummits.com.

In-store demonstrations will provide information about effective skin protection while offering resources for consumers concerned about sun damage. Complimentary sunblock samples will also be available to consumers who seek a hypoallergenic, fragrance-free sunblock that offers a light and residue-free feel.
