UVSunSense Allows For More Accurate Application of Suntan Lotions, Reducing Risk of Deadly Skin Cancer and Long-Term Sun Damage

May is National Skin Cancer Detection & Prevention Month

NEW YORK, April 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The UVSunSense wristband, a new, easy-to-use tool that helps people avoid overexposure to harmful ultraviolet radiation from the sun, is now available and will soon help families all across America reduce the risk of skin cancer and painful sun damage.

The UVSunSense wristband is a sun-sensitive gauge. Wrapped around a user's wrist, the wearer then applies sunscreen to their body -- as well as the wristband -- before going about their outdoor activity. The band then changes color to let the wearer know it's time to reapply sunscreen -- or to get out of the sun. It's really that simple!

UVSunSense is designed to work with sunscreens of SPF 15 or higher, and will change color at different times depending on the SPF level. UVSunSense is designed to be used in salt, fresh or chlorinated water, and in showers -- thus giving an accurate reading after outdoor activities like swimming, running or just playing in the backyard.

"Right now, the only way to know if your sunscreen is working is if you don't get sunburn -- and by then, it's too late," said Dr. Michael Eidelman, a dermatologist at St. Vincent's Hospital Manhattan. "The UVSunSense wristband takes the guesswork out of outdoor recreation and gives you accurate, real-time information that will help keep you and your family safe and healthy."
