Summer camp and running around in sun showers go hand in hand. And when you’re spending long, active days outdoors, you’ll need to reapply your sunblock. But how will you know when it’s time to reapply? That’s where SPOTMYUV® comes in.
These Hypoallergenic Stickers go on your skin and, the same as your skin, they react to sunlight and sunscreen. When the time comes that you ought to reapply your sunscreen, it changes color: transparent when your protection is working and purple when your layer of sunscreen loses its strength.
Graduates of the University of Waterloo's Nanotechnology Engineering program and overflowing with a passion for sun protection, Andrew Martinko, Chad Sweeting and Derek Jouppi co-invented the detection stickers. With loved ones in their lives who’ve been impacted by skin cancer, these guys had a burning need to bring a product to market that would inform someone when it’s time to reapply sunscreen.
Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the world and almost 100% preventable when sunscreen is used correctly. Unfortunately, people use sunscreen less than half as much as they should! These Detection Stickers definitely help!
A rather clever product to help increase our behavior and habits when it comes to sun safety, SPOTMYUV® became the latest brand name in the line of products from Dig It®, a Canadian company founded in 2008. When a successful pitch for these Detection Stickers resulted in a deal with Kevin O’Leary (one of the sharks from Shark Tank), SPOTMYUV® was born.
“As a mother of three,” says Claudia Harvey, CEO of Dig It®. “I am committed to bringing products to the market that help people take care of themselves and their families. There has been no other product introduced in recent years that is more important for those who care about their sun safety than SPOTMYUV®.”
Check out the Detection Stickers from SPOTMYUV® available right here at Everything Summer Camp. Be sure that you stay safe in the summer sun this season and wear your sun protection sticker to know when your sunblock layer is losing its power. As always, thanks for reading, Camp Fans! Till next time.
