What's New at the Sun Safety Alliance

Fashionable Skin Care You Can Wear!
Did you know that summer weight fabrics let through an astonishing amount of the sun's damaging ultraviolet rays? Andrea Bowen of ABC's "Desperate Housewives" and Kathryn Morris of CBS's "Cold Case" will be spokespersons for a new UV-Protective t-shirt line being launched by the Sun Safety Alliance (SSA), in collaboration with the Entertainment Industries Council, Inc. (EIC). SSA has teamed up with AYANA Apparel to provide fashion-forward UV-Protective t-shirts that protect your skin while maintaining your sense of style. Proceeds from this t-shirt line will be donated to SSA for educational programs to promote skin cancer prevention (using code SSA09).
