BALTIMORE, April 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sunscreen Bands™, a new product that has hit retail shelves, is going to change the way families practice sun safety this summer. The wristbands, designed for both adults and children, detect UVA and UVB exposure and change color to indicate when it's time to reapply sunscreen and seek shade. Sunscreen is directly applied to the bands and the skin. The bands start off beige, transition to dark purple when activated by direct sunlight, and then turn light purple (lavender) to remind users it's time to reapply sunscreen. When the band turns cream (or light yellow), the wearer has reached their maximum sun exposure for the day based on the SPF in their sunscreen. Sunscreen Bands™ have received The National Parenting Center Seal of Approval and are approved by Parent Tested Parent Approved as the bands are compliant with the Consumer Products Safety Commission regulations.
Nontoxic, Sunscreen Bands™ work with all sunscreens SPF 15 or higher and are designed for any outdoor activities, wet or dry, in both pools or saltwater. One size fits all and each band is good for one day use – even if the wearer goes from indoors to outdoors frequently. Created to work alongside SPF sunscreen, the bands measure UV levels in any location regardless of the climate or weather. They are perfect for outdoor activities such as swimming, gardening, sports, picnics, camping, boating, walking, etc.
"Skin cancer is on the rise and as a father, I'm always concerned about my children getting too much sun," said Andrew Levine, CEO of JADS. "Sunscreen bands take the guess work out of determining when to reapply sunscreen and when to head indoors or under an umbrella. Sunscreen application isn't particularly fun for kids or adults, but my kids enjoy watching the bands change color. They even tell me when I need to reapply."
Sunscreen Bands™, created by JADS International, are currently being sold at CVS, Toys R Us, Babies R Us and Bed Bath & Beyond. Bands are also sold in packs of 10 on the website www.sunscreenbands.com.
