MORRISTOWN, N.J., May 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Spain-based skincare company, ISDIN®, announces today that they are partnering with the Claire Marie Foundation and the Ulman Foundation in honor of Skin Cancer Awareness Month. For every Eryfotona Actinica® Ultralight Emulsion SPF 50+ sunscreen sold during the month of May, ISDIN will donate $5 to help support the fight against skin cancer.
"We're very excited about the partnerships that ISDIN has developed with the Claire Marie Foundation and Ulman Foundation," said Robert D'Urso, US Country Manager at ISDIN. "Both organizations share a philosophy that aligns with ISDIN's global approach to the sun, which is to go out and enjoy the sun, but to do it responsibly by wearing sun protection every single day."
According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, melanoma is the most common cancer for young adults aged 25 to 29 and the second most common form of cancer for people aged 15 to 29. It's estimated that the number of new melanoma cases diagnosed in 2019 will increase by 7.7 percent.
"It's great to see ISDIN and these foundations come together to assist dermatologists with providing information and education around sun protection and skin cancer screenings to the masses," said Dr. Eva Simmons-O'Brien, M.D., board-certified dermatologist of Simmons-O'Brien & Orlinsky in Towson, Maryland. "I highly recommend the Eryfotona Actinica Ultralight Emulsion SPF 50+ to all of my patients. Not only does it provide a high level of SPF, it is an amazing sun protection product in the US that has the ability to protect and repair your skin."
