Help spread the word during Sun Awareness Week

Health care professionals continue to play a critical role in educating the public on sun safety.

That’s why we’re supporting HCPs this Sun Awareness Week by providing them with the tools they need to help communicate to the public that:

  • There is no such thing as a once a day sunscreen and it should be reapplied every two hours.
  • The higher the SPF, the greater the sun protection, as over our lifetime sun damages our dermal and epidermal cells.
  • Sunscreen doesn’t generally result in a Vitamin D deficiency, and those that regularly apply sunscreen have sufficient levels of sunlight exposure to allow for adequate vitamin D production.
  • Allergic reactions to parabens are rare, and they help protect the sunscreen from microbial contamination.
  • Exposure to UVA & UVB rays may cause skin cancer, and even on cloudy days sunscreen should be reapplied.

With the rates of non-melanoma skin cancer in the UK increasing faster than the rest of Europe, SunSense is on a mission to dispel the common myths associated with sun exposure.

We’re offering FREE SunSense myth busting packs to help Healthcare professionals to raise awareness of skin cancer and educate patients about the dangers of excessive exposure to dangerous UV rays.


In the SunSense campaign pack, you’ll find everything you need to host your own SunSense Sun Awareness event, including leaflets, posters, infographics, bunting UV wrist bands and samples.

To get your hands on a pack contact your local Crawford Healthcare Territory Business Manager or email 

Follow us on Facebook,  Twitter and Instagram to share your event pictures using #SunAwarenessWeek and as a thank you we will send you a little treat.
