UV protection is vital
Almost all research shows that too much UV radiation from the sun is damaging to people’s
health, and can cause various types of cancer, including skin cancer. In recent years, skin
cancer has become the most frequently occurring type of cancer in the Netherlands. If children
up to and including the age of 8 are badly burned by the sun one or more times, when they are
older their risk of developing skin cancer will be twice as high. Since the ozone layer is becoming
thinner and thinner, the risk is increasing. More and more people in Europe are becoming aware
of this risk.Nevertheless, the sales of UV protective clothing are relatively low. UV-Fashions is
set to change this.
UV-Fashions: a mission
UV-Fashions is an initiative of Jan Willem van der Sterre from the Netherlands (photo). Sadly,
a few years ago his father died from skin cancer. Shortly after his father’s death, his sister had
her first baby. In the knowledge that they should protect their child properly from the sun, Jan
Willem’s sister and her husband sought the ultimate protection and thus discovered the baby suits
by the Australian brand, Stingray. However, after a great deal of searching, they could not find
these suits for sale in a single shop in the Netherlands. With that disappointment in mind, Jan Willem
contacted the manufacturer in Australia in order to obtain the importership for this attractive product
for the Benelux countries.
From that time, Jan Willem decided to devote himself to expanding the supply of UV protective
swimwear and casual wear in Europe. A part of the profits of UV-Fashions will go to the
UV Protection Foundation (which is in the process of being established).
