Stuff That Matters
While we generally don’t do much, when we do something… it matters.

The Pipeline to a Cure campaign was created to herald the discovery by Australian researchers who found that cystic fibrosis children that surfed had significantly healthier lungs. Doctors determined that inhaling saltwater mist has a powerful effect on rehydrating the lining of the lungs. Sun Bum is proud to support Pipeline to a Cure events in Florida.

Since its founding in 1979, The Skin Cancer Foundation (SCF) has set the standard for educating the public and the medical profession about skin cancer, its prevention by means of sun protection, the need for early detection, and prompt, effective treatment. It is the only international organization devoted solely to combating the world’s most common cancer, now occurring at epidemic levels.
Sun Bum continues its partnership with the SCF to develop and thoroughly test all of its sunscreen products to ensure our customers are safely protected from the sun.For skin cancer facts and more info, go to www.SkinCancer.org
