CEO and co-founder, Christie, grew up in California during a time when wearing sunscreen was optional and sunburns were plentiful. Childhood summers were spent on the beaches of Lake Tahoe alongside her cousin, Renee, sunning on floatable rafts. In their early 30’s, Renee lost her life to melanoma, which developed from a mole on her back. Christie is well aware it could have been her too. Had they known about skin cancer prevention, it’s quite possible Renee would be alive today.
With Renee in mind Sun50 was launched. The Skin Cancer Foundation says that UPF clothing is the first line of defense for skin cancer. This is why we work with the finest team of quality assurance experts in the world to ensure every one of our premium fabrics is thoroughly UV-tested to the highest standard before they arrive to our cut & sew team in Los Angeles, California.
We are certain that our sustainably sourced, socially impactful, easy to wear, and fashion-forward UPF pieces will become your trusted favorites.
