Eclipse Sun Products Solve the Sunscreen Dilemma
Colorado-based Company Carries an Innovative Line of Sun Wear That Protects Against Harmful UV Rays Without Any Risky Side Effects
Sometimes “solutions” can just cause more problems then there were to begin with. Take sun, skin cancer, and sunscreen for example. While skin cancer is a serious issue that should not be taken lightly by any means, it doesn’t mean just any old way of preventing it will do or won’t have its own side effects – no matter how popular that means may be. When it comes to sunscreen and the potentially negatives outcomes it can result in, we realize that there are things we know and things we don’t know. However, sunscreen’s detrimental effects – not only on the human body but also on the environment as well – are being studied and more is being learned by the day. While sunscreen may come in handy in some circumstances such as when no other options are available, there are still better, safer, and more effective alternatives out there. That’s where Eclipse Sun Products comes in. Not ones to point out the flaws in something yet neglect to offer a better solution, Eclipse carries a protective line of sun sleeves, sun scarves, and sun ponchos that effectively protect wearers without any doubts as to their potentially harmful effects.
Typical sunscreen on the market today generally includes a cocktail of chemical ingredients including oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate and octinoxate while their mineral (or sometimes referred to as “natural”) counterparts use zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide. A handful of products also will combine zinc oxide with chemical filters. The Environmental Working Group released a report detailing many of the issues that sunscreen use presents. From skin allergies to hormone disruption to some chemicals even showing up in breast milk, there is great concern over immediate and long term effects for sunscreen users. Of course, many other issues related to sunscreen are still unknown and have not been thoroughly investigated yet or looked at over long-term studies.
Since the jury is still out on the safety and effectiveness of sun lotions, we just don’t know how well they protect us and to what degree they burden our bodies with chemicals. Clothing is the best way to protect oneself from harmful UV rays. Eclipse Sun Products are an excellent option for many reasons. For one, they work! In fact, they’ve even been approved by The Melanoma International Foundation. On top of this, they are affordable, convenient, easy-to-use and have other benefits such as cooling the body. The patented Cocona 37.5 Technology used by Eclipse’s products have active particles permanently embedded in the fibers which have a chemical structure that absorbs UV light and provides natural UPF 50+ protection and the protection does not wash out.
“Whether it’s our Sun Sleeves, Sun Gloves, Sun Poncho or Sun Scarves, we are proud to carry a line of products that is safe for adults, children, and the planet,” shared Eclipse Owner Peter Champe. “As we move away from the ‘cover our bodies in chemicals’ mindset and adopt a safer, more conscious approach to protecting our skin from the sun, Eclipse Sun Products hopes to be at the forefront of the movement.”
