Last Day To Enter: Giveaway – UV Skinz

Mompreneur Rhonda Sparks is the creator of UV Skinz – sun protective swim shirts as seen right here on Eden Mahoney, one of Marcia Cross’ twins. Rhonda created the company after her husband Darren, who was only 32-years-old, died from skin cancer. Amidst her grief, Rhonda researched skin cancer and learned that just one severe sunburn during a child’s first 15 years could double the chance of developing skin cancer as an adult.

Rhonda’s loss inspired her to create UV Skinz, sun protective swim shirts that carry a UPF rating of 50+, which block out over 98% of the sun’s harmful rays, protecting delicate skin from damaging sunburns. Sunscreen isn’t always enough, is often used incorrectly, and may be irritating to some skin types. UV Skinz use breathable fabrics that are silky soft to the touch and have no chemicals, irritating seams, or appliqués that may bother the skin.

Marcia Cross isn’t the only celeb mom dressing her kids in this specialized protective gear. Tori Spelling received the Flutter/6months and Butterfly Bloomers and Sharky-LS/2 for her children Liam and Stella. Natalie Morales received the Sharky shirt, Sharky baby bloomers (both in 6mos) and Seth in size 4. Charlie Sheen’s newborn twin boys received the baby Seth (blue tie-dye) and navy bloomers and Matthew McConaughey’s little guy, Levi, received the Seth (tie-dye) as well.

  1. I like the Seth tye-die for babies and the matching baby bloomers!
    It’s so hard to find something for infants…my son will be 4 months old when we go to Reno and I want to be able to take him outside but keep his baby skin safe!

  2. My husband found out he had skin cancer at age 33 and had it removed while I was still in the hospital from giving birth to our 2nd child. We were very lucky and take sun protection very seriously.. My boys would love the shark camo combo.

  3. My favorite item at UV Skinz is the Limited Aloha Combos! specially that brown one, love the color choice and the fabric looks light and protective.

  4. Jen R: I love the tye dye ones…for some reason, I cannot get my email registered. How else can I get it to you in a confidential way?

  5. Oops! Didn’t realize I had to log in….. So here’s the repost with my email address:

    I call my little girl my butterfly. So of course I love the flutter design.

  6. I love the your products. The kids camo play hat is soooo cute. The dallas green navy camo UV short sleeves is adorable. I have a little boy so partial to the little boy ones 🙂

  7. We just came back from Florida with our 6 month old and wish I had seen these before we left! Depsite our best efforts to keep her shaded and sunscreened, her little chubby arms still got a little red!

  8. Now it is not even giving me the option to register…before it was but the secret code to make sure I was not spam never took. Oh well, hope you guys work out the kinks! Still love the pink tye dye ones!! Jen R

  9. Thank you, I think it now works…thank you so much for the advice! Still loving the pink tye dye as well as most of your site!!

  10. My favorite is the Seth blue tie-dye shirt size 4 for my son. It would be great to use in our pool this summer as well as for a trip to the ocean.

  11. i love this idea! my daughter suffered a burn on 3/4 of her arm and these would be amazing since she has to either wear a homemade sleeve or a longsleeve shirt in the nice weather to protect her from the sun.. these.. ALL OF THESE.. look amazing!! i cant name just one favorite because they are all beneficial.

  12. Good to know there’s a product to protect my little guy from the harsh sun. With the Sharky in size 6 months, he can storm the beach in style!

  13. It is so hard to find long sleeve skins for little ones here in New England. I love the long sleeve Casey sky blue/navy in size 4. Thanks for calling my attention to this company.

  14. I think it is really fixed now–thank you! So sorry to take up so many comments with issues last week. We still love the pink tye dye…and the hats!
