St. Paul, Minnesota March 21, 2022

Sun50, a female founded and led sun protection clothing brand on a mission to elevate skin cancer awareness announced the launch of their crowdfunding campaign on StartEngine.  

Sun50 is redefining sun protection (What is UPF) with their ethically made-by-hand, purposeful high-fashion clothing. Designed in-house by Sun50, their styles are versatile and ideal for business, travel, and everyday living.

Dedicated to sourcing luxe eco-friendly fabrics, Sun50 fabrics provide superior UVA and UVB sun protection naturally, without chemical treatment. This means the sun protection in Sun50 apparel never washes out. Better for you and better for the planet.

 Sun50 is rooted in their mission to elevate skin cancer awareness and promote the importance of skin checks for EVERYONE

No person, ethnicity, or skin tone is skin cancer exempt. Skin cancer is one of the most common cancers, affecting one in five Americans by the age of 70. We are all part of the “have your skin checked” community. Our goal is to change human behavior,” stated Christie Covarrubias, Founder & CEO of Sun50.

Inspired by the loss of her cousin Reneé to melanoma when they were both 33 years old, Christie believes,If we had known about the importance of skin cancer prevention growing up or early skin cancer detection, it’s quite possible Reneé would be alive today.” 

Sun50 clothing is trusted by dermatologists and consumers worldwide and has donated to skin cancer related non-profits since the day they were founded in 2019.

The Sun50 team, comprised of sun protection apparel experts, is ready to expand their business and champion their skin cancer awareness mission to a broader audience.

“Sun50 is more than just a high-quality and trusted clothing brand, we are a movement. We are on a mission to save lives, inspire thoughtful living, and respect our planet,”  says Christie.
