Wordless Wednesday…How I fell in love with UV Skinz!

I first fell in love with UV Skinz in 2008 when I reviewed the product along with my 2-year-old daughter. It was at that time that I realized sun protection is important for all, regardless of gender, race or age. My life was forever changed!


We want to know “How did you first FALL in LOVE with UV Skinz?” Was it on a hiking trip, family vacation or through a friend? Visit our Facebook page and leave a comment or post a photo and you could be one of three winners to WIN a UV Skinz brand product of your choice! Good luck!

5 Days for Darren Facebook Giveaways


To understand the foundation of UV Skinz, you must understand the legacy from which UV Skinz was born. You must understand Darren’s story.

Darren Lee Farwell was an avid outdoors-man, Husband and Father when he was diagnosed with Melanoma in 1996. Born on June 25, 1969 he succumbed to skin cancer at the age of 32. UV Skinz was born from Darren’s legacy. Rhonda wanted everyone to be able to enjoy the outdoors safely and worry-free.

Our 5 Days for Darren Giveaway is a way for us to keep his memory alive, celebrate the amazing man he was and give the gift of UV Skinz to you!

“Life truly does go on… no minute can be repeated or tucked away to use at a later time. But, there is comfort in knowing life sustains itself in memories and significant dates and events, only needing a quick thought to reflect on the past.”~Rhonda Sparks

5,000 Facebook Fans by 2012!

Over the past six years we have had the honor to touch so many lives and help people enjoy the sun worry-free with our uv-protective swim shirts. We are definitely more than just a swim shirt–UV Skinz is family, love and perseverance even in times of great difficulty. The journey from tragedy to advocacy for melanoma awareness has been unbelievable!  If tragedy hadn’t touched Rhonda’s life there wouldn’t have been the opportunity to educate or help people who have also been affected by the disease. Melanoma awareness to us is sharing personal experiences, exchanging knowledge and creating a community where everyone feels hope. With melanoma cases on the rise,  an estimated 70,230 adults in the U.S. will be diagnosed with the disease this year. It makes up only 2.3% of all skin cancers, but is responsible for 75% of skin cancer deaths. It’s not stopping and neither should we!

With the New Year upon us, our resolution at UV Skinz is to reach as many people as we can.  Melanoma awareness only works if we work together. It is our hope that UV Skinz can reach 5,000 people by 2012! Help us spread the word about smart and easy sun protection and you could WIN!
