Orange County, California (PRWEB) May 13, 2015

In the world of lotions, sticks, creams and balms, SPF Addict offers a non- sticky, non-greasy alternative to daily sun protection – UPF 50+ sunscreen clothing. SPF Addict, manufacturer of high- quality, California-made sun protective clothing, is donating $ 2.00 of every purchase during the month of May to the Melanoma Research Foundation in honor of National Melanoma/Skin Cancer Awareness Month.

As a registered nurse specializing in the cosmetic dermatology field, SPF Addict’s president and designer Marina Arnold, R.N. has treated countless patients, young and old, with sun-damaged skin. “I realized early in my career the importance of pro-active sun protection needs to go beyond the scope of just lotions. Sunscreen lotions serve only a small role in whole-body sun protection, protective clothing is another extremely valuable and effective tool in sun protection,” says Arnold, R.N.

Manufactured with Tencel Sun® fabric made from eucalyptus wood; this fiber is extremely soft, durable, eco-friendly, biodegradable and ideal for sensitive skin. SPF Addicts fabrics are independently tested for a UPF rating of 50+, blocking 98% of harmful sun rays that can cause skin cancer and premature aging; even after 40 wet and chlorinated launderings.

This ultra-soft poncho effortlessly covers in this one-size fits all timeless style. Flattering to most body types; can be worn from the beach to a party. (California Dreamin’ Poncho MSRP: $ 60; available in plum, black, taupe, aqua, and mango)

Beach to Street – From chillin’ on the beach to working out, SPF Addict’s Jewels Top offers full coverage in a breathable, stretchy top which features natural wicking to pull moisture away from the body. Designed with a fitted silhouette and hip-length cut, this long sleeve top is accented with five vertical buttons along the décolleté and wrist and thumbhole cutouts for extra hand coverage. (Jewels Top MSRP: $ 41; available in black, beige, and white)

Perfect, Every Time – Sun protection can be as simple as wearing your Donna’s Perfect Dress. Featuring a boat shaped neckline for maximum décolleté protection, an adjustable single button sleeve, and a scoop-cut mid-length skirt. Lightweight and wrinkle-free, makes this truly the perfect little dress. (Donna’s Perfect Dress MSRP: $ 55; available in black, white, gray/white graphic stipe, and black/white graphic stripe)
