Goodyear, AZ, November 15, 2016… SKIN Sunscreen™, providers of a premium sunscreen product specifically designed for the golf athlete and their families, has announced a new partnership with coLLo™ Apparel. coLLo Apparel recently introduced a new line of high performance, UPF 50+ sunblocking men’s golf shirts.
“Both coLLo Apparel and SKIN Sunscreen have a mission to protect golfers against sun damage,” said Jessica Folino, General Manager/Partner, SKIN Sunscreen. “This partnership gives us the opportunity to work together to offer golfers more options for quality sun protection, while increasing their awareness of skin cancer and UV damage. We are pleased to partner with this innovative new company.”
As part of the partnership, the companies will promote each other’s products on their websites and will work together to increase golfers’ awareness of skin cancer and highlight the importance of prevention and early detection.
“We are excited to partner with SKIN Sunscreen,” said Tom Hurst, coLLo founder, and president. “We share a common goal of working to tackle and prevent skin cancer and our partnership benefits golfers by providing information and products to help them protect themselves from the harmful effects of UV radiation. It’s a win-win situation for everyone.”
Featuring certified UPF 50+ sunblocking, moisture wicking, four-way coLLoStretch™ fabrics, and its patent pending high collar, coLLo is exclusively focused on making UV protection golf clothing. The coLLo men’s golf shirt line is available in three different collections:
• Cypress offers maximum athletic performance in a year-round dry fleck jersey fabric, available in athletic and relaxed fit models.
• Sawgrass utilizes coLLo’s luxurious double-dyed and lightly brushed fabric offered in athletic and relaxed fit models.
• Princeville is offered in an athletic fit and features lightweight brushed fabric made from 15 environmentally friendly recycled plastic bottles.
Created to block 95 percent of the sun’s damaging UV rays, the design and fabric of the coLLo golf shirt line can help players get the most from their game with unequaled sun protection and maximum comfort. Sold through golf pro shops and retailers, coLLo shirts can be embroidered with a custom golf club logo. They are also available for direct consumer purchase on the company’s website.
SKIN Sunscreen has been carefully developed as a premium preventative lotion formulation that is oxybenzone-free, non-greasy, sweat resistant and water resistant for up to 80 minutes. Uniting the company’s resources in a quest to spare others the pain and loss associated with the insidious health threat of skin cancer, SKIN Sunscreen is proudly promoted as the optimal wellness preventative in a healthy daily hygiene routine.
As SKIN Sunscreen demonstrated the need for awareness for sunscreen to young golfers and their families, it became apparent that this proactive measure – applying sunscreen — is every bit as important to the outdoor athlete as is the warm-up on the range or stretching before a round of golf. In fact, sunscreen is essential to lifelong enjoyment of any outdoor sport – but especially important for the golfer, given the number of hours played under the sun.
SKIN Sunscreen and coLLo Apparel both provided products for the recent 11th Annual TEEITUP Celebrity Golf Classic benefiting the WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT & FOLDS OF HONOR which was held November 7, 2016 at Saticoy CC in Somis, CA.
The Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) helps thousands of injured warriors returning home from the current conflicts and provides assistance to their families. The mission of the Folds of Honor is to stand in the financial gap of the more than one million dependents adversely affected by war, providing educational scholarships to the children and spouses of those killed or disabled while serving our nation.
“We were pleased to be a part of the TEEITUP Celebrity Golf Classic benefiting such wonderful organizations,” added Folino. “This venue provided a great opportunity to introduce golfers to our sun protection products and to educate them about the benefits of proper skin protection both on and off the golf course.”
