Skin cancer often has its roots in too much sun exposure. Use these fun, simple color changing UV wristbands to remind everyone to protect themselves from over exposure to the sun.
Teach kids from a young age to always protect their skin. Have them wear this wristband out into the sun and it quickly, "magically" changes color from soft white to purple. The color change and the message If purple - PROTECT - Prevent Skin Cancer is a reminder to the wearer that when purple you are exposed to strong UV rays.
Steps to protect might include
sun screen lotion
a wide brimmed hat
clothing that covers more of your skin
staying in the shade
This SupportStore designed wristband is made of UV sensitive 100% silicon rubber, so you can wear it on the beach or in the pool. The color change effect will last for many months, if you keep your wristband out of the sun when not being worn.
The "Purple - PROTECT" wristband comes in both adult and youth sizes, and is individually bagged. Buy them for your family, or skin care clinics and dermatologists may make them available to clients as a reminder. Order 500 or more and customize this product.
Enjoy the outdoors, but please be sun smart! SupportStore.com is dedicated to doing our part to help start conversations about sun safety to prevent skin cancer.

How to select the correct size
Most adults find the "Adult 8" size is best. The "Youth 7" size is best for children up to about age 13 or adults with very small wrists.
An adult with very large wrists may find the Adult 8" is still too small, they will have to find another way to express their support of this cause - or use the wristband in a keychain or around a beverage container.
Adult Size 8" in circumference or exactly 202 mm
Youth Size 7" in circumference or exactly 180 mm

Excellent product the kids loved them because they went from white to purple in the sun and back inside it went back to white.

The children really loved these bracelets and watching them change colors out in the sun was a great reminder to reapply sunscreen. Awesome product!
Color changing in bands
March 15, 2017
My kids absolutely love these bands. I am now able to put sunscreen on them when they put the band on and I show them in the up light that it changes color. Now if the band is purple then they put sunscreen on. No more fighting.
Large enough for many adults!

Genius Idea and it works
June 14, 2013
Some sun-changing products do not change color dramatically, or they take FOREVER to change color. This wristband changes instantly to a dark purple. The deep purple color catches your eye and reminds you to wear sunscreen. It is a great reminder. Kids love it too. It's so intriguing to them. This is a genius idea and it works really well.
