TanOrganic Donates Vital Skin Scanners
16th July 2015
TanOrganic, the world’s first and only Eco-Certified self-tanning brand, donated five skin scanners to the Marie Keating Foundation. These scanners are crucial in detecting unseen skin damage and highlighting the damaging effect overexposure to UV rays from the sun and sunbeds can have on the skin.
Besides causing premature ageing, these damaging UV rays can lead to skin cancer, which is the most common cancer in Ireland and instances are rising each year, affecting both men and women. Using the skin scanners will help the Marie Keating nurses highlight the need to use a high factor SPF and remind patients to stay out of the sun.
The skin scanners, donated by TanOrganic, will be used in these mobile units to offer the further service of checking skin for any signs of sun damage. Costing around €1,000 each, the donation of equipment will make an incredible difference to the charity enabling them to continue the amazing work they do across Ireland. This donation is part of the global initiative set up by TanOrganic to donate to cancer charities worldwide and educate people about the dangers of overexposure to the sun through their #sunsmart #safetanning campaign.
Noelle O’Connor, Founder of TanOrganic said: “I am incredibly passionate about the importance of promoting our #safetanning #sunsmart campaign and am proud to be supporting the Marie Keating Foundation, helping them to raise awareness of cancer throughout Ireland. I hope the skin scanners will prove to be invaulable and help to save even more lives.”
