Why Skin Health?

   
FROM SKIN CANCER TO HYGIENE RELATED SKIN DISEASES,
SKIN HEALTH IS A GLOBAL HEALTH ISSUE
THAT HAS BEEN OVERWHELMINGLY IGNORED.



1,500,000,000 PEOPLE WORLDWIDE ARE AT A RISK FOR DEVELOPING SKIN CANCER.


60,000,000+ AMERICANS WILL GET SKIN CANCER IN THEIR LIFETIME.


40 TO 60% OF LIFETIME UV EXPOSURE OCCURS BY AGE 20.


100,000,000+ PEOPLE IN THE DEVELOPING WORLD SUFFER FROM NEGLECTED SKIN DISEASES AS DIRECT RESULT OF CONTAMINATED WATER AND POOR SANITATION AND HYGIENE PRACTICES.


AND A GLOBAL SHORTAGE OF QUALIFIED DERMATOLOGISTS HINDER TREATMENT OF THESE PREVENTABLE SKIN DISEASES.
