Sun safety

Reduce your skin cancer risk

Sun safety

Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. Each year over 2000 Australians die from this almost entirely preventable disease.

Fortunately, being SunSmart is a simple and effective way to reduce your risk of developing skin cancer.

Cancer Council provides guidance on how much sun you need and how to protect yourself from getting too much sun exposure. We also offer a range of high quality, affordable sun protection products to help keep you safe from the sun's damaging UV rays.
