Sunscreen Mist to Appear on ABC’s “Shark Tank” Friday, May 8 at 8 p.m. EST
DETROIT, May 4, 2015 – In recognition of Skin Cancer Awareness Month and Melanoma Monday, the creators of Michigan-based Sunscreen Mist, the world leader of automated patented sunscreen-spray stations and booths, remind consumers about the importance of diligent sun protection in promoting health. Sunscreen Mist will appear on ABC’s “Shark Tank” on Friday, May 8 at 8 p.m. EST—perfectly situated to further raise awareness about this important health issue. Sunscreen Mist CEO Josh Kaplan made the announcement.
Tony Fayne, the president and founder of Sunscreen Mist, was inspired to create these innovative sunscreen-spray machines after a close friend was diagnosed with Melanoma. “I experienced how life changing this disease can be, not only for the patient, but also for friends and family. It’s a difficult process that too many people have to go through,” said Fayne. “I knew there had to be a way to increase sun protection behaviors by making sunscreen application easier and access greater, and that is how this concept was born.”
As a member of the board of directors for nonprofit organization Kids Kicking Cancer, Kaplan is equally committed to the mission of preventing melanoma through widespread education. “I look forward to the day when sunscreen application becomes second nature, like brushing your teeth,” stated Kaplan. Those who have or previously had any type of cancer are at an elevated risk of developing skin cancer in their lifetime. We are confident that the proliferation of Sunscreen Mist products will help achieve that future by making skin protection quick, easy and convenient. The opportunity during this critical awareness-raising month enables us to spread this important message to a worldwide audience.”
Sunscreen Mist produces patented sunscreen-spray machines, including fully automated booths (similar to spray tan machines) and self-serve portable spray stations that quickly and conveniently protect people from the suns dangerous rays with the FDA appropriate amount of sunscreen. The booths and stations are ideal amenities for outdoor venues such as hotel pools, theme parks, golf clubs, campgrounds, beaches, and anywhere else people spend significant time in the sun. They are designed to accept payment in the form of coins, cash, credit card and can be customized to work with room keys, wristbands and other wireless technologies.
