Kimberly-Clark, SunHealth to protect kids from sunburn

January 30, 2006

Kimberly-Clark Corp. is partnering with SunHealth Solutions to provide free samples of SunSignals UV Sensors on Huggies Little Swimmers disposable swimpants packages beginning in April. The sensors will provide parents with a way to detect and monitor their kids' exposure to ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation. SunSignals UV Sensors are small, self-adhesive patches that can be applied to a child's skin or clothing. As a child's exposure to the sun increases, the sensor changes color from yellow to deep orange and the little sun designs within the sensor disappear, signaling that it is time to take protective action, such as apply more sunscreen, put on protective clothing, or seek shade.
