Solartex Sun Gear Now Offers Natural, Chemical-Free Sunscreens to Compliment Their Wide Range of Rash Guards and Swim Shirts

Just in time for spring, Solartex Sun Gear, Inc. is pleased to announce its new line of all-natural, chemical-free sunscreens.

    RICHMOND, VA, April 10, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Just in time for spring, Solartex Sun Gear, Inc. is pleased to announce its new line of all-natural, chemical-free sunscreens.

Co-founded by Lisa Dewey and Laurie Whitman, the Virginia-based Solartex has long set the industry standard for state-of-the-art protection from the sun. Today, Solartex is the premier source for SPF Clothing, providing rash guards and plus size swim shirts for men and women, along with kid's swim shirts and toddler rash guards. The clothing's 50+SPF sun protection is great for both children and adults, with sizes ranging from baby / infant to kids to plus size 8x.

The new line of sunscreen is in keeping with Solartex's tradition. The sunscreens are free of many of the toxins found in common drugstore sunscreens; safe sun block for adults, kids and babies. It's one more innovative offering from a company that has been promoting child safety and better health awareness since Dewey and Whitman joined forces to launch in 1998.

"We started Solartex to provide Australian UV swimwear to customers in the U.S.," Dewey said. "I wanted the best for my kids. I want the best for any Solartex customer."

Solartex offers a variety of sunscreens including mineral based Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide sunscreens by Blue Lizard, Badger and Mexitan - Tropical Sands. For 2012, Solartex has added dermatologist recommended Cotz sunscreens. There's also sunscreen for sensitive faces and skin, face sticks, sunblock by Solrx and lip balms. The selection of natural sunblocks and organic sunscreens include Badger, Cotz and Tropical Sands (Mexitan), which are safe and effective without harsh chemicals. Solartex provides face, lip, and bug protection with its natural, chemical-free sunscreens.

These chemical free sunscreens are also highly rated by the Environmental Working Group in their 2011 Sunscreen Guide of the safest and best sunscreens. After reviewing the evidence, EWG "determined that mineral sunscreens have the best safety profile of today's choices. They are stable in sunlight and do not appear to penetrate the skin. They offer UVA protection, which is sorely lacking in most of today's sunscreen products." Offering the safest and most effective mineral based natural sunscreens is part of Solartex's continued effort to get the word out about child safety and make it easier for parents to protect themselves and their kids. The firm has gained recognition as well, with positive news stories about its SPF swimwear and flotation swimsuits for children.
