CōTZ sponsors event aimed to set Guinness World Record for the most skin cancer screenings in one day

CōTZ sponsors event aimed to set Guinness World Record for the most skin cancer screenings in one day

With over 5 million cases diagnosed each year, skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States. However, if detected early and properly treated, the cure rate for most skin cancer is as high as 95%. 

This is why CōTZ The Healthier Sunscreen advocates for prevention and early detection. For over a decade, CōTZ has been leading the mineral sunscreen movement. Their sunscreens combine broad-spectrum protection for skin with ingredients that are clean and safe for you and the environment.

When caught early, skin cancer is highly treatable. So, in celebration of Melanoma Awareness Month, CōTZ is supporting Polka Dot Mama, a network of survivors and skin cancer organizations across the nation, to set the Guinness World Record for most screenings done in a day. On May 18th, board-certified dermatologists in North Carolina will donate their time to provide completely free screenings to anyone who attends.

With 1 in 5 Americans developing skin cancer in their lifetime, it is important to take action – not wait until it’s too late. Join CōTZ and the volunteers from Polka Dot Mama on May 18th at the Duke Health Center at Southpoint in Durham, NC. If you’ve got skin, you can help us win that world record and join in the fight against skin cancer.

About CōTZ

CōTZ was created in 2002 by a plastic surgeon whose singular mission was to create healthier sunscreens.  The result was an exceptionally elegant mineral sunscreen collection that people actually love to wear because it feels great. Our name says it all: CōTZ Contains Only Titanium dioxide and Zinc oxide.  We are committed to these mineral sunscreens, that work by reflecting harmful UVA/UVB rays away from the skin’s surface. All CōTZ sunscreens are 100% free of Chemical Sunscreens, Oils, Preservatives, Fragrances, Parabens, Gluten and Phthalates. That’s why CōTZ is The Healthier Sunscreen®.
