Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. More than one million skin cancers are diagnosed annually.

Since its founding in 1979, The Skin Cancer Foundation has set the standard for educating the public and the medical profession about skin cancer, its prevention by means of sun protection, and the need for early detection and prompt, effective treatment. The Skin Cancer Foundation is the only international organization devoted solely to combating the world’s most common cancer, now occurring at epidemic levels. More than a million new cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in the United States every year.

The Foundation’s mission is to decrease the incidence of the disease by means of public and professional education, medical training, and research.

Each year there are more new cases of skin cancer than the combined incidence of cancers of the breast, prostate, lung and colon. One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of a lifetime.

The Foundation believes that tanning as a life priority is over. It is important to look for products that have earned The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation. Click here for: A Downloadable PDF Seal of Recommendation List.
