All of the Australian team which includes Sochi Silver Medalist, David Morris, Current World Champion Laura Peel & 2013 World Championship Medalist Danielle Scott, World Cup Winner Renee McElduff and Olympian Samantha Wells are appreciative of the support being provided by EltaMD, a highly trusted sun and skin care brand produced in the USA and sold internationally.
This relationship will provide EltaMD an opportunity to continue to spread the word about the importance of sun protection, while at the same time providing very protective products to a group of young high achieving athletes who are putting their lives on hold while representing their country in an exceptional way.
EltaMD in the USA is only sold to physicians for them to then sell to their patients, and is the largest Sun Screen brand sold by Doctors. Parent company, Swiss-American Products began over 25 years ago as a producer of skin and wound care products sold to hospitals and other acute care facilities. This acute knowledge of the treatment and protection of the skin, was applied to the design and launch EltaMD in 2007.
The “Flying Kangaroos” are presently in Utah for Summer Water Jump training, which concludes in early October. A winter preparation camp is scheduled for Finland in November, leading into the opening World Cup competition of the new season which kicks off in China during mid-December. During January and February the squad will head back to the USA for World Cup stops in Lake Placid, NY, and Deer Valley, UT, followed by more competitions in Russia and Europe.
Sun protection has been at the core of the EltaMD line including thirteen different products to protect the skin from UVA and UVB rays. EltaMD broad-spectrum sunscreens contain zinc oxide, a mineral compound, to protect skin against UVA and UVB rays. Physicians and skin care professionals recommend EltaMD sunscreens formulated for every skin type and lifestyle. Cosmetically elegant and photostable, EltaMD sunscreens are fragrance-free, sensitivity-free, paraben-free and noncomedogenic.
EltaMD skin care products include deep yet gentle cleansers and innovative moisturizers for normal, sensitive, and troubled skin. EltaMD specialty formulations help correct problems and maintain skin health over time. EltaMD post-procedure products promote skin healing and comfort after skin rejuvenation treatments that help reverse the appearance of aging and sun damage.
Michael Kennedy, Chief Executive Officer of the responsible National Federation, Ski and Snowboard Australia was excited to hear the news of the partnership with EltaMD. “It’s great that our Aerial Skiing athletes have the support of an excellent company who produce the highest quality products. The direct support to the athlete program will help make our athletes both, more competitive in the future and safer with great skincare.”
EltaMD products are tested according to both US and International standards, with twelve sun screens recording a PA++++ rating.
