About Sunny SleeveZ
Mother of 2, freckly red head Dashiel St. Damien arrived in LA from her native London & quickly realized she needed more than a bit of sunscreen to prevent skin cancer & wrinkles. Dashiel explains “I did some research & discovered that Sunscreen takes up to 20 minutes to start working, has to be reapplied every 2 hours & almost all do not provide the protection they claim! Additionally according to the EWG the top Sunscreens may accelerate skin cancer & use the hormone-disrupting chemical oxybenzone, which penetrates the skin and enters the bloodstream”.

Frustrated by the lack of products on the market that would give instant sun protection for her arms & top of hands, she set about creating and patenting the 50+SPF/UPF fabric Sunny Sleevez.
Putting an end to the sticky goop on the steering wheel, putter or clothing Sunny SleeveZ proved to be an instant hit with drivers, cyclists , golfers, runners, amongst those with skin conditions. They come in a wide array of colorful, fresh designs that everyone loves!

Sunny Sleevez are not just for adults, Dashiel also created a range of Sunny SleeveZ for kids which have been a big hit with moms who are thrilled to end the daily ‘sunscreen battles” when constantly applying, messy chemical sun block only to have it end up in their kids eyes and mouths.
Skin cancer is the most prevalent form of cancer in the United States today. It takes only about 11 minutes of exposure to do irreparable damage to the skin cells. “I used my children and their friends for their brutal honesty when developing Sunny Sleevez. They are the ones that let me know exactly what was cool and what was not.”
With designs featuring flames, skulls, animals & even 3D butterflies and dinosaurs, being sun safe has never been so cool!
