We are extremely proud of our partners LifeJacket Skin Protection and the launch of their new Sun Gel Dispensers.  We want to take this opportunity to applaud the responsible businesses protecting their customers and staff through the use of automatic sunscreen dispensers. 

Mounting research shows that too many of us are not protecting our skin adequately against sun damage and cancer. This is especially true for men - who are twice as likely as women to die from skin cancer. The restaurants, pubs and bars with the foresight to offer their customers and staff free skin protection deserve recognition for pioneering change in consumer behaviour. It’s great to see that sun protection is becoming an important extension of conventional PPE.

This summer, C&C Group plc (owner of Magners, Tennent’s, Bulmer, Admiral Taverns and Matthew Clark Bibendum) has purchased sixty dispensers for its owned and customer venues. In addition, Westbeach, Aruba, Sunset Beach Club and Urban Reef in Dorset have also been among the first to install them. 

LifeJacket's quick-install, automatic dispensers are easy to attach to walls and come with two litres (equivalent to 1,000 dispenses) of LifeJacket’s SPF 50+ Sun Gel, including all fittings. The Sun Gel is suitable for children over two years-old and is non-greasy, lightweight, water resistant, cruelty free and clinically proven for sensitive skin. 

The automatic sunscreen dispenser costs £165 (+ VAT) each and available from lifejacketskinprotection.com
