St. Paul, Minn. (March 19, 2020) – Ergodyne officially entered the sunscreen category with the announcement of its new KREW’D™ brand. The launch includes five SPF 50 products spanning three application forms and sizes — lotion (32oz, 8oz, 1.5oz), spray (5.5oz) and stick (1.5oz).
“Outdoor workers are 3.5 times more likely to develop skin cancer, a statistic alarming enough for OSHA to classify UV as a carcinogen,” says Alsie Nelson, Senior Product Manager for Ergodyne. “Knowing what we know, there’s no excuse not to apply sunscreen. By providing multiple capacities and formulations, we can increase the likelihood of workers properly protecting their skin whether they’re at the jobsite or on-the-go.”
KREW’D™ is an SPF 50, broad-spectrum (UVA/UVB), water-resistant sport sunscreen that provides even coverage for better protection. The dermatologist-tested and FDA-approved formula is lightweight, non-greasy, absorbs quickly and is free of paraben/phthalates and octinoxate/oxybenzone.
“Sunscreen is an incredibly integral piece of the skin protection puzzle,” said Tom Votel, Ergodyne President & CEO. “KREW’D™ rounds out our already-existing arsenal of UPF clothing, portable shelters and protective eyewear.”
