Sun Protection and the Ugly Xmas Rashie

We’ve teamed up with wearable UV indicator sticker company Suncayr and the Ugly Xmas Rashie to look at people’s sun protection habits.

People who buy an Ugly Xmas Rashie over 2018/2019 summer will receive a sample pack of Suncayr SPOTMYUV™ UV indicating spots that mimic skin to tell you when to reapply sunscreen. Participants are asked to complete an online survey when they purchase their rashie about their sun protection practices, and again 3 months later. Upon successful completion of the 3 month survey, participants go into the draw to win four Ugly Xmas Rashies from next year’s limited-edition design.

This study is open to participants over 18 years of age. Please note that this study has been approved by the Queensland University of Technology’s Human Research Ethics Committee (approval number 1800000851).
