Local Mom Keeps Kids Safe in the Sun
It comes as no surprise that the inspiration for SwimZip was born on a sunny beach. Founder and KC native Betsy Johnson and her brother were sitting around playing with her niece when her brother started to complain about the effort involved in putting on and taking off his children's swim shirts. Two months later, SwimZip was making sun protection a zip!
SwimZip is an easy-on, easy-off UV 50+ protective swim shirt for children. The full front zipper and sewn-in protective collar make changing little ones a breeze. The no-pinch zipper flap, tagless neck and flat seams make wearing the swimwear comfy! SwimZip's material is chlorine resistant, too!
Betsy has a personal reason for keeping kids safe from the sun. At the age of 26, she was diagnosed with skin cancer. Since then, she has made it a priority to educate children and parents about the dangers of UV rays.
“SwimZip perfectly blends my loves of fashion, function, health and kids,” she says. “From someone who knows firsthand the dangers of too much sun exposure: Please keep your children protected from the sun!” 1.888.SwimZip (794.6947) or www.SwimZip.com
