Our children are at higher risk of skin cancer than ever before

There’s always a lot to look forward to in the summer, like longer days to linger on the beach with friends, or fun family camping trips. We may be in better spirits when the sun is shining, but the good mood won’t last if we don’t protect ourselves from the harmful effects of  UV radiation.

According to the Canadian Dermatology Association, excessive exposure to UV radiation is the main cause of skin cancer. In 2011, the CDA published this startling statistic on its skin cancer fact sheet:

Canadians born in the 1990’s have two to three times higher lifetime risk of getting skin cancer compared to those born in the 1960’s. For those born in the 1990’s, there is a 1 in 6 lifetime risk of having skin cancer. For those born in the 1960’s, there is a 1 in 20 lifetime risk.

Given the advances in science that have given us the most powerful sun blocking options ever available, this notion is alarming. Without more diligent prevention and detection, we are setting future generations up for enormous health struggles.

Schisandrin B, the key compound at the core of Glissandra products, has been scientifically proven to protect skin cells from both spectra of solar light – UV and infrared radiation. Glissandra Serum complements broad spectrum sunscreens and is safe for use on sensitive and/or problematic skin, including that of younger users who were born in the 1990’s.

The CDA is launching its National Sun Awareness Program 2012 with a series of public skin cancer screenings across Canada. Key dates for our Canadian members include:

Sunday, May 27, 2012 – Winnipeg, MB

Glissandra Skincare Proudly Supports World Figure Skating Champion, Patrick Chan

On Saturday, February 18, 2012, hundreds of guests packed the Victoria Chinese Restaurant in Downtown Vancouver to celebrate Canadian figure skater, Patrick Chan. The event was hosted by the World Chinese Business Association of Canada and raised almost $60,000 to assist in Chan’s training as he sets his sights on a gold medal in men’s figure skating at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Glissandra Skincare donated its groundbreaking anti-aging skincare products to the event’s silent auction. Representatives of the company were also in attendance at the fundraiser to show their support.

As the winner of the last five major world championships, Chan has captured the hearts of Canadians and figure skating enthusiasts from around the world. Like Chan, Glissandra Skincare is dedicated to setting a new standard of excellence on the international stage.

Independent Glissandra distributor, Julie Jang, will generously donate $50 to Patrick Chan’s training fund for each new, personally sponsored member that purchases a complete set of Glissandra’s principal products – Serum, Face Cream, and Eye Cream – and mentions Patrick Chan’s recent victory at the Four Continents figure skating championship in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Glissandra Skincare will also send one bonus, full-size Eye Cream to these qualifying new members as a welcome gift. This offer is valid, while quantities last, until March 31, 2012.

Glissandra Skincare is a health-focused skincare company whose advanced anti-aging products are available through its international network of independent distributors. Its products are powered by Glissandrin™, a patented suite of potent natural compounds scientifically proven to enhance the cell’s natural antioxidative capabilities and to target mitochondrial decay, the fundamental cause of aging.
