Annual Review 2017-2018

Sun protection

Larger Text Smaller Text Print


As part of our efforts to prevent and lessen the impact of skin cancer, we develop and license a broad range of Cancer Council branded sun protection products. Our aim is to provide Australians with effective and affordable protection from UV radiation.

All royalties received from the sale of Cancer Council sun protection products contribute to our research funding, patient support services and education programs.

In summer 2016-17 we saw an increased interest from consumers for our sun protection range as we continue to broaden it in response to consumer demands for comfort as well as safety. Cancer Council products are now sold in over 8,000 retail outlets around Australia including Cancer Council shops, supermarkets, pharmacies, department stores, sunglass kiosks, optometrists and new car dealerships.

In 2016-17, licensing of Cancer Council branded sun protection products delivered $3.1 million in royalties.
