Skin cancer is a phenomenon that occurs increasingly. People ignore body signals that refer to it, like sunburn, because cancer is simply a disease that does not come from one day on the other. “It will never happen to me.” is what a lot of us think. But that is what makes it so dangerous.
Sunfrontation is a patch, shaped like a medical cross, which is applied on the body when being exposed to the sun for a longer time. The patch is made of solid gold, but has a sticky back so it does not fall of the body when moving around. Sunfrontation makes people aware of the dangers of being unprotected in the sun in two ways. The first one is because of the material. As the sun burns on the solid gold, it will heat up which will give the user an uncomfortable, burning feeling. A feeling that should give people a natural reflex, like it used to be, to get out of scorching sun.
If a person, who is wearing Sunfrontation, does not get out of
the burning sun, he will notice a medical cross after removing the patch. This time it won’t be the cross that is coloured red, but the body! This should alert the person of excessive sunbathing. The unexposed skin on the other hand won’t be damaged. So a white cross will be clearly visible on the red body.
