Sunscreen Jewelry!

M.Mills Company has created a line of jewelry to show their a one-of-a kind jewelry that is made to remind you to put on sunscreen!

The bracelets and lanyards turn color if they’re in the sun. They have a SolarActive crystal that changes colors when UV rays are hitting it. It reminds you to put on the sunscreen or get out of the sun.

Two of the bracelets were named after skin cancer survivors. One of them, the Meghan bracelet was named after Meghan Rothschild. Meghan was diagnosed with Melanoma at the age of 20. Meghan is now the marketing and public relations manager of the Melanoma Foundation of New England. 100% of net proceeds from the Meghan Bracelet go to the Melanoma Foundation of New England.

The bracelets can be worn with your bathing suit or a work suit. It is a friendly reminder to wear sunscreen.
