Sunwize Sunsuits for Kids

UV protective swimwearWith Summer basically already here and unseasonably hot weather predicted, we need to look to protect ourselves from the sun, especially our children.

Our Little Fighters especially need protection from the sun’s vicious rays, but hate looking like they come from Mars or somewhere when they have to dress like they are freezing, and  this both makes them feel out among their peers and spoils their fun in the sun and surf.

With that in mind, here is some information I cam across about Oggi, who produce great sun outfits that carry the CANSA seal of approval.

Oggi have long been known for their quality Sunwize Sunsuits for Kids, but did you know that they also produce a great range of activewear for  gym, swimming, cycling, surfing, dance wear and yoga gear.

Sold in sports, surf and kid’s boutiques around the country, Oggi also have a genuine factory shop in Harfield Village, Cape Town. Oggi’s philosophy of having Fun in the Sun is reflected in the myriad bright colours that adorn the interior. Friendly staff with good product knowledge are on hand to help you sift through the selection and find that ultimate bargain.

UV protective sunwearSunsuits protect the skin from the ever higher doses of UV Radiation that we’re exposed to as a result of Ozone damage. These high levels are cause for concern world-wide. Doctors are tracking an ever-increasing incidence of skin cancer in younger and younger patients. Serious steps need to be taken by parents when sending kids out in the sun, and hats, sunglasses, sunscreens, sunsuits and the time of day should all form part of play time planning.

Oggi sunsuits carry the CANSA seal of recognition, but the serious nature of sunsuits does not mean they have to look that way. Oggi designer, Gail, likes to keep to the brighter side, and this seasons range has all the hallmarks of the Oggi by-line, “Fun In The Sun”. With everything in the range from brights to pastel to overprinted dots, these are definitely the hottest designs around in kids swim wear.

On a corner in 2nd Ave in Harfield Village, the shop is not difficult to find, but parking is not immediately evident so be prepared to park in the side road and take a short walk to the shop. It’s well worth the effort so pop along for your best buy yet this year.

Please note that the Little Fighters Cancer Trust is not receiving any payment in any kind for this post – I just saw the info when looking through a list of local factory shops and thought it would be great for our Onco families who I know struggle to keep our Little Fighters protected in the summer and with finances, so…



About LFCT

This is a blog about CHILDHOOD CANCER and CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS Little Fighters Cancer Trust is a non-profit organisation that offers support and aid to Children with Cancer and their families. When a child is diagnosed with cancer it affects the whole family. One of the parents, usually the mother, must give up their job to care for the child and this creates financial problems for the family. In South Africa especially the majority of these families are not well-to-do; many of them are rural. A diagnosis of cancer can wipe out any family’s finances, let alone a poor family. The costs of special medications, special diets, hospital stays, transport to and from the hospital or clinic and accommodation and food costs for the mother who spends most of the time at her child’s bedside are astronomical. These are the people and problems that fall through the cracks, and these are the people that Little Fighters Cancer Trust has pledged to help in any way possible. LFCT takes a holistic approach to assisting the Children with Cancer and their Families, with the main aim to be the preservation of individual dignity and pride. Little Fighters Cancer Trust also focuses on promotion and advocacy of National Childhood Cancer Awareness in an effort to increase awareness of Early Warning Signs of Childhood Cancer. This would result in earlier diagnosis, giving the Child with Cancer more of a chance at Treatment and Survival. See "About" for more Background info
