ā€œIā€™m proud to create a product that can prevent the ill effects -- precancers, skin cancers, photo-aging ā€“ of sun exposure on the hands and one day generate profits to support a small burn clinic in Chiapas state in Mexico. This all started at Pima Community College in a Fashion Design class, something I never imagined.ā€
