A new study in JAMA Dermatology suggests that regular childhood and early adulthood use of sunscreen can reduce the risk of developing melanoma later in life by 40%. In order to attract young consumers (and older ones!) to utilizing sun protection, sun care brands have been exploring fun and innovative ways to change up the sunscreen game. 

Bare Republic's Mineral SPF 50 Neon Sunscreen Sticks give consumers the opportunity to protect themselves from the sun while applying bright, neon hues to the skin. Available in Electric Blue, Neon Green, Atomic Orange, Punk Rock Pink, Wicked Purple and Lightning Yellow, these sunscreen sticks utilize food grade ingredients to achieve the bright shades. 

Retailing for $8.99, the sticks are available in summery scents, including blueberry, coconut, mango, raspberry, grape and banana. The sticks are cruelty-free.
