Naturally derived sunscreen will be at races in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series, Women’s Half Marathon Series and TriRock Triathlon Series starting in 2013
San Diego, CA – Jan. 3, 2013 – Competitor Group, Inc. (CGI), the leading active lifestyle sports media and event entertainment company, announced a new partnership with McNabb Nutraceuticals, LLC., maker of Sunology® Natural Sun Protection to offer its natural sun protection products at all 2013 events in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series, Women’s Half Marathon Series and TriRock Triathlon Series. The partnership kicks off at the P.F. Chang’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona Marathon & 1/2, which takes place on Sunday, January 20, 2013.
“Sunology products contain no chemicals in the Active Ingredients, nor any preservatives in the formulation. Because it also has no water, only a healthy oil base, Sunology protects from extreme sun, whether on land or water. It really is the ideal choice for endurance sports, where participants want a natural sunscreen option,” said Richard Doermer, Founder of McNabb Nutraceuticals, LLC., maker of Sunology. “Sunology’s inactive ingredients contain a high level of Vitamins and antioxidants which nourishes the skin. We want runners to be healthy while we protect them from the sun’s harmful rays.”
Naturally derived from moringa oil and FSG, a natural antioxidant derived from soybean oil, Sunology is a broad spectrum sunscreen reflecting both harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun. Sunology’s UV MicroReflexion™ technology mirrors back the UV rays from the skin’s surface, while preventing absorption into the skin, unlike other, chemical sunscreens. The highly concentrated formula is 100% biodegradable and only requires a dime-sized portion to cover face, neck and arms.
“Our bikers, swimmers and runners can be exposed to extreme conditions, whether wind, water or sun, from anywhere up to five hours and beyond. We think it’s important to use Sunology sunscreen because it’s healthy and effective with natural ingredients.” said Sean Clottu, Vice President of Sales Development & Activation at CGI. “Whether they forgot to pack sunscreen for race day or need to start a better sun protection system, we know that participants will be pleased that Sunology products will be available at all 2013 events series-wide.”
Race weekends throughout all event series traditionally begin with a Health & Fitness Expo, where all participants go to pick up their race number. Expos feature exhibits, clinics, and some of the best running and fitness retailers, including Sunology, which will feature a booth where products will be available for sampling.
