Thanks for stopping by Sol Sisters! My name is Shelby and I have a passionate story behind starting this company that I would love to share with you.
In the summer of 2013 I suffered a severe third degree burn which caused permanent damage to my skin. I was burned by the unsuspecting assailant of lime juice. Its a condition called Phytophotodermatitis. I know, crazy name right? But because of this burn my skin has become extra sun sensitive, which makes me a prime target for skin cancer. With being as fair skinned as I am, and this new-found extra sensitivity, I have to be careful how much I expose myself to the sun's harmful UV rays, for fear of getting skin cancer.
So I went searching for a solution, and I came across UV protective clothing. However, what I found was mostly bland hiking gear and swimwear. Not what your average college student wears on a daily basis, am I right? I don't exactly want to be "Safari Shelby" everyday. So I decided to create the one-stop-shop for UV protection: Sol Sisters. I have collected clothing, cosmetics, and accessories from around the world to provide sun sensitive women like myself with a wide selection of attractive fashion choices that also have UV protective elements. I don't believe that we should have to compromise the safety of our health for our choice in fashion and expressing our personality.
I currently live in Huntington Beach, California and am a college student at UC Irvine. I am passionate to create not only a store with fashionable sun protective solutions, but also unite a community of women who struggle with the same sun sensitivity issue. I want to provide a positive space for women to share their stories, struggles, and solutions for this problem we all deal with on a daily basis.
If there is any questions or concerns you have, send them my way and I will be happy to answer whatever you wanna know about our company!
