Sunscreen Dispensers

Avoiding Skin Damage from UV Rays is Crucial to Living a Healthy Lifestyle



In 2022, Save Your Skin Foundation partnered with medical student siblings Samuel and Karen Farag, and the municipalities of Summerside, PEI, Riverview, NB, New Westminster, BC, and Brooks, AB – as well as BC Cancer – to launch 10 dispensers. Building on our success in 2o22, we launched an additional 30 dispensers in June 2023.


Our sunscreen dispensers initiative is going strong for another season. We encourage all municipalities or community organizations interested in the sunscreen dispensers to reach out to Save Your Skin Foundation at


The dispensers are automatic and touchless, and provide free, Health Canada approved SPF 30 sunscreen for anyone who needs it. The sunscreen is zinc oxide based, free from chemical sunscreen filters, common allergens and toxic ingredients including oxybenzone, avobenzone, retinyl palminate, PEG, parfume, and sodium lauryl sulphate. See image to the right for more details.


Two dispensers to be installed at the following locations:

  • Brundage Point River Centre

  • Tail Whip Park / Splash Pad

Applying sunscreen is part of an overall sun-safe way to enjoy the outdoors. First, limit your time in the direct sunlight, especially between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., seek shade, cover up by wearing long sleeves and pants and a wide-brimmed hat. Use sunscreen, specifically one labelled broad-spectrum, SPF 30, to protect the lips with lip sunscreen or zinc oxide. Apply 20 minutes before sun exposure, and reapply every two hours or after swimming.

Affixed to the Dispensers is a list of the sunscreen ingredients and a reference to Health Canada’s approval of the sunscreen, as well as a disclaimer concerning the use of the Dispenser or the sunscreen contained therein:
