WHO AND WHY
Our story began with a simple desire; to have our daughters continue to protect their skin from the sun’s harmful rays at the beach, as they grow into mature young women. We found it an increasing challenge to convince our teenage daughters to wear rash guards they had easily adopted as children. We were in search of fashionable and functional rash guards for women that would flatter and support the female body. And when we couldn’t find what we were all looking for – and realised they weren’t alone – the idea for Wet Leopard was born.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe you are in the prime of your life, full of potential, with big dreams for your future. We believe young women deserve to live a long, healthy life. We believe women under 40 need to be more sun-conscious and to do this they deserve sun-safe swimwear options, that look great, feel great and function great for women.
We believe in innovation, and that if something you need doesn’t exist, then create it. So, we engineered a new rash guard specifically designed for the female body and were granted an approved US patent and awarded an Australian Business Award for New Product Innovation.
U.S. PATENT No. 10238154
Melanoma is the MOST common cancer in young people aged 15-39 years in Australia, N.Z and the U.S.
Melanoma is the deadliest type of skin cancer, killing 1 Australian every 5 hours and 1 American every hour.
But… 95% of skin cancers can be prevented through reduced exposure to the sun’s UV rays, and that’s why we are raising awareness of the dangers of too much sun and inspiring young women to protect their skin by covering up.
Wet Leopard proudly supports the Melanoma Institute Australia, donating 1% of all sales towards melanoma research.
