WHO WE ARE
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 them to wear rash guards they had easily adopted as children, but now were unimpressed with the existing range. We were in search of fashionable and functional rash guards designed for women bodies. And when we couldn’t find what we were looking for- and realised we 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 have fashionable sun-safe options in swimwear, along with relatable information to help influence them on why it’s so important to protect our skin, because Life is Precious and what you do now, matters.
Wet Leopard’s mission is to deliver innovative, sun-conscious swimwear that is fashionable and functional to empower young women to make choices to live happy, healthy lives. We strive to provide high quality swimwear that is affordable to encourage sun protection and ultimately prevent life threatening skin cancers.
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.
