Brand Aid

Zwitsal, Holland’s leading skin care brand for children, is raising awareness of the importance of UV protection with the introduction of a special fire brigade that fights sunburn: the ‘Zwitsal Zonnebrandweer’. Its task is to respond to sunny conditions and a high UV index, by driving to ‘hazardous areas’ and informing parents and kids about the importance of protecting their skin.
