Message from our founder

Founded by a Dermatologist, Badawii is not only about fashion, it is essentially about protecting the skin of our little ones from the harmful effects of UV rays and showing them how to practice safe sun.

This is so important to us that we included our message in all our sun protective clothes: PROTECT YOUR SKIN.   

This blog intends to raise awareness on how important it is for your children to be protected from the sun at an early age. We know it is not always easy, that is why we included this very important section at the top of our store to give you essential information about sun protection, things to avoid while staying in the sun and guidelines to practice safe sun.

Did you know it only takes one blistering sunburn during childhood or adolescence to nearly double a person’s chance of developing melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, later in life?

It is very important for parents to do everything they can to protect their kids from the sun’s harmful UV rays and teach them healthy sun care habits – starting at an early age. 

Skin cancer is the most common cancer worldwide. Anyone can get skin cancer, regardless of skin color. Unprotected UV exposure is the most preventable risk factor for skin cancer. The good news is that when caught early, skin cancer is highly treatable.

In order to help parents solve their doubts, we have included in our blog some of the questions most frequently asked to our founder, Dr. Micaela Churruca - Dermatologist.
