Responder Resilience salutes our partner, KOVR, an all-natural, military grade, mineral sunscreen lotion. Providing broad spectrum protection in an SPF 30, Cover blocks 97% of harmful UVA and UVB rays, but is light enough to allow your skin to breathe.

First responders often spend long hours in the sun, and prolonged skin exposure is one of the hazards of the job. Firefighters, Law Enforcement and EMS love KOVR because it won't stain clothing and the 4 oz. bottle fits easily into a backpack or go bag.
