PHILADELPHIA – The Philadelphia Phoenix is pleased to announce the renewal of their partnership with CōTZ, a Philadelphia based skincare company. Phoenix President, Christina Lee Chung, MD said, “As a dermatologist and ultimate player, I know how integral sunscreen and proper sun protection is to protect against the development of skin cancers and sun damage especially while playing an active outdoor sport. Partnering our active professional sports team with a leading sunscreen brand is a perfect combination to instill this importance in a younger generation and I’m happy to have found that combination with CōTZ.”
The successful partnership began during the 2019 season, when the Phoenix transitioned under new ownership and management. The 2020 season welcomes CōTZ as the Official Sunscreen of the Philadelphia Phoenix. CōTZ VP of Marketing and Sales, Kathy Dwyer said, “The CōTZ team is excited to partner with the Philadelphia Phoenix for a second year. We are a Philly area business who loves to support our home team and their fans while helping keep them sun-safe!”
In addition to their new title, CōTZ will be the presenting sponsor of the Phoenix’s new social media series, Explain the Game. The new series is aimed to further the understanding of rules, fundamentals and ideals of ultimate for both newcomers and those who may aware of the sport, but unfamiliar with how ultimate is played. “I’m excited for the series to bring ultimate to people of many backgrounds. It is a spring board for us to reach new fans and influence new players of the sport; we also believe it allows fans, both new and old, to enjoy ultimate at its core,” said Chung.
CōTZ produces a variety of mineral based sunscreen products for children to adults. The company was founded in 2002 with the singular mission to create healthier mineral sunscreens for daily use. CōTZ stands for Contains Only Titanium dioxide and Zinc oxide, and works by reflecting harmful UVA/UVB rays away from the skin’s surface.
