)-- International Players Tour (IPT) announces the selection of MelanSol® All Natural Antioxidant Sunscreen as the “Preferred Sunscreen” of the IPT, joining a growing number of companies and consumers who recognize that antioxidants are the key to protecting skin from long-term UV skin damage. MelanSol® achieves the highest level of skin protection by combining strong topical anti-oxidants with reflective UV filters. It filters a 96 percent of UV rays so you can stay out longer. The strong topical anti-oxidants help prevent free radical UV damage by allowing your skin maintain its delicate balance between oxidants and anti-oxidants.

And we’re proud to be offering this revolutionary product to our players and their families.”
MelanSol® is a “chemical free” sunscreen invented by Peter Zahner, a basal cell skin cancer survivor. Zahner designed his all natural sunscreen to be safe for all ages, while being in complete harmony with our environment. "MelanSol® is a new kind of skin protection for outdoor enthusiasts, especially golfers spending five or six hours in the sun. We applaud IPT’s commitment to provide players with an all natural sunscreen to help them avoid accumulated UV skin damage that can lead to the fastest growing forms of skin cancer,” said Michael Russ, US distributor for MelanSol®.
About International Players Tour (IPT)
International Players Tour, operated by prior management of Champions Golf Tour (CGT), was launched in January 2008 for the purpose of bringing PGA style competition to avid golfers everywhere. Operations began in April 2002 under the banner of the Champions Golf Tour, which was founded by Ron Beaman in the Dallas/Ft.Worth area. Ron developed a business model that would provide avid recreational golfers a chance to play in an environment similar to major tour events – “inside the ropes” for significant prize money – utilizing a proprietary handicap system.
After conducting its first event in June, 2002, CGT followed with 17 tournaments in 2002 and awarded nearly $60,000 in prize money. Significant and sustained growth has occurred in subsequent years in player participation, number of events, and prize money. With over 1200 players in their system, IPT management conducted over 150 events in 2007 within ten state and twelve metropolitan city areas with payouts exceeding $570,000. In 2008, the IPT will conduct 200+ events in fifteen different metro areas, culminating in the Tour Championship at the Horseshoe Bay Resort in Texas, with the winner taking home $20,000 in Guaranteed first place prize money.
“The Model that Works” is now being adopted effectively and implemented successfully in multiple cities, with projected expansion into 5-10 new markets each year – including international locations - through a unique licensing rights program. See www.ipgtour.com for additional information.
MelanSol® 100 percent natural sunscreen provides immediate high performance skin protection. It’s anti-oxidant rich formula works with the body to provide your skin with premium protection from free radical damage, while natural zinc oxide reflects UVA and UVB radiation across the full spectrum.
