SPF Just Got Funny -- Will Ferrell Launches His Own Sunscreen Line For Charity

05/28/2009 at 02:31 PM ET

Cancer for College

Paris Hilton hawks stilettos, Eva Mendes designs sheets, and Jessica Simpson’s business empire includes everything from fragrance to luggage. But who’s to say that only Hollywood’s ladies get to have their own product lines? Will Ferrell is the next celeb to jump into the branding game by stripping down and greasing up for summer with a signature sunscreen collection. Taking the adage “sex sells” to heart, Will’s three SPF 30 lotions — in Sun Stroke, Sexy Hot Tan and Forbidden Fruit — feature glamour shots of the comedian in various states of undress. 100% of proceeds from Will Ferrell Sunscreen will benefit the charity Cancer for College‘s College Willpowered Scholarship Fund, which grants college scholarships to cancer survivors and amputees. As for why he chose to continue his long-time support of the charity with sunscreen, Will explains, “I’ve always dreamed of owning a lotion company. And I’ve always hated cancer.” Click to learn more about Cancer for College and how you can make a needed difference for aspiring college students whose lives have been devastated by the physical and financial toll of the disease. Then get beach-ready by purchasing the lotions, which start at $12 each, on the charity’s website, eBay.com, or Amazon.com.
