Solbari is an Australian award-winning company producing effective and stylish UPF 50+ clothing and accessories with customers in over 70 countries. We have teamed up with a number of global healthcare leaders to help spread the word about the benefits of sun protection and their efforts to diagnose, treat and support those impacted by skin cancer and other skin conditions.
Regular summer clothes may have an Ultra Protection Factor rating (UPF) as low as 5.
A UPF of 5 provides little sun protection and lets large amounts of sunlight and UV rays pass through. This can lead to skin damage, premature skin ageing, skin cancer and melanoma.
The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends sun protective clothing as the best way to protect your skin against the sun's damaging rays. Solbari UPF50+ Clothing, sun hats and accessories provide the highest sun protection rating for fabrics and block out 98% of harmful UV rays.
At Solbari, we believe that prevention is the best cure. According to medical experts, this is particularly true when it comes to skin cancer and melanoma.
In this blog, we discuss ways that you can use to help prevent skin cancer and melanoma.
Many of us see the ultraviolet (UV) index on weather reports and read about UV alerts at particular times of the day. But do you know what it actually means and how it affects you?
There are two main types of UV rays and both cause damage to skin cells. Ultraviolet light is a form of radiation invisible to the human eye. Ultraviolet wavelengths of sunlight are made up of UVB, which has shorter wavelengths and higher energy, and UVA, which has longer wavelengths and lower energy.
