Many don't realise that not all fabrics protect the same from the sun. Did you know that a regular white cotton t-shirt may have the equivalent protection of wearing SPF5 sunscreen? All Solbari products have the highest sun protective rating available in the world for fabrics and are tested in Australia with a UPF50+ certification, which is the equivalent to wearing SPF50+ sunscreen all day long.

You can see sunlight and feel the sun's heat. However, you cannot see or feel ultraviolet (UV) radiation.
It’s a common misconception that sun damage only occurs in hot climates, as many people associate damage with the visible signs of sun exposure, i.e sunburn.
You may be surprised to learn that the sun’s UVA and UVB rays actually have different, yet equally harmful, effects on the skin. They also have the potential to cause damage in the winter, as well as in the summer.
