Sun protective clothing: Why it's worth it

Sun protective clothing: Why it's worth it

At SOLBARI we encourage individuals to enjoy the outdoors while protecting themselves from the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays.

One way to protect yourself is with SOLBARI sun protective clothing. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, sun protective clothing is the single most effective form of sun protection for the body.

SOLBARI sun protective clothing is a great way to shield your skin from the sun's ultraviolet rays, which harm the skin and account for around 85% of melanomas and 95% of non melanoma skin cancers.

Whether you're hiking, at the beach, gardening, playing golf or fishing, it's now easy to keep covered and protect your skin effectively.

However, you may ask why should I buy SOLBARI? Well, not all clothing offers the same level of protection.

A fabric's weave, color, weight, stretch and finer all contribute towards how much ultraviolet rays get blocked.

SOLBARI has worked closely with fabric experts to find sun protective fabrics which have the highest rating for sun protection and a Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) of 50+. This rating of UPF50+ is the highest rating possible and blocks more than 98% of UV rays. A UPF is the rating used for Fabrics, whereas a SPF is the rating used for Sunscreen.

Put simply, a sun protective garment or sun hat with a UPF50+ is the equivalent to what SPF50+ is to sunscreen.

In comparison, a regular white cotton t-shirt, which so many people wear during the summer months, only has a UPF of 5! or the equivalent to wearing a SPF5.

Medical experts and dermatologists recommend wearing SOLBARI sun protective clothing, swimwear and sun hats as an effective and reliable way to protect the skin again the sun and prevent melanoma, skin cancer and to maintain a healthy skin.

It is very difficult to the untrained eye to identify melanomas and skin cancers because they can come in many different shapes and sizes.  

As Associate Professor Rosemary Nixon from the Skin & Cancer Foundation Inc. says, "the earlier a skin cancer is identified and treated, the better the chance of avoiding surgery, or in the case of a serious melanoma or skin cancer, potential disfigurement or even death."
