The SOLBARI Team welcomes you to our online store and to our blog. Through this blog, we keep you updated with information related to sun protection, how to maintain a healthy skin and our new exciting products.
SOLBARI was created to help you protect your skin against the sun's harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays and provide you with an effective sun (SOL) barrier (BARI).
Regular summer clothes are not an alternative. A lightweight cotton t-shirt has a UPF of only 5 and leaves your skin exposed to sun damage.
SOLBARI sun protective clothing, swimwear and sun hats are researched, designed, tested and rated UPF50+, which is the highest and best sun protective rating in Australia.
Our mission is provide you with essential and reliable sun protective products to help you protect your skin and help prevent skin cancers, melanomas, sun damage, premature skin ageing and sun spots.

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.
