What is psoriasis clothing?

Solbari blog: What is psoriasis clothing?

Psoriasis clothing is clothing that has been made specifically with psoriasis and other chronic skin conditions in mind. It utilises natural fibres which are soft on the skin, help regulate body temperature in both cold and hot conditions and doesn't incorporate synthetic materials or chemicals which aggravate the skin and cause flare ups.

As many sufferers of psoriasis undergo photo or light therapy it is also important that psoriasis clothing provides excellent sun protection as skin cancer is a heightened risk, particularly for those with fair skin or a family history of skin cancer and melanoma. Sunburn can also cause psoriasis flare ups, so whilst direct sunlight in small doses is considered a positive, overexposure to UV is likely to cause an adverse reaction.

Solbari has developed a sensitive skin fabric which is specifically for those suffering with psoriasis.

The Solbari sensitive skin fabric is a super soft blend of organic cotton and bamboo. The Solbari sensitive skin fabric is also very light and breathable which is gentle on the skin and regulates body temperature in hot and cold conditions.

As the leading sun protective clothing brand in Australia with loyal customers in over 70 countries, all Solbari fabrics have been tested and rated UPF 50+ by the Australian Government. UPF 50+ is the maximum sun protective rating achievable in the World.

Solbari is a proud partner of Psoriasis Australia and has created a unique discount code which entitles customers to a 10% discount code PSORIASIS10, with every purchase Solbari will make a donation equivalent to 10% of the order value to Psoriasis Australia.
