As many of you already know, at SOLBARI we encourage every one to get to know their skin and check it regularly.
Here are some of the reasons why:
Your skin is your largest organ. The average adult has two square meters of it! It is your first line of defence from bacteria, harsh temperatures, damaging sunlight, pollution, UVA and UVB rays. You tend to encounter these pretty much every day of your life.
Solar keratoses, or commonly known as sun spots are skin lesions that develop as a result of exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
These spots usually vary in size from as small as 2 millimetres up to 20 millimetres across. They can also appear as scaly or warty.
The colour of sun spots varies too. They can appear as being barely noticeable darkening in skin colour to a more obvious red.
This blog outlines the reasons why you should choose Solbari sun protective products over any other brand you might be considering. Australia is the global leader in skin cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Australia invented sunscreen and the UPF sun protective rating system.

This blog explains that not all clothing protects the same from the sun's UV rays. Regular clothing may only have a UPF rating of 5 which means that 20% of UV rays are able to penetrate the fabric. To be classified as sun protective clothing it needs to achieve a minimum UPF rating of 30 and very good protection. Read More
This blog discusses the fact that the recent hot weather in Australia has prompted much debate about sun safety behaviour. It has been recommended that sunscreen is applied daily and part of a routine like brushing our teeth. Dermatologists think UPF 50+ sun protective clothing can help reduce reliance on sunscreen.

In this blog we confirm that clothing with darker colours in the same fabric are most effective in terms of the sun protection UPF rating and skin cancer prevention. Research undertaken in Spain has confirmed this. We are also aware of this from our own fabric testing at Solbari with the Australian government. Read More
