WHY IS UPF50+ FABRIC IS SO IMPORTANT ?
Now it's a fact. Exposure to UV rays from the sun is bad for your skin and can lead to skin cancer.
Clothing is one of the most effective methods of sun protection especially when combined with sun screen, sunglasses and a hat.
The most effective clothing for blocking out the sun is UPF50+ rated.
A long sleeve UPF50+ top, just like in the image above, will allow just 1/50th of the suns UV to reach the skin. That’s just 2%. Or 98% coverage from the suns UV.
Now denim can have a UPF 1700+ rating. But no one wants to wear double denim on the beach.
Recycled polyester is one of the most effective UPF fabrics. It’s breathable, quick dry and it’s good for the environment.
So cover up this summer.
Choose brands with a sustainable purpose.
The ripple effect starts with you.
