UV Protective Swimwear

 

SKIN CANCER STEADILY INCREASES

The past several decades, skin cancer has been the leading cancer with almost 5 million cases each year. This coming year, 1 in 5 people will get skin cancer. The only effective way to prevent this is protection against the sun. The Skin Cancer Foundation states that there is only one effective way to protect your skin…clothing and sunscreen on the exposed skin!

HOW MUCH SUN PROTECTION IS IN A REGULAR COTTON T-SHIRT

Did you know that regular cotton clothing only has UPF 5-7 ultraviolet protection? When this cotton gets wet it is even worse, a wet cotton shirt protects around UPF 3. This is scary to think we are unaware that when we are wearing regular cotton we are not protected against harmful ultraviolet radiation.

90% of skin cancers and premature aging are a result of continuous exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun. This damage is irreversible. It is important to protect yourself and your family against this now with sun protection swimwear.

COOLIBAR

The very first clothing company that has received the Seal of Recommendation from The Skin Cancer Foundation is Coolibar. All of Coolibar’s clothing provides UPF 50 which blocks 98% of the sun’s harmful UVB and UVA rays that can eventually cause cancer and those ever so not attractive brown spots, wrinkles, and sagging skin.

WHAT IS UPF

UPF is similar to SPF. The difference is SPF is the sun protection factor for skin using liquids, serums, and lotions. UPF is the sun protection factor for clothing and fabrics using various materials.

Zinc oxide is used for its UVA and UVB sun protection qualities and also to make fabric soft and comforting. Coolibar clothing has exceeded all Australian and American published standards.

It is necessary to protect your unexposed skin with a sunscreen lotion or oil with SPF 30 or more. To really combat prevention, protect your covered skin from the sun with sun protection swimwear of UPF 50.

What is neat about wearing UPF clothing is that there is no application, no reapplying, and it won’t rinse off.
