UPF 50+ Protection
Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) indicates how much UV radiation (both UVB and UVA) a fabric allows to reach your skin. For example, a UPF 50 fabric blocks 98 percent of the sun's rays and allows two percent (1/50th) to penetrate, thus reducing your exposure risk significantly.
What is the difference between UPF & UV Protection?
SPF is a standard used to measure the effectiveness of sunscreen. SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. It measures the amount of time it takes for sun-exposed skin to redden, while UPF measures the amount of UV radiation that penetrates a fabric and reaches the skin.
Is UPF clothing safe?
UPF clothing is the single most effective form of sun protection against the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays. It does not rinse off, it cannot be diluted, it does not need reapplied and it can't be applied incorrectly, with too thin a layer or missed spots, like sunscreen lotions.
