All Natural Sunscreen
We are very excited to have for you a highly effective selection of all natural, biodegradable, non chemical, organic sunscreens and lip balm. We jokingly call them our "Green Sunscreens" since they don't include ingredients that disrupt biological functions or harm the environment. These safe sunscreens are also a good selection for our growing kids :)
Special sun precautions for children
Experts estimate that a significant percentage of our exposure to sun occurs by age 18. So, sun protection should start in childhood to prevent skin cancer and other maladies later in life. With your families sun safety in mind, we have kids sun protection hats, kids SPF swim wear, 100% UV Protective Swim Goggles and more - all with maximum UV protection… and in real cool designs and colors. And be sure to take a peek at our natural, non-chemical sunscreens. We even have a fun way to help children want to wear their sun protective hat.
Many people ask us "Why is UPF Clothing so special?"
The average T-shirt blocks 50% of the UV radiation and many everyday summer weight clothes protect even less. Lightweight UPF clothing not only provide a critical barrier from the sun's harmful rays, but also help keep you more comfortable on a hot day. Unique to sun protective clothes are special design features such as underarm airvents, a roll-up collar for added neck protection or cuffs with retractable hand flaps. Sun blocking clothing also provides UV protection when damp. By wetting your SPF shirt or sun hat you can stay fresher with evaporative cooling - a big advantage on a hot day!
How is a fabric made to be sun protective fabric?
Most sun protective fabrics (also called SPF fabric) are tightly woven/knit and may (or may not) be chemically treated with UV inhibitors. Fabrics from cotton to polyester are used, with the most common being nylon.
