At SOLBARI we encourage individuals to enjoy the outdoors while protecting themselves from the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays.
One way to protect yourself is with SOLBARI sun protective clothing. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, sun protective clothing is the single most effective form of sun protection for the body.
Whether you're hiking, at the beach, gardening, playing golf or fishing, it's now easy to keep covered and protect your skin effectively.
However, you may ask why should I buy SOLBARI? Well, not all clothing offers the same level of protection.
A fabric's weave, color, weight, stretch and finer all contribute towards how much ultraviolet rays get blocked.
SOLBARI has worked closely with fabric experts to find sun protective fabrics which have the highest rating for sun protection and a Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) of 50+. This rating of UPF50+ is the highest rating possible and blocks more than 98% of UV rays. A UPF is the rating used for Fabrics, whereas a SPF is the rating used for Sunscreen.
Put simply, a sun protective garment or sun hat with a UPF50+ is the equivalent to what SPF50+ is to sunscreen.
In comparison, a regular white cotton t-shirt, which so many people wear during the summer months, only has a UPF of 5! or the equivalent to wearing a SPF5.
Medical experts and dermatologists recommend wearing SOLBARI sun protective clothing, swimwear and sun hats as an effective and reliable way to protect the skin again the sun and prevent melanoma, skin cancer and to maintain a healthy skin.

At SOLBARI, we believe that PREVENTION IS THE BEST CURE. According to medical experts, this is particularly true when it comes to skin cancer and melanoma.
Sun exposure has been identified as the cause of 95% to 99% of skin cancers in Australia.
Now, don't get us wrong. We are not suggesting you live in a cave or indoors when the sun is out, but rather than you use intelligent sun protective measures to help keep your skin safe when outdoors in the sun.
