SOLBARI is delighted to start a new partnership and support Melanoma Patients Australia (MPA).
MPA is one of the largest melanoma patient advocacy groups in Australia and a patient driven not for profit organisation that offers a national network of support and information to patients, their families, carers, and friends, about melanoma prevention, diagnosis, management and treatment.
Melanoma Patients Australia's mission is to provide information, support, awareness and advocacy to people affected by melanoma and to become the national peak body representing the interests of melanoma patients in Australia.
Melanoma Patients Australia's vision is to reduce the impact of melanoma on all Australians.
SOLBARI looks forward to a long standing relationship with Melanoma Patients Australia.

Getting to know your skin is probably the single most important thing you can do to help detect skin cancer symptoms. Check your moles regularly and keep a record of things popping up or growing on your skin.
If you notice any signs consistent with the list highlighted below that concern you or persist for two weeks, visit your doctor. There's a good chance that it's nothing - but why put it off? Early detection saves lives.
Modern sun protective clothing is produced from fabrics which are rated for their level of ultraviolet (UV) protection. This gives the fabrics their ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) rating.
A UPF is the rating used for Fabrics, whereas a SPF is the rating used for Sunscreen.
A rating of UPF50+ is the highest rating achievable on the market and blocks more than 98% of UV rays. All Solbari products are tested and rated UPF50+ in Australia.
Regular clothing such as a white cotton t-shirt or hat may only have a UPF of 5, equivalent to wearing SPF5 sunscreen.

The use of sunscreen is just one of a number of skin protection measures you should use every day. According to dermatologists, it should not be your primary form of protection and not your only one.
- Wear UPF50+ sun protective clothing that block UVA and UVB rays
- Wear a broad brim sun hat with a UPF50+ rating.
- Wear sunscreen with a SPF of 50+ on areas not covered by your UPF50+ clothing. Apply it 20 minutes before going out, and reapply every 2 hours....
