The SOLBARI Team welcomes you to our online store and to our blog. Through this blog, we keep you updated with information related to sun protection, how to maintain a healthy skin and our new exciting products.
SOLBARI was created to help you protect your skin against the sun's harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays and provide you with an effective sun (SOL) barrier (BARI).
Regular summer clothes are not an alternative. A lightweight cotton t-shirt has a UPF of only 5 and leaves your skin exposed to sun damage.
SOLBARI sun protective clothing, swimwear and sun hats are researched, designed, tested and rated UPF50+, which is the highest and best sun protective rating in Australia.
Our mission is provide you with essential and reliable sun protective products to help you protect your skin and help prevent skin cancers, melanomas, sun damage, premature skin ageing and sun spots.

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.
In this blog we highlight 7 areas which people often forget to protect and can cause serious sunburns and skin damage...
1. Ears: Have you ever had blistering, peeling ears? Well, it's pretty painful and not a good look. Don't forget to apply sunscreen on your ears, the upper area and behind them.
2. Eyelids: It's a very delicate area, where the skin is sensitive and thin. Category 3 sunglasses will help protect the eyes as well as a wide brim sun hat.

Regular summer clothes might have an Ultra Protection Factor rating (UPF) as low as 5.
A UPF of 5 provides little sun protection and lets large amounts of sunlight and UV rays pass through. This can lead to skin damage, premature skin ageing, skin cancer and melanoma.
The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends sun protective clothing as the best way to protect your skin against the sun's damaging rays. SOLBARI UPF50+ garments provide the highest sun protection rating for fabrics and block out 98% of harmful UV rays.
