Many don't realise that not all fabrics protect the same from the sun. Did you know that a regular white cotton t-shirt may have the equivalent protection of wearing SPF5 sunscreen? All Solbari products have the highest sun protective rating available in the world for fabrics and are tested in Australia with a UPF50+ certification, which is the equivalent to wearing SPF50+ sunscreen all day long.

This blog post is for information purpose only.
Any role which involves being outside for more than an hour a day means that you are routinely exposed to the sun and therefore at risk of sun burn, skin ageing and skin cancer. Over 90% of skin cancers are caused by sun exposure.
We have listed a number of jobs which will expose you to a higher risk of sun exposure and therefore skin cancer.
Individuals who spend long periods of time outdoors for work may be eligible to claim tax deductions for sun protective products each year.
