UPF 50+ is the maximum sun protective rating achievable for fabrics.
UPF stands for ultraviolet protection factor and is the sun protective rating measure for fabrics.
A fabric which has been awarded a UPF 50+ rating by the Australian Government is considered to provide excellent protection.
ARPANSA is the Australian Government agency that undertakes the UPF testing and rating and has done so since 1990.
Australia is the global leader in terms of skin cancer prevention, detection and treatment.
Solbari is the leading sun protective clothing brand in Australia with customers in over 60 countries.

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.
