Living with sensitive skin can be challenging, especially if you have a chronic condition such as psoriasis, lupus, or eczema. At Solbari, we also know that sun protection is crucial for anyone with sensitive skin, as exposure to the sun's harmful UV rays can trigger flare-ups and exacerbate existing skin conditions. This is why it’s important to choose sun protection that’s also gentle on your skin.

UPF50+ clothing is a great way to stay safe in the sun, and when it comes to clothing, some fabrics can help alleviate skin irritation caused by contact. Cotton and bamboo are particularly well-suited for those with sensitive skin, as these fabrics are very soft and can help reduce irritation and inflammation in already sensitive areas. They also naturally regulate your body temperature, so you won't feel too hot or too cold in different climates.

So how do we care for your skin while keeping it safe?

We created our UPF50+ Sensitive fabric to help those with sensitive skin and skin allergies, including psoriasis and eczema, so that you can enjoy the sun without worrying about damaging your skin. Our UPF50+ Sensitive fabric is made from a blend of cotton and bamboo and not only provides gentle care for sensitive skin, but also offers superior sun protection, blocking over 98% of UV rays.

Every batch of fabric we produce is rigorously tested in independent laboratories and complies with the highest Australian, New Zealand and American rating standards, while also being certified to retain its UPF50+ rating after a 50-cycle wash test and 120 hours of simulated sunlight. Approved with STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®, the fabric is free from harmful chemicals and safe for people and the environment.

We’ve received lots of positive feedback from customers who manage chronic skin conditions and have found our UPF50+ Sensitive fabric to keep them comfortable and safe, helping many enjoy the great outdoors whilst still keeping their skin calm and happy.
