With our active, outdoor lifestyle and the intensity of the Australian sun, we know a thing or two about sun protection.
Australia invented sunscreen and the UPF rating system for fabrics. Australia is world renowned for being the global leader in skin cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
We started Solbari to create a sun protective clothing range that we would want to wear ourselves. We believe it is possible to enjoy the outdoors in style whilst staying protected from the sun.
Solbari UPF 50+ sun protective clothing incorporates fabrics which have been tested and rated UPF 50+ by the AustralianGovernment, but also includes design and function in mind to maximise the level of sun protection coverage and comfort.
Our horizons have expanded since we started as we are now the Australian leaders in sun protective clothing with customers in over 70 countries, but we remain focused on our original goal. We have expanded our UPF 50+ sun protective range to cater to people with sensitive skin conditions including eczema, psoriasis and lupus.
Our customer reviews from Google and Facebook are consistently above 4/5 and have been the recipient of the Skin & Cancer Healthy Skin award on multiple occasions.

Your skin is your largest organ and has a long memory. Sun exposure and ultraviolet (UV) damage is cumulative throughout your life. Research shows that sun damage contributes to more than 90% of wrinkles, brown spots, premature skin ageing as well as precancerous and cancerous skin lesions.
Limiting sun exposure is very important. As the UV rays cause the most damage to the skin.
It often takes many years and sometimes decades for the effects to become visible.
But the good news is that taking care of your skin form now onwards may be able to help you to reduce the probability of skin cancers and minimise skin ageing.
Dermatologists recommend UPF50+ sun protective clothing and a broad brim sun hat as the first line of defence against premature skin ageing, sunburn, skin cancer and melanoma. Sunscreen with a SPF rating above 30 should be applied to skin that is directly exposed to the sun.
