TO SAFELY ENJOY THE SUN

Wear the
right clothes

An average cotton tee-shirt is only UPF (ultraviolet protection factor) 7 and drops to UPF 3 when wet. Coolibar sun protective clothing is UPF 50+ even when wet.

Protect
your hair

The sun's UV rays erode the outer layer of your hair, breaking down the melanin and making hair dry, coarse, wiry brittle and breakable. Wear a UPF 50+ hat, always.

Wear a hat that
covers your face,
neck, tops of ears
and shoulders

For every inch of brim you wear, you reduce your lifetime risk of skin cancer by 10%. So a 6" brim means 60% risk reduction.

Protect yourself
on overcast days

The sun's UVA and UVB rays are year-round, and up to 80% of the sun's ultraviolet radiation penetrates clouds and fog.

Wear SPF 15+ or
gloves on hands

Hands see the sun more than any other skin and thus show more aging than any other part of your body.

Store a long
sleeve cover-up
in the car

Sun-related aging, spots and wrinkles occur daily right in the front seat of your car. Glass effectively blocks UVB, and windshields are specifically treated to block UVA as well, but a car?s side and rear windows allow UVA to penetrate.

Make UPF 50+
clothing your
best antiaging
defense

About 90% of visible skin changes such as aging, wrinkles, brown spots and leathery skin are caused by the sun's ultraviolet rays and can be minimized with Coolibar clothing.

Block UVA/UVB
rays with our
fabric protection

Millions of protective tiny minerals are woven into the fibers of our fabrics and will never wash out.

Wear UV-Blocking
Sunglasses

Eyesight is damaged by the sun as much as skin. Prevent corneal sunburns, melanomas and aging vision with sunglasses with lenses large enough to cover the skin around your eyes.

company to receive
the skin cancer foundation's seal
of approval
