Sunshine includes rays of invisible ultraviolet (UV) radiation, and overexposure to UV rays can lead to sunburn, accelerated skin aging, and of course skin cancer. Sunscreen and your clothing are the two main forms of significant UV protection.
All fabrics disrupt UV radiation to some degree. Clothing that does the best job at disrupting UV radiation carries an Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) value. UPF ratings range from 15 (good) to 50+ (excellent). SwimZip has a UPF value of 50+ and blocks 99% of those nasty, cancer causing UVA and UVB rays.
Some individuals have an elevated need for UPF-rated clothing, including:
Fair-skinned, sun-sensitive people
People spending extended time at high elevation, in equatorial regions or on reflective surfaces (such as snow or water).
SwimZip is happy that we can help kids have a ball at the beach, and fun at the pool for hours without having parents worry about the reapplying sunscreen every two hours. You can get your SwimZip at http://www.SwimZip.com
