An average cotton t-shirt may not safeguard you at the beach let alone on the street. When dry a white cotton t-shirt only provides an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) of 5-7*. Even worse when wet from the pool the protection level drops to about UPF 3 exposing us to UV radiation we may be unaware of.
Today 90% of skin cancers and premature aging are a result of compounded UV exposure. Coolibar s ZnO t-shirts polos tunics cover-ups dresses hoodies and pants are super soft comfortable and UPF 50+ blocking 98% of UV rays wet or dry. All our fabrics are guaranteed UPF 50+ from the first time you wear our product to the day you retire it.
Since UV damage is cumulative and irreversible starting kids and teens with UPF clothing provides the best option when it comes to outdoor activities. With ultra-soft fabrics like our ZnO kids fall in love with Coolibar t-shirts which we design to keep them sun safe year-round.
