    How does UV protection clothing work?

    Two methods of sun protection

    We tailor our UV protection to each of our products, from UPF25 - 50+. You might not expect light colours to provide UV protection, but your children can wear these pieces in the summer sun with confidence.

    What is UPF?

    WHAT DOES UPF MEAN?

    UPF ranges from 15 - 50+. This scale indicates how long your skin is protected from UVA and UVB rays.

    For example, clothing rated UPF 40 provides 40 times the protection compared to bare skin.

    FAQ

    Even light summer fabrics and provide good UV protection. We've added UV protection technology to a range of summer clothing, offering protection from UPF25 - 50+.
    We tested our UV protection through a third party organisation, who found that protection remains the same, even after ten washes.<br><br>For fabrics that are designed to absorb UV rays, the protection may gradually decrease after several years of repeated washing.<br><br>Fabrics that are designed to reflect UV rays should not lose their protection, as the reflective material is in the very fibres of the fabric. If fibres thin over repeated washing and wear, UV protection may reduce.
    Through preliminary testing by a third-party organisation, UV protection has been confirmed to last after ten washes. This does not mean it will lose its effect after ten washes, but how long it lasts will depend on the way the garment is worn and washed, so we cannot give a specific number of washes it will last.
