Could UPF 50+ sun protective clothing replace sunscreen?

Solbari blog: Could UPF 50+ sun protective clothing replace sunscreen?

So much reliance is placed on sunscreen in terms of sun protection, but relatively few people are aware of, or give consideration to, UPF 50+ sun protective clothing. Why is that?

Johanna Young, co-founder of Solbari commented, “Sunscreen is an effective means of sun protection but should be seen as a last resort. Dermatologists agree that UPF 50+ sun protective clothing and broad brim sun hats are the most effective means of preventing sunburn, skin ageing and skin cancer”.

UPF 50+ sun protection clothing is seen as the most effective way to prevent sunburn, skin ageing and skin cancer

UPF 50+ clothing is seen by medical professionals as a primary means of sun protection because it does not rely on being applied to the skin like sunscreen. Regular clothing usually has some level of sun protection, but UPF 50+ sun protective clothing only allows up to 2% of UV radiation through to the skin.

Consumers are becoming more aware of the environmental impact of sunscreen on our environment, particularly our oceans. Chemicals from sunscreens are known to have an adverse impact the ecology of coral reefs.

There are a number of reasons to consider UPF 50+ sun protective clothing as a primary means of sun protection. Solbari is the leading UPF 50+ sun protective clothing brand in Australia. Solbari offers a range of sun protection clothing, broad brim sun hats, UV arm sleeves, sun umbrellas.

On diagnosis, I was concerned as I did not know anything about skin cancers & did not think that I would be the victim of this disease. I was reassured that BCC was quite common & relatively easily treatable.

In July 2020, I noticed a tiny lump on my ear lobe. In Jan 2021, a friend noticed the lump and suggested I see a specialist. I saw a skin cancer specialist, who removed it and sent it off for a biopsy. 5 days later, the doctor called and said, "you have a level 4 melanoma".
