The Truth About Infant Sun Exposure
Did you know that infants younger than six months old do not have the ability to metabolize and excrete the chemicals often found in sunscreen, and should be kept out of direct sunlight altogether? Even babies older than six months need extra protection from the sun, and sunscreen alone just won’t cut it. In fact, it's recommended by skincare experts and pediatricians to dress babies in lightweight, sun-protective clothing, since just five sunburns in a person’s life can double their risk for melanoma, making it alarmingly clear the need for great sun protection throughout our lives.
Luckily, we make it easy to get the right sun-protective clothing for kids and adults of every age, starting with infants!
What is UPF 50+ Protection?
When it comes to protecting his delicate skin, it’s important to have a functional, breathable fabric with an Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) rating certified by the Skin Cancer Foundation.
The Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) is a rating that indicates the level of UV radiation a fabric allows to reach your skin. For instance, a baby boy swim shirt with a UPF rating of 30 to 49 offers average sun protection and qualifies for the Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation, but it’s not the best level of protection.
At UV Skinz®, we decided UPF 30-49 rated clothing just wasn't enough, and made all of our UPF rated clothing to be UPF 50+. This way, you know that when your baby is wearing one of our baby boy swim tops, he is dressed in the best sun protection, effectively blocking out 98% of the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays from ever reaching his skin. It’s just one of the many ways UV Skinz® is working hard to protect your family from toxic sun exposure!
