What is UPF 50+ and Why Should a Boys Rash Guard Have it?

When shopping for boys swim rash guards, you may have noticed the term “UPF.” This stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor and is a rating used to indicate the level of UV radiation the boys rash guard fabric allows to reach the skin. While boys rash guard shirts with UPF ratings of 30 to 49 qualify for the Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation, UV Skinz® boys rash guard swimwear come standard with UPF 50+ sun protection, effectively blocking out 98% of the sun’s harmful UVA/UVB rays from reaching his skin.
