Sun Protective Clothing is always going to work better than sunscreens, simply because they block both the UVA and UVB Rays, and they don't wash off after swimming or after a couple hours of being on the skin.
The SPF in sunscreens only measure the filtering UVB rays- which are associated with burning and skin cancer. UVA penetrates deeper into the skin causing skin cancer and premature aging so it's vital that these rays are blocked as well.
Melanoma and Skin Cancers are dramatically on the rise in Canada and throughout the rest of the world, so we have to do our part which is to be more diligent with our sun safety regimes.
Sun Protective clothing has come a long way over the last decade, the styles are more fashionable, the tailoring more favourable to many different body types, and the fabric more breathable then ever before. UV Couture garments are designed by women and made for women. Our fabrics are made up of a poly/spandex material, since synthetic fibers such as polyester tend to block more UV radiation than natural fibres such as cotton.
We take a lot into consideration when designing our garments, as we want women to look and feel gorgeous while she is doing a beautiful thing for herself- which is taking care of her skin.
We want to keep you safe when outdoors, so don't miss out on our beautiful selection of sun protective wear.
Luv, The UV Couture Family xo
