It’s still summer and the hot sun calls for high SPF sunscreen, but there are other ways to protect us from these harmful rays. Obviously, clothes protect us from the sun beating down directly on our skin, but did you know that our clothing has a sun protection rating, just like sunscreen? Clothing is rated by UPF.
UPF stands for Ultra Violet Protective Factor. What does this mean exactly? This refers to how much ultraviolet radiation gets absorbed within fabric before it reaches your skin. UPF is rated by a number. The higher the number the more protection your skin receives.
UPF Rating of 15 or 20 is Good
UPF Rating of 25 to 35 is Great
UPF Rating of 40 to 50+ is Excellent
All clothes have, at the very least, a minimal amount of UV protection. Clothes specifically designed for sun protection are usually labeled with a UPF rating. Our Yoga & Athleisure collection has a 50+ UPF rating! You can spend as much time as you want in the sun! Not only will you be protected from the sun, but you will stay cool as well.
Our Yoga & Athleisure collection is made with EcoFabric™ that has moisture wicking properties to keep you cool and comfortable while you are in the sun, working out or any other activity!
