What does UPF 50+ mean?
UPF (ultraviolet protection factor) is an international standard that measures
the proportion of UV rays a fabric lets through to your skin.
A UPF of 50+ means that the fabric blocks at least 98% of UVB rays and 95% of UVA rays.
Behaviour in the sun
This T-shirt protects against UV rays, but it doesn’t provide complete sun protection. It is essential to consider other factors such as reflections of the sun (off sand, water, etc.), temperature, and time of day. For example, wear a hat and sunglasses, regularly apply sunscreen, and stay hydrated.
By making polyester from plastic bottles or used textiles, we have reduced the use of oil-based resources while preserving the quality and performance of the material.
