About UV Protection Swimsuits:
You may feel that wearing normal clothing can protect you from the sun UV radiation; but this is not true. Not all sunscreens provide the same sun protection (sunscreen UV protection is measured in SPF - Sun Protection Factor), and not all sunglasses provide the same eye protection (eye UV protection is measured in EPF - Eye Protection Factor); the same applies to clothing which is measured in UPF - Ultraviolet Protection Factor. Therefore, it is very important to make sure the type of sun protection clothing or UV swimwear you use on the beach have been tested and certified to offer the highest UPF rating of UPF50+ (blocks >97.5% of the sun UV radiation).
You can find sun protection clothing and UV swimwear products online from several suppliers; however only few have the right certification or their fabric have been tested for protection against UV radiation. EcoStinger UV protection swimsuits have been certified by ARPANSA and the highest sun protection rating of UPF50+ have been awarded to EcoStinger fabric http://www.ecostinger.com/fabric.php
Skin Cancer Prevention:
The best way to prevent skin cancer caused by UV radiation is to protect your skin from the sun. Also, it is very important to protect children from an early age, since research has found that most sun damage happens before age 15. It is best to wear sun protective clothing when exposed to the sun, and specially when swimming, and use sunscreen on exposed skin whenever you can.
Also, you should be aware of UV radiation which can be reflected by sand, water, snow, and ice. UV radiation can go through light clothing, windshields, windows, and clouds. Wear long sleeves and long pants, a hat with a wide brim, and sunglasses that absorb UV. Use sunscreen lotions (at least SPF15) where possible. You can find UPF50+ ARPANSA certified sun protection clothing for kids, women and men at EcoStinger http://www.ecostinger.com.
The most common place where you can be over-exposed to the sun UV radiation is on the beach. Therefore a special type of sun clothing is required which can give you the right skin protection and the freedom you expect to feel when spending your day swimming, sailing, surfing or simply walking on the sands. The ozone protects Earth from harmful UV radiation. Ozone depletion and weather variations cause different amounts of UV radiation to reach the Earth. To check the UV index in your city or country visit the Environmental Protection Agency website or visit http://www.ecostinger.com/uv_info_links.php for UV links.
