FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

 Why Sun Protective Clothing?

The signs of aging – wrinkles, age spots, sagging skin - are caused by sun damage. Lightweight clothing leaves you exposed to the harmful effects of UV rays. Sun protective clothing, certified to have an adequate UPF, can be worn for both anti-aging and health reasons. Can Clothing Save my Skin and Slow the Aging Process? Yes. As most people do not wear sunblock under their clothes, sun protective clothing with a UPF of 30+ can protect your skin when you are outdoors or in direct sunlight through glass.

 What is UPF?

UPF stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor and indicates how much of the sun’s UV rays are absorbed by the fabric before it reaches your skin. A UPF rating of 50 means that only or 2% of UV radiation (both UVA and UVB rays) can penetrate fabric. By comparison, the average white t-shirt has a UPF of 5 and lets in 10 times the UV rays.

 

 What is the Difference between UPF and SPF?

SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor and used for rating sunscreens and other sun-protective products. It measures the amount of time it takes for sun-exposed skin to redden, while UPF measures the amount of UV radiation that penetrates a fabric and reaches the skin.

 

 What are UVA Rays?

UVA rays account for 95% of the UV radiation reaching the earth’s surface. They penetrate through clouds, glass, and clothing. Also, UVA rays are present with relatively equal intensity throughout the year. Although arguably less intense then UVB rays, they are 30-50 times more prevalent, and sink deeper into the skins epidermal layer.

 

 What are UVB Rays?

UVB rays are the chief cause of skin reddening and sunburn. They also play a role in the development of skin cancer and aging. While UVB rays can burn and damage your skin year-round, they do not however penetrate through glass or clothing.

 

Doesn’t all clothing protect me from the sun?

No. Many consumers are surprised to learn that most regular summer clothing actually provides less protection than a SPF 30 sunscreen (Gies et al, 1998; Gambichler et al, 2001)

 

Should I be worried about vitamin D deficiencies?

Some studies assert that practicing safe sun habits can lead to a vitamin D deficiency. It is true that UV radiation stimulates the body to manufacture vitamin D. However, overexposure to UV rays can weaken your immune system, reducing your defense against infection and cancers. So, one of the best ways to meet vitamin D daily requirements is through foods and multivitamin supplements (1,000 International Units (IU) daily).

 

If I have dark skin am I immune to skin cancer?

No. Skin cancer does not discriminate. Though caucasians are more likely to develop skin cancer, people with darker skin color are also susceptible to the disease. In fact, Asian-Americans and African-Americans tend to have more advanced cases of melanoma at diagnosis, which can account for higher mortality rates.

 

What are the ABCDEs of Melanoma?

The first five letters of the alphabet are a guide to the early warning signs of melanoma:

A= asymmetry, B= border, C= color, D= diameter, E= evolving (or changing)
