What is UPF Clothing? In this post we are going to share what the best sun safe clothing are and which to choose.
Being sun-smart never looked better! We are now seeing many options in clothing lines for keeping our skin protected from the suns ultraviolet rays, and many of them are very trendy! Unlike SPF in sunscreens, which represents UVB blockage, UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) in clothing represents how much of the suns rays (both UVA and UVB)are able to penetrate through your layer of clothing onto skin.
The blue shirt pictured below is from Columbia Clothing and it has an SPF of 50. Image has a link to the item on their website
