UV clothing from Coolibar

Coolibar gets its name from the eucalyptus tree found in beautiful Australia. Just like the tree, the Coolibar brand offers protection and cooling from the rays of the sun. Because Coolibar focuses solely on making UV clothing, they are the only true specialist in this. The brand uses the ZnO SUNTECT® technique. In the ZnO SUNTECT® there are millions of tiny particles of zinc oxide hidden in every fiber of the fabric. This ingredient is also used in the better sunscreens to block UVB and UVA. An ingredient that can also treat burnt skin or mild skin irritations. These called ZnO particles cannot wear out or be removed in the washing machine. It provides good health and garments with a long life.<

The importance of sun protective clothing

Unfortunately, not all clothing protects against the sun's rays equally well. This depends, among other things, on the fabric, the textile and the moisture of the fabric. Would you like your clothing to protect you properly against UV radiation? Then always choose UV-resistant clothing. The special clothing offers protection of around SPF 50. Not only when the clothing is dry, but also when it is wet. In this way you are optimally protected against the sun. UV-resistant clothing is a very important addition to applying sunscreen and seeking shade. Enjoying the outdoors undisturbed, that's what we call it. Why not wear normal clothes? Of course you can. You can protect the skin with, for example, a wrap, but pay attention to the material of the fabric. If the fabric is light in color and thin, it allows much more UV radiation through. Let's take a simple dry white t-shirt as an example: this only offers SPF 15 protection. If that t-shirt gets wet, it lets even more UV radiation through. And that's why choosing UV-resistant clothing is no superfluous luxury. UV-resistant clothing prevents serious burns. To help prevent skin cancer and other nasty conditions, the need to wear UV clothing is huge. But even if there is no visible burn, prolonged sunbathing can cause damage to the skin. This is precisely why it is so important to protect the skin from the sun, even when it is not burning. Apply a fresh layer of sunscreen every two hours and seek out as much shade as possible between noon and 3pm.

Good protection is key, but keep enjoying the sun

It is extremely important to enjoy the sun. All the wonderful warm sunshine! Who wouldn't want that. But what is sometimes forgotten is that you have to embrace the sun, only in moderation. Because there is no need to be afraid of the sun. The sun makes you feel happy and is also very good for your health. You just have to make sure your skin doesn't burn. And there are several ways to do that. For example, by applying a good sun block, by covering your skin with good UV clothing or by seeking shade. And you can choose how you like to do that!

The effect of UV clothing

UV-protective clothing, it sounds good! But, how does this special clothing work? The clothing from Coolibar is made of fibres. For example nylon, cotton or polyester. And all these fibres have a different amount of UV protection of their own. The denser the fabric is woven, the more protection the garment offers your body. But also the colour of the garment plays an important role, as well as whether the garment is wet or dry. The material with which Coolibar's UV clothing is made has been tested in a laboratory to be the most favourable on all these fronts. The fabrics are tightly woven and are generally equipped with so-called UV absorbers or titanium. This substance can also be found in sunscreen. Coolibar fabrics are lightweight, stretchy, breathable and quick-drying. Even the best sunscreen can't compete with this!

Sunscreen vs. UV clothing

A sunscreen (spf 30) provides 97% protection against UVB radiation. UV clothing offers 98% protection against the sun's rays. UV clothing also protects against UVA radiation compared to sun block. With sunscreen, this is only the case if it is stated on the packaging. For people with sensitive skin, UV clothing is a good solution. For children, a UV suit can be ideal. That way they are well protected from the sun and can play undisturbed.

Coolibar gloves

>UV gloves always provide the perfect protection for the hands. Gloves offer protection from the cold, which is the main reason why they are used, but they also offer protection from the sun's rays. Your hands are a sensitive area and therefore a part of the body that needs the right protection. The skin on the hands is thin and can therefore easily suffer from the negative effects of the sun. With Coolibar's UV gloves you don't run any risks and you can ensure your hands are both protected and warm. In what situation can you use UV gloves? That's easy! For example, during a trek through the desert or across a large, open area. You limit skin damage such as sunburn and pigmentation. So, are you going on a long hike during your holidays? Then don't forget to pack UV gloves in your suitcase!

Coolibar facemasks

Like SPF with sunscreen, UPF is a classification system for fabrics. It indicates which parts of the UV rays can penetrate a particular fabric. A UPF rating of 25 means that the fabric lets 1/25 or 4% of UV rays through, and a UPF 50 garment 1/50 or 2%. So even if you wear a UPF 50 mask, you still risk getting sunburned. This is precisely why it is so important to wear a layer of sunscreen underneath your clothing. Most people may not always wear the mask outside. So make sure that SPF becomes a regular part of your daily routine. That way, you're guaranteed lifelong protection. With a UV facemask from Coolibar you give your face the optimal protection against the sun's radiation. Of course you should make sure you protect yourself well with sun block and then wear the face mask over it. All Coolibar face masks offer UPF 50 protection. They are developed to protect against 98% of UVA-UVB rays. Please note that the UV facemasks are not designed to prevent the transmission of airborne viruses or diseases.

Coolibar hats and caps

Wearing a protective hat when the sun shines has many advantages for people. Not only does it protect the skin, it also ensures that the sun does not sting the eyes. For example, if you prefer not to wear sunglasses. In this situation, a sun protection hat or cap is the perfect solution. By wearing a Coolibar sun hat or cap, your skull also gets enough protection. This is a spot that people generally do not worry about very much, but the skull can burn badly if it comes into contact with the sun for too long. Are you going walking, cycling or fishing? With a Coolibar hat or cap you can enjoy an outing in nature undisturbed. The hair stays out of the face, which is extra handy for both women and men with longer hair. Besides all these practical advantages Coolibar also makes many cool hats for men that make sure the outfit looks good. The protection that the UV-resistant hats and caps from Coolibar offer against the sun and its UV radiation is extremely high. Thanks to a UPF 50 protection, the hats and caps block up to 98% of all harmful radiation. This reduces the chance of skin cancer. And that is exactly what Coolibar is fighting for, day after day. At an adult age the skin of the face and the neck is already exposed to the sun and its UV radiation more often. That's why it's extra important to prevent further damage. Wear a UV-resistant hat from Coolibar to avoid damage to the body.

Coolibar longsleeve shirts

Some clothing does not cover the body completely. If it does, it allows UV rays through, which means that the body is not sufficiently protected against the sun. You often don't realise this, because people quickly assume that a long-sleeved shirt provides enough coverage. If you want to be sure of good protection from the sun, it is wise to choose clothing that has been especially made for this purpose. Choose Coolibar then. Not convinced yet? These are the advantages of UV-protective clothing:

1. UV protective clothing protects with at least factor 50 compared to sunscreen, even if the clothing gets wet.

2. UV protective clothing dries quickly and has a breathable fabric.

3. UV protective clothing is easy to rinse out. This is often more difficult with cotton shirts.

What exactly is a long sleeve shirt? A long sleeve shirt is a shirt with long sleeves. A UV-protective long sleeve shirt offers the right protection over the entire upper body, so that the sun's rays cannot penetrate the fabric. This is very handy to know, but even more handy to wear. By wearing a Coolibar long sleeve shirt you reduce the chance of sunburn. In addition, wearing a long sleeve shirt reduces the chance of skin cancer. And that is what Coolibar is committed to, day and night. Because although the sun is sometimes one of your best friends, it is also a friend who can sometimes cause you stress. Sometimes you only have to look up at the sun for a moment and you can already receive an excess of UV radiation. So the old saying goes sometimes, because anything with the word 'too' in it is not good. And too much UV radiation is not good for the body. Therefore, women and men should wear a UV-protective long sleeved shirt. That's the only way to make sure you can enjoy the outdoors undisturbed! The shirts are available for both men and women, so there's plenty of choice.
