why UPF 50+ Protection is Important During Selection of Headwear

UPF 50+ Protection with Headwear

It is time to wrap our heads with headwears around the fact that Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) is very important. Did you know that most skin cancers are caused by harmful Ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun?

Let’s understand the basics – UV, UPF & SPF

UV stands for Ultraviolet rays that emit from the sun and are harmful for the skin. UV radiation is not just cancerogenic, a source of deadly skin cancer but it also causes various problems like sunburn, premature aging of the skin, wrinkles, leathery skin, liver spots, actinic keratosis, and solar elastosis.

There are 2 popular ways to keep ourselves safe from these harmful effects – UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) clothing and SPF (Sun Protection Factor) lotions.

While the SPF lotions are common amongst people who tend to spend a lot of time outdoors, another safe way to protect us from the UV rays, in to wear fabric that rate 50+ in Ultraviolet Protection Factor.

UPF 50+ protection headwear is a necessity for cancer patients after chemo and hair loss as it leaves them considerably unprotected to the harmful rays of the sun and could lead to burns, rashes and more.

What type of UPF clothing can be used?

UPF fabrics are used to make efficient headwear, like hats, scarves, beanies and more. The fabric indicates how much UV radiation (both UVB and UVA) penetrates and reaches our skin.

A UPF50+ fabric can block 98% of the sun’s rays thus reducing the exposure of harmful UV rays and keeping our skin significantly safe from risk. Brim Sun hats made with UPF 50+ fabric, UPF 50+ Sun Protection Caps, and headwear made with UPF 50+ Protection are important to keep our skin safe from the harmful UV rays.

Why UPF 50+ protected brim hats are important while selecting headwear?

There is a report that claims that there are “many of the more than 5 million skin cancers diagnosed annually could be prevented by protecting skin from excessive sun exposure and not using indoor tanning devices.” Reports have also stated that “Topical SPF is a great tool, but it also isn’t perfect.”

That is where we also have the option of UPF 50+ Sun Protection Cap, clothing and accessories, especially wide brimmed hats.

There are several types of hats available in the market, from star hats to regular fabric Brim Sun hat-UPF 50+, these are good for summer ventilation but are not protective against the harmful sun rays. So when you select a hat, it is important to ensure that is made with UPF50+ certification.

Where can I buy UPF hats and more?

Wide brimmed hats, scarves and beanies can be a reusable and inexpensive, style quotient to use as personal protection for cancer patients. These hats greatly reduce exposure to UV rays and help protect the exposed head of cancer patients.

Our hats come the materials - Bamboo Viscose. The Headscarves products are styled Bamboo viscose headwrap turban, hats, caps to ensure the safety measures are in place and designed to look good.
