UV protection even when wet
The fabric of this OLAIAN anti-UV product blocks at least 98% of UVB radiation and 95% of UVA (UPF 50+). This guarantees effective protection from the sun. It can be used both in and out of the water, for water or nautical sports.
What does UPF 50+ mean?
UPF is a sun protection factor (Ultra Violet Protection Factor) and is standardised worldwide. It defines the protection level of a fabric and more precisely the proportion of UV rays it lets through.
To meet the standards, it must block at least 95% of UV rays. UPF 50+ means that the fabric blocks at least 95% of UVA and 98% of UVB rays.
Protect the little ones!
Young skin is very sensitive to the sun as kids' defence systems are established after the age of 3. With identical exposure, the effects of the sun are 2 to 3 times stronger on a kid than on an adult. It is therefore important to protect them effectively.
Behaviour when in the sun
Although this hat protects from the sun, phenomena such as reflections (from water, sand ...), heat, time of day, etc. must be taken into account. Wearing this hat does not exempt the wearer from following the relevant advice: wear sunglasses, regularly apply an appropriate sun cream, wear an anti-UV top or shorty, drink regularly, etc.
