5 myths about clothing with UV protection

5 myths about clothing with UV protection

1. “The clothes are warm. My son will be hot!”

The sun protection clothes selected by Palm uv clothing are soft, cool and light. In addition, they are made with recycled fabrics, from waste found in the ocean such as plastic bottles and regenerated fishing nets. The clothes were designed so that children are always comfortable, so the zippers are protected and the seams do not scratch!


2. “After playing in the water, they will have wet clothes on their bodies and may catch a cold."

At Palm uv clothing online store, you can find swimsuits, rash tops, shorts and many more. All products selected were designed to be used dry or wet. Even wet, our clothes block 98% of UV rays. It only takes a few minutes for the clothes to dry and the kids can safely continue on their adventures!


3. “Clothes with sun protection lose effectiveness over time, protection should decrease with washing." 

The effectiveness of the fabrics in Palm uv clothing clothing is attested by the UPF 50+ certification, so it doesn’t diminish over time, or after playing in the water or activities that promote sweating. All products block 98% of ultraviolet rays. In addition, the fabrics are resistant to salt and chlorine. To care of the pieces, we recommend rinsing them under running water after use and drying them in the shade.


4. “Clothes with sun protection are only for use on the beach." 

Ultraviolet rays are not just present at the beach or pool. They are also present in our daily lives, in school playgrounds, on walks in the park, on bike rides and in other outdoor activities. Therefore, it is very important that parents don’t forget about sun protection for children at all times. For example, they can wear a sun protective rash top and shorts in addition to a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses, as well as sunscreen on areas of the body that are not covered.


5. “Today is cloudy, so there is no need to protect from the sun." 

Foggy days are especially dangerous. Temperature and atmospheric conditions do not always correlate with the ultraviolet index. Therefore, on cloudy days or when it’s foggy, children must be protected from the sun. Even when sunlight appears to be less and the temperature is not high, ultraviolet radiation is still present because it passes through the clouds. They are what cause sunburn and skin cancer.

When it's windy, the effect is similar: the thermal sensation or the temperature itself are lower, but UV radiation is present and can also damage the skin. For clarity, it is recommended to consult the UV index daily.
