Babies' skin is very sensitive to the sun as children's defence systems are only established after the age of 3. With identical exposure, the effects of the sun are 2 to 3 times stronger on a child than on an adult. It is therefore very important to protect them effectively.
The fabric of this OLAIAN UV-resistant 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. The density of the textile fibres filters out UV rays, for long-lasting protection, even after washing.
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 UVB and 98% of UVA rays.
Although this set allows protection from the sun, phenomena such as reflections (from the water, sand, etc.), heat, time of day, etc., must be taken into account. When you wear this set, you must follow the relevant conduct: wear sunglasses, regularly apply an appropriate suncream, drink regularly, etc.
The minimum water temperature recommended for the use of this UV-protection shorty is 22°C if it is worn on its own. Please note that the presence of wind will have an impact that can cause discomfort when wet, making you feel colder.
The polyester textile is naturally quick drying. If there is wind, however, it is advisable to dry your baby and his clothes with a towel to reduce shivering.
