PROTECTION FACTOR (UV)
Baby's skin is very sensitive to the sun, because kids' defence systems only become effective after the age of 3. For identical exposure, the effects of the sun are two to three times stronger on a kid than on an adult. Therefore, it is important to protect them properly.
UPF is a worldwide standardised sun protection value (Ultra-Violet Protection Factor). It defines the textile's degree of protection, and more precisely, the proportion of transmitted UV rays. It must keep out at least 95% of UV rays to meet the standard. UPF 50+ means that the textile blocks at least 95% of UVA and 98% of UVB.
Although these UV-protection swimsuit bottoms provide protection from the sun, other factors such as reflections (from water, sand, etc.), heat, time of day, and so on, must be taken into account. Wearing these swimsuit bottoms does not exempt the wearer from following the relevant advice: wear sunglasses, regularly apply suitable sun cream, wear a hat, wear a UV protection top or T-shirt, drink regularly, etc.
By recycling plastic bottles or used textiles to produce our polyester, we are reducing our use of petroleum-based resources while retaining the qualities and performance of the fabric during use.
UV-protection swimsuit bottoms developed and tested by our design teams in Hendaye, France. The components used for this product are laboratory tested to ensure the best possible quality and durability.
