Did you know that most of the sun’s rays can cause melanoma as well as other forms of skin cancer? Even when it’s cloudy, those damaging little rays of havoc still reach your skin.
A sun hat can work as a natural barrier against these rays. The best protective sun hat to have in this day and time is the Emthunzini hat, which has built-in protection using the way the fabric is woven.
The fabric blocks ultraviolet radiation which is measured by a numerical rating, UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor). Testing the UPF involves exposing the material to Ultra Violet radiation (UVR) and then measuring how much is transmitted through the fabric.
The highest UPF any product can provide is a UPF50 + to give the best protection against UV radiation.
