What is the difference between UPF and SPF?
UPF stands for “Ultraviolet Protection Factor” and it is used to rate fabrics and their protection against the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
SPF is used to rate lotions and skin care products.
What makes fabrics sun protective or UPF rated?
Our fabrics are tested by the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) and they determine what fabrics qualify as UPF 50+. The hats that qualify block 97.5% of the sun’s ultraviolet rays. There is no special chemical that creates this protection; it is how the fabric is woven that creates the protection. Please remember that only the skin that is shaded is protected.
For proper sun protection, we recommend that you wear sunscreen and sunglasses as well as a hat while out in the sun.
