Protecting our kids from the sun is extremely important. Australia has the highest incidence of skin cancer in the world. We also have more coastline per capita than anywhere else in the world. We want to make enjoying swimming, the beach and outdoors responsibly, fun, easy and SunSafe for both parents and children.
The longer we are exposed to the sun’s Ultra Violet Radiation (UVR) the greater the risk of melanoma and premature aging later in life. Your children’s soft skin is particularly vulnerable. Swimwear, Rashies and other clothing that are UPF50+ offer better protection against the sun than sunscreens. Read more about sun protection and how to take the best pre cautions on the Cancer Council website.
Sandy Feet Australia Swimwear and Rashies offers customers:
Highest Quality SunSafe UPF 50+ Fabrics that offer long lasting protection from the sun
Our swimwear and rashies have been tested by and meet the strict criteria of the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) - the Australian government's primary authority on sun radiation protection. In fact our rashies have been tested and proven to maintain their UPF rating for a minimum of 5 years. Visit the ARPANSA website for more information on UPF.
Chlorine Proof vs Chlorine Resistant
Our swimwear and rashies unique fabrics not only provide UPF50+ sun protection but unsurpassed quality that will not deteriorate in chlorine. Other swimwear and rashies made from Lycra and Elastane fabrics will break down in chlorine eventually – even when chlorine resistant. This significantly diminishes its sun protection value.
