The skin cancer foundation reminds us that, UV damage accumulated during childhood is strongly associated with an increased risk of skin cancer later in life.
Alarmingly, when dry, a regular cotton t-shirt provides an UPF of just 5-7. This means, many children are not receiving the protection they need, under their clothing, and that sunscreen application to exposed areas only, is not enough.
The impact of melanoma on Australians is alarming.
According to Melanoma Institute Australia:
- 1 Australian is told they have melanoma every 30 minutes
- 16,000 Australians will be diagnosed this year
- Melanoma is the most common cancer in 15–39-year old Australians
Fortunately, Sunbubs™ UPF50+ tested and approved fabric blocks 98% of harmful UVA and UVB rays, giving the highest protection guarantee. Together with a slip, slop, slap, slide philosophy, melanoma risk can be drastically reduced.
