Wearing a certified UPF50+ sun hat helps reduce your exposure to the sun’s damaging UVA and UVB rays, essential for not only protecting your skin from aging but protecting the deeper layers of your skin preventing the possibility of irreversible sun damage that could lead to skin cancers. Our UPF50+ certified sun hats have undergone extensive testing by independent laboratories in Australia and South Africa and have been specially verified as meeting the strict UPF50+ regulations. Both countries are known for their sunny climates and high UV levels and have a focus on premium sun protection. Sun hats featured with the UPF50+ logo will therefore offer your skin the best protection against the harmful effects of the sun. A sun hat with a UPF50+ rating blocks 97,5% of the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays.
