Skin Protection from O'Neill Rash Guards
Recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation, all O'Neill Rash Guards have a minimum of 30+ Ultra-violet Protection Factor (UPF) with most rated at 50+ UPF. What does this mean for you? The sun's ultra-violet rays are a primary cause of painful sunburn and are known to cause long term skin damage that has the potential to develop into skin related afflictions, the most prominent being skin cancer. The greater the UPF, the more sun protection the garment provides to your skin. The UPF protection scale represents the amount of UV rays that a protective garment allows through to your skin and is calculated by dividing 1 by the UPF rating. By way of examples, a 30+ UPF garment allows only 1/30th of the sun's harmful UV rays through or, said differently, blocks 96.67% of them. A 50+ UPF garment allows only 1/50th of the sun's UV rays, blocking 98% of them. Although there are other rash guards that have a higher UPF rating, today most skin care experts agree that the additional protection provided by higher UPF rated garments is generally considered inconsequential.
There are certainly important things to consider when deciding how to best protect your skin from the sun. A top quality Lycra rashguard will not lose its UV blocking properties when exposed to the water. Cotton tee shirts do not make a very good substitute. They start with a much lower level of UPF protection and that deteriorates even further when they get wet. This is primarily due to the cotton stretching when wet and allowing additional UV rays to penetrate through the weave of the shirt. Additionally, sunscreen creams and oils tend to wash off in the water requiring frequent reapplication to maintain protection. By reducing the amount of exposed skin you reduce the amount of sunscreen required and improve your overall chances to remain protected.
