Dec. 19, 2009 - PRLog -- Houston, TX -- While traditional sunscreen lotions block some of the sun's harmful rays, most people use too little lotion or apply incorrectly to be effective. Additionally, geographic variables in UV intensities, unique body chemistry’s, perspiration and wear also reduce the effectiveness. UV protection fabrics provide consistent and effective UV protection under all conditions.The basic science behind UV protection fabric is chemical UV inhibitors and UV Blocking weave technology. To receive a UV Block certification, sun protection fabrics must meet stringent industry and governmental guidelines. UVBLOCK® certified means that

The fabric has been tested for ultraviolet light transmission

It is then laundered 40 times and submitted to 100 hours of UV light

Once again tested for UV Light transmission then given a certified rating and labeled

ONLY fabrics tested by the International UV Testing Laboratories are UVBLOCK® certified.

ALL SPF FABRICS® are UVBLOCK certified, so you can be assured of the Best in Sun Protection.

The FDA regulates any fabric or garment that makes specific claims of a medical nature. FDA approved fabrics are guaranteed to reduce UV radiation by 97% or more. The Solar Protection Factory produces several UVBlock fabrics. SolarWeave®, a lightweight, woven, nylon fabric; SolarKnit®, a cotton jersey treated with UV block; and SolarTwill®, a heavier treated fabric. All three fabrics are FDA approved and commonly used in UV protection garments and accessories.

Although UV protection fabric is usually found in outdoor garments, one company that specializes in UV blocking products for indoor tanning salons has taken the SolarWeave®, fabric and created products that protect the hair and face from UV rays while tanning indoors.

If you are going to spend time outdoors, consider UV protection fabrics as a viable alternative to sunscreen. UVBlock fabrics provide substantially better UV protection and you look good doing it.
