UV-CLOTHING PROVIDES BETTER
            PROTECTION THAN SUNSCREEN
            The best protection against harmful UV-radiation is
            provided by certified UV-protective clothing. It shields off
            radiation, does not have to be applied once again like
            sunscreen and therefore lasts all day. For the parts of the
            body uncovered by clothes sunscreen with a high sun
            protection factor and a headgear should be used.

            THE MORE UPF, THE BETTER
            The UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) indicated on UV-                98% SHIELDING
            protective clothing shows how much longer somebody                      OF UV-RADIATION
            wearing these clothes can stay in the sun without suffe-
            ring any damage to health. Therefore, the UPF-indication
            on textiles corresponds to the sun protection factor of
            sun-screens. This is based on the self-protection time
            of the skin, which varies considerably depending on the
            individual skin type.
            A product marked with UPF 50+ according to this
            standard blocks more than 98% of the harmful UV-rays.
