Those of us who were children in the groovy 60’s and 70’s grew up with the idea that sunburns were normal and suntans were a sign of good health. Some of us fair skinned kids wore white t-shirts (which only have a sun protection factor of 7) over our bathing suits, but never wore any sun block. Unfortunately there are many adults today who are suffering the consequences of that cultural norm. We now have plenty of research detailing the damaging effect of UV radiation to our skin. In addition to sunburn, over exposure to ultraviolet radiation not only causes wrinkles and sun spots, but can also cause skin cancer and eventually Melanoma.
The combination of sun and water is a magical part of our childhood and grUVywear was developed to let us keep it that way. Our grUVy style and comfortable fit, made from high quality UPF 50+ fabric, blocks out 98% of the sun’s harmful UV rays. grUVywear’s UV sun protective product line lets us have fun in the sun with the peace of mind that our skin is protected from the sun’s damaging UV rays.
Our comprehensive UV protective range covers all sizes from newborns to Adult XXL Made without chemicals, grUVywear’s UV protective product line is extensive: sun protective swim shirts, both long sleeve UV shirts and shorts sleeve UV shirts in a variety of colors and prints, sun protective swim shorts and sun protective swim skirts. Our vibrant and attractive designs mimic summer surf rash guards and can be worn in and out of the water for all day sun protection.
In addition to UV protective wear, grUVywear also offers comfortable activewear. grUVywear athletic sport shorts are available in bright colors and fashionable prints. grUVywear sports shorts can be used for volleyball, soccer, field hockey, lacrosse, gymnastics, and dance or can be worn under any clothing.
grUVywear headbands coordinate perfectly with our grUVywear UV protective wear and grUVywear athletic spandex sport shorts. Available in a variety of bright colors and stylish prints, they are stretchy, comfortable and are perfect for sporting occasions and every day. Since more than 50% of skin cancer occurs on the face, wearing a baseball cap or other hat with a brim is important for children of all ages. That is why grUVywear offers sun hats as well. Of course sun protection is not complete without sunscreen for those areas clothing cannot protect. You should have a UVA/UVB broad spectrum sunscreen at least 30+SPF.
