DESIGNED FOR OPTIMAL PROTECTION
THE UV-EXTRA™ PRODUCT LINE
Your children are unpredictable : swimming in the sea then cycling, sea at the beginning of the day and swimming pool again. Weather forecast : sunny weather, high temperature.
We designed the UV-EXTRA™ line of products to accompany your children in their active lives, in even more situations. Our innovative technology is made for those times when comfort and protection take priority over UV . Designed to provide protection, flexibility, functionality and style in their lives, they can now have more adventures, say yes more often and do more every day.
NEW PRODUCTS. NEW ADVANTAGES
UVEXTRA™ technology offers a wide range of benefits. You'll find this technology in the suits and rashguards. Whatever your needs, they are all designed to offer maximum protection.
THE SCIENCE OF PROTECTION
We've been innovating UV protection for a decade. We study how the body reacts to different conditions and activities to create technologies that make you more comfortable, more often. Whether you're in the park taking a walk, on the beach or hiking trail, or in the pool, our technologies are designed to be with you whenever you need them, wherever you need them.
THE BEST FOR YOUR CHILDREN
Today, being UV STANDARD 801 certified means :
- Ensure consumer safety with the identification of the sun protection factor (UPF) taking into account the conditions of use and aging of textiles.
- Proving the effectiveness of the product against ultraviolet radiation.
- International recognition.
- To propose a new alternative for consumers concerned about their health and well-being
WHY CHOOSE THE 80+ ?
Because your children's skin is very vulnerable to the sun, UPF 80+ ensures maximum protection in real-life conditions.
Our UV Standard 801 certified products have been tested and certified against UV rays.
To ensure the best protection for your children, we have tested new and used products:
BEFORE AND AFTER WASHING.
The UV Standard 801 certification guarantees a protection of the epidermis against the solar rays.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE 50+ AND THE 80+.
- Tests on new product
- 97.5% of UV rays blocked
- Protects against UVA and UVB rays
- Tests on worn, stretched and wet products
- 99% of UV rays blocked
- Protects against UVA and UVB
Despite a T-shirt, the skin may appear red. Basically, any fabric offers some protection from UV. The denser and darker the fabric, the more protection it offers. But a heavy black poncho is not ideal for summer. Only a dry white cotton shirt, has just a UPF of 10 which can go down to 2 when wet. The UV protection of textiles by moisture, stretching, abrasion and washing is significantly reduced.
