As a mom we want to protect our children (plus ourselves) and sometimes we forget about things we really can’t see, like rays from the sun. My daughter loves the water and so most of our summer is at the pool or lake. I’m a redhead so you know I’m always in the shade or wearing a big hat. But with Coolibar I can wear clothing that protects me from those nasty rays. Woohoo! The fabric is rated according to an Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF). UPF 50+ is the highest rating available to sun protective clothing blocking 98 percent of UV radiation. Coolibar develops technical fabrics that are tested to ensure each product meets or exceeds their UPF 50+ standard. – Coolibar offers a UPF 50+ quality guarantee for superior sun protection items for the life of each garment. Coolibar products provide the same level of protection from the first use to the last time it’s worn.
Love the Coastal Mosaic collection!
Coolibar’s SUNTECT® fabric provides embedded protection. Mineral sunscreen ingredients such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are embedded into the fibers of several of the SUNTECT® line of fabrics to offer continuous protection. The SUNTECT® fabric is highly breathable with a four-way stretch that helps to keep you cool while protecting you from the sun.
My daughter would live in Coolibar clothing all summer if she could, she told me she loves how it feels plus it looks great on her. The colors are so vibrant and stylish. She wears her swimwear cover up everywhere!
