A hoddie with a UPF of 50, for example, allows just 1/50 of the sun’s UV radiation to reach the skin. All ohSunny's clothing, accessories and products can block 99% of UVA and UVB rays.
"UVA" can make the skin darken immediately when exposed to the sun. At the same time, through the clouds and window glass, it penetrates the skin and reaches the dermis, which makes the skin loose and wrinkles, which leads to skin photoaging. "UVB" is an ultraviolet B wave. After being exposed to strong sunlight for several hours, it can cause skin redness and inflammation, increase melanin, cause spots and freckles caused by sunburn, and multiple sunburns can also cause aging. It plays a key role in the development of skin cancer.
