Fabric has UPF. Lotion has SPF.
Clothing brands that claim to have SPF protection in their boating clothes for woman are not correct. SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. It measures how long it takes for sun-exposed skin to turn red from UVB ("hot") radiation. UPF, which is a broad-spectrum UVA/UVB measure for fabric, rates how much UV radiation penetrates fabric and reaches skin. A garment with UPF 50 allows only 1/50th the UV radiation that falls on its surface to pass through it. It blocks 49/50ths, or 98%, of the UV radiation. SPF is not a full spectrum protection.
Is sun protective fabric better?
Our fabrics have UPF 50+ thanks to technical innovation and independent third-party testing. Fabrics are a mix of weave (tighter is more), color, weight, and the additions of sunscreens, millions, of the sun-bouncing mineral, titanium dioxide, and zinc oxide at the fiber or fabric levels. Our sun protection is durable, even after multiple washes and exposures to chlorine, salt and sweat.
