The Science of Sun Protection: Understanding UPF in Swimsuits

At Jantzen, we take sun protection seriously, and that's why we've collaborated with our partner BloqUV, to bring you a stunning UV protective clothing line. In this blog post, we'll dive into the science behind sun protection in swimsuits, the difference between UPF and SPF, and the invaluable benefits of choosing swimwear and apparel with a high UPF rating.



The Science Behind Sun Protection in Clothing:

Sun protection in clothing is not just about adding an extra layer; it's a science. UV protective fabric is designed to shield your skin from the sun's harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Jantzen's collaboration with BloqUV combines fashion with cutting-edge technology to offer you swimwear and apparel that not only looks fantastic but also acts as a shield against the sun.

Understanding UPF vs. SPF:

While many are familiar with SPF (Sun Protection Factor) in sunscreen, UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) is the equivalent measure for clothing. The difference is that UPF indicates how effectively the fabric blocks both UVA and UVB rays, while SPF measures the protection provided by sunscreen against UVB rays only. Jantzen's UV protective swimwear and clothing line offers UPF50+ rating, ensuring your skin remains safe from the sun's harmful effects.

The Benefits of UPF Protective Swimwear + Clothing:

Choosing swimwear and clothing with a UPF rating means you can enjoy the beach with confidence. Our UV protective line offers a range of key features:
