sun protection

When you are out on a sunny day consuming vitamin D, you are also at risk of catching skin cancer. Sun is healthy for us, but it is also important to know there are negative aspects as well. You must have seen on a lot of cosmetic products of the term “SPF” which stands for “Sun Protection Factor.” For example, if it states “SPF30” it means that 1/30th of a chance of burning reaches the skin through the thickness of sunscreen. The higher the number is the sun blockage of the sun is stronger. We are trying to protect ourselves from the UV light which stands for “ultraviolet.” UV light is present in sunlight which contains harmful radiation which is invisible to the human eye. As much as sunscreen is a miraculous invention to apply on skin, there are also fabrics that can block UV lights and contains SPF.

This changes the game for people who do outdoor activities. If a sportswear contains SPF than there is less need to apply sunscreen on which wears out in 30-50 minutes maximum. If you are able to wear something that covers up and protects you from UV lighting than you are capable of concentrating more on performance than worrying about the skin condition. This increases performance level which shows a great deal of potential for growth in the sports industry. There is always a high demand for upgrading apparel and gear in the sports industry and Sportek is ahead of the game in providing the fabric that contains high SPF fabrics for various purposes.
