Wearing sun protective clothing will limit sun exposure, the leading cause of skin cancer. Over one in five Americans will get skin cancer in their lifetime. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the US. (Source: The Skin Cancer Foundation)
A 2007 review in the medical journal, The Lancet reported that UV protective clothing and reducing sun exposure are more effective than using sunscreen. The advantage of Iconic Sport's sun protection apparel and sunsleeves is that Iconic's sun protection is mechanical, not chemical and so it does not wash out, rub off or sweat off-- they are an intrinsic, non-chemical part of our fabrics.
With UV protective clothing and sun sleeves, your sun protection level does not vary. Plus you avoid the 'sticky' factor of sunscreens and the scary pollutant factor which is being reported about a number of common sunscreen ingredients which are showing up systematically in our population and in our oceans, lakes and waterways.
