      Why we are raising awareness:

      Skin cancer is often labelled as Australia's national cancer but it is also described as the most preventable. 

      Many don't realise that not all fabrics protect the same from the sun. Did you know that a regular white cotton t-shirt may have the equivalent protection of wearing SPF5 sunscreen? All Solbari products have the highest sun protective rating available in the world for fabrics and are tested in Australia with a UPF50+ certification, which is the equivalent to wearing SPF50+ sunscreen all day long. 

      According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, sun protective clothing, sun hats, UPF50+ accessories, sunglassesand sunscreen are the best ways to help prevent skin cancer. 

      * By sending your story and picture to Solbari, you give Solbari consent to publish your story and picture to Solbari's website and Solbari's Facebook page.

      ** Terms and conditions apply. Submit your story by Thursday 28th March 2019 at 11.59pm. 10 stories will be randomly selected and entrants will be notified and sent their $75 voucher on Saturday 30th March 2019. Vouchers are valued at USD$75 each. Cannot be exchanged for cash. Not valid in conjunction with other promotions or offers. Voucher needs to be redeemed in 1 transaction before 27.04.2019.

      The truth about a suntan
