Psoriasis clothing: is it worth the money?

Solbari blog: Psoriasis clothing: is it worth the money?

The answer is it depends on each individuals circumstances. Only that person can know if the reduction in discomfort experienced from wearing psoriasis clothing provides them with good value for money or not.

Psoriasis clothing utilises fabrics which are natural, super soft, lightweight, breathable and sun protective.

Fabrics which are well suited to this purpose include cotton, bamboo and silk. Synthetic fabrics may incorporate chemical additives which aggravate the skin. Psoriasis clothing is lightweight so as to be more gentle on the skin. Bamboo is excellent for sun protection because of the closeness of the fabric weave.

Individuals who are managing psoriasis day to day all have different levels of severity but also have different triggers which make the condition more uncomfortable. For those suffering with a highly irritable form of the disease like plaque psoriasis, pustular psoriasis or erythrodermic psoriasis, they would almost certainly say that they couldn’t put a value on alleviating the inflammation and itchiness that they encounter ongoing.

In comparison to other types of treatment, psoriasis clothing may also be good value for money.

Prescribed drugs for psoriasis can cost up to thousands of dollars a month if not covered by national medical services or private health insurance cover. Phototherapy and or the use of off the shelf topical creams can be helpful but the cost of these options are not inexpensive either and can add up as they are per service or in the case of topical creams will need to be replaced regularly. Depending on the level of usage and the activities undertaken in the psoriasis clothing garment should still be good to use for many washes before any major deterioration.

Solbari has partnered with Psoriasis Australia to develop a range of clothing specifically for those with psoriasis. Solbari sensitive skin fabric is a natural blend of organic cotton and bamboo which is super soft, lightweight, breathable and offers excellent sun protection. As the leading sun protection clothing brand in Australia, all Solbari fabrics are independently tested and rated UPF 50+ by the Australian Government.

I'm big advocate for sun safety, so I'm very proactive with looking after my skin. I'm always pushing my friends and family to be more sun safe, I think most know the effects of the sun, but not to the extent they should. Most don't seem to understand the UV index, and how quickly you can get burnt in the middle of the day. There's still a long way to go for sun safety education!

As a teenager growing up in England my favourite summer pastime was sunbathing with friends. I have been extremely lucky to have not developed skin cancers (to date) and I am willing to start to take better care.
