At Solbari, we believe that prevention is the best cure. According to medical experts, this is particularly true when it comes to skin cancer and melanoma.
Sun exposure has been identified as the cause of 95% to 99% of skin cancers in Australia.
Remember that heat is not equal to UV. Even on cooler sunny days, the UV can still be strong and sun protection is recommended.
When it comes to detecting a skin cancer, as Associate Professor Rosemary Nixon from the Skin & Cancer Foundation Inc. says, "the earlier a skin cancer is identified and treated, the better the chance of avoiding surgery, or in the case of a serious melanoma or skin cancer, potential disfigurement or even death."
The Skin & Cancer Foundation Inc., recommend you develop a regular habit of checking your skin for new spots and changes to existing moles or freckles.
Solbari’s award-winning range includes UPF 50+ shirts, polos, trousers, arm sleeves and umbrellas.

Your skin is your largest organ and has a long memory. Sun exposure and ultraviolet (UV) damage is cumulative throughout your life. Research shows that sun damage contributes to more than 90% of wrinkles, brown spots, premature skin aging as well as precancerous and cancerous skin lesions.
Limiting sun exposure is very important. As the UV rays cause the most damage to the skin.
It often takes many years and sometimes decades for the effects to become visible.
But the good news is that taking care of your skin from now onwards may be able to help you to reduce the probability of skin cancers and minimise skin aging.
