All of Wallaroo’s sun protective men’s hats offer UPF50+ protection, these fabrics block 97.5% of the sun’s ultraviolet rays and MANY are recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation so you can look and feel great in the sun. Look out for the Skin Cancer Foundation Icon on those listed.
To earn the Seal of Recommendation, a manufacturer must provide scientific data showing that its product sufficiently and safely, “aids in the prevention of sun-induced damage to the skin.” The data is reviewed by a volunteer committee of photo-biologists — experts in the study of the interaction between UV radiation and the skin.
The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends the material of every Wallaroo hat with a UPF rating and a 3+ inch brim as an effective UV protectant.
The criteria to earn The Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Recommendation includes:
An ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) of 30 or higher
Acceptable test results according to the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists method or AS/NZS Standard
For hats, in addition to the fabric requirements specified above, a minimum brim width of 3 inches
