There are two typical modern solutions for daily UV protection: sunscreen or wearables with these chemical finishes. UVtec presents an innovative concept in UV protection that has been tailored to mitigate the shortfalls of existing products by effectively protecting you against all UV radiation, while avoiding any chemical finish.
The everyday shopper may not be fully aware of the environmental impact of overusing Sunscreen. Sunscreen has shown to raise the pH levels of the ocean, resulting in coral bleaching and lowering the fertility in fish, slowly destroying our marine life ecosystems.
Sunscreen has shown to be an effective form of sun-protection but overusing this product has shown to have possible personal health effects. In fact, Dr. Erum Ilyas has found that after just one day of use our skin absorbs up to four times the safe amount of sunscreen into our bodies.
Our patent-pending concept defies today’s products' ineffectiveness through four key attributes: zero chemical-finishes, sun-protection durability that lasts past five times the industry standard of washes, protection from over 98% of all UV radiation and a consistent UPF rating of fifty or higher
Our Testing Process
The UVtec Concept can be integrated into a number of potential manufacturing processes. Textiles produced in partnership with UVTec are required to uphold a standard of environmentally sustainable production. Our proprietary certification process includes testing for UPF level, durability, and composition in order to guarantee that all UVTec Certified Products adhere to our standard.
UVTec Certification has the capacity to reinforce a wide range of products that you encounter on a daily basis. From high performance athletic clothing to the umbrella you take to the beach, the applications of our UVTec Certified Textiles are endless.
