Yes, where you see sun protection on a Splash About product it means the product is UPF 50+ protective. This is the highest rating a fabric can be given and we never sell a product that doesn’t give this maximum level. Do all your products protect..
We would always recommend you used a high factor sun cream as well. Re apply to the exposed areas often, especially after being in water and always wear a hat! You will find plenty to choose from right here on our site. Do I also need to use..
Children’s skin is delicate and hasn’t had time to build up any resistance to the sun at all. We have worked with leading agencies in Australia to ensure our products are manufactured to a standard even they would recommend. It only takes 15 minutes in UK full sun to burn children’s skin and even on overcast days dangerous UV rays can still cause damage. Protect your child into adulthood and get UV covered up. We make fantastic summer clothes, so they can look great and keep safe in the sun. Why are children more vulnerable
Always look for the maximum fabric rating of UPF 50+, any clothing quoted as SPF isn’t safe, as SPF does not relate to fabric.  Fabric is rated under a UPF rating. Watch out because this is an easy mistake to make. What should I look..
No! That is the easy answer. Young eyes need extra protection from the sun and it’s never too early to start protecting them from the harsh summer sun, particularly aboard. Our specialist sunglasses are 100% effective against the sun’s rays and come with a comfortable strap to hold them in place. Trust me, once baby has them on and gets used to them, they will not bother taking them off. Older kids enjoy looking cool. Sunglasses..
