Sun Gear brings the Australian approach to sun protection to the USA!
Solartex Sun Gear, a leader in sun protection products
since 1998, offers various UV sun protective products including sunscreen,
sun protective clothing, rash
guard shirts, sun protection swimwear & sun
hats, for babies,
from Australian manufacturers such as C-wear,
and Sun Emporium.
All Solartex UV apparel carries an SPF Skin Protection of UPF 50+ (UPF
is the SPF equivalent for UV clothing and UPF 50+ is the highest rating
available) and virtually all items are chlorine resistant as well,
so that they last much longer than ordinary sun protective wear.
We also carry sun hats from Sunday
Afternoon and San
In addition, Solartex
carries two types of sunscreen,
one made by Mexitan that is chemical free and one made
by Solrx that is waterproof. Either of these sunblocks
would be a great choice for those parts of the body that are not covered
Solartex also has My Pool Pal and Aqua Force kids
flotation device swimsuits, swim
diapers, & sunglasses
as well as many other accessories.
Our Cwear products have the endorsement of the Skin & Cancer Foundation
Solartex carries only the best UV Sun Protective Swimwear, Rash
Protection Hats and UV Sun Protective Clothing on the market. With a SPF
/ UPF 50+ rating, Solartex's UV apparel and UV swimwear block 98% of all UVA
& UVB rays. Our products are resistant against chlorine, have excellent stretch
and recovery, and are quick drying. We have UV Sun Protective Clothing for swimming,
running, boating, gardening, and/or any activity under the sun.
Fun in the Sun!
You may enjoy having fun in the sun but without adequate protection,
the UV radiation is damaging to your skin! Over exposure to ultraviolet radiation
can cause short term health effects such as sunburn, wrinkles and sun spots.
Long term exposure to ultraviolet radiation can increase the risk of damage
to the skin which may cause skin cancer and eventually Melanoma, as well as
damage to the eyes which may result in cataracts. You can relax and have fun
in the sun when you use our sun protection products.
Why is Solartex the best company worldwide in UV Protection sportswear
UV Sun Protective Clothing and UV Swimwear (SPF Clothing or Sunscreen
Clothing) started over a decade ago and originated from Australia, where the
risks of too much sun exposure have long been evident. Solartex was founded
in 1998 to import and sell sun protective UV
Clothing, UV Swimwear
and Rashguard shirts
in the United States. Solartex is one of the original sun protective
UV Clothing and UV Swimwear internet companies! The Cwear brand was
our first brand and has been our favorite, with a very loyal following among
our customers. We have added products by Sun Emporium and Stingray, both of
which are also Australian companies with fabulous products.

Sunscreen alone may not provide adequate protection!
Sunscreens may need to be completely reformulated after researchers discovered
the Ultraviolet Rays that cause sunburn are not responsible for skin cancer.
A Sydney University team found that UVA Rays (which do no visibly burn the skin)
penetrate more deeply and do more harm than UVB Rays, which are responsible
for sunburn and have until now been considered the main cause of skin cancer.
Dermatology Professor Gary Halliday said the finding by his team could lead
to a complete overhaul of sunscreens, which currently provide more protection
against UVB rays than UVA rays. Sunscreen also requires that you apply it every
time you go outside and it may easily rub or wash off requiring regular reapplications.
It's easy to forget and easy to miss a spot, too!
Regular clothing may not be suitable for sun protection!
Some regular clothing may rate as low as 5 (UPF 5), which does not reduce UVR
exposure, and does not provide any skin protection from the sun's UV radiation.
To be sure about your regular clothing’s rating, special UVR exposure testing
must be performed on fabrics by certified laboratories. Our sun protection
products are tested to insure that they provide the highest rating in blocking
UV Rays, which is UPF 50+ (blocking 98% of the sun's UV radiation).
We hope you will try
& we guarantee you will like them!
