FIELD TESTED SUN PROTECTION CLOTHING
Vapor Apparel’s entire line of Solar shirts has earned The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation. This is another positive event for a product that is growing the market for sublimation printers. Offered in an array of Sublimation Certified colors, the Vapor Solar Long Sleeve is officially recognized as an effective UV protectant.
The Skin Cancer Foundation grants its Seal of Recommendation to products that meet the Foundation’s stringent and specific criteria for effective UV sun protection. The Seal program covers many categories of sun protection, each with its own specific standards. 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 committee of photobiologists - experts in the study of the interaction between ultraviolet radiation and the skin.
“We are extremely pleased to be making this announcement” says Brandon Barber, Vice President of Manufacturing at Vapor Apparel. “Yet another reason for consumers to use and rely on our products.”
“Clothing is the first line of defense against the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays and an important part of a complete sun protection regimen,” says Deborah S. Sarnoff, MD, President of The Skin Cancer Foundation. “We’re happy to award a great clothing brand the Seal of Recommendation, our flagship consumer education initiative.”
