Many people don’t realize that clothing has a sun defense ranking system. It’s called UPF, and most garments don’t score very high. An average white cotton t-shirt, for example, gets a UPF score of 5.
A brilliant way to better shield the skin under your clothing is a laundry aid called SunGuard. Using an active ingredient called Tinosorb FD, it washes in an invisible shield of sun protection. Clothing’s UPF is consequently boosted to 30.
Not surprisingly, SunGuard is recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation. A box costs less than $2, so there’s no reason not to make your machine-washable clothing more protective.
