Anti-UV clothing to prevent skin cancer

MidiLibre/Scoop, May 18

The sun is responsible for the majority of skin cancers, and each year there are 10,000 new cases. To prevent the disease from an early age, a company from Verargues, Hérault is making anti-UV beach clothes.

A company spokesperson said “Ultra-tight weaving of fibers will block UVA and UVB, the clothes we sell are UPF 50+ certified, it’s the highest certification.”

The method has been used for a long time in Australia, but finally they have started to arrive in France.
