In the sun, hats and caps plus sunscreen protect you. The UV protection information “Well protected in the sun” from the hat association GDH eV explains the risks and gives tips on what to consider when choosing cool caps, sun hats and panamas. Because: a headgear plus sunscreen offers the best protection for the sensitive areas of the head, forehead, nose, ears, neck and lips.
Not every material offers enough UV protection. For example, a light cotton hat without UV protection only has a sun protection factor of 2-20 UPF, while a hat with special UV protection has protection of up to 80 UPF. Stay healthy!
