Add Sun protection to your clothes!

My husband has had a few patches of skin cancer removed over the last year. The sun is nothing to play with. And we take this very seriously now in our house. I had heard of SunGuard sun protection – a powder that you put in with your wash and it gives your clothing a SPF of 30, blocking 96% of the sun’s harmful rays.

SunGuard does not alter the look, feel or color of the garment and lasts for 20 washings. I bought several boxes and started adding it to each load. I will do this again in a few weeks when we start breaking out the summer clothes.

I highly recommend SunGuard to anyone. Especially to those with children (product is recommended for over 6 months of age), have light skin, for those who have pre-existing or are prone to skin cancer.

And of course, you still need to wear sunscreen, particularly where your clothing does not cover the skin.

  1. If you are interested in UV protective clothing you should check out our product.


  2. If you’re going to be in the water you can’t beat the SPF150 protection of a rash guard shirt.

    thanks, i like both these options for swimwear, but the SunGuard is still best for adding sun protection to every day clothes. Can’t really wear a bathing suit to the office or to a party!

    i am actually wanting a rash guard suit for my 2 year old for this summer when we go to the beach and attend pool parties. so both of these sites are helpful! thanks! 🙂


  4. This looks like a great product! 🙂


  5. We carry a line of dry shirts that look like regular clothing but provide SPF 150+ protection and you can wear them in OR out of the water:
