Rates of diagnosed skin cancer are on the increase. Recommendations to reduce the risk of skin cancer include wearing sunscreen, regular skin check ups, avoiding the sun between 11am and 3pm and wearing sun protective clothing – including a sun hat.
UPF50+ Sun Hats Reduce Risk of Skin Cancer
Emthunzini Hats are designed in Australia by people who are on a serious quest to reduce the incidence of skin cancer. All hats are made from ARPANSA (Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency) approved materials. They are tested and endorsed to carry the Sun Protection Factor (SPF) Test Certificate and the highest Ultra-Violet Protection Factor (UPF) rating of UPF50+.
All our UPF50+ sun hats are endorsed by the international Skin Cancer Foundation, the Cancer Council of Australia and the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA). These endorsements underline how effective our sun hats are at reducing the risk of skin cancer.
Skin Cancer Awareness
This awareness campaign by the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) highlights that people should pay more attention to skin marks rather than marks on their cars!
