STINGRAY® is the original sun protection clothing company in Australia. The name STINGRAY is synonymous with sun protection awareness and government education about the sun's damaging ultraviolet rays caused by the harsh Australian environment.
The name STINGRAY in Australia and worldwide represents the highest quality of sun protective clothing & sun suits in the world. Due to its geographical position and close proximity to the equator, Australia experiences some of the highest levels of solar ultraviolet radiation in the world. Every year in Australia there are 270,000 new cases of skin cancer diagnosed. Many of these cases could have been prevented by wearing quality sun protection clothing, rashies, hats and shoes. Check out our page on UV Protection for useful facts about skin cancer and has handy tips to help you stay safe in the sun!
Over exposure to ultraviolet radiation can cause short term health effects such as sunburn, wrinkles and sun spots. Long-term exposure to ultraviolet radiation can increase the risk of damage to the skin, which may cause skin cancer and eventually Melanoma, as well as damage to the eyes that may result in cataracts. There are several options available to you in order to avoid harmful UV radiation, you can stay in the shade or wear Stingray sun protection clothing from Australia for the ultimate in ultraviolet protection.
Sunscreens may need to be completely reformulated after researchers discovered the ultraviolet rays that cause sunburn are not responsible for skin cancer. The Sydney University team found UVA rays (which do not visibly burn the skin) penetrate more deeply and do more harm than UVB Rays, which are responsible for sunburn and have until now been considered the main cause of skin cancer. Dermatology Professor Gary Halliday said the finding by his team could lead to a complete overhaul of sunscreens, which currently protect more against UVB than UVA. When you buy sun protection clothing from Stingray, you are guaranteed to get the protection you need from the sun that sunscreen just can't provide. Some regular clothing may rate low, but do not reduce UVR exposure, and do not provide any skin protection from the sun's UV radiation. To be sure about regular clothing rating, special UVR exposure testing needs to be performed on fabrics by certified laboratories. STINGRAY® sun protection clothing and UV protective swimwear provide the highest ratings in blocking UV Rays, which is EXCELLENT PROTECTION (blocking more than 97.5% of the sun's UV radiation).
