Applying sunscreen and covering up with a tee-shirt may seem like complete sun protection. But did you know you’re not really shielding yourself from the sun’s damaging UV rays? Some fair-skinned people have even had the experience of being sunburned through clothing — especially lightweight and light-colored garments. In fact, the average white cotton tee-shirt offers just UPF 5 protection — a level that dermatologists would find inadequate.
SunGuard protects your family by washing an invisible shield into clothing that helps block more than 96% of the sun’s harmful rays from reaching your skin. With the active ingredient TINOSORB® FD, a UV protectant, SunGuard can boost the UPF protection of a white cotton T-shirt from UPF 5 to UPF 30.
Simply add one package of SunGuard to a warm- or hot-water laundry load, along with detergent, and you wash in skin protection for up to 20 future washings. SunGuard permeates fabric without changing the color or comfort of clothing, and is safe for even the most sensitive skin.
SunGuard is endorsed by leading dermatologists. It is recommended for everyone — especially fairer-skinned people, people with medical conditions or family histories that make them particularly sun-sensitive, and anyone who spends substantial time in the sun. SunGuard has received the Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation and the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval.
