Our fabric is a micro-perforated mesh made of a special polyester and lycra fiber. The combination of both increases the passage of sun rays in relation to conventional swimwear, minimizing the usual tan lines. It is, therefore, a selective filter of UV rays which allows a more uniform tan, in a healthy way, presenting a constant Solar Protection Factor (SPF) 10.

Yes, our fabric has been scientifically developed and has undergone laboratory tests which prove their effectiveness.

Our fabric allows sun rays to pass through about 5x more than conventional swimwear: it has a constant Solar Protection Factor (SPF) 10 while common lycra has a SPF 50. Therefore, it clearly minimizes tan lines and can even cancel them. The results achieved depend, however, on the type of skin and its own way of reacting to sun exposure as well as the compliance of the instructions on the CONCEPT page.

To achieve the best results, we recommend following the instructions on the CONCEPT page. We noticed it is extremely important not to get sunburns and to often put sunscreen on the skin that is directly exposed to the sun. The more you equalize the level of sun protection on your entire skin, the better the results.

If you want to increase the level of sun protection on the skin under the fabric, yes. However, we remind you that, to minimize tan lines, the level of sun protection on your entire skin should be the same. We recommended you to reinforce the sun protection of the skin that is directly exposed to the sun.

Elastics and seams are elements that avoid the passage of sun rays and, because of that, we recommend to currently change the position of the stripes during sunbathing. On the other hand, since the chest area is, as a rule, where the incidence of sunlight is greatest, showing more traces of redness after sun exposure, we advise you to rest the skin and only after analyze the results achieved. You will find that the tan lines are not so strong as usual.
