May marks the beginning of warmer weather and outdoor activities, but it also signifies something crucial: Skin Cancer Awareness Month. As families prepare for beach days, pool parties, and other outdoor adventures, it's essential to prioritize sun protection, especially for our little ones! While sunscreen is a must, did you know that clothing also plays a significant role in shielding against harmful UV rays? That's where UPF 50+ swimwear, like those featured across RuffleButts’ assortment, is so important for your children's safety. 


Understanding the Importance of Sun Protection


Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States, with over 5 million cases diagnosed each year (American Cancer Society). The sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays are a leading cause of skin damage, including sunburn, premature aging, and skin cancer. Children are particularly vulnerable to sun damage, as their skin is more delicate and susceptible to harm (American Academy of Pediatrics).

Parents must take proactive measures to protect their children from the sun's harmful effects, especially during outdoor activities. While sunscreen is vital, it requires frequent reapplication and may not offer complete coverage, particularly when children are playing in water. This is where UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) clothing comes into play.


Introducing UPF 50+ Swimwear


UPF 50+ swimwear is specially designed to provide maximum sun protection. With a UPF rating of 50+, these garments block over 98% of the sun's UV rays, effectively shielding the skin underneath. Unlike regular clothing, UPF swimwear is made from tightly woven fabrics that create a barrier against UV radiation.

RuffleButts understands the importance of protecting children's delicate skin while they have fun in the sun. Their UPF 50+ swimwear collection combines style and functionality, offering adorable designs and Accessories that prioritize safety without compromising on comfort.
