Meet Our Rashguard Tops

| 0 min read

Protecting our children's skin from the sun’s harmful rays is important!

The sun is shining and before you know it, your kids will want to laugh and play outside all day. While we want to welcome the chance to let them run around outside in the fresh air, it’s important to find ways to help protect their skin from the sun’s harmful rays.

While sunscreen is one great option – we always recommend checking out the EWG’s best baby and kids sunscreens (they rate sunscreens based on the ingredients used, with reference to scientific literature, and recommend the least toxic options for your kids) – sometimes, you can’t reapply sunscreen fast enough to battle the sun.

This is why we always recommend Rashguard Tops as an amazing way to help protect your kids skin, while reducing the need to reapply sunscreen all day. Our Rashguard Tops are all UPF 50+ (the highest rating), meaning that they help protect your kids’ skin from sunburn and sun damage.

To clarify, no special treatments or chemicals have been added to the fabric for sun protection - the protection exists naturally in the tight weave and thickness of the fabric.

Meet our extensive lineup of Kids Rashguard Tops –

1. Recycled Nylon UPF 50+ Long Sleeve Rashguard For Girls & Boys - We always first recommend our OEKO-TEX certified Recycled Nylon Rashguard Tops.  A more eco-friendly option, these are made to last with a special recycled nylon/Creora Elastane blend. With pool use, these Rashguards will last much longer than a standard option because of the chlorine-resistant elastane (spandex).

2. UPF 50+ Long Sleeve Rashguard For Girls & Boys - For a classic style and accessible price, reach for the UPF 50+ Long Sleeve Rashguards. Also OEKO-TEX certified, these are a high quality style that are comfortable and can be safely washed and dried for many wears.

3. UPF 50+ Short Sleeve Rashguard For Girls & Boys - For those super hot days, the UPF 50+ Short Sleeve Rashguard offers good coverage with a little extra air flow on the arms. Also OEKO-TEX certified, they come in all the colors of the rainbow.

4. Girls UPF 50+ Peplum Long Sleeve Rashguard - For the kids who welcome a little extra style in their wardrobe, the UPF 50+ Peplum Long Sleeve Rashguard adds the perfect amount of flair. OEKO-TEX certified and fun to mix and match with our colorful bottoms.

5. Solid Long Sleeve Hooded Rashguard - For long days, especially while on the water, the OEKO-TEX certified Long Sleeve Hooded Rashguard is an amazing choice. The hood helps protect their head, neck and ears from the harmful rays, so they can enjoy extra time in the sun.

6. Girls Puff Sleeve Rashguard - For an extra fun option, our Girls Puff Sleeve Rashguard is a winner. This short sleeve rashguard is OEKO-TEX certified, and offers a stylish way to help protect your little ones from the sun.

Sun protection is a never ending adventure – having good Rashguard Tops in your kids’ wardrobes will help reduce the stress of keeping up with the sunscreen, while allowing your kids to safely enjoy more moments outdoors this summer.
