How will a Cush’n Shade help to prevent skin damage?

“Prevention is better then cure” is an old wise saying. It is a fact that the sun is the number one cause of skin damage and wrinkles. The face is also the most important part of the body to protect, as it is constantly exposed to the sun. We encourage everyone to continue to use sun screens with high SPF’s all of the time, but when lying out in the sun ,using a Cush’n Shade® will give the highest protection and therefore help to reduce damage caused by the sun.

Does the UV protection ware off over time?

Definitely not! The shade is designed to give 50+ UV protection from the sun. We actually achieve this
with a single layer of fabric and the shade has a double layer! 50+ UPF is the highest rating that ARPANSA
(Australian Radiation and Nuclear Safety Agency) award.
