Cancer Council UPF50+ Sun Protective Headwear Collection?

Be safe in the knowledge that you are wearing a Cancer Council hat that provides you with maximum sun radiation protection.

Australia has the highest rate of skin cancer – over 40,000 new cases of skin cancer are reported each year and over 1800 of these are fatal melanomas.  This can be explained by the predominantly fair skinned population, the outdoors Australian lifestyle, the often cloud-free climate and exposure to the resulting high levels of solar (UV) radiation.  Media reports of UV radiation levels raise public awareness about the harmful effects of excessive exposure to solar UV radiation.

We understand the importance of providing our customers with the highest level of UV protection sun hats, as determined by the Government Agency ARPANSA.  As part of our commitment to providing the highest level of UV protection sun hats, our sun hats undergo rigorous testing at ARPANSA for exposure to high levels of sun radiation and have consequently gained the maximum rating of UPF50+ giving you peace of mind that you are buying a high quality product that not only looks good, but will also protect you from the harmful effects of the Australian climate.

Cancer Council has led efforts to reduce the burden of skin cancer in Australia for more than 30 years. Cancer Council has made an important contribution through its active involvement in the sun protection product industry, most publicly by branding and selling a wide range of high-quality items designed to reduce the adverse effects of UV exposure, and by making those products as practical, affordable and accessible as possible.
