Stay sun-safe and stylish whilst enjoying long summer days with Solbari; a sun-protective clothing, hat and accessories brand that specialises in UPF50+ protection. Solbari’s mission is to empower people worldwide to live a sun smart life through education and awareness of the importance of skin health. Aiming to break generational habits of not protecting one’s skin from the damaging effects of the sun.

All Solbari fabrics are independently tested and rated by an Australian Government agency as UPF50+, which is the highest sun protective rating in the world for fabrics. This certification affirms that every Solbari fabric protects the skin from at least 98% of UVA and UVB rays. In comparison, research shows that ordinary, non-sun-protective clothing may be equivalent to wearing only an SPF5+ sunscreen.


Solbari CEO and founder Johanna Young said the brand considers every element of coverage to ensure generous and comfortable sun protection. “While most Australians do think to put on sunscreen when they’re out in the sun, the majority only apply it where the skin is directly exposed and not in the amounts or with the regularity they really need,” Johanna said.

Melanoma is often referred to as “Australia’s National Cancer” as 17,000 new cases are diagnosed every year, and of that, 1,400 cases will be fatal. Additionally, 2 in 3 Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the time they are 70. As around 90% of skin cancers are caused by UV exposure from the sun, not only is the main cause of skin cancer undeniable, but this also means that most skin cancers are preventable. Protecting your skin from the sun is a necessity, and Solbari is a thoughtful, comfortable, and fashionable way to protect ourselves and our loved ones.

Routinely recommended by dermatologists around the world. Solbari has received the Seal of Recommendation from The Skin Cancer Foundation (New York, USA) for their Active, Sensitive and CoolaSun collections. They have also been a two-time winner of the Healthy Skin Award from the Skin Health Institute (Melbourne, Australia) and are proud to deliver Australian UPF50+ protection to customers in over 95 countries.

Solbari’s best-selling range, the Sensitive collection, is made from a UPF50+ fabric that is a natural blend of cotton and bamboo. This combination is soft and lightweight to regulate body temperature and is also free of any harmful chemicals or artificial fertilisers. Solbari’s other collections include Active, Swim and CoolaSun.
