Protect The Skin You're In

Sun Science 

We love being outdoors. Running, hiking, swimming, cycling: you name it, and we're game.

But we also know that being under the sun can damage skin, and UV Rays are the biggest offenders. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes that UV Rays can cause skin damage in as little as 15 minutes.

 

Take Cover

There are great recommendations from the CDC on how to arm yourself against damaging UV Rays, including a resource on how to check your UV Index by city

Among their guidelines: wear full coverage clothing when possible. The problem? They note that typical t-shirts (what most folks use to cover up) have an SPF rating of under 15.

Don't worry. Perspective has your back.

 

Apparel Innovation 

It's critical to us at PFW that each piece goes the "extra mile" for our community. This starts with our sun protection factor (SPF) of 50+.  SPF is a measurement of effectiveness in blocking UV rays: the higher the number, the greater the protection.

Women who wear Perspective are regularly in the sun pursing their health and fitness aspirations. When we say we "have your back," we mean that quite literally: our shrugs are designed to protect areas of the body that are most commonly exposed.

This specific type of garment is difficult to find in the athletic apparel world, but couldn't be more important for active women. You can easily pull on the shrug over multiple outfits and looks to give your back, shoulders, and arms a break from the rays. 

 

Big Picture

We know that our SPF 50+ fabric technology isn't the ONLY answer to skin safety: we consider ourselves a part of the bigger solution.  We encourage you to find the best ways to protect the skin you're in, and we're honored to 'have your back!'
