Protect Your Skin 

We all love to spend more time outdoors enjoying day at the beach, braais with friends, experiencing a safari, taking long hikes or playing a round of golf. Even if you are super careful and slather on your sunscreen every two hours, the sun's harmful UVA and UVB rays can unfortunately burn your skin, which puts you at higher risk of early skin aging to developing skin cancers.

Worldwide, skin cancer is one of the most commonly occurring cancer (*1). The impact of the sun is increasingly harmful, particularly for South Africans who are exposed to high levels of UVR most of the year (*2). This is why investing in premium sun protective headwear is so important.
