Regular umbrellas DO NOT block dangerous UV rays. Developed by a melanoma survivor to help prevent others from a similar diagnosis, UV-Blocker umbrellas block 99% of the sun’s most dangerous rays—rays that can cause the deadly skin cancer, melanoma.
The UV-Blocker line of UV protection umbrellas was approved by the Melanoma International Foundation (MIF) after their board evaluated our products based on company supplied independent testing, product quality, the product's reinforcement of sun-safe behaviors.
