Coola Cozzies products are made of the highest quality chlorine-resistant fabrics. Our rashies and swim shirts are made from 82% polyester and 18% spandex, whilst our board shorts are made from 100% polyester.
To keep them looking gorgeous and in good condition, hand wash them as soon as possible after use using cool water and a mild detergent. Then air-dry them in the shade.
Coola Cozzies may be machine washed at 30 degrees centigrade with a mild detergent and on the gentlest cycle.
Coola Cozzies rashies, swim shirts and board shorts should never be ironed, tumble-dried or dry-cleaned.
The longer we’re exposed to UV radiation and the more intense the UV radiation, the greater their risk of developing skin cancers like melanoma.
Did you know – Australia has one of the highest rates of melanoma in the world? And two out of three Australians will get skin cancer by the age of 70?
BUT the great news is that most skin cancers are preventable!
And the best means of protecting your skin from damage caused by harmful UV light is to wear long sleeved, UPF50+ protective swimwear or clothing.
Clothing and swimwear with a UPF50+ rating actually offers more effective protection against the sun’s UV rays than sunscreen!
This is because sunscreen does not provide total protection against all UV rays. Regardless of the SPF, no sunscreen protects you completely. Even with proper sunscreen use, some UV rays get through.
This is why using physical forms of sun protection is so important, and why Coola Cozzies exists!
For the best sun protection around, choose Coola Cozzies!
