About Coolibar

The Coolibar Mission: To develop superior sun protective products that allow people to enjoy life in the sun.  
  Coolibar brings Australian advances in sun protection to America.  Our name is taken from the famous eucalyptus tree found in the harsh Australian outback. Like it, we promise welcome relief and reliable protection from the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays. Sun protective clothing has been popular for over a decade in Australia, where it gets very hot and many of its citizens are fair-skinned. In fact, Aussies now prefer UV sun-wear to sunscreen alone! Using expertise developed down-under, and elsewhere around the globe, Coolibar’s high quality fabrics are guaranteed to be the most dependable on the market.

“All the clothes have been very pretty and very practical – how could you ask for more?” – Amy from Michigan
  Why wear sun protective clothing?Regular summer clothing provides very little sun protection.
Wrinkles and age spots are the least of it. The sun has been proven to aggravate medical conditions, interfere with prescriptive drugs, and to cause skin cancer. Your summer weight t-shirts and sun-dresses can let in an astonishing amount of the sun’s damaging UV rays. Coolibar sun hats, protective clothing and swimwear use superbly protective, high-tech fabrics to deliver no less than 50 UPF, 98% blockage, yet keep you cool, comfortable and fashionable.

Sunscreen helps but it only goes so far.
You must apply sunscreen every time you go outside. Often you need help. It rubs off and must be reapplied regularly to maintain effectiveness. We offer a safer, easier way to have maximum and dependable protection.
