Eclipse Sun Products offer sun protection without sunscreen

The Skin Cancer Foundation reports that the most common form of cancer is skin cancer which is found on roughly two million people each year. Most readers of health, beauty and fitness magazines are aware of the need to wear a broad spectrum sunscreen on the hands, face and other exposed areas of the body during the day to protect the skin from wrinkles, brown spots and other signs of sun damage as well as to protect the skin from skin cancer.

However, some people don't like to wear sunscreen because some sunscreens contain chemicals, or feel greasy or make people sweat more. To protect those who don't like sunscreens, Eclipse Sun Products has created a line of sun protection clothing. The product line includes UPF 50+ sun sleeves and sun gloves. Developed by a physical therapist, the sun protectors help outdoor enthusiasts, including golfers, drivers, hikers, and bikers, protect their hands and arms from dangerous sun exposure

Eclipse Sun Products are made of Spandex to provide a non-slip fit. They also provide moisture wicking and cooling. I tested a pair of pink, polka-dot sun gloves on a hike recently and found they were comfortable and easy to use with a walking pole, a dog leash and a camera.
