Description
Part of our OceanPositive Collection, these new Hydroskin rashguards are designed to be worn under a wetsuit or semi-dry suit or as a UV shield for all water sport activities. The fit of these rashguards has been improved with flattering panels, kept streamlined with flatlocked seams. Presented in a palette of classic and ocean inspired colours with water-based prints on chest and back in complementary, contrast tones. The ultra smooth fabric made with a combination of recycled polyester and stretchy elastane reduces friction between the skin and a wetsuit and helps to stop chafing from tight/ill-fitting suits.

Hydroskin & Rushguards

Fourth Element

"Protect the ocean, save your skin. These rashguards are the perfect garment to put on instead of applying extra sunscreen which is likely to wash off, which recent studies show has been contributing to the pollution of coral. Many of our rashguards are made from recycled materials, reducing the amount of waste going to landfill or entering our oceans."

Recycled post consumer plastic waste

We consume nearly 1 million plastic bottles a minute globally. This waste is not always necessary and not all of it is handled responsibly. Recycling is one solution to the problem, creating new products from old, but it is just a part of tackling the problem. Rejecting single-use plastic packaging and recycling whenever and wherever possible is a step in the right direction. With small changes in our behaviour, we can make a big difference.

Made with recycled post consumer plastic waste, each Hydroskin prevents approximately 7 plastic bottles from ending up in landfill or worse still, the ocean. The prints are produced with water-based inks, limiting the amount of chemicals used in production. Packaged in compostable bags made from cassava starch.

Resources

Up to 14,000 tons of sunscreen washes off into our coral reefs every year and accelerates the process of coral reefs bleaching, as well as being toxic to certain reef fish species. Oxybenzone and octinoxate are the chemicals that have been flagged as being most destructive to the reef. By wearing a rashguard with built-in sun protection, you reduce the amount of sunscreen that you need to apply to your body
