“I wish I’d known about harmful UV Rays and the obvious steps I should have taken to protect myself but like a lot of us, we weren’t fully aware and now suffer the consequences. After surviving two significant skin cancer surgeries but still wanting to continue my love of the outdoors, I was looking for solutions. Applying SPF 50+ sunscreen is a no-brainer – but what about hats?”
To Deborah’s horror, she realised that her favourite golf cap and battered straw beach hat did little more than provide a bit of shade. While she thought she was protected, UV Rays still penetrated the material. She then discovered the solution: A UPF 50+ material that provided maximum sun protection, blocking the harsh rays of the sun. Canopy Bay is a culmination of Deb’s passion for sun safety and her desire to design a hat for every body and every occasion.
