Review Guidelines

Fantastic: cost-effective, long-lasting and works great!
I have loved Sun Guard since I started using it after my skin cancer surgery 15 years ago! It doesn't leave any odor or change the feel or appearance of clothing so I can't tell it is there. I used to list the clothes I had washed with it but now take and print photos of treated loads and keep them in my closet so I know which clothes screen UV rays . I know Sun Guard really works. I have put treated clothes in the full sun over beads that change color when exposed to UV rays and the beads don't change. And although I burn easily I can count on my Sun Guard-treated clothes to protect me from burning. The Skin Cancer Foundation has tested it and given it their seal of approval. One box of powder provides protection for an entire load of laundry for up to 20 washings. Costing just a few dollars a load and lasting for many washings, Sun Guard is a bargain, especially given the very high price of most UV-protective clothing. Sun Guard will not change the UV resistance of polyester or nylon because these fabrics are naturally UV resistant. Sun Guard is a fantastic product!

Sun Protection after Lung Transplant
I'm taking immunosuppressive drugs after my double lung transplant and need to protect myself from more sun exposure. I am at a high risk for skin cancer due to those life saving drugs and years of skin damaging sun worship since birth; grew up on Lake Michigan and spent the summers in the water all day long. I was so thrilled to have this product recommended by my care provider to use on the clothes I already have and love at a significant cost saving over the "special" UVA/UVB clothes, that are expensive. While I still wear sunscreen all the time, I am more confident I am doing all I can for prevention. Thank you RIT and Thank you! You too may help save someones life!

another aid against skin cancer
I love this product. I have used it for a few years now. I've had several skin cancers and do all I can to protect myself. My dermatologist thinks its wonderful that I've added this step in protection. 1 box protects for 20 washings. I can give the whole family protection doing the laundry. Thanks Rit for this life saving product. I Recommend This ProductAbout Me: OtherSkill Level: Intermediate

Wonderful product
I found Sun Guard several years ago. Since then I've learned I have lupus and should avoid the sun, so I'm even more glad to know about it and use it. Thank you. I'm grateful for it. I Recommend This ProductAbout Me: OtherSkill Level: Intermediate

Unique product
I use Sun Guard with all natural fabrics I purchase to make sun hats I sell at craft shows. It works in the washer so is easy to use. I consider it a must have in the "Valley of the Sun". This product is getting difficult to find since Rit seems to have eliminated it from their newer displays in retail stores. Create for Less had the product available at a good price and shipped promptly. I will save myself some time and trouble and order my Sun Guard from them from now on.
