Breathable Clothing That Protects You From the Sun

Hello Everyone!

My name is Alysia Lynch-Sherard, Originally from Toronto Canada I now live in sunny California with my husband Colby and our daughter Zoie!

As a professional equestrian I spend every day exposed to the sun while I train horses and teach riders. I would do my best to keep my self protected from the sun but ever since moving to California I had troubles with my lips burning. Big hats and lip balm SPF was my best defense but I would still find my lips burning often. In 2017 I had a sobering conversation with my dermatologist. He closely looked at my lips he gave me a firm warning. He told me If I continue to let my lips burn he will be "Cutting them off in ten years". He assured me that skin cancer was in my future" As a new mother that was more then enough to get my attention!

The advise from my dermatologist was that i would need to cover my lips with a UPF fabric of 50+.  I began the search for a product which would give me the sun protection i needed while at the same time providing me comfort and functionality. Finding a breathable and effective product for my face was proving difficult.  Even more complicated was finding a face protection which could easily be put on and off without taking off my helmet at the show ring. There was nothing! So I choose to make my own.

Months of trial and error with the design was one thing, but the the fabric I would use was a whole other.

This time taught me so much that I did not know. For example I had zero idea that traditional sun fabrics are treated with a chemical that can wash out in a little as five washes! Clearly that would not work since I wash my scarfs after daily use.  I had faith that I could find a fabric that could give long lasting protection, and I did! The amazing UPF fabric not only offers long lasting sun protection but is also chemical free! 

Years later we have a full sun protection line!! Scarves, Gloves and Shirts!! 

ShadyLady products are lightweight, breathable and best of all made with top of the line sun fabrics that have natural UPF 50+. This will never wash-out or wear-off like traditional UPF fabrics. 

Thank you for showing interest in ShadyLady Sun Protection products.

Enjoy the sun!
