  author={Gi-Min Park and Yong-Ho Nam and Eunmi Gil and Tae-Heung Kim},
Background: Although sun-caps are widely used to shun hazardous solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation in Korea, little is known about their protective efficacy. Objective: We tried to measure and compare sun-cap protection from UV radiation. Methods: Seventeen commercially available sun-caps (products 1~17) were evaluated against UV-protection by spectrophotometerically measuring absorption and transmission spectra, percent protection of solar UVB and UVA photometerically, and solar UV-spectra… CONTINUE READING
