Background/purpose: Clothing is an important protective layer used to reduce UV
exposures to the skin surface. However, not all UV exposure is linked to detrimental
health effects with some exposure to UVB wave lengths below 316 nm required for the
synthesis of pre-vitamin D3. The aim of the current research was to investigate the effect
of fabric type, color, fit and wetness on the transmission of pre-vitamin D3 effective UV
through garments during simulated wear, in a high UV exposure environment.
