What Makes a Moby UV?
The patented Rayosan™ technology by Clariant increases the Sun Protection Factor of fabric without changing the appearance, handle, and "breathability" of it. You can imagine how excited we are to incorporate this technology into the Moby™ Wrap fabric. Using this kind of fabric will offer another layer of protection for baby's sensitive skin, especially before the recommended age of using sunscreen.
Here's How It Works:
Think of the Rayosan™ process as an invisible dye. It acts like a mirror and will deflect the harmful UVA and UVB rays off the fabric. These rays are bounced back and prevented from going through the fabric and harming baby’s delicate skin.
Although it is a chemical process, it was tested and passed the Oeko-Tex 100 certification process, which ensures us that it was tested for harmful substances - and passed. We share Oeko-Tex commitment to your personal safety and the support of environmentally sound processes and you can rest assured that the product you have will not harm you or your child.
The dye is considered to be durable for the life or the garment. It is long lasting, but will start to gradually wash out after 30 washes or so.
The Rayosan™ coated fabric’s UPF value ranges from 44-48.
The design of the Moby™ Wrap uses your entire back, as well as your shoulders, to carry the weight of your baby. Unlike other carriers, which have narrow straps or go across one shoulder, the Moby™ Wrap is a wide piece of fabric that is wrapped over both shoulders. It is amazingly comfortable and easy to wear. There are no buckles, snaps or other fasteners. It is easy to adjust the fit of your Moby™ Wrap by varying how tightly you wrap yourself and your baby.
The Moby™ Wrap comes with an easy to follow instructional guide and this web site with the latest news, tips and techniques. With the single stretch cotton and the width of the Moby™ Wrap, your baby is wrapped close and tight, ensuring a secure hold. Your baby’s head can also be secured under the stretchy cotton fabric for added safety. You can finally have both hands free and know your baby is safe and secure.
Be Uniquely Close To Your Baby
There is not a lot of extra material or bulky padding between you and your baby. Your baby can hear your heartbeat and finds comfort in the warmth of your body,and sound of your heartbeat within the cuddly confines of the Moby™ Wrap.
