The latest range of Hydroskin rashguards from Fourth Element are made in the same smooth, high-performance fabrics you know and love, but with recycled polyester from ocean-bound plastic bottles; decreasing the use of virgin materials.

Part of their OceanPositive Collection, these Hydroskin rashguards are designed to wear under a wetsuit or semi-drysuit, or as a UV shield for all watersport activities.

The fit of these rashguards has been improved with flattering panels, kept streamlined with flatlocked seams and are presented in a palette of classic and ocean-inspired colours with water-based prints on chest and back in complementary, contrast tones. The ultra-smooth fabric made with a combination of recycled polyester and stretchy elastane reduces friction between the skin and a wetsuit and helps to stop chafing of tight/ill-fitting suits.

These rashguards are the perfect garment to put on instead of applying extra sunscreen which is likely to wash off, which recent studies show has been contributing to the pollution of coral.

We consume nearly one million plastic bottles a minute globally. This waste is not always necessary and not all of it is handled responsibly. Recycling is one solution to the problem, creating new products from old, but it is just a part of tackling the problem. Rejecting single-use plastic packaging and recycling whenever and wherever possible is a step in the right direction. With small changes in our behaviour, we can make a big difference.

Made with recycled post-consumer plastic waste, each Hydroskin prevents approximately seven plastic bottles from ending up in landfill or worse still, the ocean. The prints are produced with water-based inks, limiting the amount of chemicals used in production. Packaged in compostable bags made from cassava starch.

You can buy the Hydroskins online now!
