Do all Bluestone Sunshields have the same protection?


All Bluestone Sunshields block a minimum of 99.0% UVA / UVB / UVC rays. Bluestone Sunshields start with the same processes of mixing our UV filtering material into the lens. The processes allows for 99.0% UV rays to blocked. For our Clear Lux Shield after this step the lens would then go into production. Anything with a tint or color treatment have a few extra steps which also add additional blocking capabilities. Our Black Lux Shields have UV Blocking + Tint which allows for closer to 99.5% and our Colored Shields (Rainbow, Chrome, Mermaid) have Color Treatment + UV Blocking + Tint which allows for closer to 99.9% UV Blocking.




Bluestone Sunshields are ANSI Z80.3 certified, what does that mean?


Bluestone Sunshields are tested according to the American National Standards Institute. This is a voluntary set of technical regulations that we adhere to ensure our products meet the standards in safety and protection. These tests are complete by a 3rd party lab as well as we frequently do in-house testing to demonstrate how our products work.




Do I need to wear sunscreen with my Bluestone Sunshield?


Wearing Bluestone Sunshields offer the same amount of protection as an SPF 50+ sunscreen. There maybe areas however that are not covered by the sunshield (ie. ears or neck) so we will recommend paring with a sunscreen or our Bluestone Sunscarf if you are looking for a chemical free option.




How do I clean my Bluestone Sunshield?


The reflective finish on Bluestone Sunshields will easily show oils and finger prints so keep you shield looking fresh by using our 3pc Cleaning Kit which includes Bluestone Cleaning Spray, a Bluestone Cleaning Cloth and it's all available in the Bluestone Carrying Kit. No kit? No problem! Use a lens cleaner and soft cloth that you have at home. We always recommend testing a small area first.
