Why Our Children’s Sunglases are Made from Polycarbonate

Posted on Leave a comment

What do our children’s sunglasses and bullet proof vests have in common? Polycarbonate. Our hard wearing lenses are all made of super tough polycarbonate, the same material used in bullet proof vests, automobile headlights, and CDs.


When we developed our children and infant sunglasses we wanted the toughest material available. Polycarbonate was an easy choice because it is both shatterproof and impact-resistant.


If you are reading this blog chances are you are a parent. So, we are preaching to the choir when we tell you kids are tough on things! And we are parents, too, so we knew the peace of mind a pair of sunglasses like these can provide. Sunglasses that block UVA and UVB rays while also being impact-resistant and shatterproof will protect our kids’ eyes from the sun and from further injury in a situation such as an accidental elbow to the eye! However, just because sunglasses are tough, it doesn’t mean they can’t look great, as well. Check out some of the fun shades designed by Real Kids Shades.

We named these sunglasses Xtreme Chill because they were designed for cold weather wear. However, most kids consider their looks “xtremely chill.”
