Founded in 2002 by Elissa Margulies and husband Michael Ross, Physician Endorsed offers a chic and modern option for UV protection. Physician Endorsed is the first fashion-forward line of hats and shades, tested and rated for maximum sun protection. Designer, Elissa Margulies, creates an instant "it-girl" look for women seeking sun protection and gets her inspiration from the exotic places she has traveled.
All Physician Endorsed hats offer guaranteed sun protection of UPF 50, which is equivalent to SPF 30. Similarly, all lenses are rated UV 400 and provide maximum sun protection for the sensitive eye area. Fabulous and functional, Physician Endorsed hats and sunglasses provide 96-99% protection against UVA and UVB rays, making them a favorite of celebrities, plastic surgeons and dermatologists.
Having received the National Health and Wellness Club Seal of Approval, Physician Endorsed also created a national Medical Advisory Board, which assists in the development of new products, all of which are created to ensure sun protection. All hats are crushable, washable, and lightweight to make sun protection fun and fashionable for every sunny soiree.
