The Fourth Element Hydroskin is a long sleeve rash vest made using sustainable techno-fabric made with Econyl® a 100% regenerated polyamide fibre from post-consumer materials. The rash vest can be worn under a wetsuit or can help to reduce the amount of sunscreen that you need to apply by providing UV protection UPF 50+.
Econyl® is two times more resistant to chlorine, suntan creams and oils than other fabrics. These amazing results are achieved thanks to innovative construction and the presence of LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™.

Fourth Element are committed to doing everything they can to preserve oceans for the future and with this in mind introduced their Ocean Positive range of swimwear and products. Ocean Positive products were originally conceived a from recycled ghost nets and other discarded waste – turned into ECONYL® yarn to use in their swimwear and rashguards. They are constantly reviewing their products to add more sustainable fabrics and ensuring anything created is thoughtfully considered for its environmental impact.
Examples of Fourth Element's sustainable practices include:
- Products are packaged in compostable or FSC certified paper bags or cardboard.
- Their headquarters in Cornwall is entirely powered by solar power.
- Organic waste is composted on site allowing them to test the claims of compostability by packaging suppliers.
- Wetsuits which cannot be repaired or sold are either donated to charitable groups such as those introducing wounded servicemen and women to scuba diving and surfing, or scout troops, or they are re-purposed by local groups into book bags as part of a local young enterprise programme.
- They have their milk delivered in glass bottles from the local dairy.
