About the radiation
ULTRA VIOLET RADIATION: WHAT IS IT?
Ultraviolet radiation (R.UV) is part of sunlight that hits the earth and corresponds to about 7% of the total radiation emitted by the sun and is divided into 3 sub-intervals: UVA, UVB and UVC. Each wavelength has a different effect on humans. Depending on the time and intensity of exposure, the effects range from vitamin D3 synthesis, to burns, premature aging and skin cancer. Upon reaching our skin, the UV rays penetrate deeply and trigger immediate and / or late reactions.
ULTRAVIOLET RADIATION A (UVA)
- More harmful and reached deeper layers of the skin
- Causes premature aging and skin cancer
- Intense throughout the whole year
ULTRAVIOLET RADIATION B (UVB)
- Causes sunburn and redness
- More intense during summer
ULTRAVIOLET RADIATION C (UVC)
Fully absorbed by oxygen and ozone from the atmosphere.
