- Wavelengths span 280 nm to 315 nm1
- Inflicts more potential damage in superficial epidermal layers but may penetrate to the dermis1,3
- A primary cause of skin reddening and sunburn3
- A factor in the development of skin cancer3
- Contributes to hyperpigmentation and other signs of photoaging3
- Wavelengths reach between 315 nm and 400 nm1
- Rays are consistently intense throughout daylight hours, regardless of season or cloud cover3
- Radiation penetrates dermis, deeper than UVB1,3
- Delivers about 95% of the UV radiation reaching the Earth’s surface3
- Accelerates photoaging effects4
—Poor skin tone
- Damages keratinocytes, thereby contributing to the development of skin cancer3
[column type="1/3" last="true"]
- Near IR wavelengths are between 780 nm and 1400 nm1
- Manifested as heat on the skin’s surface5
- Penetrates deeper than UVA and UVB rays, reaching the subcutaneous layer of skin1

Daily Sun Protection Is Essential to Help Preserve Skin Health
The Importance of Sunscreen Composition
The American Academy of Dermatology recommends daily use of sunscreens that provide8:
- Broad-spectrum protection against UVA and UVB radiation
- Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 30 or greater
—SPF indicates the duration of protection against UVB rays vs not using a sunscreen3
- Water resistance
Different Ingredients Provide a Range of Benefits
- Minerals such as zinc oxide or titanium dioxide deflect solar radiation9
- Chemicals such as octyl methoxycinnamate or oxybenzone absorb UV radiation and disperse it as heat9
- Newer technologies address infrared radiation by helping to buffer the skin from the heat-derived oxidation process4,10
