Myth Buster: UV Light and Skin

The World Health Organisation (WHO) have published a list of myth busters for everyone to read, understand and share. In particular, there is one myth that caught our attention and we must share it with you.

Myth: UV radiation can cause skin irritation and damage your eyes.

Verdict: True

This is 100% true - UV light should never be used to disinfect hands or any skin. In fact, it should not be used on humans or animals at all. UV is a type of radiation - think of the sun's rays - and exposing it to skin is very harmful. 

The only way to ensure your hands and skin are clean is to regularly wash them with soap and water, or use an alcohol based hand rub. 

But what about all the surfaces and objects we all touch and handle? How do we effectively keep these clean? There's only so many anti-bac wipes and spray I can buy!

Have no fear, we have a range of UVC sanitising products that will help you get your home and surroundings disinfected and cleaned, as detailed below. 

Our LiteZapp UVC Product range contains UVC light and can be used on surfaces, objects and food items only. The UVC light gets activated upon the 'on' button and will protect against  germs and bacteria by deactivating the DNA that holds them together.
