Frequently Asked Questions about UV-C
What is UV-C light and how is it different from other UV lights?
UV light has three wavelength categories: UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C. UV-C light is a short-wavelength, ultraviolet light that breaks apart germ DNA, leaving it unable to function or reproduce. Compared to the other wavelengths, UV-C light is a natural sterilizer and can kill up to 99.9% of microbiomes (germs, bacteria, and viruses).
When did people start using UV-C to sanitize?
For hundreds of years! People have been sanitizing with UV-C light since the turn of the century. In 1903, a Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded to Niels Finsen for incorporating the use of UV light in battling tuberculosis. Today, medical centers, labs, and facilities use UV-C sanitizing lights to keep their environments sterile and safe.
Can I use UV-C on any surface?
UV-C sanitization can be used on any surface including utensils, eyewear, toys, and clothes. For best results, sanitize for 10 - 15 seconds hovering 2-3 inches away from the surface of the item that you're sanitizing.
Is UV-C safe for humans?
Yes - when used with caution. We can't stress this enough. A UV-C sanitizing device is not a toy. When used on the human skin, the UV-C rays will cause irritation and long term exposure can lead to skin damage. When using a UV-C sanitizer, ensure that you're pointing the UV-C light down and away from you (the Kapsule™ UV sanitizer has a built in security feature to prevent usage when faced up). When UV-C sanitizing lights are used in moderation with caution, they are safe for human usage.
