What do we mean when we talk about “safe sunlight”? It is quite a statement at a time when we are more aware than ever of the relationship between sunlight and skin cancer.
By safe sunlight we mean low-dosed UV light. A 10-minute session for the Sunshower is comparable to 10 minutes in the Dutch summer sun. In principle you cannot get sunburn by this and it is enough to experience the positive effects of the sunlight.
Low dose of filtered UV light
10 x 10 minutes is not the same as 1 x 100 minutes certainly with sunlight. UV light is harmful to the skin, even in a low dose. Isn’t that dangerous? When you have a healthy immune system, the skin repairs that “damage” continuously and no problems arise. But due to long-term high sun exposure, such as all day at the beach without UV protection, so much damage can occur that the skin can no longer repair it. There is a good chance that a “mistake” will slip through. Mistakes like that can lead to skin cancer.
