There are three types of UV:

  1. UV-C , which does not reach the earth's surface because it is absorbed by the ozone layer and the atmosphere. They would also make life impossible on earth, and are mainly used for their sterilizing properties.
  2. UV-B rays, which are partly filtered by the atmosphere and only penetrate the superficial layers of the skin. They are responsible for burns, sunburn , and also play, like UV-A, a role in the premature aging of the skin.
  3. UV-A rays penetrate the deep layers of the skin and alter our cells in the long term. They accelerate the premature aging of the skin with the appearance of wrinkles and pigment spots .
