Facts about UV radiation

  • The sun emits UVA, UVB and UVC radiation. The ozone layer blocks all UVC radiation, most UVB but none of the UVA radiation.
  • As UVA penetrates deeper into the skin, overexposure may cause some damage, such as wrinkles and discoloration.
  • Overexposure to UVB can cause sunburn, which also causes skin damage.
  • Heat or high temperatures are not an indication of UV levels, factors such as latitude, clouds, reflection from surfaces, time of year and time of day will determine UV levels.
