1) What is UV light?
UV refers to the ultraviolet light produced by the Sun. It contains three types of UV rays -- UVA, UVB, and UVC.
2) What's the difference between UVA, UVB, and UVC light?
UVA light, which makes up the vast majority of the ultraviolet radiation reaching the Earth's surface, is capable of penetrating deep into our skin. It's though to be responsible for up to 80% of skin aging.
UVB light damages the DNA in our skin, which leads to sunburn and, eventually, skin cancer (scientists have discovered that UVA light can also do this). Both UVA and UVB are reasonably well known and can be blocked out by most good sun creams.
Last but not least is the most dangerous type of UV-light, the UVC. This shorter, more energetic wavelength of light is particularly good at destroying genetic material - whether in humans or viral particles. Luckily, most of us won't be exposed to UVC because it's filtered out by the ozone layer long before it reaches our fragile skin.
3) What type of UV-light does the b-Vibe UV Sterilizer Pouch use?
UVC light. Scientists discovered that UVC eliminates up to 99.99% of germs and harmful bacteria by destroying their DNA & RNA. It also reduces any unpleasant smells by decomposing the molecular structure of odor.
Since the finding in 1878, using UVC light has become the most common method of sterilization throughout hospitals worldwide.
4) What wavelength spectrum does the b-Vibe UV Sterilizer Pouch utilize?
The UVC light reproduced harnesses a wavelength of 260-280 nanometers (nm) -- which effectively kills 99.99% of bacteria, micro-organisms, and viruses.
5) Can you use UVC light on your hands or skin?
No. The World Health Organization (WHO) has issued a stern warning against people using UV light to sterilize their hands or any other part of their skin.
It can take hours to get a sunburn from UVB, but with UVC, it takes seconds. UVC is nasty stuff, and you should never expose your skin to it.
6) What can you sterilize with UVC light?
Besides your favorite sex toys, you can use the b-Vibe UV Sterilizer Pouch on everyday household items such as cellphones, keys, toothbrushes, TV remotes, and other non-porous items.
7) How many disinfecting cycles can the b-Vibe UV Sterilizer Pouch run in a lifetime?
The LED in our bag has an approximate lifetime of between 8,000 to 10,000 minutes.
A disinfecting process takes up to 3 minutes per cycle, meaning that you can expect our UV Sterilizer Pouch to run between 2,500 and 3,000 times during its lifetime.
Like all b-Vibe products, the UV Sterilizer Pouch includes a 1-year limited warranty that protects it from any defects and quality for total peace of mind.
