  Ultraviolet (UV) light is a powerful, potentially damaging type of invisible light we receive from the sun as well as from some artificial light sources. Scientifically speaking, it oscillates (vibrates) rapidly -- about 750,000 gigahertz to 5,000,000 gigahertz, and its wave is short lying just past the violet end of the visible light spectrum from about 380 nanometers to roughly 60 nanometers (3800 to 600 angstroms).

This very high energy type of light will easily damage rubber compounds, plastics, fiberglass, textiles, paper and wood products, candles, and biological organisms, just to name a few things. It acts by breaking weak chemical bonds which then leaves free radicals available to continue doing further damage since these free radicals are, themselves, unstable and looking for a place to connect. The result of this damage ranges from the breakdown of pigments and dyes (color fading), to brittle, cracked plastics and chalky fiberglass, and finally to direct destruction of biological DNA.

Although much of the cell-damaging UV light is absorbed by the earth's ozone layer, 300 nanometers and shorter, we still have a considerable amount of UV light with which to contend -- the range from 380 nanometers down to 300 nanometers. This means that all of the cosmetics we wear, all of the paints and clear-coats we use to brighten our homes and cars, all of the tents we sleep in while camping, and all of the products we have created to make life easier and more fun are all being constantly bombarded by this remaining ultraviolet light.
