Unlock UVR8 for more unique plant compounds...

UVR8 is a protein which is produced by some types of plants in defence against UVB light. It is stimulated by UVB light at 288nm.

UVlight (within the range of 280-320nm), is normally received from the sun. When a plant detects UVat 288nm, it produces the UVR8 protein. This protein acts as a chemical messenger which in turn, signals to the plant to secrete more oils and resins to help protect itself from the UVB rays.


Only Solacure lamps have the UVR8 effect

Virtually no lamps produce UVB in the 280-320nm range due, in part, to the limitations of the glass. Solacure lamps are the sole exception as they use a type of glass designed specifically for transparency across the entire UVspectrum.

This patented glass technology, combined with our unique blend of phosphors and high output, is what makes Solacure lamps the most effective producers of UVA and UVB light, and the only lamps capable of triggering the full UVR8 effect.
