The amount of UV light generated by PureFize is minimal and optimized for the food container environment. When used as instructed, PureFize is considered entirely safe. The low intensity of the light, combined with built-in safety features, ensures that users can feel confident in using the product.
In the unlikely event that the safety feature is overridden, either accidentally or deliberately, the dose of UV light remains very small. To experience symptoms equivalent to sunburn or potential consequences, one must be repeatedly and closely exposed to UV light for an extended period.
However, it’s important to note that direct and prolonged exposure to powerful UV light sources can be harmful. Therefore, it is crucial to exercise caution when dealing with such light sources.
Regarding the safety regulations for individuals working with UV light daily, the EU directive recommends a daily exposure limit of 30 J/m2. To put this into perspective, this is equivalent to:
Please note that when using PureFize according to the instructions, you will not be exposed to any light at all. The following information will provide further context:
UV light is a naturally generated light emitted by the sun. It is widely recognized that prolonged sun exposure without sunscreen or for extended periods can be harmful. Repeated sunburns significantly increase the risk of developing skin cancer, particularly melanoma.
Due to its higher intensity, only a small amount of light is required to eliminate microorganisms, which effectively benefits safety.
Your PureFize device includes a built-in safety feature that ensures the lights can only be activated when the device is correctly placed on the lid. As soon as you remove it, the lights will automatically shut off.
If the safety function is overridden, there is no need to panic. The table above can be used to estimate your exposure and compare it to the time spent in the sun.
