Sunlight is a double-edged sword. It’s essential for life on earth, required for vitamin D production in the majority of land vertebrates and a lack of sunlight can cause severe depression in humans. But it can also be harmful. UVB rays (280 – 315 nm) found on sunny days cause the skin to burn and are responsible for most types of skin cancer. UVA rays (315 – 400 nm) are always present cause the skin to age and become leathery. To protect us from the harmful effects of UVA and UVB irradiation, molecular sunscreens have been developed. The molecules below are either UVA blockers, UVB blockers, or both.
