Are sunset lamps safe?

We know that light therapy, especially in those dark and dreary winter months, can have positive effects on our mental health, allowing folks to feel happier and more relaxed even on those days when the sun peaces out before 5 pm. 

But are sunset lamps safe? Rest assured! Generally, sunset lamps and other light therapy lamps are considered safe, as they don't give off any harmful UV radiation.

Are sunset lamps worth it?

Okay, sure, there are prettier lighting options than an industrial-looking sunset lamp projector to have out in the open, with beautiful bases and dainty lampshades and whatnot, but if it's a prettier light that you're after, one that will add immediate ambiance to your room, you can't go wrong with a sunset lamp.
