What is Infrared?
We help you “see” infrared in this video.
Animation helps make what’s invisible visible, so we created this 2-minute video to help you better understand what infrared is and how our bodies interact with it. Our bodies are like solar panels designed to absorb infrared light, which activates our body’s cells for vitality and energy. Watch to learn more!
Why People Trust Sunlighten’s Infrared Light Therapy
Sunlighten’s SoloCarbon® far infrared heaters are patented, meaning when you choose Sunlighten you can have peace of mind that you are getting the most infrared-dense sauna on the market for most effective results.
Sunlighten’s heaters are third-party tested 95-99% emissive, which proves our patented heaters and combinations of wavelengths in all of our saunas do what we say they do: emit the wavelengths the body absorbs best.
Only Sunlighten technology delivers specific infrared wavelengths that are dialed in to what the body absorbs best, like tuning your radio to the clearest channel, or like choosing supplements that are pure and free of extra fillers.
One size doesn’t fit all and only Sunlighten’s technologies give you option to choose the experience you want for yourself. From the simplicity of a single button in a Signature or Amplify to the world’s only sophisticated Smart Sauna with 6 pre-set wellness programs.
We led the infrared sauna industry by being the first to combine light science with published studies of how infrared affects the body; other companies followed us. We have the patent on our heaters and NASA-inspired LED panels which means only ours emit precise wavelength combinations.
Studies are costly and complex. Not many sauna companies have had clinical studies done on their saunas. Sunlighten has three studies using our technology that have proven ours temporarily lower BP, reduce waist size and increase flexibility.

Be encouraged: the cardio benefits of infrared saunas offer a form of heart exercise.
Saunaing actually offers a real solution to getting your heart working without demanding physical strain. Studies support the value of a sauna session as a form of cardiovascular exercise that we call “passive cardio” because it allows you to sit back and relax while your heart gets pumping.
