Infrared Sauna

The first and only infrared saunas to offer near, mid and far infrared technology. This smart technology is proven effective, customizable to individual needs and allows you to track results. These are not just simple saunas, they are wellness tools that are adaptable to your health needs over tim


Patented Solocarbon 3-in-1® is the only sauna heater on the market to provide all three infrared wavelengths in one place and customizable to each user.

  • Proven 99% efficient across all wavelengths for optimal health benefits 
  • Advanced LEDs provide true near infrared at a consistent output for cell rejuvenation and anti-aging
  • High power IF across near infrared, mid infrared, and far infrared wavelengths – a prime indicator of heater quality
  • Emissive coating produces more infrared per square inch over any other heater on the market
All heaters must be covered as a standard safety hazard precaution. Sunlighten provides non-toxic and highly emissive carbonized bamboo as a protective cover on our Solocarbon® heating technology, having our customer’s ultimate comfort & safety in mind!

Near Infrared

Near infrared (NIR) is the shortest infrared wavelength and penetrates the skin’s surface
more effectively than the other two. Scientific research shows that when delivered at the
vital wavelength of 880nm without extreme heat or light, NIR promotes skin renewal, cell health, wound healing, and tissue growth.

NIR heaters consisting of high-wattage halogen bulbs at extremely high temperatures are
not comfortable or beneficial. In order to make NIR heat safe for saunas, we used NASA
research to develop a patented LED array that provides NIR at a singular wavelength with minimal variability and virtually undetectable heat and light.

LEDs are effective because they can trigger a natural photo-biochemical reaction (similar
to how plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue). Research from Dr.
Harry Whelan, it takes a specific joule of NIR energy to deliver the wavelength needed
to penetrate human tissue.

 

Mid Infrared

Mid infrared (MIR) is a longer wavelength that can penetrate deeper into the body’s soft tissue where inflammation occurs. MIR helps expand blood vessels and increases circulation, so more oxygen can reach injured areas of the body. This reduces pain and speeds the healing process. View 3-in-1 study on pain relief.

To produce MIR, sauna heaters must be able to maintain a surface temperature of 250⁰C. Though many sauna companies claim to provide full spectrum, the polypropylene material used in their heaters actually melts at the high temperature required for MIR. We worked with engineers and scientists to overcome this obstacle by using a higher quality product – DuPont’s Kapton® polyimide film—a high tech material made to tolerate the high heat required to produce MIR. Plus, since our full spectrum heaters are made up of three distinct heating elements, the MIR layer can be heated independently to a higher temperature than the FIR layer.

 

Far Infrared

The longest wavelength, far infrared (FIR), reaches deepest into the body, where toxins
are stored. By raising your core body temperature, FIR stimulates the sweat glands,
resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat that leaves you feeling revitalized. Plus, since
sweating increases heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate, you’re also burning
calories.

We already achieved the most effective far infrared heater with our highly emissive
Solocarbon heater coating . We’ve applied that same coating to our polyimide panel
and discovered this application makes it 99% emissive! This is why Solocarbon panels
are the only far infrared heater clinically shown to raise core body temperature nearly 3°
for the most detoxifying sweat, lower systolic and diastolic blood pressure and aid in
weight loss.
