Chromalux® Full Spectrum PAR38 Halogen Lamp 90W
A PAR lamp unlike any other. Chromalux® PAR brings out the colors of everything they light, uniquely equipped with a neodymium lens and pure silver reflector for optimal color correction and enhancement.
If your recessed ceiling fixtures can accommodate an R40/PAR38 size lamp (check specs below), consider this beautiful option for some seriously pure, vivid, and beautiful flood/spotlighting. PAR lamps create a narrow flood beam of light, which is a more direct and precise beam of light than R-style flood lamps (for example, an equivalent R40-type bulb). We often describe R-style lamps as general lighting, and PAR lighting as more elegant lighting. In the case of Chromalux® PAR lamps, the light isn't only elegant, it's simply stunning.
Can also be used outdoors for some (very) upgraded outdoor floodlighting.

⚡️low flicker, no EMF
The ultimate light bulb for your health and well-being! Chromalux® full spectrum lamp has been enhancing people's lives and the spaces they live in since it was first created in Finland over 40 years ago.
The Chromalux® full spectrum bulb creates a soothing yet vibrant interior space that you'll love to live, work, and play in.
All Chromalux® light bulbs contain neodymium glass which filters out yellow and other dulling frequencies of the light spectrum, resulting in filtered light with enhanced violet, blue, green, and red tones. The result is an environment that comes to life: colors are more vibrant, textures enhanced, and contrast increased.
Chromalux® bulbs are the ultimate tool in supporting your health + well-being. They are, by definition, low in flicker, EMF safe, and absolutely beautiful.
Feel Better: Well-being all year round
Designed for extended usage as a healthy replacement for ordinary light bulbs, Chromalux® provides your body with the pure full spectrum light it was designed to receive by closely mimicking nature's sunlight. Chromalux® bulbs contain more of the soothing red spectrum with no peaks or valleys in the visible light spectrum, consistent with natural daylight, and unlike many other types of lighting.
See Better: Eye Health, Visual Comfort+Acuity
Chromalux® bulbs are naturally low in flicker, and its signature neodymium glass filters glare and creates better contrast and definition between colors, tones, and textures. Thanks to its inherent chromatic balance and color discriminating qualities, Chromalux® has been a top recommendation for the low vision population since the 1980s, and has been shown to enhance visual acuity.
Enhanced Environments: Pure+Vivid Colors
Chromalux® is the original neodymium glass light bulb, which works by purifying the visible light spectrum - removing glare and dulling frequencies - while strengthening violet, red, blue, and green values. As a result, light is filtered, cutting glare and revealing the most beautiful crisp and vivid colors.
The Chromalux® light bulb brings the beautifully enhanced colors, texture, and contrast inherently present under natural sunlight, back into the home.
Under Chromalux® light, you'll notice colors, textures, and tones become more vibrant and your home more alive! We like to say Chromalux® is like photoshop for real life!

Our Magic Element
Without ever turning it on, the most noticable quality of a Chromalux® light bulb is its lovely lavender glass. Responsible for this lovely tint and pure light output of Chromalux® is the element neodymium.
A stunning lavender or blue in appearance, neodymium is an earth element that possesses some unique color enhancing and purification qualities.
Neodymium acts as a filter - absorbing dulling components of the visible light spectrum - like yellow - to purify your environment and naturally enhance colors and textures.
When used in Chromalux® light bulbs, these color enhancing and purification qualities are simply stunning.
Are these dimmable?
Our frosted glass reflector (R) flood bulbs and all PAR halogen bulbs are dimmable.
Our reflector flood (R) style lamps in clear glass are not dimmable.
What is the difference between reflector (R) flood bulbs and PAR bulbs?
While both are perfect for use in either recessed can or track lighting, the light beam of flood type light bulbs (R style light bulbs) have a less defined edge than a comparable PAR light bulb.
Flood bulbs are great for general illumination and covering large areas with light.
PAR bulbs are more like spot lights, with a defined and focused beam of light.
How do I know which size flood bulb I need?
Measure your current bulb's diameter and length from base to top, then select our bulb that is closest in size (scroll up to find a bulb's size under the tab entitled "specs"). Most BR30 bulbs and BR40 bulbs are comparable to our R30 and R40 bulbs, respectively.
If you don't have an existing bulb, measure the diameter of your recessed fixtures.
Usually, 3'' diameter = R20/PAR20, 4 or 5'' diameter = R30/PAR30, and 6'' diameter = R40/PAR38
Our R25 bulb is an unusual shape, but is commonly used in either 4" or 5" cans.
Pro tip: if any bulb is a bit shorter in length than the depth of your fixture, you can use something called an E26 socket extender to add an inch or so of length to your bulb and to drop it more flush with your fixture opening.
