R30 / 72W Chromalux® Enhanced™ Full Spectrum Reflector
The best-selling floodlight by Chromalux®, the original light bulb for health and wellness since 1959.
Among our top choices for use in recessed fixtures, this lovely and versatile flood bulb is ideal for residential applications that require beautiful, pure and color-defined illumination.
The R30 72 Watt flood lamp is our improved version of our old R30 100W frosted flood. It uses the same pure neodymium glass envelope as traditional Chromalux® incandescent but provides 18% more light, better lumen efficiency, and a whiter light spectrum (4200K vs. 3750K).
Some of our favorite applications for this bulb are in kitchen, living room, and recessed light fixtures; this bulb has a beautifully uplifting rosy, vivid appearance, accentuating all the colors in your environment!
This is the perfect, just-right light to use as an all-around, general flood light throughout your home.
Features of Chromalux® Reflector Lamps:
-Neodymium glass filters out dulling light frequencies, revealing crisp light and vivid colors.
-Real silver reflector instead of a painted-on reflector for superior light quality, luminosity, and brilliance.
-Outside frosting * instead of inside frosting for less glare and light that is softer on and better for the eyes.
-Chromed brass socket instead of an aluminum socket for superior lamp life and to prevent corrosion.

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 60 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.
Many of the benefits of Chromalux® lie in our signature neodymium glass, which purifies light to provide the ultimate soft, crisp, and pure natural light that helps you see better and makes you feel better, all while providing your body with the pure, full spectrum of visible (and non-visible light) it requires.
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.
Just like the quality of food we ingest, the quality of light we use can make a difference in our overall well-being and vitality.
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 most types of lighting available today.
See Better: Eye Health, Visual Comfort+Acuity
Chromalux® bulbs are naturally low in flicker, but the real difference is seen through its signature neodymium glass, which filters glare and creates better contrast and definition between colors, tones, and textures, to finally allow your eyes to relax and see clearer. Thanks to these 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: very much 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.
Man what a difference these bulbs make! Changed the whole house and difference is palpable even to the kids.
These bulbs are the best! They give a beautiful, natural light, and the energy saving bulbs (70W give 100w light) make me happy, too.
Easy to order, well packed, and arrive quickly.
Thank you for a great product.
This has a much nicer quality of light than the other brands of neodymium floods that used to be made. I think It has a lot to do with the reflector material, which i understand to be made with real silver rather than silver-colored paint. They have a very pleasing glow when dimmed, almost like being around a camp fire. They are expensive, but if they last as long as they are rated for the cost works out to be about the same as regular incandescent bulbs.
