Results The results show that most of the volunteers had a "light" skin color at their unexposed sites, namely grade II (65.5%), and then grade III (intermediate, 23.1 %), and I (very light, 9.6%). The skin colors at exposed sites of the studied group were mainly grade I I I (intermediate, 45.7%), followed by grade IV (tan, 42.0%) and II (light, 7.9%).
