Tanique® Sunless Tanning Release Form

Our objective at Tanique is to help you achieve a beautiful and natural airbrush tan without the harmful effects from ultraviolet light. Our airbrush tans are customized for you and your skintone. Your health, safety and comfort are of our greatest concern. 

Please be aware of the following:

DHA is listed in the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) as a color additive for use in imparting color to the human body. However, its use in cosmetics – including sunless “tanning” products – is restricted to external application. According to Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), “externally applied” cosmetics are those “applied only to external parts of the body and not to the lips or anybody surface covered by mucous membrane” (21 CFR 70.3v). [FD&C Act, Sec. 721; 21 U.S.C. 379e; 21 CFR Parts 70 and 80]

DHA reacts with the skin’s amino acids resulting in a “tan.” All ingredients in the product used are intended for cosmetic use and are generally regarded as safe. Like most cosmetics, avoid exposure to the eyes, lips, and other parts of the body covered with a mucous membrane. This should be accomplished by following the staff’s breathing instructions as to avoid inhaling or ingesting the sunless product.

Be advised there may be a small percentage of individuals whose skin does not react favorably to airbrush tanning. There are occasions where individuals may be allergic to one or more ingredients in the solution. If this occurs, shower and discontinue use. If severe reaction occurs, contact a physician.

We always recommend a trial session a few weeks in advance before any big event to ensure we find the perfect shade for you.

Your airbrush tan should last 5-10 days, depending on your pre and post-care regimen. It’s very important to keep your skin moisturized after application, avoiding long baths or showers and hot tubs (salt water exposure or a chlorinated pool can also shorten your tan). Avoid tight clothes and excessive perspiring following your session. Do not shower for at least 8 hours if you received the Classic Tan. If you received a Rapid Tan, please speak with your airbrush tanning specialist about your desired shower time (2-4 hours). Some fabrics may be lightly stained by the airbrush tanning solution but may wash out. Please use caution and care. See the bottom of this waiver for more detailed instructions.

Warning: Airbrush tans do not contain a sunscreen and does not protect against sunburn. Repeated exposure of unprotected skin may increase the risk of skin aging, skin cancer and other harmful effects to the skin even if you do not burn. 

I have read the contents of this consent form carefully and state that I authorize Tanique and all technicians to perform airbrush tanning procedures. I am not aware of any medical condition, allergies, or other reason that would prohibit me from airbrush tanning. I have been given adequate instructions for the proper use of the sunless application, understand the risks involved, and allow it to be used at my own risk. I have been advised to discontinue use if any adverse reaction occurs.

I do here and forever release, discharge, and hereby hold harmless Tanique and their respective agents, heirs, assigns, contractors, and employees from any and all claims, demands, damages, rights of action, or cause of action, present or future, arising out of or connected with my participation in this activity, including any injuries resulting there from. I acknowledge and agree that no warranties or representations have been made to me regarding the results I will achieve from this activity. I understand that results may vary.

Important Pre / Post Tan Instructions


The most crucial step is to shower, shave, and thoroughly exfoliate the day before your tanning session to achieve the best results. If you have to shower the day of your appointment, do a thorough cold water rinse at the end.

Waxing, spa treatments, manicures, and pedicures should all be completed at least one day prior - spray tanning should always be the last stop on your list due to the barrier those can create on the skin.

Avoid any lotions, oils, deodorants, perfumes or makeup the day of your appointment - these can make it difficult for your tan to adhere to your skin.

Wear dark, loose-fitting clothing for after your tanning session, as the bronzer may transfer to what you're wearing (if so, it will wash out). Do NOT wear any tight-fitting clothing such as leggings, jeans, and boots.

At your appointment, you will make a selection of either our custom Classic or Rapid rinse solution based on what works best for your schedule. All of our solutions contain a bronzer that you will see right away. The tan itself takes 8-12+ hours to fully develop, and you get to choose when you rinse the bronzer off depending on what option you pick.

If you do the Classic Tan, you must wait a minimum of 8 hours before rinsing. Depending on the time of your session, you may also sleep in the bronzer and rinse the next morning as this formula stops developing after the initial 8 hours.

If you do the Rapid Tan, you have to do a quick rinse within 2-4 hours after your session. It's a time sensitive solution and the ending result is based on how long you're leaving it on for within that time frame [2-2.5hrs - subtle glow, 3-3.5hrs - medium, 3-3.5hrs - medium/dark]. It contains a triple bronzer so you will feel dark at first and all of that will come off in your first rinse, then gradually re-appear to your desired shade as your tan continues to develop. This option simply gives you the convenience to rinse your bronzer off sooner! Your airbrush tanning specialist will discuss your recommended shower time at the end of your appointment.


Do not get wet, shower, sweat, workout, apply lotion or liquid makeup until after your initial rinse. If you have pets, do not let them lick you. If you touch yourself while your tan is developing, it could result in stained palms.

Your first shower post-session needs to be a quick rinse. NO soaps, shaving or scrubbing this time. While rinsing in warm water, gently use your hands all over to ensure all of the bronzer comes off. Depending on how dry your skin is, the bronzer may need a little extra guidance. If you do not rinse at your recommended time, your tan may develop too light or too dark.

Moisturize twice a day. This is the most important part of your tan's retention because the more hydrated your skin is, the longer your glow will last. Your lotion should contain NO mineral oil or artificial fragrance, these will strip the tan faster. Start using the Tanique Tan Extending Moisturizer after day three to give your glow a boost and ensure a nice even fade.

For all of your showers post first-rinse, avoid using any loofahs, wash cloths, or any sort of exfoliating products. It is best to use hands only to ensure a long-lasting tan. Do not use Dove, Olay, Bath & Body Works, Dial, or bar soaps as they break down your tan quicker. Grab the Tanique Body Wash at your appointment, as an all natural gel-based option is best.

Your sunless tan will not last if you will be in the pool/hot tub/ocean for long periods of time as well as taking hot showers, baths, going in saunas, and excessive sweating. If you plan to do any of these activities, make sure to snag the Tanique Tan Extending Moisturizer after your session to help keep your color for longer.

The average tan will last 5-10 days. Keep in mind that all of your pre/post tan care regimens, daily activities, products you're using, etc will determine how long it lasts. It can vary for everyone. Your tan may fade quicker in the areas that are getting the most washing (hands, face), where clothing may be rubbing, you're sweating, and so on. To help your tan last as long as possible, we recommend using Tanique skincare products that you can find in store and online.

If you have any other questions before your session, please take a minute to call the salon or ask your airbrush tanning specialist and we'll be happy to answer any that you may have!
