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.
Your airbrush tan should last 7-10 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. Following the session, please avoid tight clothes, excessive perspiring, and do not shower for at least 8-10 hours if you received the Signature Tan. If you received a Rapid Tan, please speak with your airbrush technician on your desired shower time (2-4 hours). We always recommend a trial session a few weeks in advance before any big event to ensure we find the perfect shade for you. Some fabrics may be lightly stained by the airbrush tanning solution but may wash out. Please use caution and care.
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.
