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 CFR, “externally applied” cosmetics are those “applied only to external parts of the body and not to the lips or any body surface covered by mucous membrane.” (21 CFR 70.3v)
DHA reacts with the skin’s amino acids resulting in a “tan” similar to that of the sun. The darker you can tan naturally, the darker you can tan with a spray tan. 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.
Spray tanning does not contain sunscreen and does not protect the skin from UV exposure. Repeated exposure of unprotected skin may cause skin aging, skin cancer or other harmful effects to the skin even if you do not burn.
All ingredients used in this procedure are intended for cosmetic use and generally regarded as safe. Be advised there is a small percentage of people whose skin may not react favorably to spray tanning. Individuals may be allergic to one or more ingredients in the spray tan solution. Ask for our ingredients list if you have any known allergies. We always recommend a trail session prior to big events.
Pregnant or nursing women should consult their physician before using.
Your spray tan should last 5-7 days depending on your skin type and how well you prepare for and take care of your sunless tan. It’s very important to keep your skin moisturized after your spray tan, avoiding long baths or showers or hot tubs. Salt water exposure or a chlorinated pool can also shorten your spray tan.
