The active ingredient in sunless tanning products is DHA (dihroxyacetone). A colorless sugar, DHA interacts with the proteins in the outer layers of your skin to produce a golden brown color. Gone are the days of orange tones associated with self tanning products. Our solutions are designed to look natural on all skin tones, the color is PERFECT!
The airbrush is a precision instrument that allows for a smooth, flawless application. Spray booths have little control over the product's flow and where it will land on your body. Tanning via the sun or any type of tanning bed causes harmful damage to the skin and will lead to premature aging and fine lines.
Your tan will last 5-7 days and can last longer if you follow the before and after care instructions. A sunless tan fades just like a tan from the sun. As your body naturally exfoliates itself, your tan will fade. Proper hydration and care is key to a lasting tan.
