Spray Tanning

Spray Tanning

Since Australia banned the use of commercial Tanning Beds & Solariums in 2015, we have seen a consistent increase in the use of fake tans across all age groups along with some exciting advancements in the development of Australian fake tan brands.

There has also been during this time, noticeable advancements and guidelines including tanning solutions, ingredients, base colours, development time, ventilation, equipment and essential accessories.

Global Conscience:
What is & what is NOT in your products

Australian tanning brands have gained global recognition for the quality and diversity of ingredients contained in their products such as Organic DHA derived from plant sources sugar beets & sugar cane, combined with botanical Erythrulose & enriched with Aloe Vera

Tanning brands are aligning themselves with professional and consumer expectations of quality cosmetic products including, consciously standing by their stance of ‘what is & what is not’ included in their products.  Many of the professional tanning brands research ingredients that are more natural including botanical extracts and vitamins.   

Development and Technology of tans

No longer do we need to pray to the tanning gods that we won’t be yellow, patchy or next level brown when we sleep in our tan!! 

Advancements with technology, techniques and ingredient blends like Quad bronzing technology means tanning brands now offer far more than just Light, Medium or Dark tans that take 8 hours to develop to their full potential.

R & D has pushed tanning companies to new areas of customer satisfaction with faster developing tans with a range of base shades and depths of colour. 


Caring for your health while tanning

Scientific studies on spray tanning were undertaken by the European Commission’s Safety Commission on Consumer Safety (EC SCCS). It concluded that Spray Tanning was indeed safe – although it should not be heavily inhaled or ingested.  

With this in mind, the FDA has also set out recommendations, not mandates, that should be supported and endorsed by professionals and consumers alike. The following precautions are suggested for any professional tan by handheld or spray booth systems: 

  • Use of Disposable Accessories

Tanning benefits & rewarding confidence

One shade does not always fit all so why should your tan be any different? 

Using the Fitzpatrick scale for skin and determining the best base for your client, you will be able to offer them stunning results every time regardless of how dark they want to go.  

By following the manufacturers directions of how long a tan should stay on before showering is crucial to achieve the desired look and prevent overdeveloping the tan.

If your client is time poor, lean toward express tans with a 1 hour development time. 4 hour tans are clients who have a bit of time to rest in their tan and 8 hour overnight tans are for those who like to sleep or rest the longest.  

Spray tanning, it’s not science but it is a skill.
