Dihydroxyacetone is the key ingredient that has been used in self tanning products for over 40 years. The first sunless tanning products were introduced by Coppertone. Dihydroxyacetone, also commonly referred to as DHA was in use in medication in the 60's but on occasion caused nausea in patients. It was noticed that when a patient vomited, that if any of the undigested DHA material came into contact with the skin, it would cause brown spots, thus the discovery of it's usefulness in tanning the skin.

The sunless spray on tan is a smooth delivery process of the active tanning ingredient. Dihydroxyacetone is actually a fermented glycerine or sugar derived from plants like beets or sugar cane. When the spray tan is applied to the skin, the DHA soaks into the stratum corneum or outermost layer of dead skin, causing a chemical reaction that turns the skin a tan or brown color. It is important to point out however, that too much DHA tanning product on light skin can cause an orange color. This can also occur with poorly manufactured products.

Spray on tans typically last from 5 to 8 days and dissipates with cell turnover. In other words- as you shed you top layer of dead skin, your tan goes with it. This is why it is important to shave and exfoliate before having a spray on tan. This way you are removing as much of your old lop layer of dead skin as possible and the layer of skin beneath will then be a fresh surface layer and thus stay intact longer.

Our following has grown over the years to around 10,000 people who come in yearly for spray tanning. This is because of our experience, attention to detail and the fact that we use only the finest only the finest tanning products on the market, manufactured by the Tango Sun company. We find that the tan produced with these products is the has everything we look for in sunless products. The initial color is perfectly balanced, the solution is not sticky, the product is organic and does not include harmful preservatives. It is manufactured in the USA,fragranced with real essential orange oil and produces a smooth consistent tan.
