What is spray tanning and how does it work?

Spray tanning is a process that uses an air compressor delivery system to gently and evenly apply tanning solution to the skin.  The tanning solution is streak-free, applies easily and evenly, absorbs quickly, gives a natural-looking golden tan, and fades like a real tan. The final effect will last up to 7 days as the skin slowly exfoliates off the dead skin cells.

The active ingredient in the spray tan solution is DHA-dihydroxyacetone derived from sugar cane interacts with the proteins and amino acids in the outer layer of your skin to produce a golden brown color, this reaction takes 4 to 6 hours to visibly emerge into a golden tan. It then continues to develop over the next 24 hours. The color that results varies slightly from individual to individual according to natural skin tones.
