Organic Spray Tanning and Organic Solution – Clearing up the confusion

So what is organic tanning? Is there such a thing as an organic spray tan solution? And what on earth does Eco Certified DHA mean?

Ok, first let me put out the biggest fire of them all:

The main tanning ingredient DHA (Dihydroxyacetone) – is naturally derived HOWEVER the process that DHA must go through to be used in tanning solution, physically makes it IMPOSSIBLE to EVER gain organic certification. 

So DHA can not be organic, ECO Certified DHA is also not organic. Eco Certification is a standard.

The first element is how long before showering and the second element is how long it takes for the tan to reach its final colour – development time.

The first element is dependent on how dark you would like your tan to be. If the solution […]

A spray tan that lasts 2-3 weeks? Too good to be true?

Short answer, yes. This is one of the most over inflated marketing claims in the spray tanning industry. I take a deep breathe as I explain. Spray tanning solution sits on TOP of the skin – it does not penetrate the deeper layers, if it did, I wouldn’t do it because it would be an invasive treatment.
