What if I’m pregnant or nursing?
We have many clients that are pregnant and nursing, however we recommend that you consult with your physician before your tan. We can make an ingredient list available to you so that you can make the best decision.
Nursing mothers may opt to do the rapid tan since they can rinse off the solution within 1-4 hours. This may fit more conveniently between feedings. Others that opt for the regular solution wear pasties or a swimsuit top/bra.

The first 24 hours after your tan are critical for it’s longevity. The ingredient, DHA , stays active on the skin for 24 hours, so it is recommended by the manufacturer that you do not use soap all over the body within that first 24 hour period.

The active ingredient is DHA. DHA is short for dihydroxyacetone. It is a plant derived ingredient and reacts with the most superficial layers of your skin.

For a complete list of ingredients ask your technician so that you can get a comprehensive list specific to the solution that you are using.
