An alternative to the stinky, streaky Mystic tan — in your home
By now, we all know the dangers that come with tanning beds, yet we can’t get away from loving bronzed skin. That’s one of the many reasons spray tans have become so popular. Thing is, people sometimes shy away from the Mystic due to potential streaking, the orange hue and the distinguishable odor it leaves on your skin. Read More

“A safe tan is just a spray away”
For those who aren’t fans of tanning beds, or who want to limit their sun exposure, there’s another way to get that bronzed look. More and more, people are hopping into a booth, for a three to five-minute spritz of spray-on solution. Read More.

New Study Shows Alarming Rise in Melanoma in Young Women Ages 15 to 39.
“Now, a new study from researchers at the National Cancer Institute which is reported in the Washington Post has revealed a dramatic alarming increase in the diagnosis of new melanoma cases in younger women, based on an analysis of government cancer statistics. The rate of diagnosis of new melanomas in women aged between 15 and 39 has risen 50 percent since 1980, even though the rate did not increase for men within the same age range during the same time period.” Read More.

What is DHA?
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, the most effective sunless tanning products contain dihydroxyacetone (DHA) as the active ingredient. DHA is a colorless chemical (it is derived from glycerin) that interacts with the amino acids in dead skin cells to produce a brown color change. Since these dead skin cells are constantly being shed, the color change produced by DHA usually lasts about five to seven days. DHA is not absorbed through the skin into the body and it has no known toxicity. DHA was first discovered by the Germans in the late 1920’s when DHA spilled on the skin produced a brown color. DHA has been listed with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) since 1973, and has been used in cosmetic preparations for almost 30 years.

What is a DHA-spray “tanning” booth?
In commercial spray “tanning” booths, consumers receive an application of DHA in the form of a mist or spray. Is it safe to be sprayed with a product containing DHA? There is no evidence to suggest that DHA is not safe. The Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FD&C) authorizes the regulation of color additives, including their uses and restrictions. DHA is listed in these regulations as a color additive for use in imparting color to the human body.

Are there any restrictions about the use of DHA?
Yes, the use of DHA in cosmetics, including sunless “tanning” products, is restricted to EXTERNAL application only. According to the Code of Federal Regulations, “externally applied” cosmetics are those “applied only to external parts of the body and not to the lips or any body surface covered by mucous membrane. In addition, no color additive may be used in cosmetics intended for use in the area of the eye unless the color additive is permitted specifically for such use.
