The active ingredient in spray tan solutions is, Dihydroxyacetone (DHA for short) which causes a chemical reaction with the amino acids in the outermost layer of the skin.  This reaction causes the colour of the skin to change, producing a beautiful, natural tan.  DHA starts to react with the skin within 2 hours of the tan application and continues to do so for a total of 8 hours, after which time you can then shower, however with the new developments in tanning LA Tan have created a fast tan development time can be as little as 2-4 hours. 

For the standard solutions allowing the reaction process to be complete is very important for the quality of the tan.  Having a shower, washing, swimming or doing strenuous exercise during the first 8-12 hours can cause the tan to look streaky or patchy.

The tan achieved, is similar to that you can achieve through sunbathing, but without causing any damage to the skin.  With absolutely no sun exposure at all, the tan will last between 5-7days.

In the past people have had to rely on difficult to apply, poorly coloured self-tan solutions and bronzers with the only alternative being sun-beds / solariums.  It seems, however, that this type of bronzing is now in serious decline.  Much of this can be attributed to more and more evidence suggesting that prolonged exposure to UV lights may increase your chances of developing skin cancer.  Moreover, people have been demanding a form of bronzing that does not dry or prematurely age the skin. 

Due to its safe nature and flawless results, spray tanning will appeal to a very wide client base.  By using spray tanning it is a much safer way to achieve that healthy sun-tanned glow .
