What is an organic Spray tan?

An organic spray tan is a sunless tanning method that involves applying a tanning solution to the skin using a spray gun or airbrush. What sets Golden glo® apart from conventional spray tans is that the tanning solution used is formulated with organic and natural ingredients, as opposed to synthetic chemicals commonly found in traditional spray tanning products.

Key characteristics of an organic spray tan include:

  1. Organic Ingredients: The tanning solution is made from organic and natural ingredients, such as plant extracts, botanicals, and minerals. These ingredients are often chosen for their skin-friendly and non-toxic properties.

  2. DHA (Dihydroxyacetone): Like traditional spray tans, organic spray tans rely on DHA as the active ingredient. DHA is a colorless sugar derived from sources like sugar beets and sugar cane. When applied to the skin, DHA interacts with the amino acids in the skin's outermost layer to produce a temporary tan that typically lasts several days.

  3. Reduced Chemicals: Organic spray tans usually have fewer synthetic chemicals, fragrances, and preservatives compared to conventional tanning solutions. This can make them a preferred choice for individuals with sensitive skin or those seeking more natural alternatives.

  4. Safer for the Environment: Organic spray tanning products are often formulated to be environmentally friendly and biodegradable, minimizing their impact on ecosystems. 

  5. Customizable Shades: Just like traditional spray tans, organic spray tans can be customized to achieve the desired tan shade. We can adjust the solution's intensity to match your skin tone and preferences.

  6. Professional Application: Organic spray tans are typically administered by trained technicians. Our technicians are highly trained and will use a spray gun to evenly apply the tanning solution to your body.

It's essential to note that while organic spray tans may use more natural ingredients, the end result is still a temporary tan, and the tan will gradually fade as your skin naturally sheds its outermost layer. To maintain the tan, you may need to schedule touch-up sessions about every 7-10 days.

If you're interested in getting an organic spray tan, it's a good idea to consult with a certified technician at a reputable salon or spa to discuss your options and ensure a safe and even application. We offer a complimentary consultation with every appointment and even offer patch testing for those who may have allergies to test prior to your spray tan. 

Spray tan aftercare

Right after your session, moisturize your skin with a gentle and fragrance-free moisturizer.

  • Do not wear a dress for 10 minutes, whether you are in a salon or at home

  • Do not exercise

  • Stay out of chlorine-containing pools.

  • Remember to delay bathing for a minimum of 24 hours following application as it takes time for the solution to merge on your body.
