is it and how is it done?
tanning is a method of application of sunless tanning
solution. The solution is atomized
and sprayed evenly on the skin. Quality solutions such
as Tangosun contain the key ingredient DHA and a veritable
moisturizing complex along with fragrance, cosmetic
colorants and other ingredients. Tangosun has been producing
and perfecting these solutions for over ten years and
they are available on this and other site. We also produce our tanning solutions for other companies.
tanning or sunless tanning is sometimes referred to
as airbrush tanning which is kind of like calling your
refrigerator an "ice box" which, while charming
is not quite accurate. Airbrushes were the very first
tools used to atomize and propel DHA solutions onto
the skin. These systems worked but they required great
patience as airbrushes are smaller than HVLP spray guns
which are now used by any serious business for spray
way to better understand this in perspective is to first
realize that the average airbrush is the size of an
ink pen, while a spray gun is the size of a hairdryer.
An airbrush puts out only up to a two or three inch
pattern while spray guns go up to about twelve. The
difference in performance is night and day. HVLP (high
volume low pressure) guns were designed originally to
finish large surfaces and were quickly adapted for the
spray tanning industry. It is important to understand
that not just any HVLP gun will do the job. There are
hundreds of designs and manufacturers. These guns have
thousands of variations in design, style, size, and
intended use. Remember, originally they were created
to spray thick latex polymer or oil based paints, resins
and finishes in the furniture, automotive and airline
industries. To make it more complex there are also numerous
caps and nozzles for each gun. Typically in our industry
we use the "bottom" or "suction feed"
with a smaller plastic bottle and the appropriate cap
and nozzle to handle a less viscous water based solution.
To simplify this whole matter you need to buy from a
reputable dealer of spray tanning supplies and equipment.

Spray tanning has been used since the late 90's and was the result of innovation using the active self tanning ingredients in use in sunless tanning lotions for roughly 40 years but in a sprayable solution. The most effective active ingredient being DHA or Dihydroxyacetone which is a fermented glycerin.
Spray tanning is applied using HVLP (High Volume Low Pressure) systems and is not at all difficult to learn the techniques used can be learned by simply watching a DVD.
