Frequently Asked Questions about Magic Tan

A Healthy Tan

You want a fast, beautiful, and streak-free tan. But you also want a safe and healthy tan. MagicTan’s UV free tanning experience is the answer.

Below are the answers to the most frequently-asked questions about UV-free tanning. If you have any other questions about the safety of UV free tanning, please contact us and we’ll get back to you quickly with the answer.

Is the MagicTan UV Free tanning process safe for consumers?

Yes, The solution has been thoroughly tested by Magic Tan – as well as independent laboratories. To date, MagicTan has produced more than a million UV free tanning sessions throughout the world with no documented reports of any adverse effects. The primary active ingredient in MagicTan solution is DHA, dihydroxyacetone.

What is DHA?

DHA is a naturally-occurring compound derived from vegetables such as beets or sugar cane. DHA causes a simple sugar-amino acid interaction that colors the outermost layer of the skin. Thanks to these findings, the first “self tanning” product was introduced in 1960. Since then, DHA has become the most popular ingredient in sunless tanning products.

Is DHA safe to use?

More than 30 years ago, the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) evaluated the safety and toxicology of DHA. It was approved for all topical skin applications as a color additive. Plus, DHA has been used as a color additive in numerous food and cosmetic products for several years.

Should I avoid contact with DHA in any way?

At the time of FDA evaluation, the only way to apply DHA was by hand via a lotion or cream form. Though DHA was completely approved for topical use on the skin, manufacturers never applied for approval of use on the eyes, nasal passages, or internally.

When applying DHA in a spray or mist form as found in the MagicTan spray booths or the handheld sunless tanning system, it may be difficult to avoid exposure to certain areas.

The FDA has suggested that when using DHA in a mist or aerosol form consumers should follow these simple safety measures:

  • Cover the area of the eye with Goggles, a MagicTan recommended product.
  • Protect the lips with a lip balm.
  • Use a nasal filter or a Mouth Guard provided at Our salons.
  • Avoid inhalation or ingestion of the product.

Does DHA turn the skin orange?

No! DHA formulations have improved dramatically over the last few years. Almost every sunless tanning product on the market today gives far superior results to its predecessors. Regular customer feedback from MagicTan customers reveals that our spray tanning technology provides a golden, natural-looking tan unparalleled in the UV free tanning industry.

The art of the perfect tan

It’s easy to get a great tan with Magic Tan!

Here are a few tips about sunless tanning to help you get that perfect result every time!

Tanning Techniques

  • For best results, Shower & exfoliate. Exfoliation smooths the natural ridges in your skin creating a much more even tan. Do not use an exfoliant that contains oils.
  • Do not apply deodorant, creams perfumes or lotions.
  • Prepare your skin. Imagine your skin is a very dry sponge (it is actually!). Pour water on a dry sponge and the water simply bounces off. The same thing happens with tanning solution.That is why MagicTan developed their special Prep Skin Conditioner. It moisturizes your skin and prepares it for the tanning solution. Prep Gel also neutralizes the pH balance of your skin. Prep Gel has been shown to make your tan as much as 30% darker as well as more consistent.
  • Make it last. Your tan should last for at least 5 days but remember that your skin recycles itself regularly. Long baths and showers, swimming, lying on a sandy beach, will all encourage your skin to exfoliate naturally, losing your tan in the process.
