Key Ingredients to Look for in a Quality Spray Tan


Posted November 8, 2020

Check out this week’s blog from Planet Beach spray & spa’s vendor partner, Norvell by Sunless Inc.!

A question many people ask is “Is spray tanning safe?” When you tan with Norvell, the answer is yes! Norvell spray tans are formulated with the best ingredients to give you the best tan.

Norvell starts by using Eco-Certified Dihydroxyacetone, or DHA. It’s the active ingredient found in most sunless tanning products, and it’s naturally derived from plants like beets or sugarcane. Norvell works with the world’s #1 supplier of DHA to ensure its purity and quality in all of our ingredients.

DHA is approved by the Food and Drug Administration for external application to the skin. The FDA recommends protective measures to make sure you don’t inhale, ingest, or get the spray in your eyes. This includes wearing protective eyewear, nose filters, earplugs, lip balm, and undergarments when spray tanning. Norvell supports these guidelines, and these items can be provided by your salon.

In addition to DHA, Norvell also uses Eco-Certified Erythrulose. Erythrulose is an active ingredient that takes longer to develop its full effect, giving an extra pop of color around 24 hours after tanning. Erythrulose works in combination with DHA to help your tan last longer.

Other natural ingredients in Norvell products include Glycerin, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, and Sorbitol. All of our products are paraben free, gluten free, cruelty free, sulfate free, nut allergy free and 100% vegan. They’re also non-comedogenic, meaning they won’t clog your pores so all products can be used on face and body!

With Norvell, you don’t have to worry whether spray tanning is safe. We only use premium, professional ingredients, test all products on ourselves, and only sell what we love!
