IS THE DHA IN SUNLESS SPRAY TANNING SOLUTION SAFE TO USE?
The FDA has approved DHA for external application to your skin. For misting

contact, inhalation or ingestion. To make sure you are completely protected,
the FDA suggests wearing protective eyewear, nose filters, lip balm, and
HAS ANYONE EVER HAD AN ALLERGIC REACTION TO SUNLESS SPRAY
Yes. If you’ve had previous allergic reactions to self-tanning lotions
or cosmetics, you should consult a health care professional before using
WHAT HAPPENS IF THE SUNLESS SPRAY TANNING SOLUTION GETS
IN MY EYES?
FDA recommends that DHA not be used in the eyes or surrounding area.
That is why we recommend using protective eyewear which can be supplied
by your salon. If you choose not to wear protective eyewear and your eyes feel
irritated, gently splash with water. If you have additional questions, consult
your health care provider.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I INHALE ANY OF THE SUNLESS SPRAY
FDA recommends that DHA not be inhaled. That is why we recommend using
nose filters which can be supplied by your salon. If you choose not to wear
nose filters and your nose feels irritated, consult your health care provider.
WHAT IS THE SUNLESS SPRAY TAN _DHA_ ADVISORY?
The FDA advises that users should avoid inhaling or ingesting DHA or letting
the spray get into your eyes. When using DHA-containing products as an
all-over spray or mist, it may be difficult to avoid exposure in a manner for
which DHA is not approved, including the area of the eyes, lips, or mucous
membrane, or internally.
The FDA recommends you take protective measures to eliminate eye contact,
inhalation or ingestion during your spray tan session, such as:
•Using protective eyewear
•Wearing nose filters
•Sealing lips with lip balm
•Using protective undergarments
DHA may permanently stain what you wear during the tanning session,
however the additive used in the bronzer is water-soluble and should wash out.
