Information about the safety of Mist-On Tanning:

The active ingredient in our sunless tanning solution is DHA (dihydroxyacetone).  DHA is a natural fruit sugar refined from sugar beets and/or sugar cane.  DHA has been approved by the FDA as a safe and effective skin colorant for years.  In our system, the tanning solution is atomized and sprayed on tanners in a very fine mist.  The FDA is currently working on a study to approve DHA's safety from any incidental ingestion from spray tanning.  Until their report is complete, we recommend holding your breath and closing your eyes as the mist crosses your face (about 4-5 seconds).

A large number of our referrals come from dermatologists or other medical experts who recognize sunless tanning as a safe and effective alternative to UV-tanning.

The billion dollar UV-tanning industry makes a lot of claims about the safety of UV-tanning and "dangers" of alternatives.  The plain truth is, UV exposure is a known and proven cause of skin cancer.  We intend to stand with science and medicine and provide a healthy alternative to skin cancer, skin damage, and premature aging.

At Eclipse Sunless Tanning, we've done over 15,000 tans to date and have healthy happy customers and no related medical issues.

Who doesn't want to look good, but still be safe about it?
