Spray Tanning FAQ
Do Spraytanpro products contain perfume, parabens or alcohol?
No they do not :)
What do I do if the tan is less than perfect?
A less than perfect tan can be caused by all sorts of things. The free eBook includes a troubleshooting guide that goes through all problems as well as the solutions.
This all depends on your skin type. If you have dry skin it won't last if greasier skin - skin needs to be kept hydrated. It should last between 1 - 2 weeks.
How many tans will a bottle do?
Approx. 20 per Litre (50ml per body). Any then you will need to adjust your nozzle and/or your routine.
Can I apply it using a tanning glove?
It is a liquid tan that means it is quite runny. You can however use a mitt to apply it. Liquid tan will go a LOT further than mousse.
How long does it take to dry?
This depends on time of year/humidity, but usually you will need to allow 10 minutes before the client puts their clothes back on.
How long do you leave this spray tan to develop?
Usually between 1 and 6 hours.
Extreme Express develops in 30 minutes
Are Spraytanpro products suitable for vegans?
Yes, all Spraytanpro products are vegan.
In short DHA (Dihydroxyacetone) is the (plant derived) ingredient in self tanners which makes you go dark. The higher the % the darker you go.
Can Spraytanpro solutions be used with all tanning machines?
Yes, Spraytanpro Solutions are compatible with all types of spray tan equipment (including automated booths & hand application)
Is it oil based?
All Spraytanpro solutions are water-based
Is this tan nut free?
The product itself is nut-free. But as it is produced in a facility that also processes nuts it may contain nut traces.
Although the solution is free from perfume, parabens and alcohol we still recommend that a patch test is undertaken 24 hours before application. This is true of all tanning solutions.
Spraytanpro solutions do not contain Parabens (which is a preservative) so make sure you store it in a cool dark place (a fridge is ideal).

Problems with airbrushes
Many of the problems I hear about are easily rectified, here are a few of the most common problems I come across when talking to spray tanners:
Airbrushes need cleaning!
Your airbrush WILL clog up it is even more likely after the first few times it is used (as it can pull small pieces of plastic through in to the nozel).
Luckily this is dead simple to sort, I have even made a quick and simple video guide about how to clear it. You can watch it here
Compressors need to be away from the tanning area!
The compressor (the bit that makes the noise) needs to be well away from the airbrush and behind the spray tanner, If the compressor begins to leak tan this blog may help.
Don't forget to do this in an area with no soft furnishings.
Tents don't always go up first time.
The instructions say to fold towards your body from the top.
Sometimes though, it is easier to lay the tent flat, take hold of the bottom with your hands turned inwards and fold the bottom inwards. Having your hands in the 'finished' position really helps.
If that doesn't work, try folding from the top.
Sometimes too, if you turn the tent over and fold from the other side this can help. I know it's the same really but for some reason it does work.
If none of that makes sense I have a video that shows you how.
Tent a bit lopsided?
Sometimes the steel can get twisted in it's channel, try shaking it: stand facing the door of the tent, hold it firmly at each side and shake it, then put the tent down.
This should realign the wire in its casing.
Spray Tan contains an instant bronzer, so you can see where you have sprayed and the client feels like they have some colour when they leave. This colour bears no relation to the colour the tan will end up.
When the client showers this washes off, so you need to tell you customer that this will happen before you spray them, or they may believe that the whole tan is washing off.
That said you need to make sure clients haven't used any moisturiser or moisturising soap (particularly Dove) the oils in the moisturiser can act as a barrier, so prep prep prep!
Hose won't go on or blows off!
Different machines use different connectors, many use a bayonet fitting which can need a very firm (clockwise) twist the first time you connect it. Some hoses can come away from the connecting collars, if this happens you will need to screw the hose in to the colar, but it screws in ANTI-CLOCKWISE, this is the opposite way you would normally screw something in.
