9 things a dermatologist wants you to know about fake tan.... as cited on the internet (see link)
While doing my daily tanning research I came across this little article on net doctor and thought I would post on it. While everything written is true I found the paragraph on oils not to be true, however thats not to say that it isn't for someone else. We are all different with different biologies and skin types but for at least 10 years Ive been using a coconut oil and Sweet Almond oil and have not found this to be true.
When it come to organic tanning they are only talking about the actual stuff that makes you brown, but if the product is organic I feel that has to be better than lets say organic DHA (the brown stuff) mixed with other chemical stuff ie: cellulite busters, hydrating properties etc , In my humble opinion IMHO less is more and if it is derived from a natural source then im in. A few years back I remember a well know brand having to recall one if its tanning solutions from the market as customers were having anaphylactic allergies from a nut oil being added to help smooth the skin . Less is more people.
And finally there has been no proof that inhaling DHA is harmful it is all just speculation and spraytanning has been around for over 15 years now and unfortunately it was tested on rats and mice extensively in the lab (makes me sick to think about this) but they sprayed them, they put DHA directly onto their skin and eyes and they made them inhale concentrated amounts (how horrific) and nothing happened to them. After they extirpate them they found no cell / DNA change to any of them. Now being Vegan I dont really think we can associate a human to an animal or its cells but I do think if no harm (apart from the evil scientist who thought they were doing humanity a service) came to any of the animals and that it has been around for over 40 years (like botox) then surely we would know by now if it was poisonous. My personal belief is that following a diesel truck for 10 mins with your windows down is far more carcinogenic than a few spray tans.
