I do not tan in natural sunlight, will I still achieve a result with Urban Tan?
Absolutely YES! This is the perfect solution for those people who want a tan but do not tan in UV light.
Will my skin go Orange?
Absolutely NOT!

Urban Tan offers you 4 colour options to prevent this. The colours can also be mixed to accommodate your needs. Your trained therapist will advise you.
Will my skin smell after the application?
DHA and Erythrulose reacts with the proteins in the skin to developer a tanned result. Some people notice a slightly biscuity smell as the products developer on the skin. This is normal and will fade away quickly. Personalising your tan with one of the six Aroma Zone fragrance will help disguise this.

All Urban Tan solutions are safe to use on the skin. However, if you have ever experienced an allergic reaction to any other self-tanning product, a patch test is recommended 24 hours prior to your appointment. If you experience any reaction at this point, you should not have the application.
