As you airbrush your way through the summer tanning season, you may run into expectant mothers who are concerned that sunless tanning products may pose health risks to their unborn children. Spray tans are actually very safe for pregnant women. In fact, they are much safer than tans gotten through exposure to UV radiation, which can lead to deadly melanomas.
Sunless tanning lotions use DHA (dihydroxyacetone) to temporarily color the skin. DHA is a naturally-occurring substance that works by “staining” outer dermal layers of the skin that eventually get sloughed off. Because it never penetrates into the bloodstream, it’s therefore considered safe for everyone including pregnant women
However, just to be cautious, when you talk to pregnant clients, you may want to suggest that they wait until after the first trimester to come in for an airbrush tanning session. And when they do come in, take extra care during the spray tan process to make sure that bodily orifices such as the eyes, nose, ears and mouth are covered. That way, you can rest assured that no DHA will accidentally finds its way into a client’s’ bloodstream.
During pregnancy, some women find that the increased level of hormones in their bodies make them more sensitive to smells. Our New Gorgeous tanning solutions do have a mild scent when they go on. But they become completely odorless after they dry which is usually in a matter of a few seconds.
