Is my skin too light or dark for the solution?

There is no skin shade that will not work with the spray tanning solution and you can choose from a variety of color options, ranging from original to double dark. All of the Norvell spray tanning solutions result in a natural bronze color, giving you a healthy sun kissed tan.
Can I apply the Norvell spray tan solution myself?
Norvell spray tanning solution is intended for professional use only, so please do not apply it yourself. The spray tan solution is designed for use in all airbrush and HVLP spray tanning equipmentregardless of manufacturer, so all spray tan technicians should be able to use it. Technicians are encouraged to wear gloves and filtering masking during application and to thoroughly read the Norvell Sunless Technicians Manual prior to application.
What should I expect?
The DHA, an active ingredient in the solution that is derived from glycerin, interacts with the amino acids in the skin cells producing a color change. The DHA bronzer found in the Norvell spray tanning solution will begin to activate within 2-4 hours after application, producing a beautiful bronze tan. Full DHA results develop within 18-24 hours and should last approximately 5-7 days. Norvell also carries a one hour sunless tanning solution that contains a proprietary amino acid propulsion system to boost rapid tan development, allowing you to achieve a bronze color in an hour flat.
Will the solution stain my hair or clothes?
The solution may temporarily stain really light hair, so wearing a spray tanning cap is recommended. It may also stain wool, spandex, lycra, silks or other fine fabrics, but the solution is easily removed with regular machine wash. Wearing dark, loose clothing to your spray tanning session is encouraged.
Does it contain sunscreen?
Norvell spray tanning and airbrush tanning solution does not contain sunscreen, therefore it will not protect you against the sun’s rays. It is solely for cosmetic purposes and it recommended that users apply a high SPF sunscreen after the solution has fully developed and one shower has been taken.
