Are Spray Tans during Pregnancy even safe? The active bronzing ingredient in Tanning solutions is dihydroxyacetone or DHA.
This non-toxic chemical reacts with the outer layer of your skin to give it that gorgeous tan you know and love.
So is it safe to spray tan during pregnancy?
Testing indicates it doesn’t penetrate other layers of your skin or enter your bloodstream, therefore it’s safe for you to have a spray tan whilst pregnant.
We recommend anyone with sensitive skin should do a patch test which we can do 24-48 hours prior to your Spray Tan. Appointment as skin becomes more sensitive during pregnancy due to an increase in hormones.
We infuse our tan formula with natural and organic plant oils like Aloe Vera.
There’s no evidence to suggest using at home fake tan when pregnant isn’t safe, but always patch test to make sure you won’t have an allergic reaction.
We’ve found that many women are happy to have spray tans during pregnancy.
We always recommend seeking permission from your doctor first, especially being if you’re having a tan in your first trimester of pregnancy.
Unlike some brands, we’re open about the organic and naturally derived ingredients in our spray tan.
With this in mind, it’s easy for you to seek medical advice about what’s in our formula and we’d recommend you do so if you have any concerns at all.
