Are there any allergens in your spray solution that I should be concerned about?

If the spray booth at your salon is using Norvell iNTELLiSPRAY, you can be assured that Norvell formulates their spray tan solutions to be as natural as possible which helps eliminate many possible allergic reactions. If you have concerns of an allergic reaction, it is recommended to do a patch test on a small area of the skin.

Should I be concerned with inhaling sunless overspray, and how can I prevent inhalation?

The Norvell Auto Revolution's down-draft technology is designed to work with gravity, pulling over spray downward, limiting over-exposure to inhalation of sprayed solutions. Studies by the European Commission Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety have shown that limited inhalation of sunless spray solutions should cause no concern. If you are concerned, ask your salon for nose filters.

The FDA and Norvell proactively recommend the following for your spray tan session;

To minimize exposure to spray, it is recommended to where I protection, nose filters, lip balm and undergarments. Please request these items from your salon professional.

How should I prepare for my session?

Up to 24 hours before your session, we recommend using a mild body polish such as Norvell's Renewing Sunless Exfoliator. Any heavy exfoliation or oily scrubs should not be used 24 - 48 hours before your session.
For best sunless results of the skin should be clean of any barriers like moisturizer, sweat, perfume and makeup. You should use deodorant sparingly.

Should I use level 1, 2 or 3 for my spray tan?

You should choose a level based on how dark you would like your sunless tan to be;
Level 1: Great for fair skin tones and those who are seeking a natural glow
Level 2: Creates a darker tan, suitable for all skin tones
Level 3: For those seeking the darkest sunless tan

Will a sunless tan provide me with sun protection?

No. DHA does not build melanin in the skin as a sun tan does. DHA works with the amino acids and body oils found in the outer layer of skin to turn them tan. It is important to use an SPF when going outside to protect the skin from the sun's rays.

Does the spray solution have a bad smell?

All Norvell Sunless Spray Solutions are designed with special fragrances containing Odor Encapsulation Molecules that 'trap' and minimize common sunless smell.

What is the difference between 'bronzer' and 'no bronzer/clear' sprays?

Bronzer: Temporary cosmetic bronzers provide an immediate tan color while you're DHA sunless tan is developing. Your actual sunless tan will darken over the next 24 hours. You will see the temporary cosmetic color washing off your body during the first shower. This is completely normal. Your actual developed sunless tan will not wash away though it may appear slightly lighter in color after cosmetic bronzers are removed from the skin.
Special note: Temporary cosmetic bronzers may rub off on light-colored clothing and furnishings, but typically wash out of most items.
Clear or 'No Bronzer': Though you will not see any immediate cosmetic color, your sunless tan will begin to darken within 1 - 2 hours and will continue to do so up to 24 hours.

Do I need to towel off or rub the tanning solution into my skin after the session?

No. The spray tan solution will not drip or run on the body. There is virtually no stickiness or dry time once your session is complete.

How long will my spray tan last?

On average your tan should last up to 5 - 7 days. There are many factors that determine this length including how you prepare your skin and care for your skin after your tan.

How long should I wait to shower?

For your first shower, we recommend a warm (not hot) water rinse only – no soap. You may shower as soon as four hours; however, for best results we recommend waiting 8 - 24 hours. Showering prematurely may result in a lighter tan. The active sunless ingredient, DHA, continues to work with your skin for up to 24 hours. Waiting longer will give you a deeper longer lasting sunless tan.

How should I care for my tan after my session?

Wear dark, loose fitting clothing until your first shower when you wash the cosmetic bronzers off your skin. Avoid any water related activities such as: sweating, working out, showering, swimming, saunas, rain, massages, pedicures, manicures.
Long soaks in any body of water can prematurely Fade your tan. Keep skin thoroughly moisturize after your first shower, and throughout the life of your tan. Using a tan extending lotion such as Norvell Prolong will keep your sunless color looking fresh and vibrant.
