SunScape uses the very best solution on the market! The product I use is FDA approved to give you a safe and healthy tan. This water based solution contains the active ingredient DHA derived from sugar cane. The DHA reacts with the proteins in the outer layer of your skin to cause a natural reaction, producing a tan without damaging your skin. The DHA takes anywhere from 4 to 6 hours to visibly emerge into a golden brown tan. The product is fast drying without leaving a tacky feeling. To enhance the experience, the solution has a "raspberry almond" scent, and is enriched with aloe and vitamin E to nourish and hydrate your skin. Your tan will be streak free, with no "orange" color.
