A little known fact is that DHA (the active ingredient in spray tan) is actually colourless. Its the cosmetic bronzer (guide colour) that you first see when you get a spray tan. Without the bronzers the liquid would be clear and incredibly difficult to apply evenly. Most cosmetic bronzers are made by mixing together 3 primary colours, Red, Yellow and Blue (which together make the bronze colour) By manipulating the the blending ratio between these three colours, manufacturers are able to influence the ‘base’ or ‘guide’ colour.

Most spray tans are typically either Green or Red based but now there is Suntana V – a Violet based tan.

So why a Violet Base? – As the tan develops a Violet based product will counteract any yellow / orange undertones. Thats because violet is on the opposite side of the colour spectrum. When a darker tan is required, a violet based product will usually deliver the best results.

For a deeper darker, more exotic tan – choose Suntana V
