Is Self Tanner Harmful to My Health?

At this point in time, the various dangers associated with UV ray exposure and sun tanning are well-known. It has been proven that overexposure can cause awful health implications, such as premature wrinkles, dark spots, and cancer. As recent as 2014, the U.S. Surgeon General issued a formal warning about the dangers of sun tanning. This is because there has been nearly a 200% increase in fatal melanoma cases since 1973.

Doctors, scientists, and of course the Surgeon General, have all done an excellent job warning society of these dangers, which is why self-tanning has become such as widely sought-after alternative to tanning under the sun. In fact, it is projected that the self-tanning industry will hit 1 billion dollars by next year!

Self-Tanning Products Versus Spray Tanning

There are two types of self-tanning; you can opt for air brush spray tanning services or simply use a store-bought self-tanning lotion to apply yourself. But regardless of which version you choose, you are in safe and secure hands. And here’s a few reasons why:

The main ingredient in all self-tanning products, including spray tanning, is called DHA (dihydroxyacetone). And DHA has been approved for external use by the FDA since 1973! It is a chemical derived from glycerin that reacts with the amino acids in dead skin cells, causing them to change to the indicative “brown” color we call a tan.

Since DHA was approved by the Federal Drug Administration, there have been very few complaints or issues in regard to self-tanners. This can only mean that consumers have been using these products for several decades without any medical or negative health implications.

Self-tanning products are actually recommended by the leading skin care organization in the world, the America Academy of Dermatology (AAD). Over 17,000 real-life physicians within the the America Academy of Dermatology suggest using self-tanners as a safe alternative to sunbathing.

Even the Mayo Clinic, one of the most highly-respected medical organizations in the world, recommends the use of self-tanners as a safer alternative to sun tanning. Additional organizations within the industry that suggest the use of self-tanning products includes Skin Cancer Foundation and the American Medical Association.
