I recently read an interesting piece in WellandGoodNYC questioning the safety of spray tanning on account of the ingredients used. It seems the safer alternative to the sun might have some issues of its own with ingredients, mainly Dihydroxyacetone, which are not meant to be inhaled. Considering that it’s nearly impossible not to breathe in at least some of the spray, it’s surprising that more people aren’t asking what exactly they’re inhaling. What struck me the most about the article was the fact that so few spa employees had any idea what was in the spray tan formulas they’re using. Do you know what’s in your spa’s spray tan?
