What is DHA?
Dihydoxyacetone (Dye-high-droxy-acentone) is derived from sugar cane and sugar beets; DHA for short, reacts with the skins amino acids and upper most exposed layer of skin.
Should I get standard or luxe solution?
The Standard Solution has an Aloe base Moisturizing formula. This will hydrate and nourish the skin as the spray tan develops. The Standard solutions are known for providing a longer lasting spray tan and a less noticeable fade because of their moisturizing benefits.
The Luxe, Quick Dry solution has an alcohol ingredient base. This alcohol provides you with a “lighter” feel, unlike the Aloe Vera which may feel heavy or “tacky.” Quick dry solutions allow clients to feel comfortable as the spray tan develops and dress immediately. Quick Dry solutions are ideal for client’s who do not like the heavy feel of moisturizing blends, those with oily skin, or those who do not like the feel of spray tans in general.
