Better Then Barrier Cream

Barrier Balm vs. Traditional Barrier Creams:

The Ultimate Guide for Pro Spray Tanning

Barrier Creams and The Tanning Experience

Every professional spray tanning artist uses a DHA block, or Barrier Cream, it’s designed to prevent the absorption of spray tanning solution.  

Why? Few areas of the body just don’t “look right” when tan, like the palms of the hands. In fact they turn orange very easily. Barrier creams are lotions designed to prevent uneven tanning and protect certain skin areas. 

Here are the answers to Google's most frequently asked questions regarding barrier creams.

What is the Barrier Cream for Spray Tanning?

Barrier creams are lotions or balms applied to the skin before spray tanning. Their primary purpose is to reduce the absorption of tanning solution in areas with thicker skin, like elbows and knees, ensuring an even tan. While they’re essential for a flawless finish, not all barrier products are created equal.

Do You Put Barrier Cream On Before or After Spray Tan?

Always before! Barrier creams, including the Barrier Balm, are applied before the spray tanning session. By creating a protective layer, they prevent excessive tanning solution absorption, guaranteeing an even, natural-looking tan.

What Can I Use as a Barrier Cream for Self Tanner?

It’s a perfect solution for at home sunless tanning junkies too! 

Apply to wrists, sun spots, damaged skin and ankles before using your favorite sunless tanner.

Apply sunless tanner right over top of Balm and you’ll be amazed at how those “problem areas” develop perfectly! 

So, what's the problem?

  • Creams are often misapplied and misused and it results in subpar tanning experience for clients. 
  • Cream bottles weigh a lot so it’s expensive to stock and ship.
  • Creams provide very little blocking of DHA and are not 100% effective.
  • Cream bottles are heavy and bulky and add to increase labor for mobile artists. 

Barrier Balm: For Sunless Tanning Experts

Enter Barrier Balm, the first ultra concentrated barrier cream alternative.

Unlike traditional thick creams, Barrier Balm is a natural blend of beeswax and grapeseed oil. It’s lightweight, making it ideal for precise application. The ultra-concentrated formula means that just one 300 mL bottle replaces a whole 32oz of conventional barrier cream!

It’s multi-functional. It can be used on nails, elbows, peeling skin, psoriasis and eczema. It’s designed to protect and heal the skin, without the need to be wiped off. 

Superior DHA blocking ability due to it creating a protective barrier that does not easily get absorbed. It’s perfect for age and sunspots too! 

Why switch to Balm instead?

While there are many products on the market, none quite compare to the Barrier Balm’s natural approach. Its beeswax and grapeseed oil composition not only serve as effective barriers but also provide antiseptic and healing properties. This balm is not just a tanning accessory; it’s a skin treatment. It’s beneficial for scrapes, eczema, psoriasis, and sun-damaged skin.
