“Yes” says plastic surgeon.
Recently reporter, Rachel Damgen sought out advice from plastic surgeon, Dr Audrey Klenke on the subject matter of spray tanning.
BronzedBerry is happy to report that we have ZERO chemicals in our products and solutions that Dr. Klenke warns about below.
Rachel’s Question: Do self-tanners or spray tans pose any health risks? Are there any chemicals or other ingredients I should avoid?
Dr’s Answer: Sunless tanning is the healthiest way to get that nice summer glow. However, you should be cautious of the product you use and how you use it. Sunless products are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration, so it’s up to you to pick a quality product. Ingredients you should avoid are alcohol, parabens, dyes, formaldehyde and any other harsh chemicals. Be sure to read the ingredients on any self-tanner you are considering buying, and don’t be afraid to ask your spray tan technician if you can take a look at the product he or she is using. Be especially cautious of formaldehyde, which may be listed under several different names such as DMDM, Formalin, Methanal, Methyl aldehyde, Methylene oxide, Morbicid acid and Oxymethylene.
