Is spray tanning worse for the environment than tanning beds?



  1. 0 Votes

    Overall, I would say no.  The main component to spray tanning is a chemical called DHA, which DOES have environmental impact.  However, there are measures in place to synthesize greener DHA by ArcaNatura.  I don’t think this synthetic DHA is being used in tanning sprays yet and I don’t know if it ever will be.


    Tanning beds, however, definitely have negative environmental impact.  The bulbs in tanning beds can easily lead to pollution if not disposed of properly, leaking toxic waste into the environment.  The biggest issue, though, is energy consumption.  An average tanning session of tanning can consume 5,400,000 watts or more.
