How does the Norvell Sunless Tanning System work?

The Norvell Sunless Tanning System uses three different types of bronzers. The one that is visible when the tanner is sprayed is a cosmetic bronzer which gives the “just off the beach” look but will wash away and should stay on the skin at least 8 hours. The DHA bronzer initially has no visible effect but will begin to react with the skin in 2-4 hours eventually replacing the cosmetic tan as it washes off. The ingredient “Eyrthulose” is a third type of slow reacting bronzer, similar to DHA, which enhances your color and extends the life of your tan.

We now offer "Fast-Acting" Airbrush solution.
The full tan will develop in 1 to 3 hours. This is perfect for those that need a last minute tan or those who don't want to wait 8 hours to shower. It is recommended that you do not wait longer than 3 hours to shower with the fast-acting solution.
What is AirBrush Tanning?

AirBrush tanning (also called Sunless Tanning, Spray Tanning, or UV Free Tanning)
uses certain chemicals to darken the outer layer of your skin.
The key ingredients in the solution used at Ship Shape Tanning are:
DHA (DiHydroxyAcetone), a natural product derived from sugar cane
& Erythrulose, a natural product derived from red raspberries.

Airbrush Tanning

For those people that cannot, should not, do not have time, or do not want to tan, there is now an alternative to tanning with Ultra Violet light. UV-free Airbrush Tanning is a sunless tanning solution that is applied evenly, as a fine mist, by an experienced technician. Don’t confuse this with the spray-on booths that lack the control that a technician has to evenly spray your entire body or only the parts that you want tanned. This procedure will give you an amazingly natural looking tan, although  an Airbrush Tan does NOT provide any protection from sunburn, as a natural (UV) Tan does. Our Airbrush Tanning solution contains ingredients that are very good for the skin.

We take Airbrush Tanning very seriously

Because preparation is essential, we prefer not to take walk-in airbrush tans. We recommend an appointment with at least 24 hours notice. We will try to fit you in if it is an emergency, but cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. There is an extra charge to perform an Airbrush Tan after hours. We require a deposit of $10 when the appointment is made. If you fail to appear, or cancel with less than 24 hours notice, the deposit may be retained. We require that you follow the preparation list on this website, prior to & after  your Airbrush Tanning appointment.
