MOON Tans offers a safe, healthy alternative to traditional tanning with Sunless Airbrush Tanning.

Allure Magazine declares MOON Tans, Inc. one of the "Best Beauty Services and Exceptional Experts across the Country" in the October 2003 Five Star and Superstar Guide. And, with skin cancer continuously on the rise, Sunless Airbrush Tanning offers an effective, quick, and healthy alternative to spending time in a tanning bed or under the damaging rays of the sun.

Since April, 2003 MOON Tans, Inc has licensed over 39 locations in Colorado with an additional 15 operating nationally to-date. and "is the fastest growing sunless airbrush tanning company in the country," states Linda Dillon, owner and president. This Colorado-based Corporation offers the amazing new technology of Sunless Airbrush Tanning in a comprehensive business package to a variety of industries, including beauty salons, day spas and tanning salons, to name a few.

This revolutionary tan is delivered through an airbrush by a trained technician. The company has spent over a year and a half perfecting their tanning solution before introducing it to the market last spring. It has since proven to bronze their clients with unsurpassed quality, consistency and effectiveness. "If you don't have a solution that performs, you won't have a repeat clientele. We're in the business to support our salons and spas with the most effective and consistent solution on the market," says Dillon. The solution works just as self-tanning lotions do; the active ingredient being DHA, a natural derivative of sugar, works with the melanin in the skin. It has been tested for over 30 years and approved by the FDA.

The "MOON Mist" tanning solution is applied to the clients' skin with an airbrush. The client's comfort level with the technician usually dictates what they choose to/not to wear while being tanned. During the application, the MOON Mist Solution dries almost instantly; is odorless and provides a glowing, golden tan. Dillon also states that, "Because we care about the condition of our client's tan, we have developed our MOON Mist solution to rejuvenate the skin, leaving skin feeling smooth, silky and healthy. A growing number of our clients have previously had skin cancer and have been directed by their doctors to stay out of the sun completely. They are thrilled to have this tanning alternative."

One session takes about 30 minutes from start to finish and develops over a period of 6-8 hours. Two sessions are recommended to build a base tan, and once established, the tan will last anywhere from 7-10 days. MOON Tans doesn't dye the skin, it creates the same reaction the sun does, without all the harmful UV rays, "leaving the client with a very natural looking tan without the orange hue that is common with other self tanning lotions."

Linda Dillon is owner and president of MOON Tans, Inc. a Colorado company that offers complete sunless airbrush tanning systems, tanning solutions and related skin care products. For more information, please contact MOON Tans at 303-979-5901 or visit the web site at
