The incidence and mortality of skin cancer have increased exponentially during the past several decades, and every year the figure mounts. In an effort to help assist ongoing research to this deadly and growing epidemic, MOON Tans, Inc., a Colorado based company, has announced it will donate 5% of it’s unique, one-of-a-kind Jewelry purchases to The Skin Cancer Foundation in the purchasers name. Just as each person is unique, so is each piece of our jewelry – representing beautiful custom pieces from extremely talented artisans.

We chose the The Skin Cancer Foundation, states Linda Dillon, President and Founder of MOON Tans, Inc., because it is the only National and International organization that is concerned exclusively with the world's most common malignancy -- cancer of the skin.

In addition to the donation of proceeds to the Skin Cancer Foundation, MOON Tans, Inc. is an advocate to educate the general public on the damages of UV Rays. MOON Tans is the company responsible for the sunless tanning boom in Colorado and across the nation. Since April 2003 MOON Tans, Inc. has licensed over 70 locations nationally to-date and "is the fastest growing sunless airbrush tanning company in the country," adds Dillon. MOON Tans has been gaining National recognition in the sunless tanning industry - featured in several different local and national publications and television segments. In addition to a feature article in the February 2004 Business Style Section of Women’s Edition Magazine, 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. The Denver Post “The Scene” Section featured “You Don’t Have to Broil in Oil for a bronze glow” in June 2003, and WB Channel 2 aired a 4-minute segment demonstrating the Airbrush Tanning Technique of MOON Tans in May 2003.

What has prompted this revolutionary technique to tanning? “The general population is becoming increasingly aware of the damage of any kind of UV Rays – and we all know that exposing our skin to these kind of damaging effects potentially increases the risk of skin cancer” says Dillon.

“The excitement about airbrush tanning has been astounding and contagious because until recently we didn’t have a good alternative to spending time in a tanning bed or under the damaging rays of the sun to obtain that healthy golden glow.” adds Dillon.

MOON Tans has taken this incredible new trend to a new level. How can you possible get a flawless tan? “It’s simple really” says Dillon. The "MOON Mist" tanning solution is applied to the clients' skin with an airbrush. 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." The client's comfort level with the technician and salon policy usually dictates what to/not to wear while being tanned.

Bleu salon owner Carrie Hanson has had skin cancer and was elated to offer MOON Tans Sunless Airbrush Tanning in her salon in Wheat Ridge. Carrie was self conscious of her scars from skin cancer and for the first time – after having a MOON Tan, was confident to wear a strapless dress. “Skin Cancer is a very personal issue for me – and by offering this service it gave me something I had been missing - the opportunity to look healthy with a very natural color. It was the first time I have been tan in years, and I felt and looked GREAT!” says Hansen.

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 over 30,000 clients with unsurpassed quality, consistency and effectiveness. "We have produced a formula that provides the client with the natural glow of spending time in the sun –without any damage or the streaks and orange hue that is often found when using over the counter self tanners” says Dillon.

Many ingredients are the same in both the over-the-counter self tanning lotions and the airbrush tanning solution; the active ingredient being DHA, a natural derivative of sugar, creates a chemical reaction with the amino acids in the skin providing the pigment of the skin to darken. DHA is safe; it has been tested and approved by the FDA for over 30 years. As recent press has indicated however, DHA has not been approved for inhalation. Because the airbrush tanning process isn’t in a confined area, as are the booth applications, our product has very little overspray leaving inhalation a non issue.

One session takes about 15 minutes for the technician to apply and the solution dries almost instantly 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”.
