Norvell is a sunless tanning solution made from all natural ingredients. This high quality spray solution produces a beautiful bronze tan in 5 minutes. It dries quickly, giving a streak free, natural looking “just off of the beach” tan, without the smell and color associated with most sunless tans. The principle tanning agent used in all self-tanning formulas is dihydroxyacetone (DHA). This ingredient does not produce a “real tan” by increasing the skin’s melanin levels; rather it creates a tanned appearance by developing a brown color on the surface of the skin.
The instant cosmetic bronzer may rub off on clothing or bed sheets. To minimize the chance of the solution transferring to clothing, we recommend that you wear loose-fitted, darker clothing after your spray session. Try to refrain from physical exertion that could result in sweating, until you shower and wash the bronzer off. The bronzer is water-soluble, so in most cases it will wash out of clothing.
Following a good skin care regimen before and after your spray tan will help the tan last longer. Exfoliating, shaving/waxing prior to your spray session and keeping skin moisturized afterwards are essential. Avoid applying lotions, creams or perfumes prior to your session. Even use deodorant and makeup sparingly.
Refrain from showering as long as possible, ideally 8 to 18 hours. As with all DHA products, sunless color begins showing development approximately 4 hours post application and continues to darken for up to 18 hours. The surface bronzer will wash away during the first shower. Please note that chlorine can cause premature fading of sunless results.
