History of Spray Tanning
As far back as ancient Greek and Roman times, having a tan illustrated that you were working class and had to toil out in the open rather than being refined gentleman or lady of leisure. People, women in particular during these times would go to great lengths to avoid getting any sort of tan. All of this changed, however, in 1923, when fashion designer Coco Chanel returned from a holiday in France sporting a tan. Some say this was deliberate while others say she fell asleep in the sun. In either event, it caused a storm with women all over Europe hurrying to emulate the fashion icon. This was much more than a brief fad, the tanned look made people appear healthier and slimmer with whiter teeth and generally more attractive.
During the second world war, women were attempting to dye their skin brown using tea bags and shoe polish. Shortening skirts and the invention of the bikini in 1946 made the requirement for an all over tan even greater. Also, in 1946, General Electric began producing their Sun Kraft tanning lamps. The browning properties of DHA, the main active ingredient in spray tanning products, had been known about since the 1920s when German scientists first noticed that it turned their skin brown several hours after they got it on their hands. However, no one tool looked into the phenomenon until the 1950s when a researcher worked out how this ‘delayed browning’ took place and was deliberately used as a self-tanning agent. Spray tan booms today as a popular beauty treatment in salons.
