Frequently Asked Questions


Q: Can pregnant women use SunFX? 

Though our tans use organic, natural and hypoallergenic ingredients, SunFX still adopt the point of referring to your GP before the use of any spray tan during their pregnancy. However we can recommend creating a great tan using our SunFX Summer Secret Gradual Tan!

Q: Do I still need to apply a sunscreen? 

Yes you do. SunFX tanning solution does not provide any useful protection against harmful UV rays. SunFX recommends the use of an approved SPF 30+ sunscreen 15 minutes prior to sun exposure.

Q: How do I extend the life of my tan?

Your spray tan can be extended through the use of one of the following products that contain DHA:  SunFX Summer Secret Gradual Tan, Foaming Mousse, Aerosol . To keep your skin hydrated try SunFX Body Collection - Hydrating Lotion and Foaming Cleanser.  Order online or purchase them from your nearest professional SunFX salon. Please note: You should avoid excessive exposure to water and any form of exfoliation during the life of your spray tan.

Q: What should I do after my tan has been applied?

The SunFX tan will start to develop straight away. For the best possible results, you should avoid the following within the first 3-8 hours or 2-5 hours for the Rapid Tans after application:

·         Water

·         Saunas / spas

·         Physical exercise / sweating

·         Swimming

·         Tight fitting clothing

Q: What should I wear to the salon?

It is recommended that you wear loose and comfortable dark clothing after your spray tanning appointment. Sunfx tanning solution, in most cases, will not stain clothing and any slight rub-off should come out in the wash. However, some staining may occur on some light coloured leather, acrylic or other sensitive fabrics.  

Q: How do I prepare for my SunFX tan?

SunFX recommends you cleanse and exfoliate your body. This will ensure the best possible result from your spray tan by eliminating the top layers of dry and dead skin. It is also best to avoid the use of deodorants and moisturisers and any other products that may inhibit the effectiveness of the SunFX tanning solution.

Q: How long will my SunFX tan last?

Most people can expect their SunFX tan to last for up to 5 to 7 days depending upon your skin type and preparation. Some may even keep their tan for up to 10 days. Regular moisturizing with one of our unique SunFX tan extenders will extend the tan’s life greatly.

Q: Is SunFX safe to use?

Our exclusive SunFX Solution is regarded the world over as one of the finest. The unique combination of organic, natural and hypoallergenic Ingredients along with highly purified water (aqua) and the natural sugar derived approved cosmetic tanning agent DHA produce a truly remarkable tanning result. Our product is unique and clients can be assured that it contains no alcohol, oils, perfumes, parabens or artificial preservatives. Most salons can offer protection for the mucous membranes via nose plugs and eye protection should any clients feel a preference for the use of these.

Q: How good are the SunFX results?

SunFX will, on nearly all skin types, provide an impressive and natural looking tan. In fact in many instances, the result can be superior to sun and solarium exposure.

Q: How do I get my SunFX tan?

It’s easy and simple to make an appointment at any SunFX salon. Or for a superb tan from home use one of  our SUMMER’S SECRET tan builders (lotion, mousse or aerosol)  and SunFX Hydrating Lotion.

Q: Why aren’t SunFX tanning solutions listed as Organic like many others claim? 

SunFX uses a unique blend of organic, natural and hypoallergenic ingredients. Though some tanning brands wish to list their solutions as organic, it is widely known and documented that the main active tanning ingredient DHA though a natural product can never be a organic product.  To date no DHA company in the world has ever achieved a organic certification for their product. Hence, SunFX believe we would be misleading our precious customers into thinking that we actually have a purely organic product where in fact we would not. Even if for instance all our other ingredients were in fact organic this would still not give us a 100% organic tanning solution. We believe in insuring 100% transparency in our ingredients listing and claims.
