We are frequently asked about the “base color” of solutions because of the number of different “base color” options offered throughout the industry. So what makes Endless Glow premixed bronzing formulation superior to other “base colors” offered?
Lets first talk about what actually “tans” your skin in sunless tanning products. It is the DHA in the product that reacts with the amino acids in each person’s skin to “dye” the top layer, and produce a variance of “tan tones.” It is both the quality of the DHA and the perfect amount of DHA applied to the skin that results in the best “tan.”
The “base color” or “bronzer” doesn’t actually affect the end result of an airbrush tan. Bronzer is added to the solution to provide a guide to the technician during the application process. The bronzing formula not only lends to an even application from the Tech, but as an added benefit, also gives a beautiful bronzed appearance . However, after the DHA has completed it’s processing time on the skin, you will then shower off any remaining bronzer in the shower leaving only the healthy “tan” produced by the DHA. Again, the effects of the beautiful color and lasting result of the airbrush tan directly relates to the quality of the DHA, amount applied, and other ingredients used in the formulation. All the E.G. solutions that you love so much only use the highest quality DHA and other ingredients available.
Other companies may offer multiple base colored bronzers giving the illusion that the bronzer formulation will give a different end result. This is just not the case since the bronzer is NOT what “gives the tan,” and it is actually washed down the drain only a few hours after application. These products come at a higher cost to you as a Tech with no real difference for the end result of the airbrush.
So, when you have a client asking for a specific “base color,” its important to educate them on the science behind airbrush tanning, and more specifically the bronzing formulation in solutions. It doesn’t mean their past technician’s were wrong, but it does mean that they have been mislead on the purpose of the “bronzing formula” in a solution. Unfortunately for those buying the “addition bronzers” to change the “base color,”, they are literally watching their hard earned money, rinse down the drain.
To sum this up, teach your client’s the quality, and amount of DHA applied to skin at one time are THE MOST important factors for a beautiful end result. The premixed bronzing formulation in our E.G. solutions reacts uniquely with amino acids in the skin to give the most desirable tone of bronze for each individual client while the DHA is processing. As a E.G. Tech you have the perfect “DHA to Bronzer” ratio for the application, and your clients will be completely satisfied with the end result of their sunless airbrush tan! It is definitely a win win for all!

“Organic” is all the rage right now. We want to take care of our bodies now more than ever!
Companies that claim to have “100% organic” solutions could be falsely advertising that claim. They think they can “get away” with saying their products are “organic” because one or more of the ingredients used in the formulation could actually be “organic.” For example, the DHA used in the Endless Glow Solution is derived from sugar cane and “organically grown,” therefore making it “organic.” However, in order for a tanning solution to be “100% organic” EVERY ingredient in the tanning solution would need to be derived from a plant source, and fall under the category of “organically grown.”
Solutions that have the label “USDA Organic” meet the minimum percentage of ingredients “organically grown,” and therefore can be labeled “organic.” But that doesn’t mean they are “100% organic.”
In order for tanning solution to be “100% organic” it can’t contain any ingredients to extend shelf life, no water, and no dyes (bronzers.) Meaning you would be using a less stable product with a shorter shelf life, and no bronzing color to guide your applications.
Endless Glow does not claim to be “100% organic”, however our DHA is “ECOCERT” and “organically grown.” In addition, the Endless Glow solutions contain many wonderful vitamins and added benefits that give an overall younger, healthier appearance. You’ll be nourishing your skin, receiving a beautiful and healthy glow, while still caring for your skin.

Welcome! We are excited for your interest and you are probably here because you didn’t realize there was a difference between spray tanning and airbrush tanning.
So lets talk about it!
Spray tanning is solution covering an area without the use of air, this can cause a person to feel very wet and uneven after the application is complete. Spray tans can be applied in a booth and by a person with equipment. Most people believe that if a person is applying the solution its an airbrush tan, this is wrong, you can get a spray tan from a person. Spray tans typically are applied quickly, and generally develop a rustic color. Because of the speedy application and the lack of air mixed with solution clients can also experience build up and fade harshly in those areas. Spray tans also require barrier creams because they are protecting from over application.
Airbrush Tanning is the combination of air and solution, creating a fine mist to allow a more detailed application. An airbrush application is always applied by a person with very specific equipment. Airbrush Tans generally give a more natural glow and allow customization, because of the customization/technique and the tanning solution mixed with air, your clients will NOT need barrier creams. While an airbrush tan may take a couple minutes longer than a spray tan technique the results are longer lasting, more beautiful, and leave little room for error. The technique and combination with air give the most natural looking tan.
Endless Glow teaches their technicians the concept of airbrush tanning because we pride ourselves in offering a luxury treatment at an affordable cost, while giving the most natural looking tan. Providing the perfect overall service and application is key to a successful business.
