Question tan solutions for Canadians

Hi everyone;

I've been thinking about starting a mobile airbrush tanning business as a semi-retirement occupation. One of the many things I would like to know from Canadians is whether you can order tanning solutions/equipment from Canadian on-line distributers, or whether you have to order from the states.

As you know, the shipping costs from the states can be quite expensive.

How do you get around that (or do you)?

Re: tan solutions for Canadians

ofcourse you can order everything you would possibly need in that venture. Most of the articles will come from the states. Therefore you'll most likely need to set yourself up with a customs broker if you do not already have one. Business number and insurance. Remember if you want your business to succeed, you are the only one who can make it happen. Dont ever stop what youre doing. Get you r name out there, and do everything you can to meet people satisfaction.

Karen, not sure where you are in Canada but call liz from silver solarium, i went in last week and did airbrush tanning. its Norvel solution, best ever, no after smell at all. I have used many sunless solutions and booths and norvel is by far the best, great results and so easy to use. hope this helps.

Re: tan solutions for Canadians

I know this is an old post but maybe the info will help others. I know there are more options out there in Canada however the two that I have used are Silver Solarium and The Tanning Depot. Head Office for SS is in the GTA and for TD is Vancouver, I believe but they have a warehouse in the GTA.

I had spoken to some of the local tanning salons here and they used other companies I had never heard of located (in Canada) on the East Coast. I guess I was focussed on those offering spray tanning supplies specifically which were fairly limited. There is also Fernanda's in Mississauga which carries Fake Bake and T and Me Studio sells Aviva in Toronto and Barbarella distributes in Montreal.

It is amazing since I started over 3 years ago I look someone up and they are gone. : (
Happy Tanning!
