While the controversy surrounding the potential for harm after using DHA will be a mystery for some time to come here is what Mystic Says (forgive me if I'm fueling the fire):

WHAT HAPPENS IF I INHALE ANY OF THE MYSTIC TAN MIST?
While no one should purposely inhale or ingest the Mystic Tan mist, it is known that DHA (the active tanning ingredient) is a non-hazardous compound and causes no adverse reaction in moderate quantities when applied topically or even ingested. DHA has been used as a diet supplement in sports nutrition and is non-carcinogenic. Testing has further shown that DHA is less toxic than aspirin, caffeine and even common table salt. Based on our research, the maximum amount of DHA that could accidentally be ingested or breathed during a one minute Mystic Tan sunless tanning session would be .05 milligrams (equivalent to less than one grain of common table salt). Ingesting this minimal amount of DHA should pose no health risk to the consumer.

Makes me wonder. I'm not completely against mist-on in it's many forms, but, like asbestos, when we will find out that it is or isn't safe.
7. WHAT HAPPENS IF THE MYSTIC TAN MIST GETS IN MY EYES?
Mystic Tan tanning solution has been thoroughly tested by a third-party lab and the results showed no eye or skin irritation. Mystic Tan tanning solution has been used in over two million tanning sessions with no adverse reactions documented.

and yet..............

20. ARE THERE ANY OPTIONAL PRECAUTIONS I CAN USE WITH THE MYSTIC TAN BOOTH?
When applying DHA sunless products in a spray or mist, it may be difficult to avoid exposure to eyes, lips or guard against accidental inhalation of the tanning mist. Mystic Tan, Inc. and the FDA recommends that users cover the area of the eyes with standard UV tanning eyewear, protect the lips with lip balm and use a nose filter to protect membranes in the nasal passages, as well as avoid inhaling or ingesting the product.

Wow. SO it's NOT bad BUT the salon should provide MORE protection than going in a UV booth. Protection from what if it's safe?
