hello,

I am trying to educate myself on the tanning industry becaue I would like to expand my salon. I have asked this to numerous tanning places and no one can give me an answer.

What are the ingredient or ingredients that makes a tanning lotion tingle? Is it one or a multiple of things. This has really bothered me that the people around me cannot answer this question. Is it top secret or what

Thanks for all of your help

Usually it's Nicotinate, Methyl or Benzyl or both.

Lil, I found this site which lists most ingredients that can be found in tanning lotions and what these ingredients actually do (if anything at all!) Hope this helps!! http://yestheyrefake.net/tanning_lotion_ingredients.html

I'm not so sure of the validity of that site.

Why? Because I have seen the site before and don't believe the information there regarding indoor tanning is meant to provide a positive outlook on the industry. Pretty simple eh?

I don't see how listing ingredients in a lotion and what each one does is not positive. Some people would like to know what they are putting on their bodies...especially those with sensitive skin. I just read the ingredients (a-l anyway) and so far, I don't see them bashing indoor tanning...it is simply a list of what each ingredient is used for. I am sorry if you feel this creates a negative image towards tanning.

One page does not a great site make. Keep reading.

Ok Neon...I'll play along....was just trying to help Lil out since he himself said he wanted to gain some more industry knowledge. Here are a few more sites: http://www.beautyis.com/ingredients1.html ( can find ingredients in the scroll down menu...just look on the back of your lotion bottle, find that ingredient on the list...) http://www.tanutanning.com/ingredient_index.htm (isn't TanU on the boards somewhere...surely he/she/they wouldn't be posting here with bogus indredient lists) http://www.fashionindia.net/beauty/beauty_tips/beauty_ingrediants1.htm http://www.altmednetwork.net/skincare/skincare_ingredients.html http://www.makingcosmetics.com/homemade-cosmetics-soaps/a01-glossary-a-soapmaking.htm

Is this enough Neon, or shall I keep going? I really don't mind...I'm learning a lot reading about these ingredients, so I will continue if you feel I am still shedding a negative light on the industry that pays my bills.

You've missed the point, it was not the ingredient page that is the problem, it is the overall site and what it represents, it's a cosemetic surgery site.
