Rep Power: 0 YU-CAN-TAN-TOO is on a distinguished road
I had a client come in today and said that they have been itching for the last three days. This person is a male model, young aprox 17 - 18. He purchased a copper shot from doctor sun and tanned for 15 minutes. He said that the itching is so severe that he cannot sleep at night. He said that he did not have a rash or any bumps on his skin.

I thought that being winter, and taking into account that he has not tanned in a while that it was probably dry skin. This led me to recommend that they try a lotion to help relieve the itching. He stated that he tried lotion and that it did not help.

We use the Cal-Tan cleaning system to clean our beds and as I stated before he used the copper shot from Dr. Sun. Has anyone ran into something like this from these products or is it most likely what I suspect....dry skin.

What do you fellow tantalkers suggest for people that have this problem?

It is hard to tell from here. But I don't think it would be the cleaner, unless you have it mixed to strong.

I have had several clients in the past that react to the copper in products. This would be my first guess.

Second, it could be his skin reacting to the UV, which he hasn't been exposed to.

But I strongly suspect the copper.

Did you see the skin ?
Was the skin very dry? Patchy? Did he have a moisturizer he was using that you sold him to use after tanning?
Was he using a moisturizer you did not know about aftet his session?

Did he have on a fragrence? What does he shower with?

Theres a lot of factors we need to look at here ok...

What is in a "copper shot"? Tell me the properties in the "shot".
What type of skin does he have?
When was the last time he was exposed to UV?

Cal Care is not known to give a reaction...even if it is not 100% off the bed..
We personaly did testing of this.and out of 25 subjects not one had a reaction.. each had a different skin type...and different exposure to UV.with a little cal care on the acrylic.......
Did you mix the cal care to the exact instructions?

Give us a bit more info here if you can..
So we can try to figure this for you....

I did see his skin and it looked fine. It had no visible redness or rash. It was red where he had been itching.

He was using a suave lotion that he purchased at a local retail store. He said that he was using quite a bit.

The Dr. Sun Copper shot:

Pure L-Tyrosine + Amino Acids
Tropical Juice - Mango and Apricot
Hydrolyzed protein - Jojoba Oil
Soluble Collagen - Bee Pollen Oil
Vitamin A-B-C-E
Aloe Vera

Coffee Bean Extracts
Beta Carotine
Brown Sugar
Vainlla Bean
Bronzing Mica Powder
Natural Tea Extract
Sesame Oil
Golden Brown Honey

5% Copper Peptides

He has Skin Type 3a

He had not tanned in a few months he said before comming to the salon. This reaction occured on his second visit.

Of course we mixed the cal care to the instructions. Its fool proof. You just fill the bottle to the top of the label and add the cartdrige.

Thanks for the response, this is quite a mystery to us.

The copper shot could have been a bit strong for him if he hasnt tanned for awhile..
Also some people have a reaction to copper at a 5% this could have made him reactive...

It is hard to say what it might be.

If there was no redness or bumps you could see..but only patches where he scratched himself...it could have even been a reaction to a soap he used before UV exposure that he had still on his body.......

See if he has the reaction again if he uses a different product with no copper........

Keep us posted.....

I hooked him up with a good moisturizer and they said that it helped a lot. But after 3 1/2 to 4 days who knows if it was the lotion or if it just went away on its own. He used the copper shot again the day before yesterday. I know, I know...But I warned him that it might be the copper in the lotion that was making him itch. He said that he didn’t think that it was the copper. I have not heard back yet.[ This Message was edited by: YU-CAN-TAN-TOO on 2003-01-22 07:05 ]

In your listing of the ingredients in the Copper Shot, you mention "mica bronzing powder". My guess is the client is reacting to the mica (made from silica).

This is often used in shimmer products to produce the gleen effect. I have heard of customers complaining of similar symptoms after using certain products containing mica, although never to this degree. Of course, it is a minority of people who have this type of reaction. Those few just need to avoid products with mica in it.

Let us know how this progresses.

Ray I agree with the Mica.but it was so far down on the list I though it couldn't have caused such a blow out reaction..
but....maybe you are right......Mica can cause a reaction.....

Keep us posted.......

Nice to have you posting with us Ray...
Hope to hear more from you..

Ya know, it just could have been the "tanners itch" normally occurs between 2 - 5 sessions. Common with the skin adapting to the UV.

HOW TO TURN $6 INTO $6,000!!!!!!
IT'S ONLY $6, TRY IT!!!!

I found this on a bulletin board and decided to try it. A little
while back, I was browsing through newsgroups, just like you are now,
and came across an article similar to this that said you could make
thousands of dollars within weeks with only an initial investment of
$6.00! So I thought, Yeah right, this must be a scam,but
like most of us, I was curious, so I kept reading. Anyway, it said
that you send $1.00 to each of the 6 names and address stated in the
article. You then place your own name and address in the bottom of
the list at #6, and post the article in at least 200 newsgroups.
(There are thousands) No catch, that was it. So after thinking it
over, and talking to a few people first, I thought about trying it. I
figured: what have I got to lose except 6 stamps and $6.00,
right? Then I invested the measly $6.00. Well GUESS WHAT!!...
within 7 days, I started getting money in the mail! I was shocked! I
figured it would end soon, but the money just kept coming in. In my
first week, I made about $25.00. By the end of the second week I had
made a total of over $1,000.00! In the third week I had over
$10,000.00 and it's still growing. This is now my fourth week and I
have made a total of just over $42,000.00 and it's still coming in
rapidly. It's certainly worth $6.00, and 6 stamps, I have spent more
than that on the lottery!! Let me tell you how this works and most
importantly, why it works....Also, make sure you print a copy of this
article NOW, so you can get the information off of it as you need it.
I promise you that if you follow the directions exactly, that you
will start making more money than you thought possible by doing
something so easy!
Suggestion: Read this entire message carefully! (print it out or
download it.) Follow the simple directions and watch the money come in!
It's easy. It's legal. And, your investment is only $6.00 (Plus postage)

IMPORTANT: This is not a rip-off; it is not indecent; it is not
illegal; and it is virtually no risk - it really works!!!!
If all of the following instructions are adhered to, you will receive
extraordinary dividends.

Please follow these directions EXACTLY, and $50,000 or more can be
yours in 20 to 60 days. This program remains successful because of
the honesty and integrity of the participants. Please continue its
success by carefully adhering to the instructions.
You will now become part of the Mail Order business. In this business
your product is not solid and tangible, it's a service. You are in
the business of developing Mailing Lists. Many large corporations are
happy to pay big bucks for quality lists. However, the money made
from the mailing lists is secondary to the income which is made from
people like you and me asking to be included in that list.
Here are the 4 easy steps to success:

STEP 1: Get 6 separate pieces of paper and write the following on
each piece of paper;PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR MAILING LIST. Now
get 6 US $1.00 bills and place ONE inside EACH of the 6 pieces of
paper so the bill will not be seen through the envelope (to prevent
thievery). Next, place one paper in each of the 6 envelopes and seal
them. You should now have 6 sealed envelopes, each with a piece of
paper stating the above phrase, your name and address, and a $1.00
bill. What you are doing is creating a service. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY
LEGAL! You are requesting a legitimate service and you are paying for
it! Like most of us I was a little skeptical and a little worried
about the legal aspects of it all. So I checked it out with the U.S.
Post Office (1-800-725-2161) and they confirmed that it is indeed
legal! Mail the 6 envelopes to the following addresses:

#1) Jeff Millan
1113 N. 19
McAllen,TX 78501
#2) R. Overton
P.O. Box 18818
So. Lake Tahoe, CA 96151
#4) Stephanie Hicks
1283 Evening Canyon
Henderson NV 89014
#5) Romario Domengao
17924 SW 20th St..
Miramar, Fl 33029
#6)Jennifer Way
109 West Ave., #1033
San Marcos, TX 78666

STEP 2: Now take the #1 name off the list that you see above, move
the other names up (6 becomes 5, 5 becomes 4, etc...) and add YOUR
Name as number 6 on the list.

STEP 3: Change anything you need to, but try to keep this article as
close to original as possible. Now, post your amended article to at
least 200 newsgroups. (I think there are close to 24,000 groups) All
you need is 200, but remember, the more you post, the more money you make!
This is perfectly legal! If you have any doubts, refer to Title 18
Sec. 1302 & 1341 of the Postal lottery laws.
Keep a copy of these steps for yourself and, whenever you need money,
you can use it again, and again.

PLEASE REMEMBER that this program remains successful because of the
honesty and integrity of the participants and by their carefully
adhering to the directions. Look at it this way. If you are of
integrity, the program will continue and the money that so many
others have received will come your way.

NOTE: You may want to retain every name and address sent to you,
either on a computer or hard copy and keep the notes people send you.
This VERIFIES that you are truly providing a service. (Also, it might
be a good idea to wrap the $1 bill in dark paper to reduce the risk of mail theft.)

So, as each post is downloaded and the directions carefully followed,
six members will be reimbursed for their participation as a List
Developer with one dollar each. Your name will move up the list
geometrically so that when your name reaches the #1 position you will
be receiving thousands of dollars in CASH!!! What an opportunity for
only $6.00 ($1.00 for each of the first six people listed above) Send
it now, add your own name to the list and you're in business!

Step 1) You do not need to re-type this entire letter to do your own
posting. Simply put your cursor at the beginning of this letter and
drag your cursor to the bottom of this document, and select 'copy'
from the edit menu. This will copy the entire letter into the
computer's memory.

Step 2) Open a blank 'notepad' file and place your cursor at the top
of the blank page. From the 'edit' menu select 'paste'. This will
paste a copy of the letter into notepad so that you can add your name
to the list.

Step 3) Save your new notepad file as a .txt file. If
you want to do your postings in different settings, you'll always
have this file to go back to.

Step 4) Use Netscape or Internet explorer and try searching for
various newsgroups (on-line forums, message boards, chat sites,

Step 5) Visit these message boards and post this article as a new
message by highlighting the text of this letter and selecting paste
from the edit menu. Fill in the Subject, this will be the header that
everyone sees as they scroll through the list of postings in a
particular group, click the post message button. You're done with
your first one! Congratulations...THAT'S IT! All you have to do is
jump to different newsgroups and post away, after you get the hang of
it, it will take about 30 seconds for each newsgroup!
That's it! You will begin receiving money from around the world within days! You may eventually want to rent a P.O.Box due to the large amount of mail you
will receive. If
you wish to stay anonymous, you can invent a name to use, as long as
the postman will deliver it.

Now the WHY part:
Out of 200 postings, say I receive only 5 replies (a very low example). So then I made $5.00 with my name at #6 on the letter. Now, each of the 5 persons
who just sent me $1.00 make the MINIMUM 200
postings, each with my name at #5 and only 5 persons respond to each
of the original 5, that is another $25.00 for me, now those 25 each
make 200 MINIMUM posts with my name at #4 and only 5 replies each, I
will bring in an additional $125.00! Now, those 125 persons turn
around and post the MINIMUM 200 with my name at #3 and only receive 5
replies each, I will make an additional $626.00! OK, now here is the
fun part, each of those 625 persons post a MINIMUM 200 letters with
my name at #2 and they each only receive 5 replies, that just made me
$3,125.00!!! Those 3,125 persons will all deliver this message to 200
newsgroups with my name at #1 and if still 5 persons per 200
newsgroups react I will receive $15,625,00! With an original
investment of only $6.00! AMAZING! When your name is no longer on the
list, you just take the latest posting in the newsgroups, and send
out another $6.00 to names on the list, putting your name at number 6
again. And start posting again. The thing to remember is: do you
realize that thousands of people all over the world are joining the
internet and reading these articles everyday?, JUST LIKE YOU are
now!! So, can you afford $6.00 and see if it really works?? I think
so... People have said, &quote;what if the plan is played out and no
one sends you the money? So what! What are the chances of that
happening when there are tons of new honest users and new honest
people who are joining the internet and newsgroups everyday and are
willing to give it a try? Estimates are at 20,000 to 50,000 new
users, every day, with thousands of those joining the actual
Remember: play FAIRLY and HONESTLY and this will really
work. IT'S ONLY $6, TRY IT.
