I had a customer ask me if tanning lotions expire. It left me totally stumped maybe someone knows the answer to this?? I have noticed when I've cleaned the cupboards lotions that have been there for at least 1 year seem to be more watery.

Lotions due expire...Most in about 3 years. Ask your distributor...better yet ask the manufacturer. The old Swedish Beauty only had a shelf life of 12 months. Cal Tan products usually go out three years. We manufactured our own lotion, with me working with a chemist and our's went approximately 3 years. Held very well. Pug

Most indoor tanning products have a shelf life of 18 to 24 months. Extremes in heat or cold will effect the products shelf life.

YESMost do have a shelf life. JA for example has a shorter shelf life, due to little or no preservatives. Like Greg said, temperature extremes will break products down much much faster. This is why lotion should never be left in a car.

we tell clients to toss them after a year bacteria gets in the lotions from your hands, it best to always use clean fresh lotion.
