Long term UV tan effects

UV Tanning Banned for Minors?

Is organic spray tanning the solution?

We’ve all known the inevitable future of UV tanning will eventually come to an end. Much like the strict regulations put on the tobacco industry with the discovery it’s health laden issues, UV tanning is right in its wake. So when will the end come?

If it was up to Manhattan State Senator Brad Hoylman minors would be banned from UV tanning tomorrow. What would that mean for traditional tanning establishments? Already California and Texas, among several other states, have banned UV tanning for minors under 18 – Even with parental approval! With the approval of his bill New York would join the many states outlawing minor UV tanning due to extreme skin cancer risks.

Brad Holyman founded his claims based on a report issued by the World Health Organization that has proven a 15% increase in melanoma risk – That was only after using a UV tanning bed 1 time!

The ban by Holyman is further emphasized by lawsuits drawn by Attorney General Eric Schneiderman against two UV tanning companies regarding their misrepresentation of the effects of tanning in their beds.

So what’s the solution? The tanning market is a $3 billion dollar industry that has seen amazing growth in the last three years. Spray tanning will inevitably be the preferred tanning solution with its ease of application and lack of health problems.
