Frequently Asked Questions
SunFX developed their exclusive SunFX Pro Spray Tanning Systems to replace the ageing, messy and fiddly conventional air-brushing systems. We set the pattern and standard for all future tanning systems and still continue to lead the industry.
The SunFX Pro System incorporates a small and quiet electric turbine that emits a consistent flow of high velocity air. The SunFX Pro Spray Applicator is relaxing to hold and was designed to emit a constant flow of air this wraps around the tanning spray which effectively reduces salon over-spray and allows for a dry-as you-spray situation. The Award Winning SunFX Pro series systems are professionally designed spray tanning systems for beauty salons. The Australian designed spray tanning system was perfected after consultation within the beauty industry. SunFX Pro series systems are elegant, professional, efficient and incredible value for money.
Our exclusive SunFX Solution is regarded the world over as one of the finest. The unique combination of organic, natural and hypoallergenic Ingredients along with highly purified water (aqua) and the natural sugar derived approved cosmetic tanning agent DHA produce a truly remarkable tanning result. Our product is unique and clients can be assured that it contains no alcohol, oils, perfumes, parabens or artificial preservatives. Most salons can offer protection for the mucous membranes via nose plugs and eye protection should any clients feel a preference for the use of these.
SUNFX has been formulating and producing Tanning Solutions in Australia, Europe & America for a class leading 20 years.
Our aim is to continue to provide the best possible Organic and Natural Based Tanning Solutions on the world market.
However, while we have these amazing Tanning Solutions, why don’t say that we have a 100% Organic Spray Tan Solution like other manufacturers? The answer is found when you are prepared to dig a little deeper.
Dihydroxyacetone ( DHA ) the most widely used active ingredient in Spray Tanning today. It is manufactured from various natural sources including sugar beet and even rape seed. Many companies claim to offer 100% Organic DHA.
We have warned those companies several times (first email contact, terms and conditions and attestation) that the Organic Certification service is reserved for non-organic raw materials and the document that these companies claim is an organic certification is not an organic certificate.
In the attestation they and SunFX hold and that they claim to be an Organic Certificate-only appears, natural, vegetal and synthetic percentages. It doesn’t mention organic percentage or elements related with organic farming or organic certification. Hence why we wont claim to have a 100% Organic Spray Tan product.
We hope that you agree with the stance SunFX adopts, in our eyes, it would not be right to make claims that are not ethically right or that give the public a false sense of receiving something that they in fact can’t get.
We challenge you to ask companies for their Organic Certification and full ingredient listings.
Though our tans use organic, natural and hypoallergenic ingredients, SunFX still adopt the point of referring to your GP before the use of any spray tan during their pregnancy. However we can recommend creating a great tan using our SunFX SUMMER’S SECRET Gradual Tan.
Yes you do. SunFX tanning solution does not provide any useful protection against harmful UV rays. SunFX recommends the use of an approved SPF 30+ sunscreen 15 minutes prior to sun exposure and following the manufacturer’s instructions.
Your spray tan can be extended through the use of one of the following products: SunFX PH Cleansing Foam, Hydrating Lotion/Extender, SunFX Summers Secret or even extend and highlight the tan with our beautiful SunFX Body Shimmer. Order online or purchase them from your nearest professional SunFX salon. Please note: You should avoid excessive exposure to water and any form of exfoliation during the life of your spray tan.
The SunFX tan will start to develop straight away. For the best possible results, you should avoid the following within the first 3-8 hours or 2-5 hours for the Rapid Tans after application:
- Saunas / spas
- Physical exercise / sweating
- Tight fitting clothing
It is recommended that you wear loose and comfortable dark clothing after your spray tanning appointment. SunFX tanning solution, in most cases, will not stain clothing and any slight rub-off should come out in the wash. However, some staining may occur on some light coloured leather, acrylic or other sensitive fabrics.
SunFX recommends you cleanse and exfoliate your body with SunFX Body Polish and Sunfx Exfoliating Gloves. This will ensure the best possible result from your spray tan by eliminating the top layers of dry and dead skin. It is also best to avoid the use of deodorants and moisturisers and any other products that may inhibit the effectiveness of the Sunfx tanning solution.
Most people can expect their SunFX tan to last for up to 5 to 7 days depending upon your skin type and preparation. Some may even keep their tan for up to 10 days. Regular moisturising with one of our unique SunFX tan extenders will extend the tan’s life greatly.
SunFX will, on nearly all skin types, provide an impressive and natural looking tan. In fact, in many instances, the result can be superior to sun and solarium exposure.

see for yourself why people love SunFX
Fabulous color no patchiness. Exactly what I was looking for. Warm natural tone with just one coat. Love it!
I have had my SunFX Machine for years and years. Wouldn't swap it ever!
Easy to peel off after spray tan, the other kinds are way too sticky and leave a sticky residue on the bottom of client’s feet! Definitely recommend these!
