LET’S BE CLEAR ABOUT ONE THING. 0.3 COMPLIANCE IS A REGULATORY REQUIREMENT, IT’S NOT AN OPTION. 

We HAVE AT FLAMINGO BAY TANNING STUDIO HAVE ALREADY MADE THE MOVE TO 0.3 COMPLIANCE VOLUNTARILY NOT THROUGH TRADING STANDARDS ENFORCEMENT. 

 

HOW DOES 0.3 AFFECT TANNING? 

The key message about a 0.3 tanning session is that the risk of burning is dramatically reduced.  As you know, burning or over-exposure must always be avoided, so this is a significant safety point for your existing and potential customers. 

The tanning effect of a 0.3 session will be the same as the Mediterranean mid-day summer sun. 

The tanning result will, however, be a deeper, longer-lasting tan that is kinder to your customers’ skin. 

For the majority of sunbeds, 0.3 tanning represents a reduction in UV output. In practical terms, it will generally require a minimum tanning session time of 10 minutes. This will of course vary from sunbed to sunbed. 

The feedback from TSA operator members who have already converted to 0.3, typically show that the maximum additional time clients take is 6 minutes but in most cases, clients are increasing their regular tanning time by 3 minutes and see equally good results.
