What is Ortanic?

Ortanic specializes in sunless & UV Free airbrush tanning that encourages healthy lifestyle practices to promote skin cancer awareness and prevention. Ortanic's precision-based hand application is provided by a professional, licensed and trained Aesthetic Skin Consultant that will take you through our consultation process to find the perfect recipe for your skin type, tone, and desires. Our contouring airbrush process then personalizes your tan just for you, giving you flawless, natural-looking results that will make you wonder why you ever sat out in the sun.


What is an Air Brush Tan?

It’s the most realistic looking sunless tan. The results are an even, natural, flawless, healthy, contoured tan, which lasts about 7-10 days. Our system eliminates odor, streaks, orange hands and feet, blotchy patches and dirty looking knees, elbows, and nail beds.


How does it work?

Our licensed Aesthetic Skin Consultants will apply a custom blended recipe onto your body. The amino acids on your skin's surface will respond naturally to the active ingredient dihydroxyacetone (DHA) and other complementing ingredients to produce the most beautiful sunless tan you've ever seen. Results are immediate but will continue to develop over 6-8 hours.


Is it Safe?

Yes. The active ingredient in most sunless tanning products is known as dihydroxyacetone (DHA). DHA is a simple non-toxic sugar, which gained FDA approval 1973. It is often derived from plant sources such as sugar beets and sugar cane. When applied to the skin, DHA penetrates only the top layer of skin, and does not absorb into the body or bloodstream.


Will it turn me orange?

Absolutely not. People turn orange when the solutions applied to their skin contain too high of a concentration of DHA for their skin type (which comes from a lack of adequate training and execution by a technician), along with solutions that contain inferior quality DHA and other chemicals that should not be applied to the skin.


How long does it last?

The average result is 7-10 days but there are factors such as skin type, fitness and lifestyle activities, skin products, and how well you maintain your tan that can cause results to vary. With our affordable monthly lifestyle plans and products, you can maintain a perfect tan all year long with out breaking the bank or risk exposing your skin to harmful the effects of UV exposure.


How long does it take to apply?

Your initial consultation will take 30 minutes to evaluate your skin type and develop a recipe that’s been blended just for you. After that, an average session takes only about 10 to 20 minutes to apply. Our system and technology combine speed and accuracy so incredibly well that you will get a perfect tan in no time.


What do I, or, don’t I wear?

Attire for an Ortanic session is truly whatever you are comfortable with, even going topless. One exception is that we cannot allow full lower body nudity due to liability and safety precautions. But, please do not worry; our Aesthetic Skin Consultants can do many things to minimize your tan lines. Our goal is to manage your level of comfort while maintaining the utmost in professionalism, making it a pleasant experience for every client. After the session, Ortanic recommends that you wear loose fitting, dark, cotton clothing as DHA can react to nylon, silk, and wool. These fabrics along with bra’s and sports bra’s should not be worn during or immediately following your custom airbrush tanning session.


Will it leave behind a mess?

No. Due to the state of the art equipment there is very little over-spray. Additionally, each of our Aesthetic Skin Consultants are equipped with a standing tent for off-site events that contains all of spraying activity while custom airbrushing each client.


Will this product rub off on my sheets or clothing?

It can happen on rare occasions. Our solutions dry quickly and are water-based so it can easily be washed in a normal cycle. For this reason, we recommend wearing dark, cotton clothing, and avoiding synthetic fibers.


What if I am pregnant or nursing?

Simple. We will forward a request to your physician to sign. Once approved by your doctor we will be happy to give that healthy glow.


How do I look great for my wedding day?

By scheduling your Ortanic Airbrush treatment 24-48 hours prior to your big day. (along with the entire wedding party).


Does this treatment work for men?

Ortanic was designed to be the perfect solution for everyone. Our state of the art, medical grade airbrush system works just the same on men as it does on women. So regardless of body hair, we will give you the results you want. Our male clients especially like the discreet nature of our service that allows them to avoid the uncomfortable feeling of being in a tanning salon.


Does an Ortanic tan provide protection from the sun?

Unfortunately no. At this time our solution does not provide any SPF protection. Our service provides our clients with a UV free alternative, which should be supplemented with the appropriate SPF protection containing either zinc oxide or titanium dioxide both offering a broad spectrum of protection from both the UVB and UVA ray.
