We, at Skies Azul, value quality both in service and products. That's why we chose an organic tanning sunless solution such as AVIVA.
Organic Tan FAQ
Aviva Labs is a spinoff of a biotech company. The AVIVA solutions are formulated specifically to target the high standards dermatologists would seek. Most competitors' solutions contain 25-32 ingredients, some even 40 ingredients. Aviva Labs' formula contains just 13 ingredients.
Because AVIVA have the world's healthiest spray tan solution, more dermatology clinics choose them over any other sunless brand. Aviva Lab's company motto is "Beauty Today. Health for Life."
Why is it important to have an Oil-Free formula?
Oil (usually Aloe Vera) is used in most competitors' sunless tanning formulas but not ours. Aloe is a fantastic moisturizer and, though, beneficial in other cosmetics and skincare products, Aloe Vera has many negative side effects when used in sunless tanners. Oil can dramatically slow drying times, clog pores and HVLP spray guns, plus stain clothes and bed sheets. Aviva Labs does NOT use Aloe Vera in the sunless tanners. Instead, they developed a unique, new product that is water-based (oil-free) rather than Aloe Vera-based (oil-based.) Aviva Labs' solution is highly moisturizing, yet it dries in seconds, rather than minutes like Aloe Vera-based solutions.
Why is it important to have an Alcohol-Free formula?
Alcohol is usually added into oil-based (Aloe Vera) solutions to speed up the long drying times. Alcohol is very drying to the skin and can cause irritation. Furthermore, alcohol intensifies degradation of DHA and thus shortens the shelf life of the product.
Why is it important to have a Fragrance-Free formula?
Fragrance is the #1 cause of allergic reactions. Most sunless solutions have almost overpowering fruity or flowery smells. Their other ingredients smell so strong that lots of fragrance must be used to mask the chemicals. AVIVA spent much more time developing products at the beginning to find the best quality, most expensive ingredients that have the least scent, so that the solutions have no smell and don't need fragrance.
Why is it important to have an Erythrulose-Free spray tan solution?
They never ever use Erythrulose in their products. It's used in about 90% of competitors' products. They claim that, similar to DHA, Erythrulose causes the tan to look “better, darker, last longer, etc.” Not only is the performance of Erythrulose negligible, but Erythrulose is not FDA-approved. This doesn't necessarily mean it is unsafe, but until it is approved we will not touch it for our products.
