Safe Tan 0.3 Compliant Lamps
So, what is the 0.3 sunbed lamp all about?
The new 0.3 law means from 25 cm a sunbed should not exceed the UVB pressure levels of that of the midday sun in the Mediterranean which happens to be 0.3 watts/m2 . The bottom line is, it is the LAW, its regarded as the safest option with lower melanoma risk and all sunbed companies must comply . How does it effect the performance and tanning ? Firstly, tanning is a 2 part process the UVB produces the melanin (but also burns). The UVA turns melanin brown (but does not burn ). So removing 70% of the UVB and pushing up the UVA means that the tanning takes a day or so longer to “kick in” and also you also need slightly longer sessions to achieve this (10-12 min). The good news is that it is much harder to burn and the end result is actually superior. The tan is in fact darker, deeper, longer lasting and looks more natural and the skin does not tend to dry out or itch. Also, 0.3 gives better results for tanning legs , which has always been a problem with home tanning. People must now understand that going red is not an indication that a sunbed is working. If your local salon is burning you after 6min or 9min then the chances are they are using non – compliant lamps and are breaking the law
