Kudos to Australia for putting safety first! Australia has banned tanning beds in an effort to prevent the 80% of cancer diagnoses the beds are responsible for. Read below for more details:
Australia is to ban all commercial sunbeds in a bid to slash skin cancer rates. Every state has now either banned or is planning to outlaw commercial sunbeds due to the country having some of the highest skin cancer rates in the world. The condition is responsible for more than 2,000 deaths and 80 per cent of all new cancer diagnoses.
Kona Tanning Company’s offices quickly went into overdrive as orders flooded in, from spray tanners, aestheticians, salon and spa owners, makeup artists, and massage therapists, all looking for the next best thing to a UV tan. It was easy to direct customers to the Kona Tanning House Blend, used by Kona Katie for years on her Victoria’s Secret clients.
New spray tanners are in luck, as The Art of Airbrush Tanning eBook (written by Katie Quinn, Co-Founder and CEO of Kona Tanning Company, and Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show body makeup artist) launched this week, and is available for instant download. This is an introductory eBook training manual designed to teach both amateur and professional airbrush tanners the beautiful art of airbrush spray tanning.
This may just be the most perfect time to bring spray tanning to your customers, especially if you live in Australia.
