"There are 3 main components that affect the tanning process: UVA, UVB, and Oxygen. For example, the skin of African-Americans contains enough melanin to create a black or brown skin color, while the skin of Caucasians has less melanin and is therefore more pale in color. As the melanin migrates to the surface of the skin to protect the body from burning, it combines with oxygen and turns the darker color we call a “tan”. UVA is a longer ray that penetrates more deeply and slowly than UVB. The melanin in your skin absorbs the UVA rays, turning the pigment brown. On the other hand, UVB rays are short, intense waves of energy, and stimulate the melanocytes in the skin to produce the pigment we call melanin. Everyone has the same number of melanocytes in their body-about five million. But heredity dictates how much melanin your body's melanocytes can Research indicates a direct link between tanning and adequate oxygen levels in the skin. In fact, skin with lower oxygen levels will burn rather than tan. So, it seems obvious, that the more oxygen in the body and available to the skin to help produce melanin, the darker the tan, the longer it will last, and the less likely the skin will burn. Just as with a premium tan accelerator, increased oxygen will promote a 20% - 30% deeper and darker tan. Oxygen nourishes the skin, boosts circulation and opens pores which leads to deeper tanning penetration. Again, remember that Just as with a premium tan accelerator, increased oxygen will promote a 20% - 30% deeper and darker tan. Oxygen nourishes the skin, boosts circulation and opens pores which leads to deeper tanning penetration. Again, remember that the more melanin that is produced, the darker the tan.
