My eczema usually got horrible during the summer. So I'm assuming no.

First of all that said SOME studies so its inconclusive, also it was tested on some cells and organisms no where does it say human skin cells. Even animal testing has been shown to be extremely unreliable because the tests can show one thing on an animal and be completely different on a human subject. There is a chemical in Johnson baby shampoo that is a major cancer causer in HUMANS but they don't ban that. My point is that there is no conclusive research to ban it and if they went around banning all the shit that could possibly be harmful to.your health we would have very few cosmetic or hygiene products left.

Yay, which part? I am in FL so it is sort of hard for us to avoid the sun/beach/outdoor activities. We've had a weirdly colder winter and it is finally getting warmer.

Eh whatever. There's chemical in everything. That really wasn't the point. There are extreme and more harmful chemicals in spray tanners which is why they are banned FOR CHILDREN. I don't see the big deal. Maybe its because I am black and I have a natural melanin thing going on. :lol:

We are going to Jupiter and Stuart.
we were in Naples and Stuart for the week of Passover/Easter and we had some very cold, windy days. We are going back for a wedding this weekend.
This will be my 4th trip to FL this winter. It was hot and gorgeous during a Feb trip.
I love it there.

I'm pretty white, my kids are white, and I seriously still don't see the need for them to tan, spray or otherwise.



Like I said though, this is just commercial tanning, if someone is so fucked in the head that they think their 13 year old daughter needs a tan(or if they have a skin condition) they can still buy a tanning bed, you know? They aren't that expensive, certainly not as expensive in the big picture for habitual tanners.

That is true. Its a ban for minors to tan in commercial places but its not against the law so...people stop trippin!

You can't even complain until you've lived in the north of England. It's constantly grey except maybe a day of sun in summer. There's even still snow on the ground from 3 weeks ago because it hasn't become warm enough for it to melt.

You specifically said no research has been done. You were wrong.

Im not even saying its a huge deal I just think its really stupid. They don't ban shit that is proven to cause cancer but they are banning stuff that may or may not be harmful. It just makes me mad that they allow baby products to be made with proven cancer causing agents but "OMG no spray tans for teenagers!" because there is an inconclusive study that show it may harm cells and organisms not even people.
