The Evolution of the Perfect Tan


  • German scientists discover DHA (Dihydroxyacetone) as a skin-coloring agent.

  • This skin-coloring agent (DHA) appears commercially as an over the counter sunless tanner.

  • The Food and Drug Administration adds DHA to its list of approved cosmetic ingredients.

  • MagneTan technology debuts in an automated Mystic Tan booth. National media coverage creates explosive demand for the first Mystic Tan booth.

  • Mystic Tan breaks the 20 million tans mark.

    MagicTan® Corp and Mystic Tan®, the leading innovators of automated sunless tanning, join forces. The new organization adopts the name MT Industries, Inc. (MTI)

    New formulations and innovations in booth technology allow customers to personalize their sunless experience. This new formulation technology features a proprietary blend of paraben-free ingredients that deliver a superior, natural-looking tan. Mystic also added an odor control system that helps eliminate the DHA development reaction odor.

  • MT Industries changes its name to Sunless, Inc.

    Mystic Tan, the pioneer of professional automated sunless spray tans, and VersaSpa, the innovators in automated professional skin care combined with sunless tanning merged as MT Industries in 2009. “This joint venture has sparked and ignited revolutionary sunless technology that has changed – and will continue to change – the sunless tanning experience. By aligning Mystic Tan and VersaSpa we were able to get the best in the business to work together. The result has been a steady flow of technology advances that we are extremely proud of."
