UV regulation

Tanning professionals are subject to the rules of Decree No. 2013-1261 of the Ministry of Health of 27/12/2013 and Article 9 of the Decree of 20/10/2014 which protects consumers.


Because you have to know that French regulations are the safest in the world.


Exposure to radiation from a tanning device can cause skin and eye cancers and is responsible for premature skin aging.

The existence of an artificial tanning regulation does not make it possible to eliminate the health risks incurred in the event of exposure, in particular the risk of cancer.

The use of these devices is prohibited at least 18 years. Wear the protective glasses provided.
