Barbicide- Are You Sanitizing??

We all know the importance of sanitizing, but the real question is whether or not you are doing everything you can to provide a clean and sanitary environment for your clients.  Barbicide, which is a germicidal, fungicidal, virucidal, and pseudomonacidal disinfectant, kills numerous pathogenic organisms.  It disinfects scissors, combs, brushes and salon surfaces.  It is safe for acrylic tanning beds/stainless steel/plastics.  And best of all?? Metals can be immersed for hours without rusting!

By using Barbicide you will display your understanding and commitment to using tools which have been disinfected minimizing all risk of cross infection from one client to the next.  Your clients will trust you more than ever and will never think twice about paying for your services!!

Take a look at our disinfectant products at Pure Spa Direct:

Barbicide® Disinfectant Concentrate / 64oz

King Research Barbicide Plus / 16 oz. - Tuberculocidal Disinfectant Concentrate - hospital-grade, EPA approved disinfectant

KING RESEARCH Barbicide Plus® / 16 oz.

GET CLEAN! STAY CLEAN!

Creating & Maintaining the Perfect Sunless Tan!

Summer is around the corner, and as the temperature is heating up, our clothes are becoming lighter.  We are showing more skin and want to look appealing in our tanks, skirts, and dresses. Sun and sun damage (as scarily shown in the left pic) is old news, and sunless tanning (as beautifully shown in the right pic) is all the new!  Every year at Pure Spa Direct, our Sunless Tanning clients, inquiries, and orders are growing dramatically.

Out with the Old...
...In with the New!
One of the most common inquires we receive is regarding the maintenance of the Sunless Tanning Equipment.  Like every other appliance in our world, wear and tear is normal with every day use.  Aside from using the best Sunless Solutions on the market by Pure Sunless and Extended Vacation, the key factor in "Sunless Tanning Excellence" is also the equipment.  Keeping your equipment up-to-date, and clean is imperative in creating that perfect sunless tan. So how do you best maintain your equipment?

See below for some answers to our most frequently asked questions:

1) How Often Should I Clean My Spray Gun?
  • It is important to clean your Spray Gun DAILY!  Many clients ask if the gun needs to be cleaned after each use, and while it is recommend, we suggest you clean the gun each time it is put to rest. If you do 1-2 tans a day (one in the morning and one in the afternoon) then yes, the gun must be cleaned after each use. The key factor to remember is anytime the gun is put to rest, it should be cleaned to ensure maximum results. 
2) How Do I Clean My Spray Gun?  (General Instructions for Cleaning MaxiMist Units - other units may vary)
Steps:
1) Disconnect the Spray Gun from the Air Hose 
2) CAREFULLY unscrew the Solution Cup. If there is left-over solution in the cup, either close the cup with a lid, or pour the remaining solution into a proper storage container.  *You may pour the extra solution back into it's original solution container, as long as it is done immediately!* 
3) Rinse the solution cup under running warm water until it is clean.
4) Fill the cup to 50ml (1-2 ounces) with warm water. Reconnect the spray gun to the air hose, and turn on the turbo unit. Direct the spray gun to a safe area and spray the clean water through the gun, until the cup is empty.
5) Turn off the turbine unit, disconnect the spray gun and unscrew the cup. Be sure to wipe all exposed areas dry.
*CAUTIONDo not submerge the spray gun under water. Do not rinse the tip and air cap while they're connected to the gun, as water may collect under the air the cap and plate, causing mineral buildup.
6) To clean the Solution Cup, unscrew the cup lid and remove the Air Cap Ring. Rinse the threads under warm running water, and then wipe down, till they are clean and dry.
7) Remove the Air Cap. Rinse it under warm running water, and wipe it down till it's clean and dry.
8) (if necessary) Remove the air distributor plate and rinse it under warm running water as well.
*To Re-install the three pieces, just reverse the removal procedure. 

**For Additional Maintenance (Recommended weekly):  
1) Remove the  Solution Nozzle  for rinsing. The Solution Nozzle  can be easily removed by placing the tip of an adjustable wrench or spanner on the two flat areas of the nozzle, and twist counter-clockwise to remove it.  *CAUTION:  There is a gasket (seal) around the thread of the solution nozzle, that must be re-installed correctly or leakage will occur!
2) The solution needle can also be removed for additional maintenance. To remove it, turn the solution flow screw counter-clockwise until it comes out of the spray gun.  *CAUTION:  Needles are very fragile! Be careful when removing the 'solution flow screw' as there is a small spring around the needle. Do not lose it. This is important to the operation of the spray gun. Set the spring aside and pull the trigger all the way back until you can grab the needle with your finger tips. Pull the needle out from the back of the spray gun. Once removed, rinse under warm running water, clean and dry it. Re-install by reversing the removal procedure.... Viola! Your spray gun should be perfectly clean and ready for the next use! 

2) How Often Should I Clean the Filter? And How Do I Do It? 
1) It is IMPORTANT to clean the filter weekly. This is important to allow your turbine motor to breathe freely, as a clogged/dirty filter will only cause the turbine to overheat and burn out prematurely.
2) To clean the filter (only applies to units with a removable filter), locate it, remove it, rinse it under warm water and simply replace it. *Hint- If your filter becomes damaged, just go to your local pet store, as you may replace it with aquarium or pond filter.  It will just need to be cut to the appropriate size.

3) When Should I Replace My Sunless Tanning Equipment?
1) Simple answer... when it stops working correctly.  By the time any of the units we carry stop working, you would have performed so many tanning services, you would know when something wasn't right.
2) Most of our equipment offers a one year warranty and we do sell replacement parts.

If you have any questions on any of our Sunless Tanning Equipment or would like to purchase replacement parts, just contact Pure Spa Direct Customer Service Today!

The Sunless Tan Lover!

The Moroccan Mineral Dark Tanning Lotion by Extended Vacation has changed my life, and it will change yours! Like every other girl, I always feel more confident and attractive when I have a tan. Before being introduced to the Moroccan Mineral Dark Tanning Lotion, not only was I was spending my money at tanning salons, but I was also damaging my skin. As a sun and beach lover, I would harm my body with the sun’s rays any chance I got. Now being in my late 20’s, the sun has become more of an enemy than a friend.

No matter how old or what gender you are, your skin always looks healthier and clothes always appear nicer on a tanned body. I have finally found a tanning product that I can use with confidence and get the tanned body I always want… whenever I want. With each application I feel like the Moroccan Mineral
Tanning Lotion was made for me because the color always develops so beautifully, but the truth is that it was made for everyone of all skin types.

To apply the most perfect tan, I highly recommend using the Moroccan Mineral 7 Piece Body Brush Set. With 7 brushes you can use a different size brush for each part of your body. Using the brushes makes the tanning process more fun-- consider it as painting or coloring in your own skin. The 3” Long Handle Flat Brush is great for the legs and back, and the 1 ½” Oval Body Brush is superior in tanning the hands and feet…which can be tricky areas! These brushes are great to tan yourself, your clients and your friends. Painting another is a very relaxing experience for the client especially with this set. The brushes are extremely soft and feel amazing on the skin. The best part is that after each use, with a little soap and water the brushes turn back to bright white, and ready for the next use! The cute carrying case is also a bonus! Why fry your skin when you could achieve an ideal sunless tan that looks just as natural without the sun? Happy Sunless Tanning!
