About Us


Lisa Barnett, the Brand Manager and creator of Urban Tan, has over a decade of experience in the sunless tanning market and wanted to create a spray tan that would be natural and bespoke.

Her drive, determination and passion to create a totally natural, professional, odourless sunless product was finally achieved with the launch of Urban Tan in 2007. Lisa had an obsession for tanning both as a therapist and a consumer and made Urban Tan a personalised, natural looking spray tan with four different colours that can be blended and tailor made for each client. Lisa also wanted to make a fragrance free tan where the consumer could add their own mood enhancing aromas. This became a successful venture with the original formation of the Urban Tan Spray Tan solutions, spray systems, start-up kits, training and marketing for mobile and salon therapists.

As well as the Urban Tan spray tan solutions we have urban Tan Aroma Zone Fragrances, Urban Glitz sprays which are final finishing touch, glitter sprays, Black Velvet cosmetic bronzer drops to increase cosmetic bronzing levels and Ultra Boost for DHA intensification. As well as these tanning products we also have Urban Tan Classic Turbo Spray System, Urban Tan Pro Turbo Spray System, Urban Tan Extraction System, Portable Overspray Extraction System and a pop-up spray cubicle.

Since its launch, Urban Tan has been a successful spray tan product for the sunless tanning market and is popular in the UK and Europe with a growing database. Featured as the tan of choice on programmes such as Dancing on Ice and Strictly Come Dancing and used as the natural tan choice by celebrities such as Paris Hilton, there is a celeb and media fan base. Urban Tan has also been voted Best Scented Tan by Elle Magazine and Best Fragranced Tan by Hello Magazine.

We recognise that no matter how great the spray solution, you must apply it correctly to deliver the perfect tan. Therefore we offer a range of excellent training options. Full spray training (including Body Contouring with a Caddy purchase) with certification is available through us as it is required to obtain insurance, whether you are a mobile operator or a salon. We have regional training days that take place throughout the UK or one of our consultants can train you in your own salon or at your home for a one-off flat fee.

We also offer marketing support and materials to help you with your business. In our range of publicity products we have posters, window stickers, customer info leaflets, appointment cards, client profile pads, Urban Tan T-shirts and vests and an Urban Tan accessories bag.

Such is the popularity of Urban Tan’s range, that an exciting new retail range is also being launched for the end of 2012 so clients can now take their salon professional experience home and maintain their results. Look out for our new products coming by liking or following us on our social media.
