All Magic Sun sunbeds are equipped with the latest, high quality 0.3 UV tubes which are compliant with the new EU regulations.
0.3 tanning is the best way to tan!
There is a regulation governing the maximum UV output of sunbeds. This is generally referred to as 0.3 and is approved by the EU and complies with all British and European consumer safety regulations. A 0.3 tanning session delivers the same tanning effect as the mid-day Mediterranean summer sun but without the risk of burning.
- your tan will be deeper and longer-lasting
- the tanning process is kinder to your skin
- the risk of over-exposure or burning is effectively eliminated
What is 0.3 and what does it mean?
0.3 is the name referring to the new ‘Low Output Limits’ that all sunbeds have to comply with. The law has changed and to protect the consumer all sunbeds should now be changed over and their erythmal dose reduced down to the level of 0.3w/m2 This is the ‘safe’ output level that is recognised across Europe and is covered under the EU Electrical Safety Regulations Directive that was passed in 2009.
Why do things have to change, I liked the sunbeds as they were?
Well, it is a legal requirement for all sunbeds to be of this output. In fact Trading Standards Officers can issue notices to salons to comply or in extreme circumstances they could close a salon for being ‘unsafe to use’.
Another salon I use has stronger sunbeds and I only need to go on for 6 minutes so it is cheaper than here!
You simply cannot compare 6 minutes on the old “stronger” sunbeds to 12 minutes on the new low output beds – IT IS NOT THE SAME TAN. The new 0.3 bed 12 minute tanning session is safer, will last longer as there are less of the burning rays and it will be a more natural colour. So it is a better quality tan and you won’t need to go on so often.
