Experts Speak Out on Sunlight

Indoor Sunbather’s RIGHTS

  • I have the right to use a sunbed; one that has been professionally cleaned and sanitized
  • I have the right to know my skin type
  • I have the right to a trained technician controlling my exposure time based on skin type and past sunbathing history
  • I have the right to protective eyewear that will help protect my eyes
  • I have the right to industry leading products to help me sunbathe responsibly and maintain my skin
  • I will not sunburn


We believe that sunlight is part of a healthy balanced lifestyle. Every living organism needs food, water and sunlight to sustain life. Too much or too little of any of these thing is not good for you. Suntanning indoors in a controlled environment allows consumers to tan responsibly and to their skin type to help prevent burning and overexposure. JCTA member salons are certified and trained operators that can help protect sunbathers and achieve the proper balance between a suntan, sunburn avoidance and natural vitamin D production.
