Our Policies

All of the policies described below are in place to ensure the safety and quality of your Fabutan experience.

The 24-Hour Policy

At Fabutan, we believe in smart tanning. The 24-Hour Policy was established to help you maximize the benefit and minimize the risk of too much or too little UV exposure. When scheduling your next visit, please assist us by ensuring it has been at least 24 hours since your last tanning session.

Cancellation Policy

As a courtesy to all Fabutan customers, Fabutan requires a minimum of two hours notice to cancel or reschedule an appointment. Failure to do so will result in a $4 charge.

Age Requirements

For liability reasons, children under the age of 12 cannot be left unattended and must be accompanied at all times by a responsible adult.

Under no circumstances are children permitted in the tanning rooms.

Fabutan locations in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba; any person under 18 years of age is not permitted to use UV tanning equipment without a medical prescription.

Fabutan locations in Ontario; any person under 18 years of age is not permitted to use UV tanning equipment.

Indoor Tanning Oils & Lotions Only

Please ensure that your tanning lotions/oils are formulated for indoor tanning as some outdoor products:

  • May cause photosensitivity
  • May decrease tanning efficiency
  • May damage the acrylics on the tanning bed

A Fabutan CEO is always available to answer any questions you may have about the value of using specially formulated indoor tanning lotions. Do not hesitate to ask us!

Eye Protection is Essential

Although they may seem like a nuisance, the goggles worn while tanning serve a very important purpose; they protect your cornea and retina from UV light damage that can lead to cataracts. The skin that makes up your eyelids offers almost no protection against UV light, so it does not make a lot of sense to lie in a tanning bed without tanning goggles! The indoor tanning eyewear that Fabutan provides stops 99% of UVB light and 99.9% of UVA light, allowing only visible light through so you can see while you tan.

Not using proper eye protection may also result in short term effects such as tired and itchy eyes, headaches and loss of night vision. You should never be in a tanning bed without eye protection, and be sure to purchase your own pair of tanning goggles to avoid the risk of easily transmitted infections like pink-eye.
