In-the-know Angelenos enjoy sunless tanning without the harsh chemical ingredients and nasty stench at this Santa Monica salon.. In Short Just blocks from the beach in Santa Monica, this sunless tanning salon has a different approach to helping customers get their glow on. Jumping on the bandwagon of the recent nature craze, Chocolate Sun boasts bronzing without all of the unnatural dyes, chemicals and preservatives. The brainchild of owner Susie Hatton, this solution is both all-natural and organic, made of wild crafted botanicals, herbs and antioxidants, and it doesn't emit the unpleasant smell common in other sunless tanning products. The salon's pros blend the percentage of tanning ingredients used in a customer's treatment according to his or her skin tone to help ensure natural looking color. In partnership with a botanical chemist, Susie also created her own skincare product line called Flowers, which is made from natural blooms, herbs and essential oils.
