In 2001, the first iTAN Sun Spray Spa opened its doors. It had a simple goal?to make clients feel and look lovely with professional tanning services. Today, the spa has more than 30 Southern California franchises, each offering a slightly different assortment of teeth whitening, tanning beds, spray-tanning booths, and self-serve spa offerings.
The Smart Tan?certified staff prioritizes keeping up with tanning technology by stocking state-of-the-art tanning beds such as the Sun Angel, which uses sensors to customize a blend of UVA and UVB rays, practically eliminating overexposure. Many beds come equipped with stereo sound systems, misters, and fans. Just down the hall from these beauty gadgets, Mystic and airbrush machines bronze limbs without UV rays, and self-administered spa treatments dispense relaxing red-light facials, infrared-heat bodywraps, and aqua massages.

Eli, a local produce broker, has connected hungry city dwellers with fresh fruits and veggies from his local farm for nearly 20 years. Each week, workers fill boxes with peppers, oranges, herbs, leafy greens, and avocados, all of which are naturally grown and free of waxy preservatives and that car-factory smell. Since all of the seasonal eats found in Eli’s farmers’ market stands and community-supported agriculture parcels come from his local farm, CSA subscribers shrink their carbon footprint by cutting out transport resources required for traditional grocery shipping and distribution.
