Product Description

No.12 Solution is designed for deep complexions and top-rated in summer months. This solution is also an excellent color for clients with medium skin tones who’ve developed a darker natural tan during summer time.

Tan Longevity: This Aloe Vera formula will help hydrate and nourish the skin to provide the ultimate lasting tan. Spray Tans using this solution will last 7-12 days (with proper care) before you notice significant fading.

Pro Tip – Clients can avoid spray tan fade by moisturizing their skin the days following their spray tan. Moisturizing with a tan extender one to two times a day is ideal.

Sjolie Solution № 12 is a OLIVE BASE Formula

What is an Olive based solution?

Solution undertones are affected by the cosmetic bronzer within the formula. These cosmetic bronzers act as a color guide for technicians during application as well as a temporary color for the customer as the tan develops. Most cosmetic bronzer will wash off in the shower; however, it does have a staining power. This tint is only temporary and will gradually fade. Olive(green) undertones work great to compliment cool-toned clients, this allows for a golden development without the orange strange look.

Additional info; How to get the most out of a spray tan:

  • Exfoliate 18-24 hours before the sunless session using a spa-grade exfoliator. Be sure to get shaving and pedicures out of the way during this time as well!
  • Shower at the recommended time. Showering prematurely or too late can affect the outcome
  • Hydrate your body-drink plenty of water and moisturize 1-2 times per day
  • Use a Tan Extender Lotion when your tan begins looking dull to improve your tan appearance


Clean and prep the body using the Sjolie pH Balancing Prep Spray and Barrier Cream. For a full-body tan, use 2 oz. to 3 oz. of solution and only apply 1-coat. The client should wait for 8-hours before rinsing and no longer than 24-hours. Do not use soaps or washes during the initial rinse. Soaps, lotions and other body products that can compromise the tan should be avoided for the duration of the tan

  1. Danielle

    I use this solution for almost all of my clients. There are a few that are too fair-skinned so I will use the 6. Otherwise solution 12 all the way!

  2. Merry

    I have used every tanning solution on the market and I have to say that this is the best! This product virtually has no scent and leaves a really nice golden bronze color.

  3. sally

    This is my favorite color by far. Works good, and provides a deep, dark tan! Do not use on super pale customers otherwise it might be too much color and the fading won’t be that great. Anyone with any type of base tan will love Solution 12.

  4. Cortney (verified owner)

    This color works great on so many clients! I use it on plenty of somewhat fair skinned clients that want a darker tan. They love it!

  5. Lisa (verified owner)

    LOVE this solution, great color even used it on fair skinned people & it looked great!

  6. Marija

    I have been using this product for about three years. I have a fair/medium complexion and this color gives me a great tan year round. During the summer I will add a few of the DHA drops for a deeper tan. I highly recommend this shade for customers who want to be noticeably tan without looking overdone.

  7. Devon

    Dries fast and smells good! Doesn’t leave you looking orange. Have tried a bunch of different solutions and I like this one the best so far!

  8. Michelle (verified owner)

    Absolutely amazing.

  9. Ernest

    Beautiful dark solution for my clients that want a nice tan

  10. Clyde

    Nice dark color, and still a very beautiful natural looking tan.

  11. Deb

    After trying the other solutions, I found this to be a better fit for me and everyone i spray. Love the olive tone that cancels out the orange color a lot of spray tan solutions have. Goes on well, and last!

  12. Arian (verified owner)

    Best stuff out there! My clients always get great results! Lasts up to 2 weeks!

  13. David

    We switched to this spray from another brand and were pleasantly surprised to find that it dried quickly, didn’t have that “sticky” feel that we had with the previous commercial brand, and that spray tan smell was almost nonexistent. The spray goes on smoothly, looks completely natural, and the tan is long-lasting.

  14. Amanda

    The best dark solution for my clients…they all LOVE it 🙂

  15. Zenny (verified owner)

    I have been using this product for 3 years. My clients love it. Gives the best color tan! I have used several companies and this is the best !

  16. Chelsea Hawk

    The color is a little dark for light colored skin, however it still looks golden and the color faded naturally.

  17. Hannah Richardson

    For my clients that have a bit of a darker skin tone this solution is perfect for them.

  18. Rachel L

    I love this product, and will be making this a regular purchase, this product really covers with the right amount of color.

  19. Laraine S

    Natural dark tones, great product

  20. Bridget

    The color is a little dark for light colored skin, however it still looks golden and the color faded naturally.

  21. Jennifer (verified owner)

    Every one of their products is AMAZING and my clients love it. The 12% is great for my clients who normally use the 9% in the winter…They bump it up when their skin gets a little bit of a natural tan.
    Or for my clients who use are VERY comfortable being tan and have already tried the 9.

  22. Alyce (verified owner)

    I love all their products. I even use the solution on a tanning mitt when I don’t have time for a spray tan. This company is local for me so I can just drop by and pick up what I need. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful. I am a customer for life!

  23. Stacy Day

    This color is a perfect shade for all skin types. It is not too sticky and applies very evenly. It’s the 2nd time I’ve ordered this color and have not had any problems.

  24. SammyPge

    Great solution there is little to no smell, it doesn’t leave too much of a sticky feeling and it lasts a full week before there are sign of fading.

  25. Lori ARNOLD (verified owner)

    I like that the solution comes put golden every time. Very natural looking.

  26. fears.shea

    This product is absolutely amazing, I have been running my spray tan business for almost 10 years and once I found this solution I never ever wanted to touch any other solution ever again ! I’m rated number one in six different states for my spray tanning I fly all over the place and this by far is the most beautiful color I would ever lay on my client skin !

  27. Chane Klopper (verified owner)

    I absolutely love it. The color is perfect and it last just well over 10 days. My clients are gaga over it

  28. Allegra Macedo (verified owner)

    I have tried many other brands and after trying Sjolie I’M NEVER GOING BACK! I have been using their products for almost a year now and this No. 12 specifically is the most natural looking color that literally suits almost all my clients no matter how naturally pale/tan they are. I prep my clients with the pH balancer spray and it always leaves the most natural glowing looking tan.
