Product Description

No.9 Solution is our Aloe Vera medium blend solution ideal for those clients with medium toned complexions. This solution is used most frequently due to its versatility throughout the entire year, allowing a range of skin tones to take advantage of its color and hydrating formula.

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.

Spraying one coat or two light coats of the solution at most.  Minimal layers of the product will allow clients to feel comfortable and dress immediately. Spraying multiple layers will not affect the depth of the final color!

Sjolie Solution № 9 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. Mary S

    I love this product! ALWAYS reliable and provides a beautiful tan everytime.

  2. Keli (verified owner)

    The solution 9 is my favorite and most popular solution. I have tried many spray tanning solutions but this is by far the best!!

  3. Tara

    Beautiful color and the tan lasts for about 8-9 days for most of my clients. Wish there was a solution that wasn’t quite as tacky.

  4. Jennifer

    This is chosen the most at my salon. It is a “one size fits all” type of solution to have on hand. It can be sprayed on pale skin, and it can be sprayed on darker skin tones while all looking great for everyone. If you are ever unsure what strength to use, stick with Solution 9.

  5. Jessica

    Beautiful color

  6. Cortney (verified owner)

    Love the solution 9 for my lighter skinned clients. It works so well for many of them and they love it. It lasts a long time, too!

  7. Anne (verified owner)

    When I bought a spray tanning machine for personal use a few years ago, I went in search of a good tanning solution. I found Solution 9 and have been using it ever since. I really like this solution! I have fairly pale skin, and I can achieve a lighter or darker tan with this solution, depending on what look I’m going for. The only reason I don’t give it 5 stars is because of the smell. It doesn’t necessarily smell bad, in fact it smells like every other solution. I would just really like a solution with no odor 🙂

  8. Alex (verified owner)

    I love this solution. The 9% solution is definitely my most popular color! Natural and even. My clients love how long it lasts and how even it fades.

  9. Kim (verified owner)

    This solution is awesome! I tried both the 9% and 12% and my customers have asked for it again and again. It flows on nicely and the bronzer makes my customers feel good instantly!
    When i first was getting familiar with Sjolie, the folks in customer service were extremely helpful and answered all of my questions, and shipped out the product that day!
    Thanks! Kim

  10. Marija

    Solution 9 is perfect for your fair clients who want to be tan without turning orange. I have used this on the fairest skin tones for a beautiful, natural-looking tan. I also have added in a few DHA to obtain a shade between the 9 and 12 solution.

  11. Toni (verified owner)

    I have been using since 2011 and never turned back. This is a great all around solution with EXCELLENT customer service!

  12. Heather

    I have tried many solutions, but I have to say this looks the most realistic on my fair skin, even with two coats. It’s the most olive toned I have found as most solutions look to reddish or orange on me.

  13. Karen

    Great Product! Love The Color & Price!

  14. Jessica

    this is one of the best tanning products that I have use. I am very pale fair skinned and this product never leave me orange.

  15. Lynda (verified owner)

    My prior solution cost about 20% more and the tan faded about 3 days quicker. Always on the lookout for something better. I ordered a sample pack of Sjolie. LOVE IT! and so do my clients. Love the natural color and virtually no odor. Sjolie 9 is my favorite very versatile can be used on anyone who is fair or medium in skin tone.

  16. Kylie

    I have very fair skin and I achieved an even natural looking tan. There is absolutely NO orange color to this product!!! The scent of the product is the best I have ever worked with. You will not be disappointed.

  17. Abby

    I have tried a few different spray tan solutions, and his one quickly became my favorite. It looks great on light to medium skin. I love how long the tan lasts and that it fades very evenly.

  18. Kate Williams

    This solution is fantastic! Perfect for all skin types and absolute beautiful results!

  19. Laraine S

    Good color, and the tan really does last. Almost no scent to the solution. A bit sticky initially, but that goes away once it’s dry.

  20. Dana

    Sjolie is the best available organic vegan friendly spray tan product on the market. It lasts and our repeat clientele is very high for this (our exclusive) spray tan line (Sjolie)

  21. Lindsey (verified owner)

    Wonderful coverage! I love that there isn’t an orange tint to it! The 9 was a good choice for my skin tone

  22. Jennifer (verified owner)

    The 9% is an absolute staple for my clients. If they have fair skin and are new to tanning the 9% is the way to go. Unless they are SHEET WHITE in that case I’d use the 6%.

  23. Lisa I.

    Wonderful natural looking color and smells amazing compared to other in the market.

  24. Rachel Griffin (verified owner)

    Great natural color. All my clients love it!! Fade is even and natural.

  25. Edith Hoffmeister (verified owner)

    We were using another brand but have been unable to get it, so we tried this and the clients liked it.

  26. Kari Felts (verified owner)

    The medium blend No 9 is by far my most requested color. It looks great on so many different skin tones, especially fair. It gives a natural but noticeable difference in color. I love how skin looks more even and tone with this color!

  27. Mari Carmen González de León (verified owner)

    I have been using this formula for almost five years on the majority of my clients, it is an amazing, golden and glowing color.

  28. Melissa Beardall (verified owner)

    This is my most used solution. My clients Love it and are consistently requesting this shade. I love that my clients come back. Someone could be the best “spray tan tech” in the world… But, if the solution they use doesn’t give a natural color, clients won’t be satisfied. A huge reason for returning clientele is how good your product is. That’s why I only use Sjolie. Especially 9% — The solution I order the most of! Thank you Sjolie for helping me build my clientele and my business!

  29. Jamie Barnard (verified owner)

    In my opinion, NO. 9 is the most versatile and complimentary solution available. You can dress it up or down with any other solution and additives to fit every client you have. It’s my trusty go to and best friend in my tanning kit! If I’m out of something else, I can always blend my NO. 9 to make it a perfect fit!

  30. Kara Kuhn (verified owner)

    I have been using number 9 on my clients for the past 6 months. After trying out multiple solutions from other companies, I fell in love with the Sjolie brand and their mission. No. 9 gives an amazing bronze, lasting color that leaves all my customers satisfied and coming back for more!

  31. Jessica Hughes (verified owner)

    How many tans can you do using a Quart?

  32. Michael Sjolie (verified owner)

    12 to 16 tans per quart is average. It will depend on the amount of solution per customer which will vary depending on the size of customer.

  33. Kendall Hils (verified owner)

    Just started using this brand and I fell in love after my first spray tan! They give great descriptions on each product and make it easy to figure out what solution will work best for you. Also the “aesthetic” of this company really fits my business style 😉 So it’s 5 stars for them!
