Title Investigating the north east sellers behind the nasal spray claiming to give you a tan Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet www.bbc.com Media type Television Country Denmark Date 06/10/2019 Description Banned tanning sprays are openly being sold on high streets in the north of England, a BBC investigation has found.
Makers of Xtreme Rapido nasal spray claim it contains Melanotan, a chemical that over-stimulates pigment production and turns skin brown.
As it is an unlicensed medicine while it is not illegal to buy it, it is illegal to market and sell it in UK.
But undercover reporters from the BBC Inside Out programme were able to buy the spray at high street premises.
