“I’m a mom raising my daughter with my husband here in the South Bay. I created Capri Tan to match my standards for a luxury spray tan experience: Fragrance Free, Super Hydrating and made with quality, organic ingredients.”Charity LedesmaOwner, Capri Tan
It all started with a sunburn
on the island of Capri, Italy.
A few years ago, I was on vacation with my husband in Italy. Our trip saw us exploring Florence, Rome, and one special day on the island of Capri. We swam through the most vibrant blue water, explored grottoes, ate amazing food, and enjoyed delicious wine. My never-sunburned/no-sunscreen youth caught up with me that night. I had the worst sunburn of my life. It caused so much pain it put a damper on the rest of our trip.
I swore off the sun when I returned home and began researching the world of sun damage and skin care… which lead me to wearing sunscreen daily, big hats whenever I was in the sun, and began getting spray tans. I probably tried a dozen places searching for the best tan and, more importantly, the best experience. I had a few good ones but none that left me coming back for more. I drove all over LA looking for the ultimate tan: fragrance free, super hydrating, and made with quality, organic ingredients.
After not finding any place to match my standards, I decided to do it myself and started a small, mobile tanning operation. It started just for friends and then friends-of-friends and even friends-of-friends-of-friends. The more I tanned, the more I saw how a good tan had such a positive effect on these women. They would transform before my eyes. Their confidence was noticeably impacted by the time I was done. Over the years, I perfected my technique into what is now taught to all our tanning experts; our signature Capri Tan.
In 2017 we opened up our first brick-and-mortar location in Manhattan Beach. We loved being a block from the sand and we created the ultimate spa-like spray tan experience. Even with the beautiful location our clients kept saying they barely had time to make their appointments and that they wish they could get in more often. We were asked over and over again if we could come to their homes.
