I'm sure it's fine I am a beauty therapist. The tanning agent doesn't enter the blood stream as it reacts in the layers of skin. There is an Eco tan that I think is made from cocoa not sure if you can get it in the UK. I think people are too over cautious & won't dye hair or use certain products. Maybe check with your Dr or midwife to put your mind at rest.
