* Different lamp manufacturers choose different colored phosphors to use in their lamps. Phosphors are the specially blended coating inside lamps that allow through UV light.

* The color itself has little to no effect on the type of tan that it gives. Whether a company chooses pink, blue, white, or any other color is purely cosmetic however the amount of UV light output by a lamp that is other than blue is reduced as the manufacturer has opted to add chemicals to alter the color instead of change the UV output.
