    Lutan F was the original name. However BASF added an "N" component to prevent it from caking or becoming hard during storage periods. Both the F and the FN types are the same.

    Hello, I read your explanation between Lutan F and Lutan FN. Thank you! The Lutan F that was shipped with my tanning kit did harden completely. Can I still use it?

    Well the "N" additive didn't work.. I have a 30lb bag of the FN and it turned hard as a rock while sealed in the bag..

    I've been told that it is still usable even though it is hard. Is just a PITA to weigh accurately in chunks..
