Patented plant allo-melanin is the scientific brilliance behind our gradual tanning lotion. An antioxidant that replicates the skin’s melanin production, as well as protecting from oxidative stress, it also slows down the production of DHA - the ingredient in tanning products that naturally browns the dead skin cells and causes your skin to change colour and ‘tan’. By putting the brakes on this process it means there won’t be any unnatural surprises the morning after you’ve applied this, just a gorgeous, even and sun-kissed appearance. Beetroot amino acids and mango butter also up the antioxidant ratio to keep skin safe from environmental aggressors while aloe vera, golden jojoba oil and coconut oil keep skin hydrated and smooth.
This product is freshly made in the UK using the most nutritious, sustainably sourced ingredients from across the globe.
Our patented plant allo-melanin works by mimicking the colour of your skin’s own melanin. Often that orange ‘fake’ colour from a tanning product is because the DHA in the formula has worked too quickly and oxidised on the skin but our plant allo-melanin takes a slow and steady approach so you get an even, natural-looking tan every time.
This tropical skin nourisher made from mango seeds is lovely and light and has no greasiness which is why it’s glorious to smother onto skin. It’s also loaded with nutrients including vitamin A, C and E, magnesium, zinc and antioxidants to help protect and prep skin for a flawless-looking tan.
A marvellous emollient that’s rapidly absorbed, coconut oil is composed of fatty acids that the skin loves. It also keeps the barrier function in tip top condition so it doesn’t dry out because no-one wants a patchy tan.
