Every day more and more people are turning away from the damaging rays of the sun and tanning beds and instead turning to sunless tanners to get a safe, natural-looking tan without the harmful side effects of tanning.
What is Sunless Tanner?
Sunless Tanners, also called self tanner, are lotions that react with the amino acids in the top layer of the skin to produce a temporary artificial suntan without exposing the body to ultraviolet (UV) rays. Self Tanning lotions are a safe alternative to sunbathing .
Most self tanners gradually give the skin a sun-kissed glow that normally starts to wear off within 4-5 days.
Is Sunless Tanner Safe?
Self tanners contain an ingredient called Dihydroxyacetone, or DHA, which is the active ingredient in self tanners that gives the skin its color. DHA is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is nontoxic when applied to the skin.
Other inactive ingredients, such as those found in Moisture Tan Sunless Tanning Lotion, may include:
- Sesame Oil
- Jojoba Oil
- Aloe Vera,
- Vitamin E
- Propylene Glycol – a stablizer commonly used in topicals and vitamins.
- Ceteryl Alcohol – mixture of fatty alcohols found in plants such as coconuts or palm oil (Wikipedia). Used in many lotions for its emollient properties that smooth and soften skin
Best Self Tanner
Looking for the best self tanner? Whether you’re a man or woman, have pale skin or medium-skin tones, here are a few things to look for when choosing a self tanner for your body, feet, or face.
The best self tanners will:
- not streak
- not leave your skin looking orange
- give your skin a natural-looking fake bake tan
- leave your skin soft and smooth
- not have a bad odor
- dry in minutes
Some self tanners on the market contain either Stearic Acid, Triethanolamine, and/or Mineral Oil. These ingredients contain a high PH level which turns the skin orange. Tanning Bay’s self tanners do not contain these ingredients which is just one of the reasons customers love our tanning lotions.
