How It Works
Self tanners have been around for decades and have the power to dramatically (and quickly) enhance your beauty. But have you ever stopped to ask exactly how they work? If not, here's a short, 2-minute primer on what these magical potions do!
Too Good To Be True?You put on a little lotion or mousse at night and 6-8 hours later you wake up with a gorgeous, natural-looking tan that doesn't wash off.
And you never spend a second in the sun or a tanning bed.
Sounds amazing, right? Yeah, but how exactly does it work...
The secret is an all-natural tanning ingredient called DHA (dihydroxyacetone).
You see, this ingredient interacts with the dead skin cells on the outermost layer of your skin. This reaction actually gives those cells a beautiful bronze color. Which is solely responsible for your golden glow!
It's completely safe and lasts until all those dead skin cells are eventually sloughed off-- about 5-7 days.
Get a Tan and Improve Your Skin's Appearance?
Here's what really sets Tanceuticals apart from all the other self tanners out there...
In addition to the tanning ingredients, we also add healthy cosmeceuticals that improve the quality and appearance of your skin.
Our breakthrough ingredients like Argan Oil, Acai Berry and Shea Butter (and many others) are known for these important benefits:
- Moisturizes and Nourishes Dry Skin
- Evens and Smooths Skin
- Tone Firms, Tones and Tightens
- Protects Against and Repairs Premature Aging
- Minimizes Appearance of Wrinkles
So once you start using Tanceuticals, not only will you look and feel like you just got back from the beach...
But your skin will also appear younger, smoother and much more radiant!
Yeah, But Is It Safe?
It seems too good to be true, but these products are absolutely safe for your skin!
The main tanning ingredient in our self tanners, DHA, has been approved by the FDA since 1972.
That means it's been used in these types of products for over 50 years!
In addition, organizations like the Mayo Clinic, Skin Cancer Foundation, and American Academy of Dermatology all recommend self tanners like Tanceuticals over sun exposure or tanning beds.
If you still have any doubts, talk to your dermatologist or skin care professional. We're pretty sure they'll tell you the same thing 😉
