Most products must contain a preservative to prevent contamination. This is especially important with water based formulas. In small amounts, specific preservatives are considered safe, and the risk to skin from using a contaminated product is considered far greater than using a small amount of a preservative. We choose to use a blend of Phenoxyethanol & Ethylhexylglycerin at the recommended use level of 1.0%. Ethylhexylglycerin is a skin conditioning ingredient that also has the power to enhance the Phenoxyethanol’s ability to keep the product free from bacteria. Both have extensively been proven effective and safe to use and will not irritate or sensitize skin. That being said, we strive to be always be proactive in researching and discovering new ingredients as they become available.
All skin and body care products are required by law to have an expiration date. This ensures that a product will uphold its quality, performance and safety for consumer use within a given time period. Our products have a 2 year shelf life from the manufacturing date (printed on the back of every tube) and a 6 month period of use once opened.
Almost all sunless tanning products contain fragrance, essential oils, drying alcohols, synthetic colors, silicones, parabens, & PEG’s - ingredients that do not play any role in the formula’s efficacy and have been proven to aggravate, sensitize and dry out skin. You will never see any of these ingredients in our products. Every product in our range is a skin friendly blend of the highest quality natural tanning actives with moisturizing powerhouses and vitamin rich ingredients. We strongly believe that nourishing and taking care of the skin results in the most natural looking and longest lasting color.
We recommend consulting with your doctor if you are pregnant and looking to use any product in our range.

Contrary to popular belief, the synthetic dyes in self tanning products do not affect the resulting color. Their sole purpose is to show you where you have applied the product. There can be dozens of undisclosed, harmful chemicals in a single dye, and these chemicals can cause skin sensitivity, irritation and dryness. These dyes can also break down the tanning actives used, resulting in streaking and uneven fading. For us, the cons simply outweigh the convenience of a guide.
DHA (Dihydroxyacetone) is naturally derived from sugar. The molecules in the sugar react with amino acids found in the top layer of the skin, and produce a browning effect. It has a long history of safe use when applied topically and does not pose any health risks to the skin.
