You put on a little Tanceuticals lotion 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 great, right? Yeah, but exactly how 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.
It's completely safe and lasts until all those dead skin cells are eventually sloughed off-- about 5-7 days.
Here's what really sets Tanceuticals apart from all the other self tanners out there! In addition to the tanning ingredient that turns your skin bronze, we also add tons of healthy cosmeceuticals to our formulas that improve the quality of your skin. Our breakthrough ingredients like Argan Oil, Acai Berry and Shea Butter give your skin these added 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 like you just got back from the beach. But your skin will also look younger, tighter and much more radiant!
Absolutely! 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 40 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 :)
