How Now Brown Cow Tanning Cream 200g

£15.50

We thought it was time we made our own self tanning cream as we wanted one that was genuinely natural and healthy and moisturising. We didn’t want SPF chemical filters, and we have never been big on Parabens or Benzoates used to preserve a lot of commercial creams. Our in-house tanning queens have given it the thumbs up for colour and also moisture. Enjoy!

Product Description

Self tanning ingredients themselves are actually pretty natural. They are either canola oil, glycerine or sugar based ingredients that combine with the amino acids which are part of the keratin on the skin. Various amino acids combine differently, producing different tones of coloration from yellow to brown. The ingredients can take a day or two before they turn brown. So very simply, the self tanning ingredients make a tan coloured pigment on the skin that looks like a tan, but is not a genuine skin tan which happens when our skin is exposed to UV. Because the colour is made by using the outer layers of skin, the colour will gradually disappear over a period of time as the skin sloughs off. So to keep the colour, it should be re-applied every now and then.
