Product FAQs
  • What is an intensifier/accelerator?
    An intensifier/accelerator features ingredients known to enhance the skin's ability to retain moisture and promote dark, long lasting color without the use of added bronzers.
  • What are natural bronzers?
    This technology uses natural based extracts to provide immediate color to the skin that lasts one-to-two days. Examples of natural bronzers are walnut oil, walnut shell extract, caramel, henna, carrot oil, banana or black tea extract. These natural extracts are considered immediate bronzers because they add additional color to the skin, much like a cosmetic make-up.
  • What are delayed bronzers?
    This technology uses the self-tanning agent, DHA, to increase dark color. DHA is a sugar cane extract that chemically darkens the protein in the skin, the more DHA used the darker the shade of brown. The color typically lasts for four-to-seven days and is seen within two-to-four hours after application. Hand washing is required with the use of DHA tanning lotions.
  • What are melanin enhancing bronzers?
    These bronzers break tradition with an advantageous twist of true sunless, self tanner based on enhancement of melanin biosynthesis. These are streak free and do not wash off because the color is the natural tan of the skin but at the darkest tone possible. When melanin enhancing bronzers are used alone or with natural bronzers (without DHA), they take longer but produce a darker more natural color. These bronzers are designed to be low maintenance. Products with these bronzers will include include DermaDark ®, CellDark, NutriDark and TanDark technologies.
  • What does a tingle product do?
    A tingle product contains a stimulant ingredient, such as benzyl nicotinate, which stimulates and increases microcirculation of the skin for greater, more intense tanning results. Tingle products are available in a range of intensities from Tingle 2 to Tingle 70. First time users should start with the lowest tingle and work their way up to stronger tingles when they are comfortable. Tingle products should not be used on the face and testing a small area before application is mandatory.
  • What does a cooling product do?
    Cooling products contain special skin cooling ingredients like menthol. These ingredients counteract the heat of the tanning bed by drawing warmth away from the skin leaving, the tanner with a cooling sensation during and immediately after tanning.
  • What is a tan extender?
    A tan extender is a vitamin-enriched moisturizer that enhances and maintains your tanning results when used daily after showering/bathing and after each tanning session. Essential vitamins and powerful botanical actives preserve and prolong dark color. Some tan extenders are sold with DHA to give even darker, continuous color results.
