Sunshine is primarily made up of two types of ultraviolet (UV) rays: UVA and UVB. UVA rays penetrate deeply into the skin. When your skin is exposed to UVB rays in moderation, it produces Vitamin D, which has numerous health benefits.
Tanning lotions help to accelerate the tanning process by increasing the skin’s sensitivity to UV rays. This allows for quicker and more efficient tanning, reducing the time needed in the sun or a tanning bed. Furthermore, many tanning lotions are enriched with ingredients to moisturize and protect the skin from damage.
Vitamin D is crucial for the absorption of calcium and phosphate in our bodies. These nutrients are vital for healthy bones, teeth, and muscles. The human body primarily generates Vitamin D when the skin is directly exposed to sunlight, specifically UVB rays. However, it’s important to balance sun exposure, ensuring it’s moderate and safe to avoid skin damage.
Sun protection lotions contain ingredients that shield the skin from harmful UV rays. By applying a sun protection lotion before exposure, you allow your skin to gradually build up a tan without the risk of sunburn or excessive UV damage. This slow buildup of color is safer and lasts longer than a tan achieved from intense, unprotected sun exposure.
Sun exposure can dehydrate your skin, leaving it dry, flaky, and prematurely aged. By applying a moisturizer, you can help your skin retain its natural moisture, maintain a healthy glow, and prevent premature aging.
Our products are formulated with care to be suitable for all skin types. However, if you have particularly sensitive skin or specific skin conditions, we recommend patch testing the product on a small area first to ensure no adverse reactions occur.

Our bronzers, to be honest, are a dream come true to us. They have a profound tanning effect: yet the tan looks very natural AND they don’t stain or streak on your skin. Seriously, we don’t know how we did it. We still kneel before our lab guy every morning.
Note: our bronzers will not stain if applied normally: distributed fairly evenly as you would any other lotion. But should you want to make a drawing on someone’s back when they’re sleeping, you could. Not that you would want to. But just in case. Always wash your hands after applying.
