How It Works
A Little About Our Tan Boost Technology™
When you apply Base Tan in the days leading up to sun exposure, you are ‘feeding’ your skin the essential amino acids it needs to boost and support melanin production. We call this our Tan Boost Technology™.
Using Base Tan helps equip your skin with the nutrition it needs to maximize melanin production and get the deep, dark tan you’ve been longing for while spending less time in the sun.
Supplement that process with potent antioxidants and innovative natural anti-aging ingredients like seaberry seed and açaí oils, and you’ve got yourself one powerhouse of a body lotion designed to help you bronze quickly and naturally while leaving your skin radiant and hydrated.
Backed by science, packed with nature.
Tan Boost Technology™
This specially-formulated amino acid is where the magic happens. It helps your skin to make more melanin, which speeds up the tanning process… so you can spend less time worrying about your tan and more time enjoying the sun.
Seaberry Seed Oil
This healing herbal antioxidant not only sounds magical but is a total powerhouse when it comes to protecting your skin against UV damage. Using sea buckthorn berry seeds supports the formation of cell tissue, meaning this oil can work wonders on wounds. Its antimicrobial activity also has soothing, calming effects on your skin.
This highly active oil is amazing when it comes to soothing inflammation and quenching very dry skin. Its phytosterols have a soothing effect while its Omega fatty acids (6 and 9) protect the skin from environmental damage. It’s also rich in a range of natural antioxidants, which help protect your skin from environmental stressors.
Rich in antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, softening, soothing. Ah, avocado. Is there anything it can’t do? This oil keeps your skin hydrated and helps to minimize damage from free radicals.
How To Use It
Instructions to suit all styles of sun-chasing.
Vacay? Summer holiday? Weekend getaway?
To maximize your skin’s natural tanning ability, apply Base Tan daily for a minimum of 5-7 days before prolonged sun exposure. This ensures your skin is fully-loaded with all the nutrients it needs to both protect itself and optimize its tanning potential.
Live in a sun-filled spot?
Apply Base Tan daily to support your skin’s natural protective functions, load it up with antioxidants and hydration, and keep your body’s bronzing ability at full boost.
Live in a cold or sun-starved region?
Take advantage of what little sun you do have! Apply Base Tan in the days leading up to and during (less-intense) sun exposure to achieve your body’s best glow.
We ALWAYS suggest using a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 20 (such as Smart Screen) if you intend to expose yourself to the sun. Using BaseTan alone does not provide adequate protection from sunburns, especially during extended sunbathing.
