If you have particularly sensitive skin, you may wish to patch test this product. Apply a small amount of the Self Tan to an area of the inner forearm. Leave for 12 hours and look for redness or irritation. If there is no reaction, reapply the Self Tan in the same place and leave for 24 hours. If there is no reaction after this time, apply it for a third time to the same skin area and leave for a further 24 hours. If there is no reaction by the end of this time then it can be assumed that you can tolerate this product.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Can you give me some more information on the ingredient Dihydroxyacetone.
Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) is a natural ingredient derived from sugar that reacts with amino acids in the outer layer of the skin to form brown pigments that give the appearance of a suntan. In more detail, DHA is produced by an enzymatic reaction of simple sugars and glycerin. It reacts with amino acids and peptides resulting from the breakdown of dead cells on the skin surface to form melanoidin, a brown/orange pigment that mimics the appearance of melanin. DHA is a completely natural ingredient that is approved for use in certified organic personal care products.
Q. Can this Self Tan Lotion be used when pregnant?
There is no reason why the Self Tan should not be used before or during pregnancy. None of the essential oils are contraindicated during pregnancy, and none of the other ingredients would cause any problems. The tanning effect is entirely localised in the outermost layer of the skin and does not affect any living cells.
Q. Can this be used on the face?
Yes it can. Get the best results by cleansing the face thoroughly, then using one of our moisturisers or the Hydrating Firming Serum & Anti Ageing Facial Oil to make sure the skin is thoroughly hydrated before applying the Self Tan lotion.
