Do you know what is in your self-tan?

Summer is in full swing and you are spending more and more time down at the beach. You now know that it isn’t safe to lie in the sun anymore with these harsh UV rays, and you must always stay covered up but that linger for a bit of colour to the skin is still there.

However simply using a self-tan on the skin is not that simple or healthy. As our skins absorbs 70% of what is being placed on it, its hard to not be fearful of the amount of chemicals that come from self-tanners, especially because we don’t know the long-term effects yet.

Non-natural tanning may contain harmful ingredients including dyes, fragrances, alcohol, parabens, petrochemicals and harsh synthetics which can then cause reactions and hormone disruptions.

Natural Tanning such as Wotnot Self-Tan lotion uses Australian certified organic Kakadu plum and camellia oil to provide antioxidants and nutrients to help the colour development whilst the organic aloe very moisturises and soothes to have the tan fade naturally.

The DHA in natural tan should be COSMOS approved and not be a non-synthetic. The Wotnot Self tan uses sugar cane DHA, this reacts to the proteins and amino acids in the outer layers of the skin.

Natural tanning is the only way to have a healthy tan.
