People still want to get tan. Most of us look better with a golden tan. Through the 40 plus years I have been involved in this industry, I have heard countless stories of people who say the feel better with a tan, have more confidence and are just generally happier.
For almost 25 years with Absolutely Natural and with 44 years of experience, I have helped thousand and thousands of people get a golden, safe tan. There would be some that would argue that there is no such thing as a safe tan, but in my experience it is how you go about it.
Let’s face it … despite being told to avoid the sun at all costs by many, sun exposure is still our best source of Vitamin D. And, a suntan is nature’s only natural defense against UV exposure.
We have developed over the years an excellent system to help get and maintain that perfect tan called the 3-P’s. Everyone, despite their skin type, has three needs with sun exposure. A protector (SPF) for sun sensitive areas anywhere the bone is close to the skin), a promoter (moderate SPF or a tanning oil) for the rest of your body and prolongers (our two aloe products for use at night.
This blog is going to concentrate on our Absolutely Natural tanning oils to be used as promoters. It is paramount during sun exposure to keep your skin hydrated and our oils do a superb job of that.
We have two different oils we suggest for use in the sun, our ultra-rich Platinum Oil and our nut free Professional tanning oil. The Platinum Oil is a blend of nature’s finest nutrient oils each carefully selected for its benefits to the skin. These include Fractionated Coconut Oil, Organic Sunflower Seed Oil, Squalane, Rose Hips Oil, Kukui Nut Oil, Cherry Kernel, Macadamia Nut Oil, Carrot Seed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Camellia Oil, Green Tea, White Tea, Ginkgo Biloba, Tocopherol Acetate(Vitamin E) & Fragrance.
The result is an oil that keeps you hydrated and has anti-oxidant, anti-aging and free radical scavenging properties. This is a spa quality oil actually used by resorts all over the world as a massage oil, our Platinum Oil is the ultimate in luxury.
For those of our customers who have a nut allergy, we have put together a plant based tanning oil both safe and effective. Sunflower Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Passionflower Extract, Rose Hips Oil, Tocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E) & Fragrance keeps skin hydrated and provides nutrients such as a high quality Vitamin C found in Rose Hips Oil.
Both oils are as friendly and beneficial to the skin as they are to the environment. Since they are natural with no silicones, petro-chemicals, mineral oils, lanolin or other cheap fillers, there is no adverse effect on our precious coral reef.
I’m often asked if our more expensive Platinum Oil will give you a darker tan than our Pro Oil and the answer is an emphatic, No! Both will assist you with obtaining that deep, dark tan but the difference is in the nutrient benefit to your skin. After 24 years, we have a good handle on how our product sells and the Platinum Oil is the winner by a 20-1 margin!
Always remember to use a sunscreen on sun sensitive areas and the aloes at night. You can expect a long lasting tan and healthy, vibrant skin.
