Let's look at the ingredient superpowers
We fight streaking! (the colour kind, not the lols nudie run)
Using eco-friendly production methods, we source naturally derived tanning actives from Avocado Oil and Coconut oil. They react with the amino acids on the skin’s surface to naturally enhance melanin without staining the skin.
We fight flaking and fading!
Thanks to Avocado Seed Oil, Coconut Oil, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Aloe Vera.
Avocado Oil, renowned for its rich moisturising and fast penetrating properties, improves the skin’s elasticity, helping to prevent photo-damage and dryness.
Aloe Vera soothes and conditions, plus Vitamin C and Vitamin E to hydrate the skin and improve its natural firmness with powerful anti-oxidant protection.
We fight stank!
No fake tan smell thanks to Eucalyptus Oil to leave skin scented with a light, delicate, natural fragrance.
What you can be sure we don't include, because ICKY

|Dihydroxyacetone||This is the key ingredient in self-tanning products. A simple non-toxic sugar.||TANS|
|Glycerin||A plant source liquid which has a skill to attract water to itself, so it helps to moisturise your skin.||NOURISH|
|Ethoxydiglycol||Dissolves all the ingredients together and helps it all absorb into the skin.||BASE|
|PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil||You will recognise castor oil, it's not what you cook with. Known as a surfactant, meaning it loves oil and water, helping the two live in harmony in cosmetic products.||BASE|
