Bio-Tan is a glistening peach-colored, oil-free gel containing natural sugars and amino acids. The lightly moisturizing formula is free of the chemical odor asociated with self-tanning and leaves the skin with a wonderful fresh scent.
This luxurious, silky formulation represents a real advance in the creation of a sunless tan. The unique, proprietary process creates a golden color that glows from 'within the skin' to stimulate a genuinely sun-tanned complexion. MORE PRODUCT DETAILS
DHA, tyrosine, melanin, erythrulose, walnut extract and phospholipids.
All but the most sensitive skin.
When to Use:
A totally unique, self-tanning formula that mimics a genuine golden sun tan.
Contains DHA (dihydroxyacetone), most often derived from sugarcane beets. This natural sugar derivative, when applied to the skin, reacts with amino acids in the skin's surface layers to create a tan-like color. DHA is safe and has been used in self-tanning products for over 35 years. Researchers have now perfected the level of DHA to produce an authentic looking color that closely emulates a real sun-tan.
Contains erythrulose, a natural sugar and self-tanning agent which acts synergistically with DHA to produce a longer lasting, even tan with an attractive sun-bronzed color.
Contains melanin, naturally extracted from cuttle fish ink. Melanin is an excellent anti-oxidant and free-radical neutralizer.
Contains walnut extract. Traditionally used in skin treatments because of its fungistatic and astringent properities. It also contains a natural colorant, which imparts a subtle brown tint.
Contains tyrosine, an amino acid that, when combined with tanning sugars, produces a quick and uniform looking tan. The color produced is amazingly close to that of a natural sun-tan.
Bio-Tan works at a deeper level than other self-tanning products. The unique proprietary process creats color that projects from 'within the skin' in a similar way that the color of a natural tan radiates from the skin's melanin pigment. This simulates the translucent glow associated with a naturally induced suntan.
The formula does not have the tell-tale chemical odor usually associated with self-tanning products.
Color is smooth and even with the lively luminous look of a natural tan. There's nothing closer to the real tan.
Expect a golden glow that lasts up to three days.
Can be used on all skin types.
Bio-Tan Sunless Tanning Gel may be used as often as you like to create and maintain your desired depth of tan.
The secret to this natural looking tan is exfoliation. Exfoliate your skin with Cellex-C Speed Peel & Polish Gel before applying or re-applying Bio-Tan. It makes all the difference.
Spread a generous amount of Bio-Tan Gel over your face and neck. Avoid eye area, eyebrows and hairline.
Do not blend at this stage. Allow one minute for the product to be absorbed into the upper layers of your skin. Then, gently massage any excess gel into your skin. Use the same procedure for other areas of your body. Wear a loose, old T-shirt and baggy pants until step 6 is completed.
Wash your hands with warm water and soap immediately after applying Bio-Tan. Then, using the sponge wedgie provided, apply the gel to your fingers and back of your hands if desired.
Apply an oil-free moisturizer to face - Cellex-C Sea Silk - or to your body - Body Sheen & Toning Gel - to give your skin an extra glow. If your preferred moisturizer contains oil, wait 20 minutes before applying it as it may interfere with the color development.
After 3-4 hours, gently wipe your skin with a warm, damp washcloth. This will remove excess superficial color left on the surface of your skin. You will notice how the tan now reflects through your skin giving a totally natural light golden tanned appearance. If a deeper tan is desired, repeat the application of Bio-Tan.
To keep your tan looking fresh and natural, exfoliate every 2-3 days with Cellex-C's Speed Peel & Polish Gel and then reapply Bio-Tan following the same steps as before.
