Sun Tan Lotion

Articles About Sun Tan LotionSun tan lotion is a product that is used mostly by women to make the skin appear golden brown in color. It is totally used for cosmetic purposes. Sun tan lotion is currently manufactured by several companies, all with claims of producing the best in the market. It is however obvious that not all products in the market do what they claim. Therefore, one needs to be informed before getting out to buy themselves sun tan lotion.

Sun tan lotion comes in different levels of strength. The difference in levels of strength is meant to suit people with different color tones. Strengths are varied by varying the amount of the active ingredients in the sun tan lotion. Products that are meant to produce the required effect within a short period of time contain high amounts of the active ingredient. The opposite applies to gradual commodities.

People with lighter skins do not need highly concentrated products because their skins need little work to be tanned. However, dark-skinned people need to use high concentrations over some time to achieve a light tanned skin. A personal doctor may be in position to offer some real guidance to a person according to their skin type and complexion.

Sun tan lotion contains dihydroxyacetone as the active ingredient. There is no such thing as unique formulations as claimed by most manufacturers in their advertisements. DHA, the short form for dihydroxyacetone is a kind of sugar that is colorless. In most cases, it is derived from beet roots and sugar cane. All tanning lotions, dyes, creams, and oils among others contain it as the active element.

DHA acts by reacting with the amino acid on the skin. This amino acid is contained in dead cells of the skin. Once the reaction is through, a dark colored tan is formed on parts of the skin where sun tan lotion was applied. The reaction takes place in the topmost skin layer called the horny layer. A characteristic smell is normally felt as the reaction proceeds.

The tanning effect of DHA was first discovered by a German scientist in the 1920s. At that time, the effects were not so good and forced cosmetic scientists to refine DHA for better and more predictable results. In fact it was discovered that dihydroxyacetone works better when mixed with arythrulose to form one compound. The effect of the compound lasts longer than that of the two elements working separately.

Dihydroxyacetone and erythrulose do not cause any serious side effects besides allergic reactions, rushes, and irritation for people with sensitive skins. They may however cause serious effects if ingested because they are meant exclusively for external use. Accidental ingestion should be reported to a doctor immediately after carrying out first aid. Sensitive parts such as eyes, lips, ears, and nostrils should be protected well to prevent sun tan lotion from getting into them.

Sun tan lotion come in various sizes at different prices. It can be obtained from drug stores anywhere around the world. One needs to check out the instructions about how the sun tan lotion should be used.

Here are Some Product Reviews

I probably will by again but may not use too regularly as I dread the horrific mess it makes, and if I can get a larger size in a pump I would prefer that as when you get to the end of the bottle it dispenses in bigger blobs, thus wasting product. Since the color and evenness, along with the price, are so good, I certainly recommend it and I am sure I'll use it again. 2/15/2012

Very natural looking tan. from Toronto, ON Verified Purchaser T
he tan I got was very close to my natural color of a tan. Doesn't have the usual self-tanner scent - smells like almonds. I apply it every other day to maintain the color. Stains hands a lot even if you wash them immediately after and will stain your bedding as well (but washes away without a trace on white sheets). Palms of your hands return to normal color by the afternoon the next day. One bottle lasts for approximately 2-3 weeks with every other day application on a petite body. Review posted 6/16/2012.

Best Sun Tanner Ever from Overland Park, KS Verified Purchaser
I love this sun tanner. It's great to mix with the lotion of your choice. It has a bronzer in it as well as a tanner, so you can see where it is and isn't as you're applying it. It's very dark, so it lasts a long time, too. Review posted 10/10/2012.
