Self Tanning products – Why to choose Organic

Organic tanning products

A tan can leave us feeling fresh, glowing and confident, especially during these cool winter months when we tend to stay indoors, which means we miss out on regular sun exposure. But we all know the serious dangers of harmful UV rays and the warnings which come with traditional sun tanning.

Skin cancer warnings relating to sun tanning are everywhere in the media as well as through strong government advertising campaigns and product labeling. People are now more aware than ever of the risks associated with long exposure to the sun resulting in huge demand for self tanning and "fake" tanning products.

The market for self tanning is extremely competitive, and offers consumers a variety of products at varying costs with ever expanding product offerings. Although the choice is there, consumers need to be particular with what products they purchase and use, as the effects which they can have on your skin and general health differ from product to product.

Most regular self tanning products on offer contain a range of chemicals including Parabens, commonly known to have the ability to affect the body's hormones, and Sodium Laureth Sulphate which is an additive flagged by governing health organisations to warn consumers it should be ingested only in minimal amounts (through absorption into your bloodstream).

Chemical-laden tanning products can also have adverse and visible effects on a person's skin including drying, irritations such as rashes and other skin reactions.

For these reasons, Organic self tanning products are always recommended as their ingredient lists exclude these harmful chemicals and opt to use natural plant based, non-harmful ingredients.

Things to look out for to ensure you're buying genuinely Organic:

  1. Ingredients are organic - certified by the Organic Food Chain;
  2. Look for the recognised industry certification logo and processor number;
  3. Ensure colourings are not included on the Ingredients list - natural colouring substitutes can include ingredients such as 'cacao';
  4. Products may also be vegan and accredited by environmental organisations such as 'Choose Cruelty Free'.
