Lotion Or Spray? The Best Non Toxic Self Tanner, Made In the USA

The best non toxic self tanner - spray & lotion

In addition to not streaking or being orange, is it too much to ask for a tanning lotion that’s also a non toxic self tanner made right in the USA?  Using self tanner allows you an island glow without risking sun damage to your skin.  Traditional tanning lotions on the market are packed full of toxins.  However, now you can tan at home without swapping UV rays for toxins.

Looking for such a specific product does not yield many results.   Lucky for you, we did the research and the searching that makes shopping for an American made, non toxic self tanner pretty easy. You can trust these American made products. Give one a try.

Non Toxic Self Tanning Lotion

True Tan – Natural and organic ingredients, cruelty free, and vegan for a tropical looking tan.  The formula has skin hydraters and protectants.  True Tan shows up in around 4 hours but is dry within 10 minutes so that you can get dressed. Safe to use on face and body.

My tan lasted a solid week.  Using the tanner once a week, you can keep an even tan easily.  The tanner was as moisturizing as any good body lotion.  I love the color; it is not orange in the slightest.  My favorite feature is the fact that it has NO fake tanner smell.

They make a “light-medium soothing lavender” and a “dark vanilla coconut”,  both made in the USA.

Non Toxic Self Tanning Mist

My Skin’s Friend – A tanning mist (non aerosol) that is organic, without horrible odor, and fast drying for a natural looking tan.  My Skin’s Friend dries in about 5 minutes max and the tan develops over a few hours.  Designed to use on the face and body.

This tan looks as if you got it just spending the day outside.  It is soft, even and gorgeous.  It does not have additional fragrance of any kind to mask the scent but the tanning smell is still nearly undetectable, and dissipates completely over the hours.  I love the simplicity of the mist application.  You don’t need help to get hard to reach areas.  There is no alcohol in the ingredients – no dried out skin.

  1. I have never tried a self tanner before, but since I am trying to take better care of my skin and use more sunblock, maybe I should!

    Self-tanning has come a long way since my teen years! In the late 70s, I remember something called QT which basically you rubbed on & it turned you weirdly orange & you left orange streaks on anything you sat on or touched!
