As we head into warm weather, it is time to take care of your skin to repair any sun damage, while also keeping that summer glow going as long as possible. Self-tanner is the answer. 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 hydrates 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
Jane Iredale Tantasia Self Tanner & Bronzer – This double-duty summer must-have is especially unique because it does not contain DHA or FD&C dyes, the culprit of unnatural orange tones found in most self-tanners. Instead, Tantasia uses caramel color, mica and iron oxides (clean earth minerals) for a natural, sun-kissed glow. This tanner develops gradually for an even, customized, natural-looking tan.
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 any 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.
