Tanning Lotions

Using a quality tanning lotion will help you achieve your desired tan much more quickly. It will also extend the life of your tan as well as protecting your skin from the effects of tanning.

Premium Tanning Lotions

At Sunseekers we stock a range of different premium tanning lotion brands, namely Australian Gold and Devoted Creations. And all of our tanning professionals are trained on the benefits of each product sold in our tanning centres. You can therefore be assured that we will only recommend you a tanning lotion that is right for your skin, your tanning goals and your budget.

We categorize our lotions into two categories – Accelerators and Maximisers.

Accelerator Lotions

Accelerator lotions are recommended for those who are starting from their natural skin colour and building up a base tan. These lotions contain 3 essential ingredients which help 'accelerate' this process.

Moisturisers – that help soften the skin allowing more UV to penetrate the skins surface. Remember, dry skin does not tan.

Tyrosine – this is the 'accelerant' as this enables our skin cells to produce more melanin (the tanning ingredient which without we cannot tan) when our skin is exposed to UV.

Vitamins A and E – essential vitamins to keep the skin healthy and prevent free-radical damaging (skin ageing).

Hover over each of our Accelerator lotions above to learn more about how these lotions can kick start your tan.

Maximiser Lotions

Maximiser lotions are recommended for those who have built up a good base tan but want to take their tan to the next level (often referred to as going beyond your tanning plateau). They contain the same ingredients as found in accelerator lotions but are more concentrated with these ingredients to really help push your tan further.

They also contain an added ingredient called copper peptides which helps the melanin that has been created in our skin cells react with oxygen to oxidise the melanin that results in our skin tanning.

Some maximiser lotions also contain a ‘tingle’ ingredient which causes our blood capillaries to thin thus enabling our skin cells to be provided with more oxygen which is vital for tanning. Only advanced tanners that have a good base tan should use tanning lotions that contain a ‘tingle’ ingredient and these lotions should not be applied to the face or neck areas.
