After that, tanning oils designed specifically for sun tanning entered the market - Think Coppertone and Reef Oil. Many people will remember grabbing a bottle of sun tanning oil from the supermarket for about 10 bucks (todays equivalent now costs around $25), lathering it on all over, then laying on their towel at the beach and 'sun baking' all day long.
If you ask most people from generations past about their 'sun baking habits', many will freely admit that they followed the mantra of burn first = tan later! (Yes that includes you X & Y generations). Millennials are not excluded either as many of you are following that mind set striving for the ultimate sun tan - PLEASE STOP!
Check out our modern take on the vintage 1967 Coppertone advert below? WOW how times have changed!
Our mission is to change your approach to sun tanning! We ourselves LOVE a sun tan, but prolonged UV exposure isn't good. We know that. You know that.
Melanoboost® = Minimum Sun - Maximum Tan®
Our sun tanning oils contain what the cosmetic and beauty industries refer to as 'active ingredients". These active ingredients are in fact our Melanoboost® Peptide Complex; an intelligent blend of PEPTIDE ACTIVES designed to BOOST the melanin levels in your skin prior to UV exposure and ACTIVATE the natural tanning process. TIP: When your melanin levels are BOOSTED, you should be able to spend less time in the sun, yet still tan effectively.
Melanoboost® promotes a balanced approach to UV exposure to maximise benefit and minimise risk.
Use Melanoboost® Peptide Sun Tanning Oil in the lead up to sun exposure to prep your skin by boosting melanin levels, then use it during SHORT stints of UV exposure for optimised sun tanning results. Remember NO sun baking! Just 15 minutes here or there, and Melanoboost customers are getting their sun tans on like never before!
"NEW HOLY GRAIL - I was so skeptical about this product but this stuff is my new holy grail... seriously though I usually tan for hours on end to build up a tan, especially at the start of summer, but after applying this for 2 days (without extensive sun exposure) and then spending 30 mins in the sun on the 3rd (in the morning so the uv index was only 6/medium) my tan is the equivalent to what it would be after almost a full day of tanning! Will be repurchasing for sure."

"FINALLY - Great stuff! Does what it says. I was most impressed as i am quite fair and do not tan well. I followed the instructions and applied daily whether it was sunny day or not. Love the oil it is not greasy and quickly absorbed, i needed to apply a bit more as my skin is fairly dry which is fine as you get a great bottle size and is worth the money. Another i liked was the fact that even in the Melanoboost Oil with Bronzing there was no sign of orange hands, bed sheets, or blotchy knees. Praise the Lord! I did however use the Melanoboost oil for about 3 weeks to begin with which prepared my skin initially and wore sunscreen all the time. I couldn't believe it when i actually started to tan! I got so excited i bought another 3 bottles and have just recently purchased Melanoboost with Bronzer and "WOW" I am seriously tanned! Just yesterday a friend said to me "Man , I feel very white around you at the moment!", I have never heard that! Completely addicted! Love it! Will post a picture for you soon!"

Please note: We always recommend that you use sun screen during UV exposure (after applying Melanoboost) to protect your skin from the sun's rays.
A frequently asked question from our sun tan lovers in the United States is 'can I use my Melanoboost® products in a tanning bed?'
The short answer is yes, you can.
The process starts before your visit to the salon. Apply your Melanoboost for a few days leading up to UV exposure to boost melanin levels. This is designed to prepare the skin for sun exposure and set it up for accelerated sun tanning. This step is key for the deepest, darkest tan in the shortest time.
The first thing you will notice when looking at the Melanoboost product range is the three vibrant coloured bottles of YELLOW, CORAL, and BLUE.
Before we talk about the differences between Melanoboost’s three products, it’s important to understand what is the same. PEPTIDES are the fundamental element that powers the entire Melanoboost product range beyond the capabilities of any other sun tan lotion, oil or cream.
NOW let’s take a look at the differences between the three Melanoboost products.
Melanoboost Peptide Sun Tanning Lotion - MAX BOOST your tan.
PRE TAN, SUN TAN, AFTER TAN = MAX BOOST
With all the amazing qualities of our original Peptide Sun Tanning Oil, but in a light, hydrating lotion, our new ‘BLUE’ Peptide Sun Tanning Lotion effortlessly transitions from pre-tan melanin booster, to sun tan accelerator, to after sun moisturiser.
