Can I use Melanoboost as a tan accelerator in a tanning bed?


A frequently asked question from our international sun tan lovers is 'can I use Melanoboost as a tan accelerator in a tanning bed?'

The short answer is YES, you can use Melanoboost® Peptide Sun Tanning Oils and Lotion in a tanning bed. In Australia tanning beds are banned commercially which is why we don't actively promote Melanoboost® for indoor tanning bed use. That being said, we know just how popular tanning beds are in the United States, and users are always on the look out for the best tan accelerators on the market to help them achieve their tanning goals.

Melanoboost® tan accelerators contain PEPTIDES; your tanning game changer.

Melanoboost® tan accelerators are powered by peptides. 

Unlike standard indoor tan accelerating lotions and creams, Melanoboost® contains PEPTIDES; smart, active ingredients designed to boost melanin levels in the skin for faster, darker tanning indoors and out.

UV exposure to can leave the skin feeling dry, tight and thirsty for moisture. Melanoboost® tan accelerators are formulated to instantly feed your skin with much needed moisture during UV exposure, with a lasting effect that quashes that dry, after-sun tightness. Our oils and lotion are also incredibly light weight and fast absorbing, and will leave your skin glossy without looking oily or feeling slimy. 

Infused with our signature summer luxe scent that both women and men LOVE Melanoboost's fragrance is neither feminine or masculine. It’s a unisex scent that’s refreshingly sophisticated. 

How do you use Melanoboost® in a tanning bed?

The process starts before your visit to the tanning salon. Apply Melanoboost 1-3 days in the lead up to UV exposure to boost melanin levels and prepare your skin for tanning.

During your visit to the tanning salon, apply your Melanoboost® just prior to your tanning bed session. Our products don't contain any UV protection, so you should apply your usual sunscreen over the top. This is important. Using UV protection won't affect your ability to tan, but will assist in preventing UV damage. 

What should I do after going in a tanning bed?

Treat your skin to lots of moisturization. Melanoboost® products contain an abundance of skin conditioning oils that were selected to assist in keeping your skin hydrated and dewy. Feel free to apply your Melanoboost® as often as you like to treat your skin and continue boosting melanin too! Or you can apply your favourite body cream if you like. Lock in that colour!

Finally, enjoy your sun tan!
