Now that we've established that Melanoboost is the best thing to happen to tan lovers around the world, what else does it do for your skin?
Our team spent so much time selecting special ingredients like Buriti Oil, Sacha Inchi Oil and Kakadu Plum to make up our Peptide Sun Tanning Oil. Each ingredient was chosen to offer benefits to a sun exposed skin. We all know that a little bit of sun exposure can do wonders for our overall wellbeing, but there's the niggling fear of sun (free radical) damage as well as overall dryness after a day at the beach! Read on to learn more about what makes this sun tan oil so special.
Melanoboost's base oil selection is packed with so much goodness, your skin will love you for smothering yourself in it! The light weight consistency of our oils absorb super quick to leave your skin with a glossy finish without feeling slimy. Melanoboost is designed to boost your melanin but it's important to maintain the glow and health of the skin beyond tanning!
Our base is made up of 8 nutrient rich oils, all delivering benefits to the skin. Here's a little about what each can provide your skin, on top of an unbeatable tan.
1. Grape Seed Oil
This delightfully light and airy oil can penetrate into the skin rapidly. It's moisturising qualities can help to quash that super dry feeling we tend to get after spending time in the sun, or swimming in the ocean.
Grape seed oil is known to provide antioxidant properties. What does an antioxidant do? In short, antioxidants are packed into quality skincare with the aim to reduce the amount of free radicals. Free radicals can damage skin cells and dramatically affect the appearance and health of the skin. Antioxidants are used to combat free radials. You'll see a lot more of the term 'antioxidant' in the list below!
Our extra special oil! Where do we begin to explain the amazing things Buriti Oil can help to do? We've listed them to keep it straight forward:

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.
