What is the difference between all five Melanoboost products?
Before discussing the distinctions between Melanoboost's five products, it's crucial to understand their shared feature: BIOMIMETIC PEPTIDES.
These biomimetic peptides serve as the driving force behind the Melanoboost range of tan accelerator oils, lotions and sprays, surpassing the capabilities of traditional sun tan oils and creams. The 2500+ positive reviews on our website's product pages further attest to effectiveness of biomimetic peptides in assisting the tanning process and helping individuals achieve their desired results.
So what are peptides and how do they work?
Peptides are short chains of amino acids that are naturally present in our bodies. They are the building blocks of proteins, such as collagen, elastin, keratin, and melanin, which all play a vital role in maintaining the structure, tone, texture, and colour of our skin. Overtime, the effectiveness of these peptides can decline as we age due to individual genetic factors. Biomimetic peptides are designed to mimic the functions of naturally occurring peptides, and are used in high end performance oriented skincare products to reinforce, repair, rejuvenate or maintain the skin.
Melanoboost uses melanin boosting biomimetic peptides to reinforce the natural tanning process.
Melanin is the pigment that gives our skin colour and makes it tan. Melanin is typically only produced when our bodies are exposed to UV light. Melanoboost uses biomimetic peptides specifically designed to mimic this natural process without the need for UV exposure. By increasing melanin levels before exposure to sunlight, we can strengthen the skin’s natural photo-protection and improve its ability to tan with minimal UV exposure. This innovative biomimetic peptide technology allows us to take a more balanced approach to UV exposure to maximise benefit and minimise risk.
Don't sun bake, Melanoboost instead!
NOW let’s look at the Melanoboost peptide powered product range...
The Melanoboost product range features five vibrant coloured bottles in shades of YELLOW, CORAL, BLUE, GREEN and AQUA. Upon closer inspection, you will see that the YELLOW and CORAL bottles contain oil-based formulas, while the BLUE and GREEN bottles contain lotions, and the AQUA bottle contains a spray.
Choosing an oil, lotion or spray is just a matter of personal preference.
Melanoboost oils, lotions, and spray all contain melanin boosting biomimetic peptides of equivalent effect, and each offers skin conditioning benefits to the skin, but they have different textures and application methods. Oils provide more intense moisturisation when needed most during sun exposure, and they have the unique ability to enhance an natural sun tan with a luminocity that's hard to beat. Lotions on the other hand, are non-oily and can be worn as an everyday moisturiser leaving the skin visibly hydrated yet dry to the touch. Sprays are quick to apply, have a fast absorption rate and deliver a light, weightless skin feel, making them ideal post-sun exposure when feeling refreshed and replenished is key to comfortable skin.
Comparing Melanoboost’s two Peptide Sun Tanning oils...
Melanoboost Peptide Sun Tanning Oil (YELLOW) and Melanoboost Peptide Sun Tanning Oil + Bronzing (CORAL) are identical in terms of their nutrient-rich oil base boosted by biomimetic peptides to optimise tanning results. The only difference is that the (CORAL) bottle includes additional sunless tanning actives to provide a temporary bronzed appearance before you hit the beach to work on your real tan. The coral bottle can also be used both during and after sun exposure to enhance and deepen an all natural sun tan.
Melanoboost Peptide Sun Tanning Lotions are both similar…
The Melanoboost Peptide Sun Tanning Lotion (BLUE) and Melanoboost Peptide Sun Tanning Lotion + Bronzing (GREEN) are similar in every aspect except for one. Both lotions have hydrating properties and a lightweight texture that leaves a smooth, dry finish on the skin. They both contain peptides that boost melanin, activate the tanning process, and accelerate tanning results. The only difference is that the GREEN bottle contains additional sunless tanning actives to provide a temporary fake tan in the lead up to sun exposure. It can also be used to enhance your tan post sun exposure.
Now let's look at the spray.
Melanoboost Peptide Sun Tanning Spray (AQUA) allows quick and effortless application over the whole body in seconds. Transparent and ultra-fresh, the fine mist spray absorbs instantly and dries immediately to provide deep and lasting hydration, yet leaves a dry weightless skin finish that is completely undetectable!
Below is an individual overview of each Melanoboost product:
Melanoboost Peptide Sun Tanning Oil (YELLOW) was the first product that saw the Melanoboost brand take flight as Australia's first and only peptide-powered sun tanning brand.
This oil combines Melanoboost's advanced biomimetic peptide technology with eight nutrient-rich oils carefully selected for their light weight consistencies and skin conditioning properties, this silky tan accelerator oil spreads easily and absorbs quickly, leaving your skin looking glossy without feeling greasy. Not only does this oil boost melanin, activate the natural tanning process and accelerate tanning with minimal sun exposure, it also helps to combat the drying effects of sun and outdoor exposure by providing intense hydration when it is needed most contributing to a longer lasting tan.
Melanoboost Peptide Sun Tanning Oil + Bronzing (CORAL) was the second product to drop introducing TRI-Phase Tanning.
The (CORAL) oil is identical to the (YELLOW) oil in every way except one; it contains additional sunless tanning actives to give you a boost of bronzed body confidence before you hit the beach! When you're ready to expose your body, your skin will be perfectly prepped for sun exposure and beautifully bronzed for social exposure!
Melanoboost Peptide Sun Tanning Oil + Bronzing promotes tanning in three phases:
PHASE 1: Non-tinted sunless tanning actives gradually develop a temporary sunless tan in the lead up to UV exposure.
PHASE 2: The biomimetic peptides work to boost your skin’s melanin levels and activate the natural tanning process while you're building your sunless tan.
PHASE 3: With melanin levels boosted and short bursts of UV exposure, phase three kicks in to accelerate sun tanning results.
Melanoboost Peptide Sun Tanning Oil + Bronzing is great for fair skinned people who really struggle to tan and need additional tanning help. It is also brilliant for those who want to take their natural sun tan to the next level, as the + Bronzing sunless tanning actives will enhance, deepen and prolong a natural sun tan.
The third product to be introduced was Melanoboost Peptide Sun Tanning Lotion (BLUE).
Formulated as a non-oil based alternative, the lotion is powered by peptides of equivalent effect to accelerate tanning with minimal sun exposure. Designed to be worn as an everyday moisturiser, the lotion effortlessly transitions from pre-tan melanin booster, to sun tan accelerator, to after sun lotion. The light, soothing formula spreads easily and absorbs quickly to deliver intense hydration, yet leaves a silky smooth skin finish that is dry to the touch.
Enriched with Aloe Vera and anti-oxidant Vitamin E to help soothe and protect skin post sun exposure, Melanoboost Peptide Sun Tanning Lotion provides hours of hydration to quench any after-sun tightness and prevent peeling, contributing to a longer lasting tan.
Melanoboost Peptide Sun Tanning Lotion + Bronzing (GREEN), our fourth product, was our next Tri-Phase Tanning triumph which promotes tanning in three phases:
The (GREEN) lotion is identical to the (BLUE) lotion in every way except one; it contains additional sunless tanning actives to provide a temporary fake tan in the lead up to sun exposure.
Melanoboost Peptide Sun Tanning Lotion + Bronzing promotes tanning in three phases:
Phase 1: Non-tinted sunless tanning actives gradually build a temporary sunless tan before UV exposure.
Phase 2: Boosts melanin levels and activates the natural tanning process while building the sunless tan.
Phase 3: Melanin levels are boosted and UV exposure accelerates sun tanning results.
Being a lotion, it deal for applying before bed as it allows the sunless tanning actives to develop overnight so you wake up with a bronzed appearance. It can also be used after sun exposure to enhance, deepen and prolong your natural sun tan.
Our fifth product, Melanoboost Peptide Sun Tanning Spray (AQUA) added a refreshing spray to the Melanoboost line up.
Free from chemical propellants, this fine mist spray allows quick and effortless application over the whole body in seconds. Transparent and ultra-light, this refreshing spray absorbs instantly and dries immediately to provide deep and lasting hydration, yet leaves a dry weightless skin finish that is completely undetectable.
Boosted by peptides to optimise tanning, the formula is also enriched with marine extracts to help ward off free radicals that disrupt melanin production and cause skin tone to become uneven. Other beneficial ingredients help reduce hyper pigmentation and improve skin texture, whilst cooling Aloe Vera soothes and conditions the skin.
So there you have it. Whichever Melanoboost peptide powered product you choose, one thing’s for sure, it will help you achieve your tanning potential.
