Naturally occurring in our bodies, peptides are short chains of amino acids that are the building blocks of our body's proteins. The most commonly recognised proteins found in our skin are collagen, elastin, keratin, and melanin. These proteins are responsible for our skin's foundation, tone, texture, and colour.
Over time, the effectiveness of these naturally occurring proteins can slow down prematurely, or will simply diminish with age, but thanks to technological advancements in skin care, synthetic peptides (man made) are often used to help reinforce those naturally occurring proteins in our skin to repair, rejuvenate and maintain it.
When it comes to performance based skin care lines, different peptide chains have different effects; from smoothing wrinkles or repairing barrier function, to increasing firmness and hydration! - The list goes on.
Due to their function in helping to reinforce the naturally occurring proteins in our skin, peptides have become some of the most powerful of all anti-ageing ingredients.
Most high-end cosmetic companies have embraced the use of peptides in their performance based skin care lines as they are proven to deliver results beyond the scope of main stream skin care lines.
Combining our knowledge in science, skin care, beauty and tanning, we knew that the same principles adopted by the use of synthetic peptides in performance based skin care lines could be applied to sun tanning products to help boost melanin levels and reinforce the natural tanning process.
Our philosophy is to combine sun and science to bring advancement to tanning products beyond the scope of traditional sun tan oils, fake tan, or prohibited tanning methods by using peptides to promote faster, darker tanning with minimal sun exposure - Performance based tanning at its best!

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.
