HOW DOES THE MELANOBOOST PEPTIDE WORK ?
Melanoboost Peptide Sun Tanning Products are designed to boost the skin's natural melanin levels with an new innovative topically applied tanning peptide that is safe and effective.
Melanoboost uses biomimetic peptides to reinforce the natural tanning process. These intelligent functional actives are designed to boost melanin concentration in the skin in the lead up to UV exposure. Melanin is the pigment which strengthens our skin’s natural photo-protection and makes it tan. Melanin is usually only produced when our skin is exposed to UV light, however the biomimetic peptides used by Melanoboost are formulated to mimic this naturally occurring function without UV exposure; this is what makes the science of biomimetic tanning technology so game changing!
The more abundant our melanin levels are before we head outdoors, the better prepared our skin is for exposure to sunlight in moderate amounts, and the better its ability to maximise tanning results with minimal sun exposure; this allows us to take a balanced approach to UV exposure to maximise benefit and minimise risk.
WHICH MELANOBOOST WORKS BEST?
All Melanoboost products contain PEPTIDES of equivalent effect designed to boost the skin's melanin levels in the lead up to UV exposure, activate the natural tanning process, and accelerate tanning results with minimal UV exposure.
The yellow bottle contains a silky dry touch oil.
The coral bottle contains the same silky dry touch oil formula as the yellow bottle but has the addtion of + BRONZING sunless tanning actives to give you a temporary fake tan boost in the lead up to UV exposure. The coral +Bronzing oil can also be used after UV exposure to enhance and deepen the tan.
The blue bottle contains a light weight lotion.
The green bottle contains the same light weight lotion but has the blue bottle but has addtion of + Bronzing sunless tanning actives to give you a temporary fake tan boost in the lead up to UV exposure. The green +Bronzing lotion can also be used after UV exposure to enhance and deepen the tan.
The aqua bottle contains a refreshing spray with no fake tan actives.
After deciding whether or not you want the addition of a temorary fake tan boost, it simply comes down to personal preference as to whether you prefer an oil, lotion or spray. Our packs are a great choice if you want to try multiple products.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE OIL, LOTION AND SPRAY?
All Melanoboost products give the same results when it comes to a sun tan, so it just comes down to personal preference on whether you prefer an oil, lotion or spray.
There is an obvious difference in texture between an oils, lotions and sprays and how they look and feel on the skin...
Some people may like the way that oils have the ability to stay on the surface of the skin for a longer period of time, particularly during UV exposure when intense moisturisation counts the most. They may also like the way that oils have the unique ability to instantly enhance a natural sun tan with a glistening luminosity that’s hard to beat.
Others may prefer the fast absorption rate and light, weightless feel of a spray, especially pre and post sun exposure when feeling refreshed and replenished is key to comfortable skin, and looking visibly hydrated is paramount to a healthy looking natural sun tan.
Rich and soothing, lotions instantly quench any dryness leaving the skin visibly hydrated and soft to the touch which is why they are always a favourite.
Our packs are a great choice if you want to try multiple products.
DOES MELANOBOOST WORK ON FAIR SKIN?
Yes, Melanoboost will work on all skin types and tones.
The peptide used within Melanoboost is specially indicated for people with fair skin that want to tan but find it difficult to do so. It is these individuals who should benefit most from using Melanoboost.
Melanoboost was developed to work in the lead up to sun exposure to boost melanin levels and prepare the skin for tanning; when melanin levels are boosted, less UV exposure is required to tan effectively. We encourage a balanced approach to UV exposure to maximise benefit and minimise risk. The use of sunscreen is also recommended.
As everyone tans differently, results will differ from person to person. The results determined by you will also come down to your expectations. For example, if someone is very fair to begin with they shouldn’t expect to see results like an olive skin tone. Melanoboost is designed to help you achieve YOUR best tan possible. There are plenty of great reviews from fair skinned customers found on the product pages of our website.
DOES MELANOBOOST CONTAIN FAKE TAN?
The coral and green bottles contain additional +Bronzing sunless tanning actives (fake tan). These products are designed to build a temporary fake tan over consecutive days of application while the peptides work to boost your natural melanin levels in the lead up to UV exposure to prepare your skin for tanning. By the time you're ready to head out doors to work on your real tan, your skin will be perfectly prepped for sun exposure and beautifully bronzed for social exposure.
The +Bronzing sunless tanning actives will not show colour immediately when applied to the skin; the +Bronzing oil and lotion apply clear so won't stain your clothing or bedding. The fake tan will start to develop colour on the skin after a few hours and will gradually intensify reaching peak colour development at 24 hours. Apply daily thereafter to build colour intensity whilst boosting your skin's melanin levels in readiness for UV exposure. After applying the +Bronzing products make sure to rinse your hands after application.
If you prefer not to have any added fake tan and only want to achieve a natural sun tan only, the yellow and blue bottles are recommended as they do not contain any added +BRONZING sunless tanning actives.
I HAVE FAIR SKIN AND ONLY BURN, NEVER TAN. WILL MELANOBOOST WORK FOR ME?
Yes, Melanoboost is designed to work on all skin types and tones.
Tanning results will differ from person to person depending on your natural skin tone and your natural sun tanning ability. If you are fair skinned applying your Melanoboost daily and spending short regular periods of time in the sun will help you achieve your best results.
The biomimetic peptide is specially indicated for people with fair skin that want to tan but can’t spend longer periods of time in the sun.
The results determined by you will also come down to your expectations. For example, if someone is very fair to begin with, they shouldn’t expect to see results like an olive skin tone. Melanoboost is designed to help you achieve your best tan possible.
Melanoboost doesn’t contain SPF so make sure you apply your usual spf over the top of your Melanoboost and if you are fair, limit your amount of sun exposure.
IS MELANOBOOST THE SAME AS MELANOTAN / NASAL TANNERS / TANNING INJECTIONS?
No Melanoboost is not the same as Melanotan.
Safe and effective, Melanoboost is a performance oriented brand of topically applied suntan oils, lotions and sprays powered by biomimetic peptides designed to boost melanin, activate the natural tanning process, and optimise tanning results with minimal UV exposure.
Melanoboost is not systemic meaning it won’t enter the blood stream so it will only work to increase melanin production in the areas you apply it.
Melanotan on the otherhand is a prohibited drug that has not been approved for use by any governmental drug regulatory bodies globally due to the well documented adverse side affects.
Melanoboost is an Australian based company that has no affiliation with Melanotan.
IS MELANOBOOST WATER RESISTANT?
Melanoboost will absorb into your skin once you apply it, but if you are swimming or sweating excessively you will need to reapply it afterwards.
CAN I USE MELANOBOOST IN A SOLARIUM?
Yes you can use Melanoboost in a solarium / sunbed / tanning bed.
Unlike traditional tyrosine based indoor tan accelerating lotions and creams, Melanoboost contains PEPTIDES; these smart, active ingredients are designed to boost melanin levels in the the lead up to UV exposure to allow faster, darker tanning with minimal UV exposure.
CAN I APPLY MELANOBOOST TO MY FACE?
Yes, all Melanoboost products can be used on your face.
The base formulas of all Melanoboost products contain a superior blend of skin conditioning ingredients offering additional benefits beyond our Peptide Complex.
Our ultra light lotions feature Duraquench IQ; a humidity responsive moisturising complex that optimises skin hydration by regulating water loss from the skin at different temperatures and humidities to provide exceptional, long-lasting moisturisation and skin softness beyond 24 hours, so are perfect to apply as an everyday moisturiser.
Our oils each contain 8 nutrient rich oils carefully selected for their superior skin conditioning properties and light weight textures. The silky consistency of the oils spread easily and absorb quickly without leaving an oily residue so won't clog pores.
Our spray provides deep and lasting hydration, yet leaves a dry weightless skin finish that is completely undetectable! The formula is enriched with marine extracts which are a rich source of vital substances including, minerals, vitamins, trace elements, amino acids, and antioxidants.
Melanoboost does’t contain SPF so make sure you apply sunscreen over the top of your Melanoboost when spending time outdoors.
IS MELANOBOOST VEGAN?
We're happy to say that Melanoboost products are vegan and not tested on animals. In fact, you will find Melanoboost listed on the PETA website. Less is More is part of PETA's (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) 'Beauty without Bunnies' programme and you will find Melanoboost listed in the'CRUELTY-FREE' DATABASE.
DO MELANOBOOST PRODUCTS CONTAIN NUTS?
All Melanoboost products are nut free, you will find detailed ingredient lists on each of our product pages. We do use Buriti Oil in our oil products, Buriti Oil comes from the Buriti fruit however, the fruit does contain a nut at the centre. We don’t use the nut in our products but it may be something to consider.
Our Melanoboost Lotions and Spray do not contain Buriti Oil so if you’re unsure this may be the best option for you. All Melanoboost ingredients are listed on each of the product pages under the “INGREDIENTS" tab.
DO MELANOBOOST PRODUCTS CONTAIN SPF?
Melanoboost Peptide Sun Tanning Oils, Lotions and Spray do not contain sunscreen, so don’t forget your usual sun protection. TIP: Apply Melanoboost first, let it absorb, then apply sunscreen over the top. Re-apply both again after swimming.
Melanoboost encourages users to take a balanced approach to UV exposure to maximise benefit and minimise risk. Regular short bursts of UV exposure should be sufficient to tan effectively using Melanoboost. Avoid prolonged UV exposure.
WILL USING SUNSCREEN OVER MY MELANOBOOST REDUCE MY TANNING RESULTS?
Wearing sunscreen won't reduce your ability to tan.
Sunscreen is vital when spending time outdoors to protecting the skin from burning, peeling and sun damage. We highly recommend the use of sunscreen and sun protection conjunction with all Melanoboost products. TIP: Apply Melanoboost first, let it absorb, then apply sunscreen over the top. Re-apply both again after swimming.
When selecting a sunscreen, choose an adequate SPF factor to suit you. The lower the SPF factor, the less UV protection. The higher the SPF factor the better the UV protection.
IS MELANOBOOST SAFE TO USE DURING PREGNANCY AND/OR BREASTFEEDING?
The Melanoboost range consists of topically applied products that works in the areas it is applied. The Peptide Complex is not systemic, meaning it won't enter the bloodstream. So it is fine during pregnancy and breastfeeding. As with all skin care products, during breastfeeding apply outside areas that would come in contact with a babies mouth.
It is important for us to note that all women and pregnancies are different and it is advised that you check with your individual doctor if you're unsure.
HOW LONG UNTIL I START SEEING RESULTS?
Results will differ from person to person.
It will depend on your natural skin tone and natural sun tanning ability. When used as directed in the lead up to UV exposure, some people have seen results when using Melanoboost with sun exposure in as quickly as 20 minutes; others who are fairer and have less melanin to begin with, may notice a slower tan progression.
We encourage users to take a balanced approach to UV exposure to maximise benefit and minimise risk. Regular short bursts of UV exposure should be sufficient to tan effectively using Melanoboost. Avoid prolonged UV exposure.
DOES MELANOBOOST STILL WORK IF I HAVE FAKE TAN ON?
Absolutely. Just make sure your fake tan is fully developed and you've had your first shower before you apply your Melanoboost.
WILL IT MAKE MY FRECKLES, MOLES OR PIGMENTATION DARKER?
Using Melanoboost in itself will not affect moles, freckles and pigmentation, however UV exposure may make these darker spots more evident.
Melanoboost recommends that you take a balanced approach to sun exposure to maximise benefit and minimise risk. Limit your UV exposure times and always wear sunscreen when enjoying your time in the sun.
WILL MY MELANOBOOST TAN FADE LIKE A REAL TAN?
Yes, it will fade like a real tan because it IS a real tan!
If you continue to use it on a daily basis (even indoors) it will continue working on your tan without the need for UV exposure so therefore you can potentially keep a level of tan all year round.
HOW LONG WILL MY TAN LAST?
This will be dependent on a few things: your natural tanning ability, and how well you care for and maintain the health of your skin.
Melanoboost will continue to assist melanin production each time you apply it, so with continued daily use combined with regular short bursts ofUV exposure, you can potentially keep a level of tan all year round.
Exposure to the sun and outdoor elements can leave your skin feeling dry, tight and thirsty for moisture. Enriched with skin codtioning and anti-oxidant ingredients, Melanoboost Peptide Sun Tanning Oils, Lotions and Sprays help soothe and protect skin post sun exposure, providing hours of hydration to quench any after-sun tightness and prevent peeling, contributing to a longer lasting tan.
DOES MELANOBOOST AFFECT TATTOOS?
Melanoboost has no affect on tattoos. Melanoboost products are designed to nourish and hydrate the skin which is beneficial for the appearance of tattoos.
To our knowledge (tattoos are not our expertise), tattoos can be affected (faded) by sun exposure, so if you are spending time in the sun, protect your skin and tattoos accordingly by using an spf.
