What sets Melanoboost® apart from every day 'sun tanning oils'?

There are a number of sun tan oils on the market. Most of them can help you achieve a tan IF you spend lengthy amounts of time 'sun baking'. That raises the question; if you need to spend excessive time in the sun to achieve a sun tan, are you using the right sun tanning oil?

The Melanoboost® team spent years researching and developing an innovative product that combines high quality oils PLUS the sun tanning game changer – PEPTIDES.

Melanoboost® Peptide Complex is a unique combination of active ingredients powered by peptides that promotes higher concentrations of melanin in the skin to accelerate tanning with very little UV exposure. It is this use of peptides that differentiates Melanoboost® from other sun tanning oils, and what makes its performance so ground breaking - accelerated tanning at its best!

The Science Behind Peptides

What are peptides and how do they work?

Naturally occurring in our bodies, peptides are short chains of amino acids that are the building blocks of our body's proteins. The most familiar 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 proteins can slow down, or diminish with age, but thanks to 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, different peptide chains produce different effects; from smoothing wrinkles or repairing barrier function, to increasing firmness and hydration - the list goes on. Due to their role 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.

Melanoboost has introduced peptides to tanning to help boost melanin - GAME CHANGING!

What is melanin and melanin boosting?

Melanin is the pigment that makes our skin tan and is produced by cells called melanocytes. Melanin synthesis usually only occurs when our bodies are exposed to UV light. The more concentrated melanin levels in the skin are, the faster and darker you can tan.

Melanoboost® Peptide Complex contains a unique combination of active ingredients powered by peptides to promote higher concentrations of melanin in the skin without UV exposure. When melanin is boosted prior to sun exposure, very little UV exposure is required to tan effectively.

Regular sun tanning products like coconut oil may benefit the skin with moisturising properties, but don't actually contain any significant active ingredients, therefore don't boost melanin. When you apply regular tanning oils and lay in the sun for long periods, it is the UV from the sun the sun that stimulates melanin synthesis, not the oil.

Prolonged sun exposure is never advisable. We've explained this further in our "Coconut Sun Tan Oils & Why You Should Upgrade To Melanoboost" blog.



Melanoboost® Peptide Sun Tanning Oil

Apply Melanoboost® Peptide Sun Tanning Oil before UV exposure to help boost melanin levels and activate the tanning process, then use it during short bursts of UV exposure for accelerated tanning results. Just 10-15 minutes is all it takes to start seeing the difference Melanoboost® makes!

***We always recommend the use of sun protection when spending time in the sun. Apply sunscreen after you have applied your favourite Melanoboost® Oil.

If you’re serious about tanning and care about skin health, then it's time to take a balanced approach to UV exposure.
