Why sunless tanning?
The use of sunless tanning lotion is the safer, healthier alternative to conventional sun tanning, which exposes your skin to the harmful effects of UVA and UVB rays. It’s also a much healthier option than tanning beds, which have been shown to negatively affect your skin’s health.
Did You Know? Regular use of tanning beds before the age of 35 can increase your risk of melanoma by up to 75%!
Naturally, TanOrganic natural and organic self-tanners are far superior to ordinary chemical-laden tanning lotions, as your skin won’t soak up any harsh hidden nasties during application.
- Wash and exfoliate your skin, paying close attention to problem areas like knees, ankles and elbows where your skin is drier.
- Proper exfoliation will ensure the tan doesn’t build up and leave you with the streaky tell-tale signs of a bad sunless-tan.
- Apply a few drops of tanning lotion (about the size of a two Rand coin) to the application glove; make a fist about 3 times to allow the glove to absorb the lotion.
- Apply the tanning lotion in circular motions, starting on your calves and working your way up to your thighs. Make sure you cover all areas, paying special attention to the knees and ankles and ensure that there is no build-up in the creases.
- Allow the tan to dry and if you have missed any areas, you can easily blend in any lines with a bit of Oil Arganic. Apply as above to the rest of the body.
- TanOrganic takes 6-8 hours to develop fully; for best results, leave it overnight.
- Your sunless tan will develop every hour after application up to 8 hours and will last between 5-8 days.
- Start on your legs but leave your hands and feet until the end.
- Remember to check hard-to-reach areas in a mirror so that nothing is missed.
- Less is more; each bottle should give you on average 5-7 full body tans.
- TanOrganic should be applied in light layers, do the first layer and let it dry for a couple of minutes, if you are looking for a darker look, apply a second or third layer.
- We recommend that you moisturise daily with Oil Arganic to ensure the perfect fade.

Just like any other self tanning product...

When I bought this (not from Faithful to Nature though) I was excited that its organic and that they promised no streaking.
I bought the entire Deluxe kit, with Arganic Oil, Application Mit, Exfoliation Glove, Tan Organic Original and Tan Organic Self Tanning Oil.
I exfoliated in the shower first, applied Arganic Oil and then the self tanner. I put a loose top over and left it for a few hours. Needless to say it did streak, even though I applied it exactly as instructed.
Its great because its organic, but that is all that sets it apart from other self tanners...yeah and the exorbitant price!
