Caribbean Tan Professional Self Tan and Tan Care Range is an innovative concept in the application of sunless tanning. Our state of the art delivery system virtually eliminates all problems associated with sunless tanning creams. No more streaky mess, orange palms, or dirty knees and elbows!
The innovative Sun Protection range, with UVA and UVB protection, mark the end of white streaky sunscreen. The products contain tan enhancing ingredients that make your skin tan faster and so lessen the time you need to spend in the sun working on your tan.
How does Caribbean Tan work?
Caribbean Tan products contain specially formulated active ingredients. One of these ingredients is DHA (Dihydroxyacetone – natural sugar cane derivitive). When applied to the skin, DHA causes a chemical reaction with the skin to produce a tan much like the sun, but without the UVA and UVB damage to the skin.
How long does it last?
Caribbean Tan lasts between 4 to 10 days, depending on your skin type and how well you maintain it. (click here for top tips)
How much does it cost?
Home products cost between R59.95- R99.95 Professional salon application varies from R200 – R300
Is it Safe?
Absolutely! All Caribbean Tan ingredients have been through extensive testing and are FDA (Federal Drug Administration) approved. Only about 1% of the population is allergic to DHA.
Caribbean Tan is a South African registered company, distributing various self tan and sun protection products, both locally and internationally.
Caribbean Tan was born in the mind of Managing Director Clive Roberts whilst on a sailing expedition in the Caribbean in 2003. The Caribbean Tan Professional Salon System was the first Professional Self Tanning Salon Application System in South Africa and subsequently sparked the Salon Spray Tan phenomenon, even for a new brand which today is well known and used.
In 2007 Caribbean Tan decided to make the product available to consumers and not just salons. Together with this decision we also recognized a need for a “non-oranging” product and a tan that is individually suited for different skin types, which also provided different application methods. So we got the best chemist and formulators together and did just that!
Needless to say, this world first technology and innovation has been a remarkable success and we continue to work hard to ensure the best quality product and result in every bottle.
Caribbean Tan spokesperson and representative Cindy Nell Roberts, who was also involved with the development of this new arm of Caribbean Tan, tried all the products in the development stages and inspires the brand with her search toward a healthier lifestyle.
“I use to love lying in the sun and on sunbeds, because I love being brown. But by age 25 I could already see the incredible ageing effect that had accumulated. I literally woke up one morning and noticed that I have more wrinkles than my older friends and pigmentation that has now taken me years to reverse. I love to be brown because it makes me look healthy, thinner and toned. But never again at the cost of my health and long-term appearance. Caribbean Tan is by far the best product I have ever used. Some say self tan only lasts 10 or 15 days but a tan from the sun only lasts a few weeks anyway so what is the difference? (And for all that exposure and UV damage I don’t want a UV tan– no thank you!)”
Caribbean Tan is distributed by Cosmetix, a South African registered company which manufactures, imports, exports and distributes various cosmetic brands. The company supplies some of South Africa’s largest retail chain stores and over 3000 beauty salons and spas.
