How Does St.Tropez Work?
ST. Tropez formulations contain a unique combination of two completely safe active ingredients that work together to give a gorgeously natural looking colour that fades naturally, too. The first, Dihydroxyacetone (or DHA for short) is an organic colourless sugar that interacts with the amino acids in the surface layer of the skin to produce a temporary colour change – your tan. This ingredient is combined with Erythrulose, a naturally moisturizing ingredient derived from raspberries, that works in the same way as DHA but it develops more slowly, giving you a smoother colour that lasts longer and fades more evenly.
How Long Do I Need To Wait Before Showering?
Ideally leave it undisturbed for 8 hours – the tan will keep developing for up to 24 hours.
Will I Turn Orange Or Go Too Dark?
You will not turn orange with St.Tropez – our self tan range of products contains a green vegetable sourced pigment to help counteract any orange tinge. Our products are uniquely formulated to work with your natural gold and brown skin tone so, as your tan develops it will only go as dark as your skin would naturally tan.
Is St.Tropez Toxic In Any Way?
No, none of the active ingredients in St. Tropez have any known toxicity.
Can St.Tropez Be Used During Pregnancy?
Yes, our main tanning agent is certified organic dihydroxyacetone, with no known toxicity. St. Tropez only works upon the uppermost layers of the skin and cannot enter the bloodstream. However, be aware that hormonal changes during pregnancy (especially during the first 3 months) may affect the development of the tan. Do not apply to breast area if breastfeeding.
Can I Swim Once I Have Applies St.Tropez?
You must not wash, bathe, swim, shower or exercise within the 8 hour development time. You can swim once your tan has developed but swimming in the sea and chlorinated pools may result in your tan fading more quickly.
How Long Will My Tan Last?
Generally, a St. Tropez self-tan will last between 2-10 days, depending on your skin type and how you care for it.
Does St.Tropez Protect Me From U.V. Exposure?
No. There are no sun filters in St. Tropez products so it’s very important that you still use a sun protection product with sufficient levels of SPF when exposing your skin to the sun. Despite the appearance of having a natural tan, you must treat your skin as if it does not.
What Should I Do If I'm Worried About Being Sensitive Or Allergic To St.Tropez?
Although extremely rare, always seek medical advice if you think you have had an allergic reaction to St. Tropez products.
