Want to know more about Fake Bake and how the products work? Read on for a detailed background.
Launched in the UK in 1995, Fake Bake Original Self-Tan Lotion was the very first self-tan lotion to showcase a cosmetic guide colour with no stain or dye. This patented triple tan formula, which contains naturally-derived tanning agents DHA, Erythrulose and DMI, enhances the natural pigment of your skin ensuring a streak-free natural tan for every skin tone. Not only that but this bestseller boasts an easy-glide formula, which enables this product to be applied with both ease and confidence. If a darker tan is desired, Original can be re-applied over consecutive days, however, one application is usually sufficient. Your therapist will start by preparing the skin with the Coconut Body Polish, you will then be left to shower before they apply the tan. This enables you to get the best result possible. You are required to leave the tan on for 8 hours but if you can sleep in it, this allows the tan to fully develop and last longer. You can also maintain the tan at home with several different homecare product options.
How self-tan works
Self-tanning occurs in the top layers of your skin, the Epidermis. The Epidermis is also made up of layers. The Stratum Corneum (or Horny Layer) is the layer affected by self-tan products.
Fake Bake Self-Tan products contain the naturally-derived, premium tanning agents DHA, Erythrulose and DMI.
Although DHA has been used in self-tans since the 1970s, it wasn’t until the late 1980s that cosmetic companies found a way to produce better results (browner, less orange) with DHA. This is attributed to an improved refining process yielding higher quality, more predictable DHA. Fake Bake only uses the most premium DHA within all of our self-tans. Premium DHA interacts with the amino acid – Keratin (more commonly known as ‘dead’ or ‘cornified’ skin cells) that lie in the top layers of your skin (the Stratum Corneum or Horny Layer). This tan develops rapidly but is also most temporary as your skin cells are worn away.
Effectively, DHA and Erythrulose do the same thing – they react with Amino Acids to turn your skin brown. Erythrulose is a Ketose which also reacts with the amino acid – Keratin. This reaction leads to the formulation of brownish coloured polymers called Melanoids. Erythrulose used on its own has to be applied daily, and it never develops a dark tan. However, when combined with DHA, they work together to reduce streaking and mix colouring for a natural-looking tan. They also make your tan last longer and fade perfectly evenly for a continuously natural appearance.
Cosmetic Guide Colour
Fake Bake Self-Tans also contain a cosmetic guide colour. This assists your application, showing you where you have applied the self-tan. It also gives your skin an instant sun-kissed look. However, this is simply cosmetic and washes off to reveal a gorgeous Fake Bake tan.
