Spray Tanning

Getting it right is about more than just colour. It’s about feeling fantastic on the inside too.

Thanks to Xen-Tan’s unique moisture-rich formula, now even the fairest skin can enjoy a natural-looking tan. With a gorgeous fresh fragrance, it goes on smoothly and fades evenly, for a flawless finish every time. Leaving you looking radiant and feeling amazing.

So how does it achieve such beautiful, olive results?

Thanks to a unique time-release ingredient, Xen-Tan have been able to include even more DHA (the active tanning ingredient) in their products than ever before. So you can enjoy longer lasting, more natural, and beautifully even results that complement your skin tone and fade evenly too.

Xen-Tan is formulated to generate a natural-looking tan -both the instant colour and the developed sunless tan. Many other self-tan products result in an artificial “copper” colour that looks unrealistic (ORANGE) on most skin types. The instant colour and the active tanning ingredients in XEN-TAN products are carefully-crafted to yield a beautiful natural colour – even on the fairest skins.

Who are Xen-Tan?

Founded in the USA, Xen-Tan is the brainchild of a group of dedicated self-tanners who were unhappy with the dry skin, orange finish, bad odours and mess that often came with fake tanning products. So they developed a range that was easy to use, smelled fantastic, left their skin nourished and guaranteed the most flawless, healthy-looking tan every time. Once they discovered the key to creating the sun-kissed glow they all loved, they were delighted. So they decided to share it.

After proving such a hit in the US, the Xen-Tan range was brought to the UK and Europe by beauty specialists Skin Solutions UK Ltd. And it’s fast becoming the brand of choice for fake tan lovers and celebrities alike, along with leading beauty experts from the fashion, TV, music and film industries which include Gok Wan and Lady Gaga.

Award winning

Xen-Tan is the revolutionary fake tan for people who want to enjoy a gorgeous natural-looking glow that makes them look and feel gorgeous. And it’s already received a stack of prestigious beauty awards, including Harpers Bazaar’s Best Self Tan 2009, Elle Beauty’s Best-Ever Beauty Buys 2009 and handbag.com’s Readers’ Choice Best Self-Tan 2009.

So much safer

The dangers of sunbathing and using sunbeds cannot be ignored. And with Xen-Tan you can achieve the beautiful tan you love, without putting your skin, or your health, at risk. In fact, thanks to Xen-Tan’s skin-nourishing formula and rich moisturisers, using it actually helps care for skin, to keep it feeling fabulous.

FAQ

How does Xen-Tan give such a natural-looking tone?

The secret to Xen-Tan’s success is the increased levels of DHA, the active tanning ingredient. DHA is released slowly over time to give a deeper, richer olive tone that lasts longer. Our unique formula contains a special time-release agent called Lexorez, which means they can include much higher levels of DHA. Combined with premium moisturisers that are absorbed naturally into the skin, the result is a smoother, more even sunless tan.

How long does Xen-Tan last for?

Once applied, Xen-Tan creates an instant, seductive colour that intensifies over the next 3-4 hours and will continue deepening for the next 4 hours. You’ll then be getting envious looks and adoring glances for up to ten days, which can be extended using the Transform gradual tanner as a tan extender.
Xen-Tan is packed with moisturisers that penetrate deep into your skin to prevent dry patches from occurring. This also makes it easier to apply to problem areas like hands and feet. So once you’re done, all you’re left with is a sensational look and dreamy smooth skin. Nothing more, nothing less.

Why does Xen-Tan last longer than other brands?

It’s quite simple really – many existing brands use fruit acids to remove unwanted skin cells from the surface of your body. These fruit acids, whilst effective, also make your tan fade faster and dry out your skin, all fruit acids have been removed from Xen Tan products and enriched the formula with moisturisers that retain your glow for longer. These premium moisturisers, combined with the higher levels of DHA in our products and the special time-release agent, Lexorez, mean Xen-Tan lasts days longer than other fake tans on the market.

Is Xen-Tan suitable for very fair skin?

Yes it is. In fact, Xen-Tan was specifically formulated by a fair-skinned woman for this very reason! The unique combination of moisturisers and time-release agent Lexorez, plus the fact all of our products have olive and not orange undertones, mean they work with your natural colour. So now even the fairest skin can enjoy a beautiful, natural-looking glow that blends in seamlessly regardless of skin tone, leaving you with an exquisite tan and a radiant smile.

Do you have to sleep in it like other self-tanning formulas?

No. Unlike other sunless tans Xen-Tan gives an instant, pure colour that becomes richer over time. And because it’s beautifully scented it’s a pleasure to use any time of day. Ideal if you want to look sensational and feel amazing in no time at all.

How long do I need to leave Xen-Tan on before showering it off?

Your tan will start to develop over the 3-4 hours following application. You can wash it off after that, but for the best possible results, we suggest you leave it on for at least 7-8 hours before showering. Thanks to its delicious scent, you can apply it first thing and feel confident wearing it all day. We do recommend wearing darker clothes while your tan is developing.

Can people with dry skin use Xen-Tan?

Xen-Tan is packed with moisturisers that penetrate deep into your skin to prevent dry patches from occurring. This also makes it easier to apply to problem areas like hands and feet.

What fragrance does Xen-Tan have?

Each product has a different light and delicious fragrance, which are not at all ‘biscuity’ like other fake tans often are. Due to its high levels of DHA, Dark Lotion Absolute Luxe also contains Scent Secure – a revolutionary new ingredient that locks out any chemical odour.
My opinion is that it smells a little like a bounty bar – chocolatey with a little coconut

Does Xen-Tan protect you from the sun?

No, Xen-Tan contains no SPF, so always make sure you use a high factor sun cream when you’re out in the sun. We recommend using an oil-free variety as the oils in sun cream can break down DHA and cause your tan to fade more quickly.

What is DHA?

DHA is the active ingredient used in sunless tanning products. Now for the science bit… Full name dihydroxyacetone, it’s a sugar molecule that reacts with the amino acids on the surface of the skin. The level of DHA we use in our products controls how dark and natural the colour looks. Too much DHA can lead to a “rusty”, unbalanced look. But too little, results in an ineffective tan that fades quickly. Xen-Tan uses a much higher level of DHA than any other product on the market, but because we combine it with time-release agent Lexorez which slows down the release of the DHA, plus skin-nourishing moisturising oils, the colour looks completely natural, lasts longer and doesn’t give off the off-putting ‘fake tan smell’ which it’s responsible for in so many other tanning products.

Can I moisturise with Xen-Tan?

Yes you can – once you’ve showered after applying, you moisturise skin daily with an oil-free moisturiser.
