Description Product Details Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Q: What is DHA?
    A: DHA is the ingredient present in all self-tanners that affects the color of skin. It reacts with amino acids found in the top layers of skin to create a shade of brown; the effect begins to appear within two to six hours after application and it can build color depth with every reapplication.
  2. Q: What is Erythrulose?
    A: Erythrulose is a natural sugar and a unique DHA enhancer that improves sunless tanning results.
  3. Q: I always have trouble sunless tanning my hands & feet, they always turn out orange and rusty, what do I do?
    A: Use a small dollop of Ultimate Tan Refreshment on the tops of your hands and feet instead of a full strength sunless tanner. This will create a natural color that is pure perfection!
  4. Q: How many layers of Moroccan Mineral can I apply at a time?
    A: Medium to dark skin tones can apply 1-2 thin layers in order to achieve an extra deep level of darkness. We recommend that fair and extra-light skin types refrain from applying more than 1 thin layer of Moroccan Mineral Dark Self-Tanning Lotion at a time.
  5. Q: What does Moroccan Mineral smell like?
    A: Moroccan Mineral has a clean, light tropical citrus scent that was specifically formulated to drastically reduce DHA development odor.
  6. Q: Will my Moroccan Mineral tan wash off when I shower?
    A: NO! The cosmetic color guide will wash off — so donít be alarmed. But underneath, your "real sunless tan" will be revealed. DHA and Erythrulose create a deep brown tanned appearance on the skin. The color guide does not play a part in the sunless tanning development process and is supposed to be washed off in the shower. Also, keep in mind that your sunless tan will continue to deepen in color for up to 24 hours after your wash off the color guide. DHA color is temporary, so your sunless color will gradually fade just like a sun tan.
  7. Q: What should I avoid when enjoying any sunless tan?
    Avoid Hair Removal:
    • Waxing
    • Hair inhibiting lotions or creams
    • Depilatory hair removers
    • Body hair bleaching

    Skin Care Products to Avoid:
    • Retinol products & skin bleaching/ fading products.
    • Acne treatment products containing benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, AHAís or BHAís.
    • Products containing alcohol or witch hazel.
    • Microdermabrasion
    • Facial scrubs masks and strips.

    Body Care Products to Avoid:
    • Loofahs, loofah gloves, shell or salt scrubs.
    • Body moisturizers or shower gels that contain petroleum or mineral oil bases.
    • Soaking in salt water (ocean), chlorine (hot tubs and pools) or warm baths can rapidly exfoliate your tan.
    • Do not rub your skin with a towel after bathing — pat dry only.
  8. Q: Should I exfoliate with Desert Mineral Detox Body Scrub while I have a sunless tan?
    A: Lightly exfoliating with Desert Mineral Detox Body Scrub can gently even out and brighten your skin tone without stripping your color. Properly caring for your sunless tan will improve your tan's overall beauty, color, fade and longevity. To learn more about how often to use Desert Mineral Detox Body Scrub, refer to our Recipes for Sunless Success.
  9. Q: Can I apply Moroccan Mineral on top of my spray tan?
    A: It is best to let your spray tan completely fade before applying Moroccan Mineral Dark Self-Tanner. Applying multiple layers of DHA to the skin often results in uneven fading and/or unnatural color.
  10. Q: Will swimming fade my tan?
    A: Your sunless tan may slightly fade after soaking or swimming in warm or cool water. If you typically enjoy hours of aquatic play, long hot showers, or soaking in baths, you may want to apply Ultimate Tan Refreshment in the evenings to revive your tanís depth and color by morning.
  11. Q: Do I have to wear gloves when I apply Moroccan Mineral?
    A: YES! Use appropriate applicator gloves when applying the product. Wearing gloves will prevent your palms and fingernails from tanning/staining. Snug fitting loves help ensure application ease and superior blending ability for professional tanning results with every application. If you have latex allergies, choose Nitrile or vinyl gloves.
  12. Q: What should I tan in?
    A: The choice is yours, but most prefer to do it in the nude. You may also choose to apply Moroccan Mineral Dark Self-Tanning Lotion while wearing an old, dark bathing suit.
