nordictan recommends

You might be sensitive to the natural ingredients, so you should also do a spot test on a sensitive area, such as the inside of your arm 24 hours before applying the self-tanner to your entire body to be sure that there will not be an allergic reaction to any of the ingredients. Always use a shower gel with a skin-friendly PH value of around 5.

DURING the treatment

Apply nordictan to the skin or use a tanning mitt/cotton pad. Gently apply nordictan to your skin with a tanning mitt, cotton pad, plastic glove or the like. Make sure to distribute nordictan thoroughly to areas with wrinkles, such as next to your eye, on your neck, etc. Do not apply nordictan to your lips - you can apply a lip gloss or lip balm before treatment. Light hair (blonde, grey, light brown) should be covered completely with a hood, towel, etc.

How to maintain your tan

• Use a shower gel without scrub • Avoid taking long hot baths • Dab your skin dry after showering or taking a bath • Moisturise the skin often - an after sun lotion or aloe vera lotion works well • You will find your skin becoming softer after each treatment

Facts about self-tanner products

Self-tanner products with DHA are an internationally recognised product that has, for example, been approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States, in all EU countries and also recommended by doctors from the Environmental Protection Agency and the Cancer Society as an alternative to solariums. nordictan complies with relevant legislation and REACH.

DHA is a natural sugar that has been used in the cosmetics industry for over 40 years.

DHA is a completely harmless substance and is a sugar substance derived from cane sugar, sugar palms or sugar beets.

DHA is known for being the best for self-tanning products. Self-tanner products usually have a sunscreen factor of 3-4 after application, so remember to still use sunscreen even though you are also using a self-tanner.

DHA generates a tan by reacting with the amino acids in keratin, which is a protein on the outermost layer of the skin. The keratin then becomes darker and creates a tanned look.
