How does ASYANA Natural Sunless Tan work?

ASYANA Natural Sunless Tan works as follows:
Process 1: Bronze Colour Guide: ASYANA Natural Sunless Tan contains a small amount of bronze colour guide to ensure your tan applies evenly and no areas on your skin are missed. The bronze colour guide is made caramel and natural food colours. This colour is not permanent and gently rinses away in your first shower after tanning.

Process 2: Developed Bronze Tan: When ASYANA Natural Sunless Tan is applied to your skin, the active tanning ingredients (DHA and Erythrulose) take 4 – 6 hours to completely develop. The active ingredients (DHA and Erythrulose) react with the protein layer (top layer) of your skin to give your skin a bronzed and tanned appearance This bronzed colour lasts up to 7 days.

What colour will the tan look like on me?

ASYANA Natural Sunless Tan, will work very gently and naturally with your own skin tone to develop into a truly natural looking tan.
When using the ASYANA Bronze Tanning Lotion, we would recommend that you:

  • Use a small amount of lotion for very fair skin
  • Use a medium amount of lotion for medium/ olive skin

If you would like to get an even deeper tan, then we would recommend re-applying your tanning lotion again the next day. This will ensure an even, beautiful, deep, dark tan

When using the spray tan, we have developed two shades of solution to guarantee perfectly, natural sunless tan results:

  • Level II Dark Bronze Tanning Solution for beautiful, bronze tan
  • Level III Ultra Bronze Tanning Solution for a deep, dark bronze tan

What are DHA and Erythrulose?

DHA(Dihydroxyacetone) and Erythrulose are the active ingredients found in ASYANA’s Natural Sunless Tan. They are extracted from natural sugars such as sugar cane and beetroot.

Most sunless tanners use DHA only, why does ASYANA Natural Sunless Tan use a DHA and Erythrulose combination?

ASYANA has conducted extensive research* and has found a DHA and Erythrulose combination ensures:

  • Your tan will last longer, up to 7-10 days (as opposed to a 4-day tan with DHA only)
  • Your tan develops gradually on to your skin>
  • Greater hydration for your skin (30% less dry than with DHA alone)

From the graph below, we can see that DHA peaks after 2 days (therefore lasting a maximum of 4 days), while the DHA and Erythrulose combination peaks at 4 days (lasting up to 7 days):

What do the difference in strength between the Bronze Tanning Lotion and the Spray Tan Solution?

The DHA / Erythrulose strength of our sunless tanning products are:

Bronze Tanning Lotion: 10% DHA + Erythrulose
Level II Dark Bronze Tanning Solution – 10% DHA + Erythrulose
Level III Ultra Bronze Tanning Solution – 12% DHA + Erythrulose

What is the purpose of Antioxidants, Anti inflammatory ingredients, Aloe Vera and Essential Oils?

ASYANA uses these ingredients to:

  • Freshen and revitalise your skin
  • Calm, sooth and condition your skin
  • Deeply hydrate and nourish your skin

What are paraben preservatives? Why has ASYANA not used paraben preservatives?

Paraben preservatives are very common preservatives found in everyday skin care products. ASYANA is aware of a particular study indicating paraben preservatives were found in human breast tumors. Knowing this information, we refused to manufacture any of our products with paraben preservatives. Your wellbeing is our Number 1 priority.

How should I prepare my skin to receive ASYANA Natural Sunless Tan?

Prepare your skin by gently exfoliating and removing dry skin cells (focus on elbows, knees and back of heels). Remove any dirt and makeup before receiving your tan. ASYANA  Pre Tan Exfoliate’s gentle cleansing, soothing and nourishing ingredients prepare your skin perfectly.

How do I look after my ASYANA Natural Sunless Tan for maximum results?

Moisturise your skin daily. Avoid scrubbing/ exfoliating your skin and avoid staying in saunas or swimming pools for an excessive period of time. ASYANA’s Tan Extender contains small amounts of tanning agents, moisturising and nourishing ingredients that extend the life of your tan even further.

How long will the tan last on my skin?

Generally your tanning lotion or spray tan alone will last up to 7 days. However we’ve found that by following your Self Tanning Kit (i) Prepare you skin, (ii) Apply your tan (ii) Maintain and maximize your tan; your tan can last up to 2.5 weeks.

You should note however that while these tan times are what you would expect, there are many reasons that will prevent how long your tan will last:

  • Long showers/baths, shaving/waxing, swimming, or excessive exercise which may cause sweating will also reduce the life of your tan
  • The current condition of your skin, if it is very dry and exfoliates naturally very quickly then you can expect your tan will not last as long

How long will it take for the tan to develop on my skin?

We recommend keeping your sunless tan on your skin for 6-8 hours for a beautiful natural tan.

How do I apply my tanning lotion?

It is very easy to apply your tanning lotion. Pump out a small amount of lotion into the palm of your skin, you have been provided with a pair of gloves in your Bronze Tanning Lotion so you can protect your palms, then gently massage the lotion into your skin in a circular motion. You will be able to see exactly where you have applied the tanning lotion (by the bronze colour guide).

Can I apply tanning lotion on my face?

Yes, you can apply the ASYANA Bronze Tanning Lotion on your face. We would recommend rubbing a small amount of lotion onto the palm of your hands and gently patting on your face. Alternatively, you can squeeze a small drop of tanning lotion into your moisturizer and lightly apply on your face.

Is ASYANA Natural Sunless Tanning Range safe?

Yes, all of our ingredients comply with the FDA and EU cosmetic standards. Our tanning products have been formulated with the correct ingredients at the correct level. We still always recommend that you read the label before use and complete a patch test if you haven’t used this product before. If you are pregnant or suffering from severe skin conditions, please seek medical advice before use.

Can I use this tanning lotion or spray tan if I’m pregnant or breast feeding?

While all of our ingredients are natural, comply with the FDA and EU Cosmetic Directive, we would still always highly recommend that you consult your doctor/ obstetrician before using either the tanning lotion or spray tan. Pregnancy and breast feeding your child is such a magical gift, however with such an amazing gift your body is going through so many hormonal changes that your safety is our number 1 priority – So if you’re thinking of using ASYANA while pregnant or breast feeding, we’ll be happy to provide you with a detailed ingredients list for you to discuss with your medical professional.

If the bronze colour guide rubs off onto my clothes, will it come out?

Yes! Most definitely. Our products are all water based, therefore the caramel and food colours wash out very easily.
In fact, this is a true story. At one of our ASYANA trade shows/ spray tan demonstrations, we all wore white uniforms. By the end of the day after completing close to 200 spray tan demonstrations, our clothes were well and truly covered in spray tan solution! What did we do? Just washed our clothes as normal and the very next day out white clothes/ uniforms were back to their original colour (white)! So yes, the colour guide easily washes away.

How do I remove an old fake tan?

The way to remove your sunless tan as quickly as possible is to exfoliate your skin, wax or shave and we’ve also found out that a good, long soak in the tub will work wonders in removing your fake tan.

Why has ASYANA decided to donate a percentage of profits to UNICEF, SunsSCHine (Sydney Children’s Hospital) and Melanoma Institute Australia?
