What Makes Star Luxury Tanning Products Unique?

Clinically Approved by Lee Garrett - The Garrett Clinic, Harley Street London - an industry first and a highly regarded accolade we are very proud of.

The Star Luxury Tanning brand was created for one purpose; to give sunbed users a safer and healthier alternative to achieve a perfect tan. Our mission is to reduce skin cancer rates caused by sunbeds and solariums as this currently sits a frightening 85%.

The majority of sunbed users choose to use this method of tanning instead of using traditional fake tanning products for many reasons. It was our aim to find and eliminate the top 5 "pet hates" associated with fake-tanning and introduce a unique, more natural-looking product range that would encourage sunbed users to return to a product from a bottle...

1. "Fake tan smells awful"   


No more biscuits!

We have eliminated the nasty “stale biscuit” smell associated with fake tan by scenting our female range with natural Watermelon oils and our male range has a scent identical to Bleu de Chanel aftershave, hugely popular with our female clients too! Our recently launched Unisex range has the fresh scent of Baby Powder and is definitely becoming the favourite scent of many.


 2. "Fake tan is orange"

The "orange tan" happens when the product used is saturated with harmful dyes and harsh chemicals, unlike Star products. All products developed by Star Luxury Tanning are made with all natural ingredients and are chemical and alcohol free, to protect and moisturise the skin rather than damage it.

The unique melanin-enhancing formula, exclusive to Star Luxury Tanning, works to penetrate the epidermis of the skin and encourage melanin in the same way UV and/or chemical tanning injections do but without the risks of chemical poisoning, skin cancer, aging skin, stomach problems, sunspots and the many other risks that come with unhealthy tanning options.

We have developed the perfect shade for each skin-tone; Shimmering Star for Redheads with Fair Skin-tones, Shining Star for Blondes with Light-Medium Skin-tones and Shooting Star for Brunettes with Olive-Dark Skin-tones.


3. "Fake tan is high maintenance"

Most self-tanning products begin to wear off after the 3rd or 4th day, leaving users with dry, scaly skin, resembling a snake. This leads to the client covering up their arms and legs and scrubbing their skin until it's red and sore in order to remove the patches.

Star Luxury Tanning products have a unique melanin-enhancing formula that guarantees natural looking tanned skin for up to nine days, with no patching during the fading process and the final layer easily removed by exfoliation before reapplying a fresh application.

No hassle and no fuss, just week by week flawless, safe tanning.


4. "Fake tan stains my clothing/bedding"

Due to the excessive dyes normally found in fake tanning products, it is almost impossible for users to wake up from their night's sleep to clean sheets and pyjamas. We have removed these dyes and to prevent transfer even further, we have developed a unique Colour Lock Moisturising Spray, exclusive to Star Luxury Tanning, which seals the product into the skin and forms a barrier to prevent excessive transfer.

Once the residue is washed off after the development is complete, there is minimal to zero colour transfer for you to be concerned about ruining clothing and bedding.

This makes Star Luxury Tanning the chosen brand of many Pageant Queens, Prom Girls and Bridal Parties.


5. "Fake tan sticks to my dry patches"

Star Luxury Tanning’s pH Neutralising Preparation Spray was developed to aid neutralise the skin's pH levels, in order to help reduce redness and moisturise dry areas before tan application.

During product testing, when used daily after showering in the morning and evening, it was proven to clear up various clients' lifelong psoriasis and eczema, leaving a perfect blank canvas to apply the tanning products to.

This also massively boosted the confidence of these clients as they had hidden their skin away for years and now had clear skin they were confident to expose.
