What Makes Star Luxury Tanning Products Unique?

Clinically Approved by Lee Garrett - The Garrett Clinic, Harley Street London & Frances Turner - The Frances Turner Traill Clinic in Scotland - 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 range with unique scents. Our scents are named after luxurious products, like our most popular scent, named after a fruity cocktail, Melon Splash. Our male clients favour our Baby Powder scented products while our newest scent, Chocolate Truffle, is expected to be the guilty pleasure of many. 


 2. "Fake tan is orange and looks fake"

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 natural and organic ingredients and are chemical and alcohol free, to protect and moisturise the skin rather than damage it.

The melanin-enhancing formula, found exclusively in our upcoming Express Tanning range (launching soon), works to penetrate the epidermis of the skin and encourage melanin production 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.  We have also recently launched our Shadow Star range, an Ultra Dark blend designed to give the darkest skin tones a flawless finish and help to eliminate the appearance of pigmentation flaws and skin conditions like Vitiligo.


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 skin-nourishing 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 harsh dyes from our formula to reduce the transfer onto clothing and bedsheets.  To prevent transfer even further, we have also 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 8 hour development is complete, there should be minimal to zero colour transfer or any mess for you to clean.

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 neutralise the skin's pH levels, in order to help reduce redness and moisturise dry areas before a fresh tan application.

During product testing, when used daily after showering in the morning and evening for a month, it was proven to completely 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.

The pH Neutralising Preparation Spray contains no DHA, harsh chemicals or alcohol and is suitable for use on babies and pregnant women.

Star Luxury Tanning is Vegan Friendly, is formulated with Organic and Natural ingredients and supports PETA's Beauty Without Bunnies campaign. We will never test on animals. 

We are also the only tanning brand to ever be tested and clinically-approved by top skin experts in both The Garrett Clinic, Harley Street, London and The Frances Turner Traill Clinic in Scotland.
