A Bit Hippy Gradual Tanning Moisturiser 220g
Looking for a year-round, sun-kissed glow? Leave the tell-tale fake tan smells, chemicals and UV rays behind and say hello to a beautiful, natural tan that will leave you looking and feeling like a radiant, bronzed goddess!
Some sunless tanning creams can have a tainted reputation for either being too orange, or full of chemicals. We didn't want to be part of that crowd. So we combined two natural glucose based ingredients (Ethyulose and DHA) which simply stain the outer layer of your skin. We've also used healthy, hydrating oils like Borage and Apricot Kernel to keep your skin moisturised, which helps to create a long-lasting, even tan.
The Science Behind
Plant-based tanning ingredient made out of a three-carbon sugar. When the sugar comes into contact with proteins naturally occurring on the outer layer of the skin, a chemical reaction is triggered which creates a temporary browning effect on the skin cells.
Did you know?
The browning effects of DHA were discovered incidentally in 1930 during attempts to treat diabetes with oral doses of DHA. The results of the trial found a secondary effect of a deep yellow colouring to the gums, followed by browning of the skin when the substance accidentally came into contact with it!!

Apply like a normal moisturiser on all areas you wish to develop a healthy tan on. This cream is white, and a tan will gradually develop over a few hours. Allow it to dry before applying your clothes. Wash hands thoroughly after use…unless you want brown palms too? Wait at least 3 hours before washing or swimming. Apply daily until the desired colour is reached and reapply whenever needed.
Works best after exfoliating so make sure to check out our Exfoliating Bar- Pink Clay & Pumice.
