Details

With just one drop of Extra Sun, you can achieve an instant bronzing glow effect. The Extra Sun tanning drops are enriched with natural caramel-colored minerals for an immediate effect. DHA, in combination with dimethyl isosorbide, erythrulose, and several powerful antioxidants, provides an even, smooth, and long-lasting natural skin color. The innovative blend of ingredients also contains extra moisturizing elements and penetration enhancers, resulting in a long-lasting hydrated and bronzed effect.

 

The product also includes a combination of acetyl tyrosine and extract of the Monk's pepper berries, which accelerate and enhance skin pigmentation. This helps to prolong, maximize, and accelerate your tan. Gradually building up a natural, healthy-looking tan without exposure to the sun is made possible with Extra Sun tanning drops.

How to use

Blend a few drops into your favorite face cream or serum and apply to the skin. Increase the number of drops depending on desired tan strength. These tanning drops were developed to perfectly match the skin complexion obtained with the Golden Hour serum; therefore, we advise using this perfect pair together for the ultimate IOAN glow.

How many drops? The active ingredients in the Extra Sun are very concentrated. Start with 1 drop for a subtle bronzed glow. Gradually build up to 2-3 drops depending on the desired tan strength.

How long does it last? After 4 hours the darkening effect has occurred, the tan will not sweat off or wash away with soap or water. It will fade gradually over 3 to 4 days. If you want to stay tanned you can safely build with extra drops of the Extra Sun. Exfoliation with AHA, prolonged water submersion, or heavy sweating can lighten the tan, as these all contribute to rapid dead skin cell exfoliation.

Key ingredients

DHA

Dihydroxyacetone, also known as DHA or glycerone, is a naturally occurring 3-carbon sugar. The effect of DHA tanning is caused by its reaction with skin-surface proteins found in the skin’s upper layers or epidermis. As the active tanning ingredient, DHA regulates the intensity of skin staining. We use a high concentration of DHA which allows a darker skin-staining that can be effective for all skin types. 

Glycerin

Glycerin benefits the skin barrier by pulling water from the air to keep the skin hydrated and minimize water loss. Glycerin can remain in the skin for a while, which helps the skin retain moisture even when exposed to damaging environmental aggressors like pollution.

Dimethyl isosorbide

Boosts the performance of DHA. Dimethyl isosorbide provides advanced self-tanning efficacy by ensuring the effective delivery of DHA into the upper layers of the epidermis. By increasing the level of DHA delivery and its depth of penetration, it promotes rapid colour development and creates a deeper, longer-lasting tan. An improved distribution of DHA throughout the epidermis also results in a more even colour and helps to minimize streaking. 

Melanobronze

Melanobronze is a tan activator that is based on an extract of the monk’s pepper berries which have a ß-endorphin-like activity that regulates melanin synthesis. This active ingredient also contains a tyrosine derivative to further boost melanin synthesis. In placebo-controlled clinical studies, MelanoBronze was shown to increase the tanning of the skin in a dose-dependent way either with or without simultaneous UV exposure. Therefore, melanobronze improves the skin’s UV defense, enhances natural skin tan, and ensures your skin is sun-ready with a protective tan. 

Erythrulose

Is a natural keto-sugar that reacts with the amino acids of keratin in the upper layers of the epidermis to produce a brownish coloration. The reaction of erythrulose with skin is slow and gentle, which makes it possible to produce a natural, long-lasting, even tan without stripes. Furthermore, erythrulose works in synergy with DHA leading to a more reliable and promising self-tanning experience.

Natpure Col Brown

is an acid-proof caramel obtained by controlled heat treatment of glucose in presence of ammonium compounds. This natural dye imparts a clear water-based solution.
