Healthy Ingredients for a Beautiful, Natural Fake Tan.

DESCRIPTION
  • Transparent water-foam tanning mousse made with 2 naturally derived tanning ingredients
  • Develops into a beautiful bronze shade that fades naturally
  • Includes Pro-Vitamin B5 to help the skin retain moisture
  • Buildable coverage, so you can choose your intensity of tan
  • Free from Parabens and Phenoxyethanol
  • No colour guide, for a mess-free and super easy application
  • Non-smelly, natural fake tan

Why a tanning moose? Our Gradual Tanning Lotion was our first natural tanning product made specifically for sensitive skin. It's a gradual, self tanning cream that we still love, but also know not everyone is into that!

This creamy, dreamy self tanning mousse glides on s-MOO-th and absorbs faster than a cream, without losing the soft and hydrating feel. Our natural tanning formula contains Pro Vitamin B5 and Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, which helps the skin retain moisture. This makes it a great option for individuals with dry skin. Also buildable, so you can choose between a subtle sun-kissed glow, or a full blown ‘I spend all day at a nude beach’ kind of tan.

You can wash this formula off after 2 hours, but the colour will continue to develop for up to 24 hours into a bronzed, sunless tan.

INGREDIENTS

Aqua (H₂O’s Fancy Name), Dihydroxyacetone, Erythrulose, Dimethyl Isosorbide, Propanediol, Decyl Glucoside, Betaine, Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5), Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Caprylhydroxamic Acid (and) Caprylyl Glycol (and) Glycerin, Fragrance (Phthalate Free - Vanilla), Citric Acid.

Because we make our products for our families, we have a strict ingredient philosophy that excludes ingredients like Parabens, Phenoxyethanol and penetration enhancers.

We show all of the ingredients we use in our products on our website, not just the pretty ones. That way you know exactly what's in each one, and can get in touch if you have any more questions.

Please be aware that the ingredients we use in our formulas may be updated occasionally and therefore vary from time to time. Please refer to the ingredient list on the product packaging for the most up-to-date and relevant list of ingredients.

FAQs

How long does this tanning foam take to develop?

Our Natural Tanning Mousse contains two natural tanning ingredients, DHA and Erythrulose, which can be washed off after 2 hours of applying. Your colour will look its best after 24 hours, so we suggest applying the tan a day or two before special events. This will also allow you to reapply for achieving darker results.

How dark is the shade going to be?

We designed our Natural Tanning Range to give you a natural-looking tan that varies from person to person. Results will depend on your natural skin colour and undertones. This tan gives you a sun-kissed glow that makes people think you've been relaxing by the seaside. Please note, this is not performance fake tan.

Will I look orange?

We’ve done our best to avoid all hints of orange in this formula! The exact shade and depth of the tan will vary from person to person though, depending on your natural skin type and colour.

What does this smell like?

If you're like us, you're probably tired of the coconut scent often used in tanning products to cover up the smell. We chose our signature MooGoo vanilla scent because it is a special blend of fragrant oils that are phthalate-free (the ingredients in fragrance that often cause skin reactions).

How long will this last, will it go blotchy?

Our formula has skin-hydrating ingredients like Vitamin B5 and Aloe Vera to help your skin fade evenly and naturally. To maintain the quality of your tan, exfoliate your skin 24 hours before applying the tanning solution.

After applying and rinsing off the tan, make sure to moisturise your skin regularly. The more hydrated you keep your skin, the more naturally your tan will fade! Luckily, we make plenty of moisturisers that do just that.

We also recommend applying moisturisers to rough or dry areas before applying your tan. This includes your hands, wrists, feet, ankles, elbows and knees! Our Tanning range can be used on the face and body.

Does it stain your sheets?

From the feedback we gathered during testing, our Tanning range is not sheet-staining because of the clear formula. To be on the safe side though, wait until your tan is fully dry before wearing loose-fitting pyjamas to bed. This will help protect both your sheets and your tan.

Why is there no colour guide? How do I know where I’ve applied it?

We specifically formulated our Tanning range without a colour guide to keep things mess and stain free! Because the mousse is a white foam and dampens your skin, you’ll still be able to tell where you’ve applied it as you go.

For best results, apply your tan in sections with our Tanning Mitt. Start with your feet and legs, then move on to your torso and back, and finish with your arms, neck and hands. This will ensure that you evenly cover all areas of your body.

The mousse is fast drying (about 5-10 minutes). If you prefer a darker tan, this is when you can apply a second coat.

Is this suitable for irritated and /or sensitive skin types?

Yes! We made this range for people with sensitive skin who usually avoid traditional tanning products due to the chemicals and potential reactions. We use no Parabens, Phenoxyethanol or other nasties and have instead included skin hydrating ingredients.

Most tanning products break me out – is this non-comedogenic?

Yep! We make our entire Tanning range without using mineral oils, which commonly cause breakouts in skincare products.

What’s the difference between a mousse and a water?

We made a Tanning Mousse and a Tanning Water to cater to different skin types and application preferences. Our Tanning Mousse contains Vitamin B5 and has a creamy texture. It provides extra hydration, which is perfect for people with dry skin.

Our Tanning Water is lightweight and quick-drying, feeling just like water. Perfect for those who are short on time and don't want to wait around in their birthday suit!

Will Sunscreen remove my fake tan?

The quick answer…yes, some types of sunscreen may. The slightly longer and more accurate answer is that there are two broad types of ways to get sun protection. The first uses a physical block like Zinc or Clear Zinc that is designed to cover the skin and reflect off rays. The other type uses UV filters, and these are designed to absorb into the top layer of skin. To do this they are formulated with penetration enhancers.

So as you can imagine, if a product is designed to absorb into the top layer of skin where your fake tan also is, and then get washed off, then some of your fake tan may also get washed away with it. So, at least on paper, a physical sunscreen probably wouldn’t wash off much fake tan. A UV filter-based sunscreen, because it has penetration enhancers, probably would.

In any case, we would say to wait about 12-24 hours after fake tanning before applying any sunscreen. And in that time please don’t lay out in the sun either!

Is this fake tan cruelty-free?

Yes! All MooGoo Skin Care products are cruelty-free.

    Works very well… almost too well! Haha

    I did not think this would tan you so easily and quickly! So be careful haha if you don’t fully wash your hands after and make sure you get in between your fingers with soap and they will stain quickly! Haha the colour is a tad too yellowish for me but would look lovely on already a little tanned skin in summer and after summer to keep it topped up for as long as possible. The only thing I was finding is that I have quite large pores in some areas which it was settling in if you look very close but you would have to have hawk eyes to see 🥹 I’m just being too picky maybe. It smells soooo divine you could eat it! but it does work incredibly well, so only use a very small amount especially on face, and make sure you really rub it in evenly. I also found that I had to use my milk moisturiser first on ares like my face otherwise it tends to settle a little on any dry patches of skin. Otherwise it works very well! And does give you a nice golden glow 👌💫
