Cellex-C Bio-tan Sunless Tanning Gel

This oil-free, peach colored gel has the benefits of DHA and erythrulose . . . the winning combination for a self-tanning product. These two self-tanning ingredients react with the keratin in the stratum corneum to form brown polymers called melanoids. DHA works a little faster than the erythrulose. This particular combination of ingredients promote a more long lasting, natural tan color that is less likely to streak. Say good-bye to the unmistakable orange glow of a bad self-tanning product.

Dihydroxyacetone can be dehydrating, but erythrulose helps to solve the problem. It is highly recommended to keep the skin hydrated to slow down the sloughing off of the dead skin cells and maintain a good tan. The hyaluronic acid in this product helps to boost the hydration of the skin. The lecithin functions as an anti-oxidant and helps to protect and keep the skin soft.

This is an incredible self-tanner, but there is a little more to the application than other self-tanning products. The gel is applied, left to dry on the skin for about twenty minutes, and then worked into the rest of the skin. After three or four hours a moistened cloth can be used to remove the excess product, eliminating the potential for color to transfer to your clothing. It might seem a little finicky, but the results will definitely hit the wow factor.
