Sunless Tanning Without Toxins

 It’s spring, and that means time for shorts, skorts, and dresses without hose.  This is the time of year I pull out my sunless tanner.  My go-to choices over the past several years have been Comodynes Self Tanning Towelettes for Face & Body or Jergens Natural Glow for body with Lancome Self Tan Flash Bronzer for the face.  These products deliver an easy to apply, even and natural looking tan. Awesome, I thought, until I starting looking at the ingredients; these products are also loaded with harmful chemicals.

Comodynes Self Tanning Towelettes contain 10 moderately to highly harmful ingredients, including hidden ingredients in the form of fragrance, and five different parabens – known to disrupt endocrine (hormone) function.  My Jergens / Lancome combo fared no better, delivering 22 moderately to highly harmful ingredients including two chemicals linked to cancer.


This spring I decided to rid myself of the harmful ingredients, and after doing some research, settled on trying out Beauty By Earth’s Self Tanner.  It is 100% free of known harmful ingredients and made in the USA by a team of parents inspired to keep harmful chemicals away from children.

I bought Beauty By Earth’s self tanner bundle for $33.99, which included a 7.5-ounce tube of self tanner lotion, an exfoliator mitt, and 2 application mitts – one for the body and one for the face.  For comparison, a 30-day pack of Comodynes self-tanning towelettes is $44.59, while my Jergen’s /Lancome combo is upwards of $50, with the bulk of the cost coming from the Lancome product ($42).


I tried the Beauty By Earth self-tanner before attending a wedding in Hawaii, and it worked amazingly well.  The color looked natural, and with just one application, I developed a healthy-looking tan that was free of streaks and lasted several days without coming off on clothing or sheets.  My biggest surprise in using the Beauty By Earth set was how much of a difference using the tanning mitts made.  The mitts make applying the lotion evenly much easier than bare hands, and you don’t have to worry about getting the product on your hands or under your nails.  Beauty By Earth is my new go-to for a toxin-free sunless tan.
