The use of tanning lotion is essential to protect your skin while tanning; using the right tanning lotion is the key to a great tan. Xtreme Tan offers the best lines of indoor tanning lotion–Australian Gold, Swedish Beauty, Designer Skin & California Tan.


Premium tanning lotions & sunless tanning products offer a refractive prism of natural oils including sunflower oil and hemp seed oil as well as aromatherapy essential oils and aloe-vera gel. The refractive prism causes a magnification of the ultraviolet light that reaches your skin, helping your tan to get intensified. Given the same amount of time, people who avoid using tanning products are likely to achieve a lower level of tanning as compared to people who used the product.


Healthy skin is of utmost importance for acquiring a dark tan. Indoor as well as outdoor tanning products are specially formulated to provide the skin with vital moisture that is necessary before tanning and also after tanning. Healthier skin has the capacity to hold on to a tan for a longer period of time than unhealthy skin. This gives you the added benefit of being able to achieve a darker, deeper tan by building upon the existing foundation.

Dry skin on the other hand tends to flake, peeling away layers of tan with it. Sunless tanning products and tanning lotions keep your skin constantly moisturized, which is essential during the tanning process. These lotions contain a host of vital ingredients including vitamins, natural oils, minerals, anti-oxidants, natural botanical extracts and aloe vera; all of which help boost your tanning efforts. People who do not use tanning lotions and other sunless tanning products do not get the valuable benefits that these nutrients offer.

Tanning without this extra support causes the skin to get dry faster, which causes the tan to fade away in a shorter period of time as the dried skin flakes away.

Some of the key skin conditioning ingredients includes:

  • Vitamins
  • Essential Oils
  • Natural Butters
  • Hemp Seed Oil
  • Natural Botanical Extracts
  • Liposomal Tyrosine Complexes
  • Riboflavin
  • Copper
  • L-Tyrosine
  • Assorted Minerals

These ingredients help to maximize your tanning efforts. Tanning products and indoor tanning lotions also contain several essential skin conditioning components that boost your tanning endeavors by providing vital moisturization and by enhancing the tanning intensity.
