TanTowel® was incorporated in 1998 by Australian-born Lori Braun, the president and owner of Tan Towel®. Lori´s dream to create the ultimate self-tanning product came true with her creation of the patented process of the tan towel which she started researching in her home town of Melbourne, in 1997. Lori´s desire to produce a product that would provide a healthy, natural looking glow that was simple to apply, odorless, no mess, and would not streak, brought her to the United States where she was able to achieve all of the product standards and quality that she demanded. With continued advancement, the ever-growing Tan Towel® business has seen and will continue to see the same care and quality of products being added to our line. Lori´s vision has not only exceeded expectations for herself and millions of customers all over the world, but has helped in the education of the sun damage that leads to skin cancer.
Application Tips & Tricks
Start with Clean Dry Skin
Avoid body wash and soap products that contain oils, and creams, and lotions before applying the TanTowel®. These will block the self-tanning ingredients from developing.
Exfoliate your skin before application. This will help eliminate dry and dead skin cells for an even application.
With the towelette use a circular motion over all areas you would like color to develop. You cannot go over an area too much, but if you miss an area no color will produce.
Wash Your Hands
When you are applying your towelette, the formula is being absorbed into the palms of your hands. Washing your hands with soap, water and lathering for a few seconds will help so the formula does not develop.
You may get dressed as soon as your skin is dry to the touch. Upon application the towelettes will not stain your clothing.
For the next 4-6 hours while the formula is developing, stay clear from water, lotions or liquids on your skin! This will wash off the self-tanning solution from areas while the rest of your skin continues to tan.
Enjoy Your Color
Color will begin to develop within 3-4 hours, and may can continue to develop up to 6 hours later. TanTowel® typically lasts 4-7 days. You may extend the life of your tan by using TanTowel® On The Glow® moisturizer daily, and avoiding excessive exfoliation during the week.
It may take more than one application to achieve desired results.
