Skin Preperation:

Gatineau Tan Accelerator:

Want to get the best tan you can?  All you need is the Gatineau Tan Accelerator, with its exclusive complex of avant-garde active ingredients MelatogenineTM and Dormin, It helps skin cells appear exceptionally more supple and youthful for longer.  It also provides effective action against the appearance of sun-induced hyper keratinization (age spots) of the skin.

Using the Gatineau Tan Accelerator helps the tan to develop faster with a radiant, even and deeper colour.  Apply daily for a minimum of 2 weeks before sun exposure, and continues to use for several weeks after sun exposure.

St Tropez Enhancing Body Polish:

Preparation and maintenance are critical steps in achieving and prolonging the perfect sun tan. Every tan should begin with a blank canvas of perfectly smooth, soft skin. Many scrubs contain ingredients that can degrade or break down your tan but the St Tropez Prep & Maintain Tan Enhancing Body Polish is specially formulated to work with self tan. It contains spherical beads to exfoliate without scratching or damaging the skin, ensuring your colour will be completely even and streak-free.
