HAUT CACAO TAN MELANIN ENHANCING AMINO ACID COMPLEX

Some call it the ‘THE THIRD EYE’, while others call it ‘the pineal gland’ which is in the center of the brain. The Pineal gland is what produces MELANIN. Sunlight is important to our very sanity, because if we don’t get sunlight we would go crazy. There are four chemicals in MELANIN that does some pretty amazing things:

1. One helps to calms us down.
2. One helps us to relax,
3. One works to purify our blood, and the
4. Other helps with oxygen.

PROTECTIVE FUNCTION exposure to the sun has the potential to cause premature aging of the skin, as well as various skin cancers. These range in severity from basal cell carcinoma to melanoma, an aggressive cancer that spreads more rapidly than milder skin cancers. Your ability to withstand the potentially damaging effects of the sun’s ultraviolet radiation depends on the amount of melanin in your skin, which is determined by the number of melanocytes that are active beneath the surface of your skin. In even the most light-skinned people, the body’s melanocytes respond to sun exposure by producing more melanin, which creates the effect known as tanning. However, there is a limit to the degree of protection that melanin can provide, and it’s significantly higher in people with naturally darker skin.

YOUNGER SKIN people of color generally look younger than their lighter-skinned peers because of the higher levels of melanin in their skin. The increased melanin protects those who have it from short-term damage from the sun, as well as the long-term signs of aging, such as age spots, deep wrinkles and rough texture.

DESTROYS FREE RADICALS Free radicals have been implicated as the cause of widespread damage to human cells. Melanin has an incredibly important role in scavenging free radicals and preventing the skin damage they can cause. Melanin affects the delicately designed lipids that hold moisture in the stratum corneum. This is the outermost layer of the epidermis. If the skin loses its moisture, it becomes rigid and cracks.

FAQS

FAQS

HOW DOES THIS PRODUCT TAN MY SKIN?

It is a created with amino acids which increase melanin production without exposure to UV light. Melanin is the pigment which makes our skin turn brown. The more abundant our melanin levels, the darker we are able to tan. When used in conjunction with minimal sun exposure, the tanning result is significantly amplified, resulting in an intense, long lasting tan.

DOES THIS PRODUCT CONTAIN THE ACTIVE TANNING INGREDIENTS IN SUNLESS TANNING CREAMS?

No, this product creates a 100% real, authentic tan and there is no tint.

DOES CUSTOM CACAO TAN CONTAIN SUNSCREEN?

It contains red raspberry seed oil which provides sunscreen but we recommend being sun smart. It is important to always wear a sunscreen, protective clothing and avoid extended periods in the sun, to protect your precious skin from damage. You can apply our RASPBERRY ELIXIR over your CUSTOM CACAO TAN for natural sun protection.

WILL USING A SUNSCREEN REDUCE MY TANNING ABILITY?

It won’t reduce your tanning ability, it will in fact help your tan. Protecting the skin from burning, peeling and sun damage, sunscreen is vital when spending time outdoors.

DOES IT WORK ON FAIR SKIN?

Yes, it will work on all skin types. As everyone tans differently, results will differ from person to person. It will depend on your natural skin tone and natural sun tanning ability. Some people have seen results when using it with sun exposure in as quickly as 20 minutes; others who are fairer and have less melanin to begin with, may notice a slower increase.

IS CUSTOM CACAO TAN SAFE DURING PREGNANCY?

Our ingredients are plant oils and amino acids which are 100% natural and nourishing to the body. It is important for us to note that every woman and pregnancy is different and it is advised that you check with your individual doctor if you’re unsure. The base is made of food grade ingredients that you normally ingest. They will feed your skin! Be sure to use it in conjunction with your normal sunscreen protection.

HOW SHOULD MY CUSTOM CACAO TAN BE STORED?

Your CUSTOM CACAO TAN needs to be stored in a fridge to keep the active ingredients which encourage your body to tan naturally at their most potent. The consistency straight out of the fridge also prevents you from using too much (see APPLICATION for our suggested application tips).

HOW LONG UNTIL I START SEEING RESULTS?

This will differ from person to person. It will depend on your natural skin tone and natural sun tanning ability. Some people have seen results when using it WITH sun exposure in as quickly as 20 minutes; others who are fairer and have less melanin to begin with, may notice a slower increase.

WILL IT MAKE MY BEAUTY SPOTS, FRECKLES, MOLES OR PIGMENTATION DARKER?

Using CUSTOM CACAO TAN will affect your moles, freckles and pigmentation the same way the sun would. It will make them more evident as the melanin content increase also in freckles, moles and dark spots. Upon continued application you will notice your skin tone texture and smoothness will improve and even out and age spots fade as the skin around them gets darker and will sometimes disappear completely.

CAN I USE CUSTOM CACAO TAN IN A SUN TANNING BED?

The unique benefit of CUSTOM CACAO TAN is that it requires very little UV for rapid tanning. Our goal was to produce a product to help you tan without needing to be over-exposed to UV. You will be able to get excellent results with short healthy bursts of sun exposure. So to achieve great results, you don’t need to use tanning beds. We encourage a balanced approach to sun exposure to maximize benefit and minimize risk, so if you’re spending more than recommended daily amount of time in the sun when you’re using CUSTOM CACAO TAN, be sure to use sunscreen over the top. We recommends that you take a balanced approach to sun exposure to maximize benefit and minimize risk, and always wear a natural sunscreen like our RASPBERRY ELIXIR.

WILL IT FADE LIKE A REAL TAN?

Yes, it will fade like a real tan because it IS an authentically real tan. If you continue to use it on a daily basis (even indoors) it will continue working on your tan without the need for UV exposure so therefore you can potentially keep a level of tan all year round.

HOW LONG WILL MY TAN LAST?

This will be dependent on several things: your natural tanning ability, how long your real tan usually lasts, and how well you care for and maintain the health of your skin. Our unique plant based formula will definitely help to lengthen the life of your real tan because the amino acids will continue to stimulate your melanin production each time you apply it (even indoors). Also, our superfood ingredients have been carefully chosen to deliver nutrients, antioxidants and rich moisture deep into your skin. This will significantly increase the health of your skin, maintaining your tan further. Lastly, always wear sun protection. It will help to reduce / prevent sun damage and peeling. Peeling skin is unhealthy skin and will mean your real tan disappears more quickly.

CAN CUSTOM CACAO TAN BE APPLIED TO MY FACE?

Yes, CUSTOM CACAO TAN can most definitely be used on the face. The plant based ingredients, like organic aloe and organic coconut oil, can be nourishing with a variety of antioxidant benefits, as well as many others.
We spent time perfecting the consistency so it absorbs beautifully into the skin! It won’t clog your skin and it is fragrance-free. You can still apply your daily SPF on top for sun protection and it will not hinder the tan you get. A little goes a long way so use sparingly so you get the intended number of applications out of your CUSTOM CACAO TAN.

Upon receiving your CUSTOM CACAO TAN, make sure you store it in the fridge to keep the active ingredients potent. Because this unique tanning butter is not a sunless tanner which tints your skin from the outside, it is not as important to apply a generous, even layer of CUSTOM CACAO TAN all over. You also do not need to cover every inch of your body. Because you are tanning from the inside, you will still receive an even tan. You will even be able to fade tan lines if you are preparing for a special event. APPLY SPARINGLY, so that melatonin levels can slowly build. This will allow you to get as many full body applications as possible. A little goes a very long way because it melts into the skin just like coconut oil. After a shower and good exfoliation is the best time to apply it as it will absorb well into the skin. Apply to bare, dry skin. Do not forget to apply your usual sun protection over top after you have allowed it to absorb for about 10 minutes. Short bursts of sun will accelerate your growing tan. Apply every other day while building your tan. To maintain your tan, apply once a week.

surprising health benefits

Melanin is actually found in almost every organ of your body, and it is needed in order for your brain and nerves to work, for your eyes to see, and your cells to reproduce.

NATURE’S POTENT APHRODISIAC: You will notice aphrodisiac-like effects from our HAUT CACAO TAN. It makes sense that if your sex drive is robust and responsive, then generally speaking, you’re probably in pretty good shape hormonally.

NATURE’S POTENT ANTIDEPRESSANT: boosts levels of serotonin – the body’s natural happy hormone. That’s why we tend to feel happier and more energetic when the sun shines. Regular sun can stave off moderate depression, particularly if combined with exercise, such as a walk in the park. Exposure to sunlight can also benefit those suffering from nonseasonal depression, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, and in pregnant women with depression. Anxiety-related disorders and panic attacks have also been linked with changing seasons and reduced sunlight.

CREATES DEEP REM SLEEP: the amino acids in HAUT CACAO TAN are the building block for the body’s two main stress hormones adrenaline and noradrenaline, which are also neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are vital chemicals that affect mood and help nerve cells communicate with each other.

LIKE NATURE’S CHILL PILL: it can help improve mood, sleep and alertness, according to some research. Anxiety, mood swings and depression often begins and ends with an out of control stress response referred to as “fight or flight”. This amino acid blend is like an anti-depressant effect because of its ability to boost our mood. It is used to make adrenaline, noradrenaline and dopamine – chemicals called neurotransmitters, which all affect our mind. Stress depletes stores of amino acids simply because when we are under stress our need for certain amino acids increases and typically we require more than what we have in reserve. Stress also compromises the production and utilization of amino acids, many of which are vital for mood regulation.

RESTORES YOUR HAIR & EYE COLOUR: melanocytes are cells naturally produced by your body. These cells emit melanin to provide your hair with its natural color. As you age, melanin production slows, and you may suffer from gray hair. In fact, according to Women’s Fitness Magazine, 50 percent of women have at least half a head-full of gray hair by the time they are 50. Due to genetic makeup, gray hair may tend to be drier and more fragile as your age continues to progress. Increasing your melanin production will help restore natural hair color and vitality.

SUPPRESSES APPETITE: although known for its stimulatory effect on pigment cells, studies have shown that our melanocyte-stimulating hormone can also suppress appetite by acting on receptors in the hypothalamus in the brain. This effect is enhanced by leptin, a hormone released from fat cells.

WHY MANY SUFFER FROM NUTRIENT DEFICIENCY AND CREATE TOO LITTLE MELANIN: ALCOHOL reduces the absorption of food through the lining of the small intestine and interferes with the absorption of amino acids.
