WHICH MELANOBOOST WORKS BEST?

All Melanoboost products give the same result when it comes to a sun tan, they all contain the same amount of our exclusive peptide complex and active ingredients. So when spending time in the sun it is personal preference on which product you would like to use.

The orange and green bottles bottle (Plus Bronzing) contain a sunless tanning agent which will give you a boost of a temporary fake tan while you are developing your real tan. So if you’re happy for a boost of sunless colour, this one is fantastic.

If you prefer NOT to have sunless colour (fake tan) and want just a SUN tan - the yellow or blue is better.

Then it just comes down to personal preference on whether you prefer an oil or lotion. Our packs are a great choice if you want to try multiple products.

DOES MELANOBOOST WORK ON FAIR SKIN?

Yes, Melanoboost is designed to help increase melanin in all skin types and tones.

The biomimetic peptide used within Melanoboost is specially indicated for people with fair skin that want to tan but can’t spend longer periods of time in the sun. It is these individuals who will benefit most from using Melanoboost.

Melanoboost was developed to work without sun exposure to boost melanin levels in ALL skin types and tones, then when your melanin levels are boosted less time in the sun is required to tan effectively.

The results determined by you will also come down to your expectations. For example, if someone is very fair to begin with, they shouldn’t expect to see results like an olive skin tone. Melanoboost is designed to help you achieve your best tan possible.

We have had great reviews from our fair skinned customers you can read our real customers reviews on our product pages.

DO MELANOBOOST PEPTIDE SUN TANNING PRODUCTS CONTAIN FAKE TAN?

The coral and green bottles bottle (Plus Bronzing) contain a sunless boosting agent which will give you a boost of a temporary fake tan while you are developing your real tan. These products are designed to give your skin a sunless tan while the peptides work to help increase your natural melanin levels so you can achieve a naturally darker sun tan with less time in the sun.

The +Bronzing Lotion and Oil will not show colour immediately when applied to the skin,  our +Bronzing oil and lotion goes on clear so it will not stain your clothing or bedding.  The sunless tan will start to develop colour on the skin after a few hours. The +Bronzing acts as a gradual tan so after applying for a few days consecutively the colour will darken substantially. After applying the +Bronzing products make sure to rinse your hands after application.

If you prefer not to have any added fake tan and only want to achieve a natural sun tan, the yellow and blue bottles are better as they do not contain any added +Bronzing and will only help to increase your natural tan.

IS MELANOBOOST WATER RESISTANT?

Melanoboost will absorb into your skin once you apply it, but if you are swimming or sweating excessively we recommend to reapply it. Remember that you only need a small amount of our oils and lotions for them to be effective.

IS MELANOBOOST THE SAME AS TANNING INJECTIONS / MELANOTAN?

With the introduction of peptides into skin care products, there has been much interest about the difference between Melanoboost and tanning injections, most commonly known as Melanotan, Melanotan II or MT2. Tanning injections are often associated with negative side effects so it is important for us to point out that there are distinct differences between Melanoboost and tanning injections.

Our range contains a revolutionary topically appiled peptide designed to boost melanin and therefore increase sun tanning ability and time in the sun. There are no know side effects of our Peptide Complex. We spent years perfecting our formulation to produce a premium product that nothing compares to. Our Peptide Complex has allowed us to introduce this new and effective concept to the sun tanning industry and it has changed the way people tan.

Melanoboost is an Australian based company and has no affiliation with Melanotan.

CAN YOU USE MELANOBOOST IN A SUN BED, SOLARIUM, TANNING BED?

Yes, you can use Melanoboost in a tanning bed, the results will be the same as UV exposure from the sun. We have had great feedback from our customers that use our Lotion in a tanning bed as it doesn’t leave residue on the skin.

If you’re going to use the oil in a tanning bed, make sure you apply it before your session so the oil doesn’t transfer onto the acrylic bed.

Melanoboost only requires short periods of UV exposure to be effective so make sure you limit the amount of time spent in the sun bed.

Melanoboost doesn’t contain SPF so we recommend you apply your usual SPF over the top.

CAN I USE MELANOBOOST ON MY FACE?

Yes, all Melanoboost products can be used on your face.

The coral and green bottles (Plus Bronzing) contain a sunless boosting agent which will give you a boost of a temporary fake tan while you are developing your real tan. So if you’re happy for a boost of sunless colour, these are fantastic.

If you use the +Bronzing Oil or Lotion on your face, we recommend to apply a thin layer and avoid getting excess in your hairline and eyebrows, especially if you have blonde hair so the fake tan develops out to be even.

If you prefer NOT to have any added sunless colour and want just a SUN tan - the yellow or blue is better.

We think the Melanoboost Lotion (blue bottle) is perfect to use on your face as it is a light weight moisturiser that doesn't leave a residue on the skin so it’s perfect for daily use.

Melanoboost does’t contain SPF so make sure you apply sunscreen over the top of your Melanoboost when spending time outdoors.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE OIL AND THE LOTION?

Choosing an oil or a lotion is just a matter of personal preference.

There is an obvious difference in texture between an oil and a lotion, and how they look and feel on the skin. Some people may like the way that oils have the ability to stay on the surface of the skin for a longer period of time, particularly during UV exposure when intense moisturisation counts the most. They may also like the way that oils have the unique ability to instantly enhance a natural sun tan with a glistening luminocity that’s hard to beat.

Others may prefer the fast absorption rate and the light, weightless feel of a water based lotion, especially pre and post sun exposure when feeling refreshed and replenished is key to comfortable skin, and looking visibly hydrated is paramount to a healthy looking natural sun tan.

All Melanoboost products give the same results when it comes to a sun tan, so it just comes down to personal preference on whether you prefer an oil or lotion. Our packs are a great choice if you want to try multiple products.

DO MELANOBOOST PRODUCTS CONTAIN NUTS?

All Melanoboost products are nut free, you will find detailed ingredient lists on each of our product pages. We do use Buriti Oil in our oil products, Buriti Oil comes from the Buriti fruit however, the fruit does contain a nut at the centre. We don’t use the nut in our products but it may be something to consider.
 
Our Melanoboost Lotions (blue and green bottle) does not contain Buriti Oil so if you’re unsure this may be the best option for you.
 
All Melanoboost ingredients are listed on each of the product pages under the “LUXE OIL” tab, and the Lotion ingredients are under “THE LOTION BENEFITS” tab.

DOES MELANOBOOST AFFECT TATTOO'S?

Melanoboost has no affect on tattoos. Melanoboost products are designed to nourish and hydrate the skin which is beneficial for the appearance of tattoos.

To our knowledge (tattoos are not our expertise), tattoos can be affected (faded) by sun exposure, so if you are spending time in the sun, protect your skin and tattoos accordingly by using an spf.

WHERE ARE MELANOBOOST PRODUCTS MADE?

All Melanoboost products are made in Melbourne, Australia.

DO MELANOBOOST PRODUCTS CONTAIN SUNSCREEN?

Our product range doesn't contain sunscreen. Melanoboost recommends 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. Apply your sunscreen over the top of your Melanoboost.

WILL USING SUNSCREEN ON TOP OF MY MELANOBOOST 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.

We highly recommend the use of sunscreen and sun protection conjunction with all Melanoboost products.

DOES MELANOBOOST STILL WORK IF I HAVE FAKE TAN ON?

Absolutely. Just make sure your fake tan is fully developed and you've had your first shower before you apply your Melanoboost.

If you love using fake tan, the coral and green bottles bottle (Plus Bronzing) will give you a boost of a temporary fake tan while you are developing your real tan. These products are designed to give your skin a sunless tan while the peptides work to help increase your natural melanin levels so you can achieve a naturally darker sun tan with less time in the sun.

IS MELANOBOOST SAFE TO USE WHILE PREGNANT AND BREASTFEEDING?

The Melanoboost range consists of topically applied products that works in the areas it is applied. The Peptide Complex is not systemic, meaning it won't enter the bloodstream. So it is fine during pregnancy and breastfeeding. As with all skin care products, during breastfeeding apply outside areas that would come in contact with a babies mouth.

It is important for us to note that all women and pregnancies are different and it is advised that you check with your individual doctor if you're unsure.

When you are pregnant, increased hormone levels can c cause your skin to become more sensitive in the sun, be sure to use our products in conjunction with sun protection when spending time outdoors.

HOW LONG UNTIL I START SEEING RESULTS?

Melanoboost was developed to work without sun exposure to boost melanin levels in ALL skin types and tones, then when your melanin levels are boosted less time in the sun is required to tan effectively.

Tanning results will differ from person to person depending on your natural skin tone and your natural sun tanning ability. A couple of things should be taken into account when setting expectations and determining results - your natural skin tone and your natural sun tanning ability.

Some people have seen results when using it with sun exposure in as quickly as 20 minutes; others who have a fairer skin type with less melanin to begin with, may notice a slower increase.

The results determined by you will also come down to your expectations. For example, if someone is very fair to begin with, they shouldn’t expect to see results like an olive skin tone. Melanoboost is designed to help you achieve your best tan possible.

WILL MELANOBOOST MAKE MY FRECKLES, MOLES OR PIGMENTATION DARKER?

Using Melanoboost in itself will not affect moles, freckles and pigmentation, however UV exposure may make these darker spots more evident.

Melanoboost recommends that you take a balanced approach to sun exposure to maximise benefit and minimise risk. Limit your UV exposure times and always wear sunscreen when enjoying your time in the sun.

WILL MY MELANOBOOST TAN FADE LIKE A REAL TAN?

Yes, it will fade like a real tan because it IS a real tan!

Melanoboost Peptide Sun Tanning Oil and Lotions will continue to assist melanin production each time you apply it, so with continued daily use combined with regular incidental UV exposure, you can potentially keep a level of tan all year round.

HOW LONG WILL MY TAN LAST?

This will be dependent on a few 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.

Melanoboost will definitely help to lengthen the life of your real tan because the peptide will continue to stimulate your melanin production each time you apply it (even indoors). Also, our 8 skin food oils have been specially selected to deliver nutrients, antioxidants and extreme moisture into your skin.

This will significantly increase the health of your skin, maintaining your tan further. Lastly, always wear sunblock. It will help to reduce / prevent sun damage and peeling. Peeling skin is unhealthy skin and will mean your real tan disappears more quickly.

I HAVE PALE SKIN AND ONLY BURN, NEVER TAN. WILL MELANOBOOST WORK FOR ME?

Yes, Melanoboost is designed to work on all skin types and tones.

Tanning results will differ from person to person depending on your natural skin tone and your natural sun tanning ability. If you are fair skinned applying your Melanoboost daily and spending short regular periods of time in the sun will help you achieve your best results.

The biomimetic peptide is specially indicated for people with fair skin that want to tan but can’t spend longer periods of time in the sun.

The results determined by you will also come down to your expectations. For example, if someone is very fair to begin with, they shouldn’t expect to see results like an olive skin tone. Melanoboost is designed to help you achieve your best tan possible.

Melanoboost doesn’t contain SPF so make sure you apply your usual spf over the top of your Melanoboost and if you are fair, limit your amount of sun exposure.

We're happy to say that Melanoboost products are vegan. Melanoboost products are not tested on animals.
