The Sun Laboratories story began during the 1980s, when the harmful effects of ultraviolet rays were just becoming widely known. A California native, Gisela Hunter became concerned about what damage her passion for the sun was potentially causing her skin, but at the same time, she hated the thought of having to sacrifice that beautiful golden glow. Her search to find a safer way to tan led to the development of the Sun Laboratories collection, which includes a line of sunless tanning products that create unparalleled gorgeous results.
Unlike many other sunless tanning products, Sun Laboratories formulas are capable of creating an ultra dark finish that looks completely natural. Never brassy or orange, the UV-free tan that you'll receive from Sun Labs products is completely safe for the skin. In fact, the formulas contain nutrients that can actually help to reverse sun damage. If your skin is irritated due to sun exposure or tanning beds, you'll also find soothing aloe vera treatments in the collection to eliminate redness, peeling and other unpleasant symptoms.
Many of the Sun Labs sunless tanners provide immediate color, so they're ideal for applying before you hit the clubs or the beach, and their pigments continue to gradually darken the skin to your desired depth of color for hours after application. This creates the most natural-looking tan possible. The formulas in the Sun Labs range are also designed to apply as evenly as possible to prevent unwanted streaking.
