This month we have been talking a lot about sun protection. (Yes, we know, we are a tanning center… we are also your one-stop-shop for everything sunshine!) The Australian Gold© ‘Botanical SPF 30 Mineral Lotion’ and ‘Botanical SPF 50 Tinted Face’ have caught our collective eye… and continue to serve as hot-topic products around the Beaches tanning salons for several reasons:

1) THESE PRODUCTS PROTECT YOUR TAN! Who would have thought you could use a sunscreen as a tan extender? Keeping your skin healthy and moisturized at-all-times will help with proper, safe UV light absorption and can prevent those delicate spray tans from crackling! It’s important if you tan (both UV and sunless) to keep your skin at its best to achieve optimal results.

2) These are mineral-based sunscreens, meaning they offer natural benefits for your precious skin. Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide provide a non-chemical sun protection option with a matte finish that doesn’t ever look slimy! These essential elements also help treat acne breakouts, prevent aging and lower skin inflammation caused by rashes, allergies, and other irritants!

3) These Australian Gold© botanical products are eco-friendly and OXYBENZONE FREE (amongst other things). Fun fact: According to the EWG, oxybenzone (commonly found in most sunscreens) is one of the most toxic compounds used in developing cosmetic products. This not-so-healthy ingredient is known to imitate hormones and can potentially pose a serious risk to our reproductive systems. Alarming!

4) Of course, we love that these lotions haven’t been tested on animals and have both been given the stamp of approval by reputable dermatologists and pediatricians! If we haven’t convinced you already that you need Botanical SPF products for the summer, let us help you out… stop by any one of our 7 conveniently located Beaches Tanning Center locations in Utah & Salt Lake Counties… and we will send you on your way with a beachy bundle including both lotions and a delicious, protective lip smoothie for $24!
