A new range of 6 products with a unique formula containing a peptide Lactobacillus Ferment that works with two different types of melanin in the dermis to create a deep, yet natural and streak-free tan. This active ingredient works to prevent the production of Pheomelanin (the yellow-red tone), increases the production of Eumelanin (the melanin that gives skin a black/brown tone) and stimulates higher concentrations of visible melanin. This results in a sunless tan that is deep, natural-looking and completely unique to the individual using it.
The star product in the range is a unique DHA Free Peptide Tanning Lotion. This skin-friendly fake tan offers the same fantastic results as the original skin tanning lotion, but has been developed specifically for those allergic to DHA (Dihydroxyacetone).
Each product in the range is blended with specially chosen plant extracts to hydrate and firm, and are delicately scented to provide a fresh ‘holiday inspired’ aroma to the skin.
Costs £35.00 for 200ml. Buy at www.beautylab.co.uk.
London: UK health watchdogs have joined the US in warning the public about the health dangers of an unlicensed injectable tanning drug, knicknamed the “Barbie Drug.”
The drug, which is known by the names Melanotan and Melanotan II is a synthetically-made hormone that stimulate the body to produce melanin, which gives the body a deep natural tan without the sun.
It is most popular with athletes and fitness enthusiasts who prefer not to expose themselves to sun damage.
As well as protection against burning, Melanotan, is also credited with boosting libido and an appetite depressant which hasled to it being nicknamed the ‘Barbie drug’ or ‘paradise pill’.
Despite its popularity, the American-made drug, has never been licensed for public use either in the US or Europe. But it continues to be sold illegally over the internet and in gyms and beauty salsons for up to £250.
In the UK the Medicine and Healthcare Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has issued a warning over the drug because not enough is known about the possible side-effects.
In addition, people injecting themselves run the risk of contracting HIV or other viruses from dirty needles.
David Carter, head of the MHRA unit for ‘borderline’ drugs, said people should not be fooled into thinking it was safer than the sun and warned anyone who had them not to use them again. Anyone who has used them should see a doctor, he said.
“The safety of these products is unknown and they are unlicensed in the UK. The side effects could be extremely serious,” he said.
