Brand Story

Xen-Tan is the revolutionary fake tan for people who want to enjoy a natural-looking gorgeous glow that makes them look and feel good all over!.

Founded in the USA in 2002, Xen-Tan is the brainchild of Dera, a dedicated self tanner who used her 15 years of experience in make-up artistry and product development to create a trusted tanning range that was easy to apply, smelled beautiful, left skin nourished and guaranteed the most flawless, olive tan every time.

“Growing up a red-head with such fair complexion, I envied people who had natural olive undertone to their skin. I endlessly tried different brands of self-tan to give colour to my skin, but was tired of the chemical smells and unnatural colours that never seemed to go away, even days later” she describes.

The secret behind Xen-Tan’s natural-looking self-tan is a time release agent. The time-release agent in their products controls the amount of the sunless tan ingredient, DHA (dihydroxyacetone), released on the skin during application. When released too quickly, DHA creates the unpleasant odours and an orange finish. Xen-Tan’s time-release process leaves flawless and natural results.

After proving such a hit in the US, the Xen-Tan range was brought to the UK and Ireland, and it is has fast become the brand of choice for fake tan lovers and celebrities alike, along with leading beauty experts from the fashion, TV, music and film industries. And it has already received over 18 prestigious beauty awards.

With Xen-Tan you can achieve the beautiful tan you love, without putting your skin, or your health, at risk. In fact, thanks to Xen-Tan's skin-nourishing formula and rich moisturisers, using it actually helps care for skin, to keep it feeling fabulous. With the highest quality ingredients Xen-Tan will nourish your skin whilst giving you a beautiful tan you can trust.

These are the ingredients that give the products some of the skin care benefits:
