Why Natural Suntan Oil?

The Toxins Hiding in Your Tanning Oil

If you currently use a tanning oil from a shop, take a look at the ingredients. Like sunscreens, you will probably find that most of the ingredients are ones that you can’t even pronounce. They don’t even look like real words! If you can’t pronounce them, how do you know they are any good for your skin?

Chances are they honestly aren’t that good. Many of the traditional tanning oils are full of toxins that will cause harm to your skin, especially when in contact with UV rays from the sun. Some of the toxins will even sound beneficial until you find out how they are made.

One of those toxins that sound good is mineral oil. Rather than being full of good minerals that will help to boost your skin’s health, it’s full of petroleum. You know based on what petrol does to the environment that it is NOT a good ingredient. It is also a carcinogen, increasing your risk of cancer. Do you really want to use that when you are laying out to get a nice dark tan?

Most store-bought tanning oils will use preservatives in the ingredients. You want to avoid food without preservatives, right? Well, the stuff you put on your skin should be artificial preservative-free, too! In fact, tanning oil can actually be worse. Your skin will absorb those parabens and BHT.


Oxybenzone is a chemical compound and it is the most common chemical UV filter used in sun screens today. According to EWG, oxybenzone is found in 80% of chemical sunscreens on the market and it is estimated to be detected in 96% of American population. EWG rated oxybenzone 8/10 on toxicity rating. Translated to regular English: Oxybenzone is one of the most toxic ingredients in cosmetic industry. (source)

That means you will help your skin get a golden look while protecting it from some damage to the skin.
