What is Xen-Tan?
Xen-Tan specializes in the science of sunless tanning products. Because Xen-Tan was designed by ardent self tanners, our products deliver 100% effectiveness and usability with a natural instant colour and a delicious scent from start to finish.
What is DHA? (active tanning ingredient)
DHA (dihydroxyacetone) is the active ingredient used in sunless tanning products. It is a sugar molecule and reacts to the amino acids on the surface of the skin. The level of DHA controls how dark and natural the colour looks. Too much DHA can lead to a rusty, irregular look. Too little DHA results in an ineffective tan that fades to quickly. XEN-TAN uses a high level of DHA but is carefully formulated for a dark, natural tan – balanced with moisturizing oils to guarantee a smooth, streak free application and tan.

- Shaving or waxing must be done at least 24 hours prior to treatment.
