"This is the best self-tanner on the market. Non-toxic, and not at all smelly! It smoothes on like a luscious body lotion and after a few hours, reveals a truly flawless tan." - Sophie Uliano, author of New York Times Bestseller: Gorgeously Green: 8 Simple Steps to an Earth-Friendly Life

Our Self-Tanner was the only natural cosmetic product to receive an "Outstanding" rating from Oekto-Test Magazine. It was also the Winner of the "Special Innovation Prize 2002" in Europe.

"For the past few years, I've managed to stay out of the sun because I am scared of skin cancer. But I missed having a tan. A friend recommended this self tanner and I LOVE it! Just exfoliate and then apply like a body lotion. I have not had any problems re: orange spots whatsoever. The smell is refreshing and the fact that lavera uses only natural/organic ingredients makes this a perfect product, especially for mothers and mothers-to-be. Highly recommend lavera's Self Tanner!"Yvonne Schwab

Mixed Feelings
Review by: Joanne M on 6/6/2014
This is an easily applied tanner. The first time I applied it was at bedtime, and and although it does not smell like self-tanner, the
cheap perfume odor was not pleasant.. By morning I had
a dark "full-body" tan-no streaks-- and the odor faded during the day. My skin stays smooth and silky day after day, but for the first 3-4 days, I had a fake looking uniform color that made it look like I'd been dipped in paint. I should have been more careful reading the ratings given for the color to expect, and instead of looking at photo comparisons, read the ratings. Lavera (at least on my skin) is a definite "medium-dark" with a slight yellowish tinge --maybe even a Tropical Dark-- and gave me the color seen on young girls in commerciasl for the Bahamas. At my age, I'd prefer just a "healthy light tan."
I am so impressed with the good qualities of this tanner, and really think the disappointing results were due to my own careless choice of which product to buy. I'll try the Light-medium next...but will call and talk to someone at True Natural before I do.

I looked for a paraben and DHA free self-tanning lotion and found one that I can really recommend. It’s contains 100 percent pure and natural active ingredients derived from plants. It’s also vegan. It’s an award winning product
