How to achieve an ultra-dark tan (and make your tan last longer)
The self tan question wondered by self tanners all over the globe is how to get an extra dark tan that lasts. With new restrictions across the EU surrounding DHA laws, all fake tan solutions are now capped at 10% DHA, but lucky for Rose & Caramel customers we knew this law was coming & we designed all our ultra-dark self tans within the guidelines from day one giving our tanners a safe extra dark tanning experience. Unlike using coconut oil, we use a key hydration ingredient that is proven to give a deeper tan than most formulas on the market.
Prior to application, exfoliate 24 hours before tanning use Purity Excel 60 second tan remover for the most effective exfoliation.

Next apply purity prep & protect hydration mist to any dry areas such as hands, feet, elbows to prime the skin and stop any over development.
