Beauty By Earth Self TannerSee All Beauty By Earth
Want that sun-kissed glow but don’t want to spend hours baking in the sun? Our natural self tanner is the solution you’re looking for! You’ll get the beautiful, healthy tan you want without exposing your skin to harsh UV rays or the potentially dangerous chemicals used in conventional self tanners.
- SAY GOODBYE TO GHOSTLY WHITE SKIN: Pale, lifeless skin really isn’t your best look. But that’s why we’re here. Our vegan, cruelty-free, and all-natural tanning lotion transforms even the palest skin from “meh” to “marvelous.” Build your tan one layer at a time to get your ideal level of bronze (and cover up blemishes, veins, or imperfections) without any of those nasty streaks, blotches, or dark spots.
- GET A SUN-KISSED TAN WITHOUT THE SUN DAMAGE: Love that sun-kissed glow but hate the thought of sunburns, early aging, and skin cancer? We think that sounds pretty reasonable. We also think that you don’t have to put up with dangerous sun exposure to get the tan you want. Our self tanning lotion harnesses the power of natural ingredients to give you a beautiful, natural looking tan – no radiation required.
- DO YOUR SKIN A FAVOR: Ever read the back of a conventional tanner? You need a PhD to pronounce all those ingredients. We use only simple, natural ingredients in our self tanning lotion, so you’ll never have to worry about what you’re putting on your body. With ingredients like organic shea butter, organic coconut oil, and Japanese green tea leaf extract, your skin will thank you by looking and feeling incredible.
- SAFE FOR EVERYONE (Even You, Mama!) AND YOU WONT BE AN ORANGE OOMPA LOOMPA: If you have sensitive skin, maintaining that summer glow can be uncomfortable. Our self tanner’s meticulously crafted formulation is free of anything toxic, so everyone can enjoy the confidence that comes from knowing your skin looks amazing. And who wants to look like an Oompa Loompa? Not you. Our self tanner gives you a glow so convincing your friends will wonder when you had time to go on a trip to the Bahamas.
The Most Beautiful Thing You Can Wear is Confidence
Kick pale, pasty skin to the curb and greet the world with confidence with the best self tanner out there. When you’re rocking a safe, natural tan, you’ll face life with the certainty that comes from knowing you look your best. And when you use our natural, vegan, cruelty-free tanning lotion you’ll have the added bonus of knowing your beauty will never cost you your health or your integrity.
So what makes our sunless tanner the quickest way to a brand new you? It starts with a few carefully chosen ingredients. We collect high quality, nourishing, and natural ingredients from around the world to create a tanner that gives natural color without exposing your body to anything harmful. Ingredients like organic shea butter, organic green tea extract, and organic coconut oil care for your skin while supporting a streak-free sunless tan. Add color one application at a time to build a glow that will make everyone wonder when you had time to take a tropical vacation.
How to Use Your Self Tanner
- Ready to tan? Start by exfoliating your skin. Use a loofah, exfoliating pad, or a body scrub to gently get rid of dead skin cells – our self tanning application kit will give you all the tools you need for a perfect tan. This will help make sure your tan lasts as long as possible. It’s also a good idea to paint your nails before applying your tanner – unless you like orange-y nails, that is. Give your feet a little moisturizing love beforehand to help make sure they don’t end up darker than your body. Finally, wait a day or two after shaving before using our self tanner. If you apply to newly shaved skin, all of your pores will show up as little orange dots.
- When you’re ready, apply a thin layer of self tanner evenly over your legs, arms, torso, and face (avoid your eyes). Be careful when working on loose areas of skin (such as the elbows and knees). These areas are more absorbent, so it’s easy to overdo it and end up with dark spots. Wearing latex gloves can help you get a more even tan, and will prevent colored palms. If you decide not to wear gloves, wash your hands immediately after tanning.
- Your skin should reach your desired color within six hours. If it doesn’t, reapply the following day. We find that reapplying every 4-7 days is best for maintaining color, but do what works best for you. Enjoy your sunny, golden skin!

Beauty By Earth was created by two friends asking a question that is so often considered these days: how can you find health and beauty products that are safe to use around young children? Like so many parents, we found it incredibly difficult to find products that were effective, easy to access, and natural. So we figured why not make them ourselves?
Since we first decided to create Beauty By Earth, it’s been one heck of a ride! But throughout this experience, we’ve stayed dedicated to the idea that got us started: inspiring beauty and nurturing health. We’re thrilled to bring the items that have enriched our lives and improved our wellbeing to you and your family.
At Beauty By Earth, we’re here to bring you all natural skin care products that harmonize with your body’s natural state. We skip the junk you’ll find all to often in mainstream cosmetics and skin products. Instead, we use organic, natural ingredients that nourish your body and help inspire your beauty. We’re committed to helping you take care of yourself and your family without fear of unnecessary or harmful ingredients. We’re also proud to say that our products are gluten free, non-GMO, and mostly vegan, making them accessible to just about anyone.
Our commitment to inspiring beauty and nurturing health extends to everything and everyone that goes into creating our products. That means that all Beauty by Earth products are cruelty free and are proudly made in the USA under sterile conditions in a secure, FDA certified facility.
Question: Is this an organic self tanner?
Answer: While it is not certified organic, our natural self tanner is made up of 81% water and certified organic ingredients, the other 19% are naturally derived ingredients and it does not include any toxic or harmful additives.
Question: What natural self tanner ingredients are used in this product?
Answer: The active ingredient in our self tanner is DHA, a sugar derivative that gives the top layer of the skin a bronzed glow. It’s 100% natural and non-GMO. It’s backed up by a carefully selected combination of supporting ingredients, including organic aloe vera leaf juice (for luscious hydration), organic shea butter (for maximum moisturization), and organic pomegranate and cranberry extract (because who doesn’t love a bit of fruitiness in their self tanner?).
Question: How long does the color from this self tanning lotion last?
Answer: We can’t pinpoint the exact number of days – that will vary based on your application method, skin type, and how often you reapply. Many of our customers who have left self tanner reviews report that their tan lasted 5-7 days.
Question: How do I use self tanner?
Answer: We get this question all the time! So often, in fact, that we wrote a blog post about it. Check it out here.
Question: Does this self tanning cream contain any parabens?
Answer: Uh-uh, no way. We never use parabens, phthalates, sulfates, artificial fragrances, or any other junk that has no business getting near your skin. And that rule applies to all our products, not just our self tanner. You can find a complete list of what we do (and don’t) include on our product page.
Question: Will my skin end up blotchy or streaked after using this self tanner?
Answer: Any self tanner will leave streaks if it’s not used correctly, but with good technique our self tanner is primed to give you an even glow. If you really want great results, our spa quality self tanner applicator mitts are your best bet.
Question: Is this self tanner made with SPF or do I need to use sunscreen also?
Answer: Our self tanner can provide great color, but it won’t protect you from the sun as it does not contain SPF ingredients. Make sure to keep up with your sunscreen routine no matter how often you use our tanner.
Question: Can using a natural self tanner help prevent the signs of aging?
Answer: Absolutely. Self tanning is a much safer alternative to spending time in the sun or in tanning beds. Exposure to UVA and UVB radiation can cause premature aging, including age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, freckles, and more. With enough time it can leave your skin looking tough and leathery. And don’t even get us started on the cancer risk… No way around it – self tanning with a natural tanner is the best way to go.
Question: Is this a good self tanner for sensitive skin?
Answer: Our self tanner uses all-natural ingredients that are gentle on sensitive skin. However, with any new product it’s always a good idea to do a test patch before using it on larger areas. Take a look through our self tanner reviews to find out how other customers with sensitive skin reacted – the response has been overwhelmingly positive.
Question: How often can I use your self tanner?
Answer: As often as needed! Keep an eye on your tan, and when it starts to fade go ahead and reapply. Most customers find that their tan lasts about 7 days before fading, but if you notice a difference sooner, there’s no reason not to reapply.
Question: How do I extend the life of my self tan?
Answer: Take the time to apply it right – exfoliate first, be generous with the amount you use, and use a self tanning mitt. We find that we can extend the life of our tan by sticking to warm (not hot) showers and by moisturizing daily.
Question: Can this be used as a face self tanner?
Answer: Absolutely. We recommend using a face moisturizer first and then applying the self tanner just as you would a moisturizer. Get all the way to your hair line, your neck and ears too.
- What inspired you to create your brand?
We found that clean, green skincare products were just not widely available at a good price point. The ones that were marketed as clean and were maybe affordable were not truly clean ingredients. We wanted to make truly clean products more widely available at an affordable price.
- If you could go back to the beginning of the creation of your brand what would you do differently?
We would bring more products to market more rapidly, rather than dripping them out.
- What advice do you have to offer for those entrepreneurs in the green beauty industry just starting out?
Do your homework. Learn about ingredients and work with a good lab and chemist to get you to where you want. Really do your homework on your market demographic so your marketing efforts are targeting the right people.
- What is your most favorite product you have created and why?
Oh, that is a hard one. I absolutely love our self tanner. Being naturally pale, there are times I just need some color and this is definitely my go-to. But the product I use most often is the foaming face wash. It’s just so light and gives a great cleanse.
- How do you juggle your life with such huge demands from your company?
The first few years were rough. Lot of late nights after putting the kids to bed. We would carve out from 4-8pm for the kids each day and worked into the night to keep the grind going in the beginning. It gets easier.
- What is your morning and evening beauty routine?
In the morning I wash my face with Beauty By Earth Face Wash first. If I’m having problem skin, I’ll use the Beauty By Earth scrub and black Konjac sponge to give it an extra good clean. Then I spritz the Beauty By Earth Facial Toner and follow it up with their oil control moisturizer and eye cream. Finally, I’ll apply the Beauty By Earth tinted sunscreen before applying makeup.
At night I’ll wipe my face clean with the Shea Moisture face wipes and follow it up with the Beauty By Earth moisturizer and eye cream. If I’m having problem skin, I’ll apply the Beauty By Earth face mask before the moisturizer.
- What ingredients are never added to any of your products?
Parabens, SLS, SLES, artificial fragrance, artificial dye, avobenzone, oxybenzone, formaldyhyde, phthalates, PEGs, petrolatum, mineral oil, soy, propylene glycol and anything harmful for your skin.
- What is the best beauty advice you have received?
I love to follow beauty blogs like Organic Bunny and SunKissAlba for beauty advice about how to take care of your skin or even just every day routines. I’d say the best advice I have received is to follow the EWG Skin Deep database to find out how harmful each ingredient in your products are and what are the safest products to use.
- What sets you apart from the sea of competition?
We go through a rigorous testing and formation process with all of our products before we put it in our store. We personally test everything ourselves to our satisfaction, and ensure all ingredients used in our products are safe. That’s why all of us on the Beauty By Earth team love to use our own products. We also test it on all skin types first to make sure the products are effective and great for everyone. Lastly, our price point for the quality of our products is quite reasonable.
