Re: DERMA DARK?

It's a natural bronzer instead of DHA. My clients love it cause there is no streaking and no orange color to it.

Re: DERMA DARK?

I have not had a chance to use it, but from what I heard it works well.

As mentioned, its a bronzer used in Australian Gold and Swedish Beauty products. On these lines you will see "fourth dimension bronzers", "10 dimension bronzers", etc....

The first dimension is the 1 to 2 day bronzers that wash off, such as walnut oil.
The second will be bronzers that last longer and do not wash off, such as DHA (dihydroxyacetone).
From the third up you have the DermaDarks. So a "fourth" dimension bronzer will likely have 2 DermaDarks in it.

What DermaDark does: First they are clear, scent free bronzers. They also do not wash off, you can shower right after you tan. While they are bronzers, they essentially jump start the skins tanning process to get it darker. Think if as being more like a skin treatment for a darker tan than a bronzer. But this process takes a little time, effects are most noticed that day after the tan. The best part is they do NOT need UV light to work. I think there is a daily moisturizer out there that has it, while its not a self-tanner (wont get you darker and darker) you could use it to maintain a tan for several days if you can not get to a tanning bed.

Re: DERMA DARK?

I have used it and love it! Lotion with Derma Dark is a great thing to recommend to anyone...but specifically anyone that would like to use bronzer but either is scared of being orange or isn't sure about it sticking on their hands. It is streak-free and from my personal experience and with employees and clients, no one has had hands stain.

Re: DERMA DARK?

LOVE the SB Dark Secrets. Seriously my favorite lotion of all time. The moisturizer is SB Skin Embrace. Love it.

DermaDark is a plant based enzyme that increases the levels of tyrosine in your skin. Tyrosine is something we have in our skin and it's what tells the melanin to wake up! The more melanin you are making = the more tan you will get.

It is a bronzer but not a topical bronzer like DHA is. Big hit with my customers.

Re: DERMA DARK?

Quite a few and not all specifically say DermaDark so its hard to say which exact ones do, but here is what I can list that specifically say "DermaDark" on the label.

SB: Swedish Intensifier, Dark Secrets, Skin Embrace daily mousterizer.

AG: First Blush (from Colorology), Idol, Gold & Bronze

As I understand it, many other have it but its not part of the label yet.
