Some of you that have had lotion training may be able to explain this to me.

If I use Pitch Blaque, I tend to look more of a dark brown after tanning and after a few days.

When I use Matahari (specifically Jamacian Red Hemp) or CalTan Melted Butter (spray), I look more copper colored.

Cal Tan and Matahari are both Step 2. Pitch Blaque doesn't have a Step on it.

Is it more like a step 1 and I am just not ready for a step 2. I prefer the brown to the copper result.

or...

Could it have something to do with the ingredients.


It does have 3 Tyrosines (Acetyl-L-Tyrosine, L-Tyrosine, and Oleoyl Tyrosine).

Cal Tan doesn't list a Tyrosine.

Matahari has Disodium Malyl Tyrosinate.

Probably more to do with the % of DHA (self tanner) that's making the difference. The "steps" are only relevent to the company marketing it.

I'm not finding DHA in the ingredients of any of the three? Is there anything else that would cause this? I was purposely trying not to use a "fake" tanner or a lotion with added color. What other ingredients would do this?

More Tyrosine = browner results???
