Skinny Tan Founders

Skinny Tan started as a true homegrown tanning brand created by real women for real women from the passion to make a range of tanning products that could be enjoyed by every shape, size and skin type.  Skinny Tan credits its phenomenal success to the wonderful customers who have enjoyed their tanners and shared the experience. 

The Skinny Tan Story

As Seen on Dragons Den the (UK version of shark tank) with their record-breaking pitch Kate and Louise had spent years disappointed by orange tans and didn't like most fake tans smell.   So they decided to make their own tanner and attempt to solve their issues with tanning.
First and foremost the Skinny Tan color had to be indistinguishable from a real tan.  And as Louise was not good at applying tan Skinny Tan had to be fool-proof and streak-free without so much as a hint of orange.  
Also having just had children Louise was very conscious of the number of harsh chemicals she felt were used in everyday life.  She wanted the 'Skinny' in Skinny tan to be represented by a skin kind 'skinny' ingredients list with as far as possible more naturally derived ingredients with some Skinny Tan products being made from as much as 99% naturally derived ingredients. 

There was no question that Skinny Tan would have to be paraben-free, sulfate-free not tested on animals and suitable for Vegans.
   
And it is the passion to really make a tanner for themselves that lead to its success.  It makes sense.  Because when they made their dream-tanner it turned out to be a tanner that thousands of other women had been dreaming of, too. 
Thanks for loving Skinny Tan as much as we do and helping us spread the word!
