Self tanning creams are notorious for being toxic. I have reviewed several natural tanners and this one is awesome, it provides a natural glow and is free of parabens, pthalates and oxybenzone. We all like the look of a natural tan without the chemicals so kudos to Nature's Gate for making a safe tanner. Aloe and Olive oil hydrate and soothe skin. I use this alone or with a little lotion to evenly spread.

*Buyer take note that this product does contain Phenoxyethanol (a perservative). The Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database rates phenoxyethanol a 4 on their hazard scale (0 being the least hazardous to 10 being the most). Compare this with most parabens that rank a 7 or higher on EWG’s scale. Since toxicity correlates to dosage, using such a material at very low levels common for preservatives (phenoxyethanol's function in cosmetics) means that the actual risks presented by this material are very, very low.
