2013 Tanning Lotions By Swedish Beauty

We all love Swedish Beauty. Swedish Beauty is known to incorporate the latest vitamins and skin care complexes available and this year, they have done it again! Before we dive into the brand new line lets take a quick minute to discuss some of the latest and greatest Technologies we see emerging in this new line.

BioBronze Blend: This melanin enhancer is a proprietary blend of natural botanical ingredients. BioBronze significantly stimulates Tyrosinase, which is the kick start for providing immediate, rich color. It is also a rich source of Vitamin C with strong antioxidant properties.

Boosted Bio-Bronze Blend : An enhanced, proprietary Swedish Beauty Botanica Blend of natural botanical ingredients that help activate tan color to achieve even darker hues than could previously be reached with current broning systems.

TanStart Technology: Base-building Melanin and Tyrosine help stimulate pigment production for dark color results.

Curve Appeal: Enhancing cell rejuvenation, Stevia works to tone and tighten while promoting moisturized, smooth and conditioned skin.

Vita-Beauty Blend: A proprietary blend of Vitamins – Encapsulated Vitamin D and B5 work to promote healthier, younger-looking skin.

Sweet Treats: Rich in Vitamins C and K, Blueberries and Dark Chocolate help to fight free radicals with antioxidant power for more youthful-looking skin.

OK, now that you are educated, let’s check these out one by one!
