SeneDerm® Shea Butter Body Bronzer
Frequently Asked Questions regarding SeneDerm Shea Butter Body Bronzer:
How does SeneDerm® Shea Butter Body Bronzer with SenePlex® work?SeneDerm® Shea Butter Body Bronzer with SenePlex® contains dihydroxyacetone (DHA). According to the American Academy of Dermatology, the most effective self tanning products contain dihydroxyacetone (DHA). as the active ingredient. The tan is a chemical reaction between the DHA and the amino acids and proteins in the outer layer on the skin surface. It is not a dye, stain or paint. The reaction is non-toxic and skin safe, without the damage associated with UV exposure. The tan is temporary and will fade gradually over 3 to 10 days.
Note: Some people may be sensitive or allergic to the ingredients found in SeneDerm® Shea Butter Body Bronzer. Try a test run with a dab on a small section of skin before covering your entire body. If you notice an uncomfortable reaction, discontinue use at once.
Do I need to apply a sunscreen?
The most important thing to remember about self tanning is that SeneDerm® Shea Butter Body Bronzer does not protect your skin against the sun. When using the Body Bronzer, slather yourself with the same amount of sunscreen you would use if you were as pale as a ghost.
If I swim in a chlorinated pool, will my sunless tan fade?
Long exposure to water, with or without chlorine, will fade your sunless tan. Your outer skin cells will start to soak up water, and that dilutes the tanning effect. The longer you are in the water, the more your skin will fade. Using your SeneDerm® Shea Butter Body Bronzer regularly over a period of time will saturate the skin better and your sunless tan will hold up longer in water, but it will still be affected. It is reported that applying a waterproof sunscreen before you get in the water prevents the sunless tan from fading as quickly.
Can I hide my scars by self tanning?
Scars are a bit unpredictable. Mostly, they darken very little or not at all. The more recent the scar, the less Body Bronzer it will absorb. Please note that stretch marks are scars! Stretch marks that are a few years old will be disguised by sunless tanners; new ones will not absorb the lotion and may look more prominent (if this gets you down, keep in mind that stretch marks and scars don’t tan in the sun, either - and the sun will impair healing). Your freckles and moles will also darken along with the rest of your skin. In fact, some colorless moles may become significantly darker. This is a sad fact of sunless tanning.
If you’re pregnant or nursing, experts recommend checking with your physician before applying
According to the American Pregnancy Association, DHA is considered safe for pregnant woman. However, their editors also say, "The only concern is whether the active ingredient, dihydroxyacetone (DHA), is able to penetrate the skin. Studies do not confirm that it can, but some health care providers encourage women to wait until after the first trimester, just to play it safe."
Is it okay for men to use SeneDerm® Shea Butter Body Bronzer with SenePlex®?
No. Men should never do anything to improve their appearance. They should avoid shaving, getting haircuts, buying stylish clothing, working out, and brushing their teeth. Otherwise, such consequesnces may result such as dating and marriage! (Of course men can use SeneDerm® Shea Butter Body Bronzer! It is not gender specific!)
Science Behind the Product
Here is a partial list of some of the ingredients:
Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) is currently the only active ingredient approved by the FDA for sunless tanning. It interacts with the proteins in the outer layer of your skin to produce a tan-like appearance without sun exposure.
Sorbitan and Sesquioliate are thickening agents that are sometimes known as a synthetic wax.
Ceresin is a clay derived thickening agent.
Panthenol is a humectant, emollient and moisturizer.
Erythrulose is a natural keto-sugar which reacts in complementary combination with DHA (dihydroxyacetone) producing an even, non-streaky and longer tan.
SenePlex® Complex is the mechanism that speeds up the cellular renewal process. Producing cells faster is the fundamental process that will produce plumper, firmer, and better looking luminous skin. SenePlex® Complex is an acid-free combination that increases skin cell renewal. It increases collagen production by contributing to skin firming. It evens skin tone by visibly minimizing the appearance of minor scaring, discoloration and age-related fine lines. A polysaccharide found in the algae calms irritation and promotes healing. It visibly reduces inflammation and redness of sensitive or irritated skin.
Body Bronzer Product Tip
To work properly, DHA must bond with skin cells. It won’t work if your skin is wet or sweaty.
