Product's Label Information

Ingredients from packaging:

WATER, DIHYDROXYACETONE, GLYCERIN, ALCOHOL DENAT., ETHOXYDIGLYCOL, DIMETHYL ISOSORBIDE, DECYL GLUCOSIDE, CETEARETH-25, FRAGRANCE, HYDROXYETHYL ACRYLATE/SODIUM ACRYLOYLDIMETHYL TAURATE COPOLYMER, METHYLPARABEN, CITRIC ACID, SORBITAN ISOSTEARATE, POLYSORBATE 60, BENZYL ALCOHOL, ERYTHRULOSE, CARAMEL, ORANGE 4, EXT. VIOLET 2, YELLOW 10, RED 4.

Directions from packaging:

Step 1: Prep Your Skin Apply to clean, dry, moisturized skin. For optimal color results, exfoliate with Jergens Natural Glow Color Primer Exfoliating In-Shower Body Scrub once per week prior to color application. Step 2: Apply Pump mousse into palm. Smooth onto skin, using sparingly around dry areas like knuckles, knees, ankles, elbows, and in between fingers and toes. Wash hands immediately after application. Optional: Use a sunless tanning mitt or gloves when applying to avoid unwanted color on hands. Step 3: What to Expect Allow to dry completely (about 60 seconds) before getting dressed. The color develops instantly, and continues to deepen for several hours after application. Avoid getting wet (swimming, exercising, or showering) for at least four hours after application. Step 4: Maintaining Your Tan The formula is buildable, so if you'd like the color to be darker, you can re-apply as soon as the next day. Normal bathing and your skin's natural exfoliation process will fade the color in about one week. If you have any unwanted color on your skin, use a body scrub to remove it.

Warnings from packaging:

: For external use only. Avoid eye contact. If eye contact occurs, rinse thoroughly with water. Do not apply to broken skin. Discontinue use if irritation or rash appears. This product does not contain a sunscreen and does not protect against sunburn. Repeated exposure of unprotected skin while tanning may increase the risk of skin aging, skin cancer, and other harmful effects to the skin even if you do not burn.
