Caribbean Tan is no ordinary sunless tanning brand. Our innovative professional self-tan and tan care products are designed to eliminate the fuss and mess associated with at-home tanning creams, as well as the costs associated with achieving the perfect tan. Let’s face it – beauty is mainly a confidence thing, and we believe everyone deserves to look and feel their best, come rain or shine.

We believe that treating your skin with care is beautiful, and that means tanning safely, and loving your body from head to toe. We want you to look and feel like a goddess all year round, which is why all our products are designed with your skin care health and happiness in mind: good for you, good for our planet, and cruelty-free!

Love the skin you’re in, with Caribbean Tan!

Caribbean Tan was born out of pure inspiration back in 2003, when managing director Clive Roberts was on a tropical adventure, captivated by turquoise ocean and startling sunshine. He saw a need for a better, safer way to achieve that beautiful bronzed holiday look, without damaging your skin by exposing it to harmful UV rays or harsh chemicals. Enter Caribbean Tan Professional Salon System: the first professional self-tanning salon application system in South Africa, which subsequently sparked the Salon Spray Tan phenomenon. In 2007, Caribbean Tan became available on the shelves of beauty stores, which contributed to it quickly becoming consumers’ number one choice for self-tanning.

With Caribbean Tan moving into homes and into the hands of consumers, the focus was on creating a non-streaky, non-orange, easy-to-apply product that was suited to specific skin-types and that achieved salon-quality results. Working with the best chemist and formulators, we did exactly that! And the rest, as they say, is history.

Caribbean Tan spokesperson Cindy Nell Roberts was involved in the development of the newer arm of Caribbean Tan, and tried all the products in the development stages. She is the ideal ambassador, and inspires the brand in her quest for a healthier, more balanced lifestyle.

 

“I use to love lying in the sun and on sunbeds, because I love being brown. But by age 25 I could already see the incredible ageing effect that had accumulated. I literally woke up one morning and noticed that I have more wrinkles than my older friends and pigmentation that has now taken me years to reverse. I love to be brown because it makes me look healthy, thinner, and toned. But never again at the cost of my health and long-term appearance. Caribbean Tan is by far the best product I have ever used. Some say self-tan only lasts 10 or 15 days but a tan from the sun only lasts a few weeks anyway so what is the difference? (And for all that exposure and UV damage I don’t want a UV tan, no thank you!)”

Caribbean Tan is a South African registered company, distributing various self-tan and sun protection products, both locally and internationally.
