Pregnancy safe self tanner by Luna Bronze

Embrace Your Glow: Using Self Tanner During Pregnancy

During pregnancy, many women find themselves missing their glow and feeling a bit meh. At Luna Bronze, we believe in Feel Good Bronzing for all and one of the most common questions we receive is “Can I use a self tanner during pregnancy?” 

At Luna Bronze, we understand the importance of providing products that cater to the needs of expectant mothers without compromising on efficacy or safety. Our pregnancy friendly self tan products are formulated with the utmost care and consideration for the well-being of both mum and bub.

One of the key components in most self tanning products is Dihydroxyacetone (DHA), a colour additive responsible for producing an artificial tan. Research published in the National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health explains that DHA binds to amino acids in the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of the skin, resulting in the development of that bronzed colour that we all love. At Luna Bronze, we only use the highest quality naturally derived DHA across the entire range. This comes at a higher cost than many of the cheaper self tanning brands on the market, but from the very beginning it has been something that we have refused to budge on. Our product range contains DHA concentrations ranging from 1% to 15% and studies have shown that as with most topical products, there is minimal systemic absorption (only about 0.5%) upon application. This is why we are confident to recommend our products to pregnant women.

Our commitment to safety goes beyond naturally derived DHA. We take pride in using a high concentration of organic, natural, and naturally derived ingredients in all our formulations. While no specific testing has been conducted to label our products (or many other cosmetic products) as "pregnancy safe," our dedication to purity and quality makes them a better choice for expecting mothers.

It is important to note that there isn't a specific agency or standardised testing protocol for determining whether cosmetic products are "pregnancy safe." Unlike certain medications or medical treatments, cosmetic products are not subject to mandatory pre-market approval by regulatory agencies specifically for use during pregnancy. While our products are formulated with safety in mind, we always recommend consulting with your healthcare provider before incorporating any new products into your routine during pregnancy. Every pregnancy is unique, and what works for one person may not be suitable for another.

For breastfeeding mothers, an extra layer of caution is advised. While our self tanners are generally safe for use during breastfeeding, we recommend avoiding application around the nipple or areola to minimise any potential risks. Self tanners are considered safe for topical application to the skin, but should not be ingested.

Ultimately, sunless tanner during pregnancy can be a safe and empowering way to maintain your confidence and feel radiant throughout this special time. With our pregnancy friendly self tanning products, you can embrace a sun-kissed glow without compromising on peace of mind.

In conclusion, the journey to motherhood is a beautiful one, and every step should be taken with care and consideration. With our pregnancy friendly self tanning options, you can indulge in a little self-care while prioritising the safety of both you and your baby. Embrace your glow and cherish this magical time in your life.



TL;DR: Luna Bronze offers pregnancy friendly self tanning products formulated with high-quality, naturally derived DHA to provide a sun-kissed glow without compromising safety during pregnancy. With DHA concentrations ranging from 1% to 15% and with minimal absorption, our products can be deemed safe for most expecting mothers. While no specific agency conducts "pregnancy safe" testing for cosmetics, our commitment to using a high concentration of organic, natural, and naturally derived ingredients ensures a safer choice for pregnant women. However, consulting healthcare providers before use is advised. For breastfeeding mothers, caution is recommended, especially around the nipple or areola. Ultimately, our self-tanning options empower women to maintain confidence and feel radiant during this special time, prioritising both mum and bub well-being.
