Hey Babe, I’m Here to Help

Tan Babe is a brand new range of all-natural, vegan, organic and OIL BASED tanning care products that not only look and feel amazing, they won’t stain your clothes and sheets, turn you orange or leave you feeling like a hot, sticky mess! Instant colour, dries in seconds, no staining on clothes or sheets and shower within an hour!

Petrina created the Tan Babe range to suit all babes. As a former owner of Auckland’s busiest tanning salon, and with 15 years’ experience as a tanning professional, she knows all about skin reactions, chemicals and what works and what doesn’t.  The Tan Babe OIL BASED tan quickly penetrates and absorbs into the skin leaving an instant colour without the stick or the stink.

“I’ve tried every product known to man and know that orange is only good if you’re planning a visit to the land of Mr Wonka.”

At 14, Petrina made her own instant tan by mixing Hawaiian Tropic with hair dye, turning her fair skin a dark shade of rust. Ever since then she’s been trying to find the perfect tanning care product.

“I’ve worked with some great ranges over the years, but I wanted something that ticks all the boxes; no smell, no staining, no nasty chemicals, no stickiness, no orange, easy to use and being able to choose fast or slow processing. After struggling for years to find the perfect product I decided to make it myself.”

Working with a top scientist, Petrina created Tan Babe, a range of luxurious, organic and vegan and perfectly formulated tanning care products.

After a friend was recently diagnosed with cancer, Petrina became especially concerned about the use of chemicals in beauty care products and has designed the whole Tan Babe range free from nasty chemicals and parabens.

“I am notoriously well researched on chemicals in tan solution and beauty products and passionate that people should be able to be tanned safely without the nasty stuff. Skin is the largest organ and it takes just 26 seconds for products to penetrate the skin and enter into the bloodstream. I wanted to make a product range that not only looks and feels great, but is good for your skin too.”

Tan Babe cares for both babes and animals – all products are organic, vegan and cruelty free.
