Coinciding with the arrival of summer, the recent ban on solariums, and new concerns about the safety of spray tanning facilities, two stay-at-home mums created SKINNY TAN, a revolutionary new cream that tans and tightens with safe, 100% natural ingredients. Co-founder Kate Cotton says – “Many women tan in the hope to look thinner so we just thought it makes sense to also include the firming active in the same cream.”
The two mums, Louis Ferguson and Kate Cotton, recently appeared on BBC Two’s hit series “Dragons’ Den” – a reality TV show in which budding entrepreneurs get three minutes to pitch their business ideas to five multi-millionaires who have the power to launch their business idea into reality. Skinny Tan immediately sparked interest from all five ‘Dragons’, resulting in a total of 9 offers – a series record! – to help make the product available in both the UK and Australia. On the show, the women made a deal of 10 % of their company for the 60,000 pound investment with the two newest ‘Dragons’ – celebrity interior designer Kelly Hoppen MBE and ‘Cloud’ entrepreneur Piers Linney.
“They are amazing women with an amazing product and I am really looking forward to having a long and successful future working with these ladies.” Says Hoppen. Skinny Tan is the first self-tanner to combine a 100% natural tanning active with naturally derived body firming actives, making skin look naturally tanned, toned, and bikini ready. It is free from the chemical DHA and instead includes a natural element derived from the seeds of the Brassica Napus plant. Co-founder Louise Ferguson says – “By using an organic tanning active in a cream, we know this is a safer alternative that makes the user look visibly thinner.”
