What Are Tanning Tablets? 

Myvitamins Tanning Tablets are an expert blend vitamins, minerals and active ingredients, designed to help you support your hair and skin from within.  

Each tablet contains:  

  • Biotin, zinc and selenium to promote healthy hair, skin and nails. 1 
  • Copper to contribute to normal skin pigmentation. 2 
  • Vitamin C to help maintain collagen formation and protect cells from oxidative stress. 3 
  • A phyto pigment complex of beta carotene, lycopene, and L-tyrosine. 

How Do Tanning Tablets Work? 

Our Tanning Tablets contain carotenoids beta-carotene, lycopene and amino acid l-tyrosine.   

Beta-carotene is an organic pigment which the body converts into vitamin A. Recent studies have shown that vitamin A is involved in the production of melanin in the skin. (4) Melanin determines our skin and hair colour, impacts skin pigmentation and protects our skin from sun damage. 4

Lycopene is a plant nutrient which has a range of antioxidant benefits, including detoxifying free radicals and improving skin density. 5

L-tyrosine is a non-essential amino acid which is important for the production of neurotransmitters and also melanin. 6

Are Tanning Tablets Effective?

The complex blend of carotenoids and copper in these tablets impact melanin production and skin pigmentation, helping to speed up the process of tanning.
