Striving for the ultimate uGlow: Self-Tanning from Concept to Shelf

uGlow - Intelligent tanning | The ultimate self-tanning experience

At uGlow we are driven to bring our customers the ultimate self-tanning experience.

Launching our first clear water self-tan in 2020 was a brave step. Here at uGlow, we are industry innovators rather than industry followers.

The uGlow tanning water was an industry game-changer. We continue to strive to bring our professional clients and customers products that will leave them with the ultimate glow.

uGlow Luxury Body Moisturiser

Application and removal of self-tan is, of course, a major part of successful self-tanning. Educating our customers on the importance of moisturising and focusing on those dry patches prevents the self-tan from developing more intensely in those areas.

Developing a moisturising cream that worked in synergy with uGlow Tanning water was our next step in bringing our customers the ultimate glow.

Our Founder Louise worked with our cosmetic formulations to ensure that the moisturising cream was formulated to provide hydration to the skin and to nourish areas of skin that were dry and possibly rougher, such as elbows and heels.

uGlow Luxury Body Moisturiser

The challenge was always to have moisturising cream work with uGlow tanning water in offering the perfect level of hydration to the skin and thus leaving the skin ready to receive the benefits of uGlow self-tanning water. Not only was it important to create the perfect formulation, but there was also much to consider in the application and dispensing of the moisturising cream along with affordability. Less is more and only a peas sized amount is required when applying it to an area of the body.

After many hours in the lab finding the ideal formulation, we are super proud to add to the uGlow collection

uGlow: odourless self tan | FAQs

At uGlow, we strive to bring you the very best self-tanning products, and we want you to look and feel your best. Here are the latest uGlow FAQs to help you.

Q.    Do I need to exfoliate before I use uGlow?

A.    We recommend that you exfoliate 24hours prior to tan application, using the uGlow tan eraser and tan removal mitt. This removes dead skin cells, helping to promote even coverage and lengthens the duration of your glow.


Q.    Can I shave or wax after I have applied uGlow?

A.    We suggest that all hair removal is done 24hrs prior to applying uGlow.


Q.     Can I use make-up or moisturiser after I have applied uGlow?

A.     Yes, you can continue with your usual make-up routine after you have applied uGlow. Your glow will gradually develop on your skin underneath make-up.


Q.     How dark is the colour on first application?

A.     uGlow is designed to work with your skins natural tones. One application will develop a natural glow, further applications each day will intensify your glow.


Q.      How do I maintain my Glow?

A.      uGlow only affects the outermost layer of the skin (stratum corneum).  The longer the skin cells stay intact the longer you will keep your glow. Use a gentle moisturising bodywash and avoid using a body loofah. Try to avoid soaking in hot baths. When drying off after bathing, pat your skin dry versus rubbing vigorously with a towel. Regularly apply body moisturiser. When you are ready to shave or wax this would be the ideal time for a re-glow application of uGlow.


Q.      After applying the self-tan is there any lingering odour?

A.      Thanks to our odour neutralising technology, uGlow doesn’t smell like many other fake tanning products. We have left out any fragrance to allow you to apply your usual perfume after application. It’s your secret and mine.


Q.      Is there a concern about the self-tan staining my clothing and bed linen?

A.      uGlow uses clear water technology so there is no risk of colour marking your clothing or bedcovers.


Q.      How does uGlow work ?

A.      Oxidation with the active ingredients activates the tanning action. uGlow is the safest way to develop a natural glow to your skin, we have removed all unnecessary ingredients and added ingredients that the skin recognises.
