FSS Tanning Accelerator

Preserved with Leucidal Liquid


For many the perfect tan seems to be just beyond reach as we can’t seem to take time out of our busy schedules to relax outside or go to the local tanning salon as often as we would like. Fortunately research investigating the mechanism by which tanning occurs has allowed us to develop FSS Tanning Accelerator which provides the skin with vital nutrients to optimize tanning. Tyrosine is an amino acid that functions as a precursor to melanin, a pigment that is the primary component responsible for the color of our skin, hair and eyes.
Two different types of melanin are pheomelanin, which is a yellow to reddish color and eumelanin that is typically a black or brown color. When we tan, melanocytes produce melanin in melanosomes. During melanin synthesis tyrosine is converted to 3,4 – Dihydroxyphenylanine which is then converted to dopa quinone. Melanin is then produced either directly from dopa quinone or following the conversion of several different intermediates. Zinc also functions as a cofactor for melanogenesis as it catalyzes the conversion of L‐dopadihydyroxyindole‐2‐carboxylic acid, an intermediate converted to melanin. Following synthesis, the melanosome is transferred to keratinocytes. Melanin granules then proceed along the differentiation pathway moving up through to epidermal layers for expression on the stratum corneum. By priming the skin with tyrosine, the substrate required for melanin synthesis we may optimize melanogenesis.


FSS Tanning Accelerator contains both tyrosine and bio-chelated zinc and utilizes liposomes to maximize delivery into the skin. By fermenting zinc with yeast we are able to complex zinc with peptides to increase bioavailability for optimal use. Adding FSS Tanning Accelerator to tanning lotions may allow formulators to increase the level of tyrosine present to facilitate tanning to achieve a deeper, more even, faster appearing tan.  Additional claims for tanning accelerators are referenced in U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Federal Register Vol. 58., no. 90, p 28194 at p. 28293.
