Betatan offers a unique range of products that allow users to easily get a golden natural tan without spending hours in the sun or using messy self-tan creams and lotions. Betatan products are made of natural peptides that stimulate the body’s own melanin production, and as the levels of melanin increase in the body the skin naturally starts to darken giving the user an even golden glow.

The Benefits:
- An even all-over tan
- Long lasting tan
- For both men & women
- Works with limited or no sun exposure
- Protects you from sun burn

The safer, smarter option to natural tanning!
When exposing our skin to the sun’s harmful UV rays we expose it to serious damage which causes the skin to age quicker and increases our risk of developing lines, wrinkles and ages spots. Melanotan is designed to allow people to achieve a golden tan with minimal sun exposure, thus allowing them to achieve their desired tan without risking UV damage.  

Betatan’s other impressive benefits
Aside from it’s incredible tanning effects, Betatan also has other impressive benefits:

Improved fat loss –Melanotan helps to metabolize both visceral and subcutaneous fat, and may help to boost weight loss efforts.

Reduced appetite – As an added bonus to its fat-burning effects, Melanotan also works to reduce appetite, which can be helpful for those trying to lose weight through a calorie-controlled diet.

- How long does a cartridge last?
How long an injectable 3ml cartridge lasts depends on each person using the product. New users and those who have not used the product for a while will use a loading dosage of 10 units per day and a cartridge will last between 30 days. Users who have used the product before will use a maintenance dosage of 10 units every second day and the bottle will last approximately 60 days, users can adjust the dosage and use less if the desired tan has been reached. See our how to pages below for more information on how to use the product. For the best results its recommended that new users and those who have not used the product for a while complete both the loading and maintenance dosages.

- How long to get results?
It is important to note that the product does not work instantly, it takes time for the product to stimulate melanin production in the body and our customers generally start to see results after 25-35 days. UV exposure helps activate the product and customers can see faster results by sunbathing or using a sun bed.

- Do you need to spend long hours in the sun?
No… The product will naturally stimulate melanin production without any sun exposure. Even though the product can work without any sun exposure the user can activate the product quicker by spending short periods of time in the sun, this will result in a faster, even longer lasting tan. 

- How long does the tan last?
If used correctly the user can have a tan that lasts between 2-3 months before the tan starts to fade. It is suggested to keep maintaining the tan by using the product continuously.

- How does it work?
To understand how it works, we must first explain how the tanning process works within our bodies. When the skin is exposed to the sun, it produces a pigment called melanin which is designed to protect the skin from damage caused by UV rays. Melanin is produced by specific cells called melanocytes. When the peptide Melanotan is introduced into the skin, it essentially ‘switches on’ these melanocytes so that they can produce melanin more efficiently. The result? When skin is exposed to the sun for just a short time, it produces an increased amount of melanin than it usually would. This means that you can spend just 10 minutes outside in the sunshine, and see your skin tone develop into a beautifully rich, warm tan that would have taken hours of sun exposure to produce without Melanotan.

- What is Melanotan?
Melanotan is a peptide (chain of amino acids) that once entered into the hepatic system it stimulates your body’s own melanin (pigment making hormone). This process happens with or without sunlight stimulation; however some sunlight does activate the product faster.
