HOW DOES IT MAKE ME TAN?
Urucum seeds are famous for their high concentration of antioxidants bixin, norbixin, carotenoids and beta-carotene. These are compounds responsible for contributing to the formation of melanin. Melanin is a skin pigment that darkens the skin and helps protect the skin from UV rays.
Urucum and it's effect on the skin helps maintain suppleness and prevent the appearance of blemishes. If you’ve ever heard that you’ll turn orange after eating enough carrots, - think about this, urucum seeds have more than 100 times more beta-carotene than a carrot.

Okay fine, you don't want to turn into a carrot. But you do get a beautiful bronze color. The deep reddish hue in the seed is the same color that carries over into the skin. This base of color paired with the higher level of melanin helps accelerate your tan while preventing sunburn.
HOW TO USE?
For best results, use BRONZEBUM Urucum supplements and tanning lotion together.
Take BRONZEBUM Urucum supplements for 1 week. After 1 week, you will notice a slight bronze undertone. Take 3 in the morning with a large glass of water, and then 3 in the evening so that the body can fully absorb the beta-carotene and nutrition each time. (Otherwise, any excess nutrition that the body can’t absorb can get flushed out!) By doing so, your skin will start producing more melanin and collagen. It’s best not to skip any days to see the best results.
This will give your skin a great base tone to start with and make skin more resilient to increased UVB exposure. As you spend time in the sun, your skin will deepen in that bronze color.
When tanning, BRONZEBUM’s tanning lotion will contribute to the bronze color. It is Urucum based and the beta-carotene will feed the bronze-ness. In addition, the Grape Seed Oil, Raw Shea Butter, Tomato Lycopene, and other ingredients fight UVB rays effect on skin, reverse cell damage, reduce wrinkles, and replenish skin’s moisture. Tanning lotion has a light-medium oily feel and absorbs into skin in 15-20 minutes. Re-apply as needed.
If you want to keep your tan, but don’t want to keep spending time in the sun - taking Urucum supplements regularly can prolong your tan for up to 2 weeks without additional exposure to sun.

The melanin makes skin more resilient to free radicals from the environment (like UVB rays) and the collagen makes skin firm and radiant. The combination of the increased melanin and collagen gives skin a healthy glow and an overall luminous appearance. Use it to get ready for a beach vacation or when the weather starts getting warm.
