Why we need it:

Each year skin cancer claims nearly 2000 lives in the UK and kills more than 55,500 worldwide. Here in the UK we are slowly becoming more sun aware, but we have a long way to go and skin cancer rates are rising annually.

The sun is the main cause of premature aging and skin cancer is  the sun’s rays. UVA and UVB rays are two types of ultraviolet rays that can cause harm to unprotected skin.  UVB is responsible for the sunburn and UVA is increasingly being implicated in various types of skin cancer and skin aging. UVA rays can damage your skin even when it is cloudy or in winter.

Wearing sun cream helps reduce the risk of premature aging and skin cancer. SPF stands for sun protection factor. Sunscreens are classified by an SPF number which refers to their ability to deflect UVB rays. SPF 50 means that your skin can be exposed to the sun 50 times longer than if was unprotected.

Tancream has the ultra protection level of SPF 50 and UVA 5 stars meaning that it protects against deep penetrating UVA and UVB rays that can damage skin.
Fake it, don't bake it with this clever bronzer: an instant tan that gradually builds with a broad spectrum SPF50 and antioxidants to further protect the skin.SPF 50 Sunscreen UVA Ultra Protection Self Tan – Gradually develops without odour or streaking Bronzer – Light instant glow to help application Hydrating – Nourish the skin with a silky finish Anti-Ageing, Anti-Oxidants, Paraben Free, Cruelty Free Streak resistant.

Use Tancream daily, even in winter or in cloudy conditions, so your skin is always protected.

Tancream has superior moisturising properties and an instant natural tint, so only one daily application to your skin is needed to give an even tone leaving a smooth silky texture.

The gradual self-tan will work after a few hours and build up to produce a healthy colour and daily use will maintain your tan whilst protecting your skin from damage.

The specially designed formula also inhibits the development of a ‘self-tan smell’ and is completely odour free.

Face– Apply evenly to face and neck with finger tips in circular movements, avoiding the eyes & eyebrows. Tancream will give you instant warmth and coverage of blemishes, age spots and scarring allowing you to be make-up free.

Body – Apply evenly, working in circular movements to all exposed areas. The instant warm bronzer will give you a great guide to your application, is easily absorbed and will leave your skin looking and feeling luxuriously smooth.

Clinicians, aestheticians, chemists, scientists, dermatologists, doctors and specialists all believe Tancream to be the product the industry has been waiting for.

Having received glowing media reviews, awards, and celebrity endorsements, Tancream is on its way to going global.

What the dermatologists say:
“As a dermatologist, I see the negative effects of over-exposing skin to the sun. The concept of an effective SPF 50 combined with a tanning agent is fantastic. So while the skin is fully protected, the wearer can achieve a healthy-looking glow. I love the premium feel of the lotion when applied to the skin and I am sure there will be a huge demand for Tancream.”

The formula

Tancream™ carefully blends sunscreen and sunless tanning agents to create an innovative luxury face and body lotion offering SPF 50, a superior self tan, a tint of natural bronzer and moisturising properties – all in one bottle.

Tancream is unique. Combining an SPF50 with a gradual daily self-tan, might seem obvious, however it has never been achieved before as the chemistry involved in combining the active ingredients is complicated.

The formula for Tancream has been developed by the UK’s top suncare specialists and took two years of intensive research. It has a unique patent pending status and has been endorsed by leading dermatologists.

The Founders


Co-Founder and CEO of Tancream, Gillian Robson’s life changed dramatically four years ago when she found a mole on her leg that had changed. Within a few days she was undergoing surgery for skin cancer and has had many more moles removed since.

At this time, Gillian was a busy mum running her own successful beauty business. She was advised to wear high protection sun cream SPF50, 5 star UVA, even in winter. As she liked to have a tan, she used fake tan. Rather than using lots of different products in her morning skin care routine, she searched worldwide for a product that she could use every day that did everything she needed it to do. It soon became apparent that there wasn’t anything available. So she decided to try and develop her own.


Gillian teamed up with Katy Foxcroft, Co-founder and Director of Tancream and together the pair worked hard to find out how such a formulation could be developed. They met Dr Jack Ferguson at a cosmetic industry event and explained what they were trying to do.

“We knew we were onto something when we were offered lunch and not back sitting in our car after 10 minutes!” Katy and Gillian have worked hard to secure a robust supply chain to ensure stability and a clear strategy for future growth. Stocking 3 retail stores within a matter of hours of their first production run is an impressive start.
