Tancream – A Tanning Product creating a stir in the Skincare world
February 27, 2019
The shelves at Tancream Towers are straining under the deluge of illustrious trophies awarded to the premium product – including Best New Sun Care and Tanning Product in the highly prestigious Pure Beauty Global Awards. And this iconic, luxury cream continues to dominate the suncare and tanning market – securing multiple health and beauty awards.
Never before has it been so essential to nourish your skin. Throughout every season, it remains essential to stay protected as sun damage can occur at any time. Ultraviolet rays are intense all year round and can penetrate through clouds – which means we are still exposed to cancer- causing and wrinkle-generating damage. And let’s face it, what could be better than ensuring self-care for your skin (the body’s biggest organ), throughout the winter months, while at the same time showing off that ‘I’ve just back from Gstaad’ healthy glow – which is why Tancream is your best weapon.
Following a hugely successful launch in 2017, Tancream has swiftly gained a devout following and been lauded across the national and international press as well as gaining numerous celebrity recommendations. The product is an unique daily moisturiser for face and body with high sun protection offering SPF50, 5 star UVA and an instant bronzer with a natural, gradual self tan. It is also scientifically proven to help prevent premature ageing and sun damaged skin.
Tancream now has over 100 stockists, ranging from department stores to spas and online retailers. The product, and its glamorous creators, Gillian Robson and Katy Foxcroft, have appeared in various magazines and newspapers around the globe as well as on TV and radio, and have launched into different sectors including travel, sport, salon and spas. A partnership deal has been cemented with a giant aesthetic distributor for the entire UK’s and Irish aesthetic market including clinics, salons and wholesalers.
The product was devised by the North Yorkshire mums, after Gillian was diagnosed with aggressive skin cancer. Following her recovery, they became committed to developing a sun lotion for safe body coverage with the added bonus of a rapid bronzer and beautiful tan. Armed with the help of leading sun care expert, Dr Jack Ferguson and cosmetic chemist Johanna Warren, they created this unique and potentially lifesaving creation – Tancream. The chemistry behind the product required the UK’s top suncare specialist formulating for over two years and Tancream has been endorsed by dermatologists.
“Sunscreen and Tanning agents are known to be incompatible but after three years of research and development, Tancream was created. It has a patent pending formula using latest sunscreen technology, natural phospholipids and a vegetable derived cationic emulsifier which amongst many attributes also conditions the skin and gives a feel soft effect. Tancream prevents sunburn, helps slow down skin ageing and gives a natural golden looking tan. We can say this is a major breakthrough in achieving a safe and healthy-looking tan.” Dr Jack Ferguson BSc PhD.
The talented team behind this iconic product are now working with various charities including MelanomaMe to help launch training courses entitled SPF (Skin Cancer Prevention in Families) 5 Star Accreditation to train health, beauty and wellness staff to identify skin problems. They also work with York Against Cancer to help fund dermatoscopes into GP surgeries to fast track skin cancer patients as well as Look Good Feel Better to aid women going through cancer treatment.
And ever the patriotic brand, Tancream, which is British made, sponsored the 2018 England’s Women’s Beach Volleyball team in the Commonwealth Games held on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.
