Chocolate Sun Absolute Sun is an all-natural sunless tanning cream for the face and whole body. This is their amped-up formula for a deeper tan made with the same proprietary blend of organic and wildcrafted botanicals chosen for their highly beneficial, skin nourishing properties. Shea Butter, coconut oil and Aloe Vera are also star ingredients in this moisturizing formula.
Chocolate Sun Absolute Sun will deliver a deep bronze, just-back-from-your-extended-vacation looking tan. Absolute Sun is most ideal for those who are experienced with self-tanning and desire a deeper tone to their color. If you are new to self tanning, it's best to start with the Cocoa Lite (light tanning lotion) or Cocoa Glow (medium tanning lotion) until you are familiar with the application process and still desire a deeper tan.
Full color develops over a 6-8 hour time period. Lotion should be kept in a cool, dark place, away from direct sunlight and heat sources.
"I get a rash from most self-tanners. So I found this great organic self-tanner, called Chocolate Sun. It's a lovely lotion that smells like chocolate and doesn't streak." –Actress Kristen Davis, SELF Magazine

Skin must be exfoliated, clean, dry and free of all other products. Shake product vigorously prior to application and prepare a damp cloth and a dry cloth prior to starting your application. These cloths will be used to wipe palms of hands every so often during application, to prevent product from settling into your skin.
Use gentle, broad, circular strokes for application to body - Overlap each stroke to avoid streaking and missed areas. It is best to let the product absorb into skin, rather aggressively rubbing into skin.
• PREP: Apply a thin layer of moisturizer onto tops and bottoms of your hands and feet, and don't forget in between fingers and toes. Also, feather a thin layer of lotion onto the inside of the bend of each of your wrists and down the sides of your ankles and heels.
• LEGS: Product should be applied starting at your ankles. Work one leg at a time, front and back. Remember to work product onto buttocks while working on the back of the legs, blending onto lower back.
• BACK: Continue applying product onto lower back, working your way up to the midsection of your back, and to upper back. This is a good time to wash hands, dry completely and begin the remainder of the body.
• STOMACH: Continue by applying product onto the stomach and around sides.
• CHEST: Apply to breast and chest area blending onto the neck, and over the tops of the shoulders until you have blended into the application done on the upper back.
• SHOULDERS AND ARMS: Starting at the top of the front of the shoulder, apply product working downward onto the front of arm until you reach the wrist. Next apply a lighter coat of product to the inside of arms. Very important to blend and overlap on arms. Blend lightly around armpit. Do not apply directly to armpit.
• FEET: Mix moisturizer with treatment in equal parts. Apply lightly, but thoroughly, to the tops of the feet blending onto the ankle, where the application began.
• FACE: Blend product from neck, onto face. This application is similar to applying foundation.
• HANDS: Mix moisturizer with treatment in equal parts. Apply lightly, but thoroughly, to the tops of hands, blending onto wrists. Remember to detail hands by wiping palms thoroughly as well as in between fingers.
• FINISHING TOUCHES: Utilize your prepared damp cloth to thoroughly wipe the palms of your hands and inside of your fingers. Roll a small soft hand towel and using the smooth side of the rolled towel, very lightly sweep over outer edges of armpits, wrists, ankles, hands, feet and the inside of arms. This will help blend application.
