New Ingredient Vitamin D

First Fake Bake introduced skincare benefits like anti-ageing, anti cellulite and anti-oxidants into it’s advanced self-tan formulas. Now, Vitamin D – The ‘sunshine’ vitamin has been harnessed and bottled by Fake Bake to improve health and wellness.

The Benefits

Vitamin D’s major contribution to improved wellness is it’s ability to increase the flow of Calcium into the bloodstream:

  • Stronger immune system.
  • Stronger bones.
  • Reduces the risk of developing heart disease (prevents build up of calcium deposits in arteries).
  • Regulates insulin levels, thus reducing the risk of developing diabetes.
  • Lowers the risk of developing prostate, breast, and bowel cancer, along with ‘essential’ hypertension, osteoporosis, and tuberculosis.
  • Vitamin D has also been linked to reducing depression during winter months (combats SAD syndrome).

The Detail

The experts at Fake Bake have managed to incorporate Vitamin D into their tanning range, mimicking the body’s natural ability to create the vitamin through the skin. Vitamin D is naturally produced by your body when ultraviolet rays from sunlight strike your skin. However, research has shown that in our busy lifestyles and the weather conditions in the northern hemisphere (especially during winter months) more people are suffering from vitamin D deficiency.

“Vitamin D deficiency can result in impaired bone mineralization and leading to bone softening diseases, rickets and osteomalacia, and possibly contributes to osteoporosis.
Vitamin D deficiency has also been linked to breast cancer” - American Society of Clinical Oncology’s Breast Cancer Symposium

Perhaps Vitamin D’s most important role is to increase the flow of calcium into the bloodstream, by promoting absorption of calcium and phosphorus from food in the intestines, and reabsorption of calcium in the kidneys; enabling normal mineralization of bone and preventing hypocalcemic tetany. It is also necessary for bone growth and bone remodeling by osteoblasts and osteoclasts.

If there was ever a safe substitute to the sun, it’s Fake Bake – all the goodness without the nasty bits!
