Today we are excited to dive into the nitty gritty of the ingredients that make up one of our best selling sunless solutions. Obsidian Sunless has been a customer favorite ever since it was launched and we could not be more proud of the feedback we’ve gotten over the last few years. We owe all the rave to the specialty blend of beautiful ingredients that sets Obsidian apart. This skin-loving formulation offers the versatility to be used as a 8-hour or rapid rinse solution.

The ingredients used in this product were not only intended to produce breathtaking sunless results, but also offer an experience that feels incredible to the skin. From the moment the solution starts working its magic to long after the first rinse, Obsidian offers nourishment and hydration for a finish that is soft and smooth to the touch. If you’re not already fully obsessed with what this solution has to offer you and your clients, let’s highlight just a few of the ingredients that allows Obsidian Sunless to create the ultimate healthy sunless glow.
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice a.k.a Organic Aloe Vera
Aloe is an ingredient that many of us are familiar with in terms of the way that it works to help soothe the skin after a sunburn.The is exactly the reason we’ve chosen this ingredient to be a great addition to our sunless tanning solution! According to Baylor College of Medicine, Aloe Vera provides healing anti-inflammatory properties and is rich in antioxidants, enzymes, as well as vitamins A and C. This ingredient was a perfect fit for helping to add moisture while giving an overall smooth feel and appearance to the skin. The antioxidants that are naturally occurring in aloe also help reduce signs of aging! Anything we can do to provide products that fight fine lines and wrinkles is a win in our book!
Although this ingredient is a little less recognizable as Aloe Vera, if you’ve ever worked in the cosmetics industry, you may recognize Caprylic Triglyceride as an emollient that is often used in makeup and skincare products. This ingredient is typically chosen in the cosmetic and esthetics industry because it interacts well with other ingredients and is safe from creating skin reactions for the majority of people. According to an interview on Byrdie done with dermatologist Ife Rodney, Caprylic Triglyceride is derived from the fatty acids of coconut oil and combined with glycerine. Some of the benefits of this well-rounded ingredient include being a smoothing and moisturizing agent to the skin and providing antioxidants that reduce the signs of aging skin. In addition to those benefits, due to the antimicrobial properties of coconut oil, this ingredient helps to rebalance the microbiome of the skin while intervening in bacteria growth.
This ingredient may be at the top of the list of all time favorites that we’ve included in this list of high quality naturally derived ingredients formulated for Obsidian Sunless. Did you know that Hyaluronic Acid is an ingredient that is already naturally produced by our bodies to retain moisture? We like to think of Hyaluronic Acid as an extra quench of hydration to the skin. Since this acid acts as a moisturizer for dry and depleted skin, it also has age fighting benefits that help reduce the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles, according to Healthline.com.
