  • What is Marula Oil?
    An incredibly nourishing potent elixir from the fruit of the Maurla tree. It is a non oily, light in texture oil which is quickly absorbed into the skin leaving it feel smooth, plump and hydrated allowing your tan to last even longer.
  • Can I use australis while pregnant?
    It is typically only the top layer of the skin that’s affected by DHA (Dihydroxyacetone), and shouldn’t have any harmful effects while pregnant.
    If you’re unsure, it’s always best to double-check with your doctor. To be extra cautious we recommend covering your mouth, nose and eyes when applying to prevent inhaling the products. Additionally do not apply to the breast area if breastfeeding.
    It can also be helpful to do a skin test before self-tanning, as hormone levels can fluctuate throughout pregnancy.
  • How long will my tan last?
    Your australis tan should last between 5 – 7 days, and with good preparation and moisturising it can last even longer. However, everyone’s skin naturally exfoliates at a different rate.
  • Will my tan go patchy if I exercise?
    Your tan should stay even and streak-free while exercising, however heavy sweating on a regular basis can result in fading.
