Self Tanners Are More Popular Than Ever

Popular Self TannersYou’ve probably noticed that everyone and their mother is using self tanners these days.  If you’ve ever wondered “why?” keep reading…

A recent report from IBISWorld reveals that self tanning manufacturers have “experienced meteoric growth since the turn of the millennium, and are set to continue on this growth trajectory during the five years to 2019.”

In fact, the revenue in the self tanning industry is projected to be around $763 million, with an annual growth rate that is just over 15 percent.

So Why Are Self Tanners So Popular Right Now?

Statistics provided by the Skin Cancer Foundation indicate that, in the U.S. alone, nearly five million people are treated annually for some time of skin cancer.

Even more astonishing is that there are more new skin cancer cases each year than breast, prostate, colon, and lung cancer combined.

These types of numbers are a big reason why self tanners are so popular right now.  That, and the fact that a tan makes people look awesome!

More Brands Are Getting In On the Action

As one would expect, more and more companies want a piece of the self tanning pie and are coming up with their own line of products.

This means more brands are available, along with a greater color scheme and various application methods from which to choose, ranging from creams and lotions to sprays or towelettes.

While this is good news in terms of selection, it can also make it harder to know which brands are the best and which ones are behind the orange and striped self tanning nightmares we hear so much about.

This can leave you spending hours online or standing and staring at the store shelf wondering which ones to buy and which ones are best left for Halloween.
