Made popular by Coco-Channel in 1920 by mere accident, sunbathing became a science on its own. Too much sun, and premature signs of aging along with skin cancer develops. Too little sun and a series of illnesses produced by Vitamin D deficiency appear. Whichever your reason for tanning, avoid those tanning oils formulated with dubious ingredients and possible carcinogens.

Cocco Tanning Oil does not offer any SPF protection. Some caution needs to be exercised when sunbathing with this oil. See below How to Achieve a Darker Tan that Will Last for Longer for tips and best hours for sun exposure.

the what and the how


Organic Virgin Coconut Oil

Organic virgin coconut oil is renowned for its deep moisturizing and nourishing properties, making it an ideal ingredient for tanning oil. Its unique composition of fatty acids, particularly lauric acid, allows it to penetrate the skin more effectively than many other oils, ensuring deep hydration. This not only helps to maintain skin's elasticity and softness but also provides a protective barrier against environmental pollutants and the drying effects of the sun. The antioxidant properties of coconut oil further support skin health by combating free radicals, reducing the appearance of signs of aging, and enhancing the skin's natural glow.

Vitamin E (DL-alpha-Tocopheryl acetate)

Vitamin E, in the form of DL-alpha-Tocopheryl acetate, acts as a powerful antioxidant in skincare formulations. This essential nutrient contributes significantly to the protection of skin cells from harmful UV radiation and environmental stressors that can lead to premature aging. By reinforcing the skin's natural barrier function, Vitamin E helps to retain moisture, ensuring the skin remains supple, hydrated, and less prone to peeling after sun exposure. Its restorative properties also aid in the healing process of the skin, making it a crucial component of any tanning oil for maintaining healthy, resilient skin during and after sun exposure.

Coconut oil solidifies at around 76°F. To melt the oil, simply place the bottle in a container filled with hot water. In a few minutes, the oil will be fluid again.

AS A TANNING OIL - Apply generously 10-15 minutes before sun exposure. Repeat as needed.

WARNING: This product does not contain any sunscreen and will not prevent sunburn. Use caution and limit the amount of time exposed to sun or tanning beds. Repeated and prolonged sun exposure or indoor tanning can increase skin aging and the risk for developing skin cancer. Avoid sun bathing between 10am and 4pm.

AS A MOISTURIZING OIL - Apply liberally after a warm shower while skin is still wet. Pat dry with towel. Your skin will feel soft and moisturized all day.

FOR YOUR DRY OR FRIZZY HAIR - Pour a little COCCO in the palm of your hands, and heat it up in your palms. Grab sections of your hair, and apply the coconut oil through evenly. A little goes a long way! The idea is to coat your hair with a little oil, rather than wet the hair. Don’t apply it to your scalp unless your hair really needs the extra nourishment. Comb your hair with a wide-tooth comb. Wrap it
in a bun, or a tight braid, and let the heat of the summer just help absorb it. The longer you leave it in, the better. You'll love the beach smell and the natural beach-wave look. Not going out in the sun or no heat in your city? Then use a shower-cap around your house or blow-dryer if you want to speed up the process. After a few hours, shampoo with a mild natural shampoo. You'll love how soft and manageable your hair feels.

How to Achieve a Darker Tan that Will Last for Longer.

Apply Cocco Tanning Oil 15-20 minutes before heading outside. Avoid prolonged sun exposure during the hottest hours of the day -- between 10am-4pm -- as the sun rays are perpendicular to earth and burning of the skin may occur. Tan for no more than 15-20 minutes a day in the morning hours or after 4pm. It will take you longer to achieve a darker tan but it will also last longer. Once the desired color is achieved decrease your sun exposure to 2-3 days a week.

Only responsible tanning ensures you remain safe while developing a nice golden color while producing the so much needed Vitamin D.

Tan responsibly!
