What is Nu-Tan™?


Less Sun Exposure

Because Nu-Tan™ increases the level of your natural ability to tan, you will get a deep tan without having to spend hours in the harsh rays of the sun. In just 30 to 60 minutes every second or third day, you will be browner than ever. By reducing the amount of time that you spend in the sun, you minimise the chance of developing skin cancer, sun spots, and the telltale signs of ageing.

Easy to Use

This product is easy to use. Simply stick and sleep...remove the following morning!


The patch or sprays can all be applied/used in seconds. Then, a quick 30 to 60 minutes in the sun a few times a week is all it takes to get an impressive tan. You can achieve a great brown glow without the hassle of spending hours in specialised spray treatments or lying in the sun.

Backed by Science

Nu-Tan™ was established in 2009, using our own formula that was developed locally. Then, in 2015, we acquired our own patent for the revolutionary Nu-Tan™ patches.

With over 9 years and thousands of research behind it, Nu-Tan™ is a well-established product. In South Africa alone, more than 15 000 candidates have used or tested it since 2009, with no long- term side effects. This attests to its success and excellent reputation and loyal custom.


You will use the patch every one to three days in the loading phase, depending on how quickly you want to get your tan. Then, you will need to lie in the sun for about 30 to 60 minutes or the Solarium for about 10 to 15 minutes on the days that you use the patch. The more often you use the patch and get UV exposure (i.e. every day as opposed to every third day), the quicker you will tan. Once you have achieved the golden tan you’re after, it is advised that you reduce your use of the patch to every third day as part of your maintenance phase (this will also make your patches last longer). It is crucial that you get some sun on the day that you wore the patch the night prior.

The patches are simply put onto your skin (usually somewhere out of the way, like the outer part of the upper arm). 

There are no side effects (other than a little redness where the patch was applied, which disappears within a few hours)



 There are three ways to use the patches:

  1. UV Sessions Daily (FAST)
If you want to see results quickly, you can apply one patch daily. Each day you will need to commit to one UV session.
    1. UV Sessions Every Second Day (STANDARD)

    If you want to build a more gradual tan, you can use the patch every second day. To achieve this, you will need to apply one patch every second day and commit to a UV session every second day

    1. UV Sessions Every Third Day (GRADUAL)

    Another way to achieve a more gradual tan is by applying a patch every third day.  This method takes longer but is ideal if you don’t have the time to commit to UV sessions. If you use the patches this way, you’ll only need to have a UV session every third day.

    Once you have the perfect tan, one patch is to be used twice a week with UV to maintain your tan and keep it long lasting.


    Instructions on how to apply the patches:

    Open the patch carefully, watching out never to touch the inside of the patch where the micro needles are. Then, stick one patch to your skin and press it down with your palm to make sure that the micro structures enter your skin properly. You should feel it like bristles on your skin. It can be placed anywhere on your body, but on the upper part of the outer arm is often the least invasive and most comfortable.

    Each patch should stay firmly on your skin for at least two hours to allow them time to penetrate and dissolve properly. To ensure that the patch is ready to be removed, press down on the patch. If you feel nothing, the patch can be removed. If there is still a slightly prickly sensation, leave the patch on for longer.

    Pro tip: attach the patch before you go to bed and remove it the next morning. This is the best way to make sure that it dissolves completely.

    The glue on the patch may leave a slightly red mark for a few hours after the patch is removed. Other than this, there are no side effects.

    KEEP YOUR PATCHES OR SPRAYS AWAY FROM EXTREME HEAT AND DIRECT SUNLIGHT. High heat and humidity will make the micro structures melt and your patch will not easily stick to your skin. Keep spray bottles upright to avoid spillage.
