Additionally, there is a lot of scaremongering and misinformation around with regards to tanning tablets. In this article, we will clear things up and give you the full breakdown of all the potential side effects.

Of course, all supplements have the potential for side effects, but that doesn’t mean that they are common or that most people will experience them.


It is important to remember that not all tanning pills have the same ingredients. Therefore, the potential side effects can differ depending on the ingredients that are present within the tablets.

Our tablets use FDA approved ingredients that are completely natural. This means that side effects are not usually experienced. We are completely transparent with the full list of ingredients which go into our tan tablets.

The main ingredient found in our tablets is PABA (Para-aminobenzoic Acid), and this can also be referred to as Vitamin B. It is found in many foods such as liver, kidney, and whole grains. This ingredient is also found in sunscreen.

The substance has FDA approval. PABA is safe when taken in normal doses. However, high doses of more than 12 grams a day can potentially cause side effects such as kidney and liver problems. This is nothing to worry about since our tablets don’t contain anywhere near this amount.

Other ingredients include L-Tyrosine, which is a common and popular supplement. It has been rigorously tested and has full FDA approval. It has been proven to be completely safe in oral doses. One ingredient that combines with PABA to aid pigmentation (darkening of the skin) is Copper Gluconate.

This is another naturally occurring substance that has no evidence of side effects at smaller doses.

If you take any other type of capsules, then it is likely you have already taken Magnesium Stearate. This is the binding agent used, and it has no side effects in normal usage.

In high amounts, it can cause potential stomach issues; however normal use of tanning tablets will not come anywhere near to the amount required to cause any ill effects. The rest of the ingredients are all-natural supplements which are not known to cause any side effects, and they have FDA approval which requires rigorous testing.

However, there are other tanning pills which have an ingredient known as Beta-Carotene. Although this substance is generally safe, there have been notable reports of some serious side effects.

Additionally, it is only safe at very low doses. Tanning tablets contain a high dose and are therefore more susceptible to side effects. These include discolouration of palms and hands, stomach cramps, and serious blood disorders.

This is why this ingredient is not FDA approved for the purposes of tanning. It is only approved at very low doses to reduce sun sensitivity.

Our tablets do not contain Beta-Carotene, and this is for a good reason. We are dedicated to ensuring that our tablets and completely safe for everyone.

They produce no major side effects at the recommended doses, and every single ingredient has full FDA approval. If you use a beta-carotene based tanning tablet, then you should be wary of the potential problems listed above.
