What is Urucum Seed and how does it protect against UV rays?
Urucum Seed is a natural ingredient used in Ubatuba Tan's tanning oils that provides protection against UV rays. Urucum Seed has a high content of carotenoids, which are natural pigments that provide protection against UV rays and free radicals. The Urucum pigment, called Bixin, promotes topical calming action on the skin while protecting against the ultraviolet rays and providing beneficial antioxidant properties. Urucum Seed has six times more beta-carotenes than carrots, which can help accelerate and deepen the tan, providing a longer-lasting, deeper tan. The combination of Urucum Seed with other natural ingredients such as Sweet Almond Oil, Coconut Oil, and Rose Hip Oil helps to hydrate and nourish the skin, while Vitamin E and Wheat Germ Oil provide antioxidant properties. The use of Urucum Seed in Ubatuba Tan's tanning oils helps to provide a deeper, longer-lasting tan while also hydrating and protecting the skin.
