BEHIND THREE WARRIORS
The Three Warriors Tan product line was created for those who want to maintain a safe and natural looking tan whilst considering the health of their skin, their biggest organ. When sourcing the purest ingredients for the TW organic range, Corbin didn’t need to look further than his own home, Tasmania.
For The Love of Self Tanning
Born from a love of self-tanning, Three Warriors CEO/Founder Corbin Halliday was discouraged by the limited range of certified toxic-free and organic tan that didn’t compromise on colour.
Before & After
In 2014 Corbin’s health deteriorated, and a clean tanning option fast became a non-negotiable.
Indulgences are proud to be Three Warriors Tan stockists here in Australia.
Fake tanning is in, but it’s hard to find a product that doesn’t contain nasty chemicals.
It’s not enough to just be organic when you’re putting something on your skin. You need to know how it works and what goes into the final product. That’s why we’ve created this guide for you!
We are Three Warriors – two sisters who love looking after their skin with natural products, plus one friend who has been developing beauty products since he was 12 years old (and yes, he really did have a lab coat). We want everyone else to enjoy our passion for healthy skincare too so we have made an easy-to-follow guide of all the things that aren’t allowed in fake tans or spray tan solutions. At Three Warriors we only use ingredients that are approved by the European Cosmetic Directive and Food Standards Australia New Zealand NZFSA .
Every plant-derived ingredient has been ethically sourced and purposefully chosen for its skin-nourishing properties.
Three Warriors Tan is the first organic tanning company to give back to social and environmental change, with 10% of all profits donated to Wello Water, a social enterprise facilitating life-changing water projects.
WHO ARE THREE WARRIORS?
They are a brand that cares, bringing salon quality organic, natural fake tans, spray tanning solutions, face tan and tanning scrubs to the world, minus the nasties. With the finest ingredients sourced from Hobart, Tasmania (their home state), Three Warriors is the only natural sunless tan range that has healing benefits and will leave you glowing from the inside out.
WHY ORGANIC FAKE TAN?
The Three Warriors believe you deserve a flawless natural tan, minus the bad stuff.
They believe you don’t need to compromise on ingredients to achieve a natural tan. With Three Warriors, you can trust their tanning products and spray tan solutions are organic, toxic-free, cruelty-free and will nourish your body without any nasties commonly found in fake tan (and face tan).
Think of it this way – toxins are like a bad ex, they hang around. They are absorbed through the surface of the skin and enter into our bloodstream, risking systemic changes throughout the body which can have lasting effects.
While they like to stay in our own lane at Three Warriors, it is important to note, most tanning products (including face tan and spray tan solutions) are packed with hidden nasties that don’t just stay skin deep.
By purchasing Three Warriors you can trust you are always using tanning products that are organic, natural for your body and face (because they also do face tan) are cruelty-free, environmentally conscious and are organic tans that are proudly Australian made.
The sunless tanning products and tanning scrubs are also certified by Toxic Free Safe Cosmetics Australia and the Organic Food Chain (OFC).
WHAT DOES ‘CERTIFIED ORGANIC’ FAKE TAN MEAN?
For a fake tan or natural gradual tan product to be ‘Certified Organic’ it must contain a minimum of 70 per cent organic ingredients and the rest of the tan must be all-natural. At Three Warriors they have designed their tanning products to meet the ‘Certified Organic’ guidelines including organic spray tan, organic fake tan and organic tanning scrubs.
In addition to being certified by the Organic Food Chain (OFC), they are also certified by the Toxic-Free Safe Cosmetics Australia council. This means all their Three Warriors organic fake tan products are free-range, cruelty-free, socially responsible, sourced without genetic modifications, hormones, antibiotics, synthetic pesticides and herbicides.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CERTIFIED ORGANIC AND JUST NATURAL?
The key difference between the two is that for a tanning product to be recognised as ‘Certified Organic’ the organic tan must have at least 70 per cent of ingredients (as mentioned above) and the remaining ingredients natural.
Whereas any fake tan or gradual tan brand can claim to be a ‘natural tan’ even if only a few key ingredients are natural. To ensure you’re always buying a safe, toxic-free, natural tan and organic tan like Three Warriors, check the label for certifications such as Certified Organic and Toxic Free Safe Cosmetics Australia.
ARE THREE WARRIORS VEGAN?
Vegan and vegetarian warriors can rest at ease, they have got you covered. their sell-out Three Warriors Face Tan Aqua Mist is 100 per cent vegan (yes that’s right…completely organic, natural fake tan!).
Meanwhile, the rest of the Three Warriors tanning products and tanning scrubs are deemed vegetarian, as they use Tasmanian Manuka and Leatherwood Honey because of their unrivalled natural healing properties.
ARE THREE WARRIORS PRODUCTS TESTED ON ANIMALS?
Absolutely not! They are a natural tan brand that not only prides itself as being ‘Certified Organic,’ Australian Made and Toxic-Free (as certified by the Australian Toxic-Free Organisation) but is also certified by the Australian Cruelty-Free Association. This means their tanning products and key fake tan ingredients are not and will never be the result of animal cruelty.
ARE THREE WARRIORS SAFE TO USE WHEN PREGNANT?
Absolutely! All Three Warriors tanning products and tanning scrubs contain organic, plant and vegetable-derived ingredients, which are certified by the OFC as well as Toxic-Free Safe Cosmetics Australia. So, very safe for their Warrior mums!
DO THREE WARRIORS PRODUCTS PROTECT YOU FROM THE SUN?
No, none of their natural fake tans, tanning products and tanning scrubs will protect your skin from the sun. It’s so important that their warriors take the recommended sun safety precautions by using high grade, toxic-free sunscreen and checking out the official guidelines on the Cancer Council page here.

HOW QUICKLY WILL MY NATURAL FAKE TAN DEVELOP AFTER APPLYING?
This all depends on the Three Warriors tanning product you choose to go for!

WILL THREE WARRIORS PRODUCTS STAIN MY SHEETS OR CLOTHING?
As natural and organic tan products, Three Warriors not only uses the highest quality natural ingredients (read: no toxins) their fake tan doesn’t contain the same toxic chemicals that usually appear in tanning products, instead of using plant and vegetable derived ingredients. What does this mean?
With non-toxic pigments used it’s a lot less likely to transfer to clothes and sheets. However, they recommend all their warriors wear loose and dark clothing while the tan develops, just to be on the safe side! The same goes for sheets! If any tanning products do transfer to sheets or clothing, be assured that their ingredients are water-soluble and should wash out – no staining agents are in the products.
HOW LONG WILL FAKE TAN LAST WITH EACH THREE WARRIOR PRODUCT?
Well, warriors, this one is all down to you and the fake tan or tanning product you choose to use! All of their Three Warriors tanning products have the ability to last a while, depending on how regularly you choose to apply them!
The Three Warriors Gradual Tan works to develop over time and be worn every day for a slow, steady natural tan progression, so with this natural fake tan (and their face tan), the sky is the limit! Keep applying daily for an ongoing glow.
If you are a little lazy or just too busy to do it daily, the Three Warriors Self-Tan Mousse needs only 1-2 applications (depending how dark you wish to go with your face tan and fake tan) and will last approximately seven days.

All the Three Warriors products come with a how-to guide with directions for usage, application and tips on achieving the best natural fake tan.

WILL MY FAKE TAN BECOME PATCHY IF I EXERCISE?
So you like to work up a sweat? That doesn’t mean you can’t boast a golden glow while you do it! All their Three Warriors natural fake tan products are designed to ensure you get the best faux glow minus a patchy fake tan or patchy spray tan look.
While they do their best to ensure the tanning products are of the highest quality, organic tan ingredients, sometimes sweating after a spray tan or a patchy spray tan happens. Be it clothes rubbing against a fresh spray tan or a little post-exercise sweat, patchy fake tan can happen.
To make sure it doesn’t they recommend wearing dark clothes, minimal undergarments while it’s drying (if possible!) and a shower to wash off the fake tan residue before exercising! For more tips on fixing a patchy fake tan or a patchy spray tan, see their tips on how to fix a streaky tan directly below.
CAN I SWIM IN MY TAN?
At Three Warriors, we get that their warriors often lead an active, Australian beach lifestyle so by all means go for a swim in your tan.
However, be mindful that most gradual tan, fake tan and spray tan solutions won’t last longer than 5-10 days. And often swimming in your tan can shorten the lifespan. Why? Because skin cells shed every 10 days and as skin cells shed, so too does your faux glow (aka fake tan).
Be it heavy sweating from exercise, water, chlorine from the pool – all will naturally dry out your skin and make skin cells shed more quickly. This means that natural fake tan won’t last as long. So do your best to moisturise daily and then hit refresh weekly using their Tasmanian Sand Scrub to scrub, tan, repeat all Summer long!
EEEK! I’VE SOMEHOW GOT A STREAKY TAN. HELP!
At Three Warriors they are committed to giving you a golden glow and natural fake tan every time. But, sometimes if you’ve been a little lax on scrubbing (exfoliating) then a streaky tan can happen.
If you wake up to a streaky tan or streaky spray tan happens, don’t panic, they’ve got you!
The best thing to do is to use a small amount of body exfoliator (such as their Three Warriors Tasmanian Sand Scrub) and gently massage it on the areas where you see excess pigment or the streaky tan appearing and allow it to slowly melt away the lines, allowing a natural tan to evolve.
