Share Article

Biddiscombe Sunless product lines have been added to 2013 distributor programs for both Four Seasons and Heartland Tanning.

We are so pleased to be working with these two product distributors for sunless tanning.

Biddiscombe International has secured distribution partnerships with both Four Seasons Sales & Service and Heartland Tanning programs. The Biddiscombe Sunless brand includes three product lines; Revelation, Revive Naturals and Professional Series. While these products are new to the distributor programs, they have a loyal following going back many years with sunless professionals across the country.

“Distribution was a key part of our growth plan for 2012 and we are so pleased to be working with these two product distributors for sunless tanning in the U.S.A.,” says Biddiscombe president, John Melville. Four Seasons is the largest distributor of sunless products for salons, spas and sunless professionals, and is one of the few employee owned companies in the indoor tanning industry. Heartland Tanning Inc. has sales and service locations in 8 states coast to coast. Recognized numerous times for excellence in Customer Service, Heartland has been an industry leader as a manufacturer of tanning equipment, and distributor of lamps, lotions, and salon supplies.

Biddiscombe’s strengths lie in developing and manufacturing quality sunless formulations. Originally known as a skincare company, Biddiscombe International has been formulating sunless products since 1999 and has remained one of the industry’s forerunners. In developing its products, the company has fostered strong relationships with a diverse client base, from mobile tanning professionals to salon franchise owners. Proactive customer service has been the key to the company’s success.

Revelation is the premier line using more sophisticated, performance based ingredients for a luxury product for handheld spray equipment. Sunless solution formulations include Premium, an emulsion based solution, and Rapid, a high performance formulation with a shorter time to shower. A full line of retail products is available as well, including self-tanning aerosols, self tanning lotions, a body scrub and pH wash to prep and moisturize skin throughout the spray tan process. Revelation Blu is a high performance prep spray solution for clients who were unable to properly shower and exfoliate prior to their spray tan session.

Revive Naturals is a line of products for the growing market of clients seeking natural and organic oriented spray tanning. Utilizing Ecocert approved DHA (dihydroxyacetone), Biddiscombe Sunless has developed sunless formulations that are over 85% organic and 100% natural in content. Revive Naturals also boasts its own retail line, adhering to high natural and organic content, including moisturizing and tan extending lotions, as well as body scrub and body wash products.

The Professional Series line of products is the most expansive and longstanding salon favorite. Offering different levels of DHA content as well as skin nurturing ingredients, the solutions also provide a selection of cosmetic colors from golden to bronze to beach blush. The Professional Handheld Series features solutions like 305 which is a great base solution for fair skinned clients all the way to Fuzion, which offers great color for competition and body builder clients. All of the Professional Series products are unscented, but can be customized for each customer using Aroma Blast drops in Vanilla, Lemongrass, Coconut or Citrus.

The Professional Support Series offers Shield, a DHA barrier lotion, Renew, a pre-tan exfoliating spray, Lock, a post tan moisture-color seal and drops to customize solution color or even boost the DHA content. The Professional Booth Series provides alternative solutions to the ones offered by the booth manufacturers, with the parallel offerings in cosmetic color, prep spray and post tan spray. Packaging has been adapted for manufacturer’s equipment and requires no setting changes to use.

The most recent product addition has been a USDA NOP certified organic Pina Colada lip balm. In response to recommendations for lip protection in spray tanning, Biddiscombe developed this formulation as its first NOP certified organic product in its sunless product line. The product was launched at the annual indoor tanning convention, Smart Tan Nashville with great success.
