What can Roucou Oil do for Your Summer Tan?

The summer rays are at peak intensity, inviting sunbathers everywhere to get a tantastic glow. Of course, we don’t have to tell you that it’s vital to protect your skin against UVA/UVB rays with an SPF of 30 or more. You already know that. So let’s get to the good stuff.

There is a precious ingredient that is probably missing from your sun tanning kit. It’s called roucou oil, and it’s derived from the seeds of the achiote shrub found in South America, Mexico and the Caribbean. Roucou oil is an ancestral self-care product that was used by the Caribbean’s indigenous Arawak peoples as a natural form of sun protection. Roucou oil stimulates the skin’s melanin production, enhancing its ability to bronze with the sun.

Ligne St Barth is one of the only skincare lines that offers a Roucou Tanning Oil. Formulated with a blend of skin-soothing botanical oils, it possesses a deep red colour from the roucou and a tropical scent from pure coconut oil. Apply from head-to-toe overtop your sun cream of choice for a hydrating skin texture and natural, sunkissed complexion.
