Tan Remover

Hi Everyone,
Has anyone formulated a tan remover before?
My client is looking for a tan removing product in a body wash (non physical abrasive)
Any ideas or is this clutching at straws?
My only plan so far is to have a high pH assuming this will help strip the skin.
Thanks!

  • Damn. Sorry, I missed the "non physical" part. OK then:

    Yes, you need to use a Chaotropic Denaturant such as Urea or Sodium Bicarbonate that will cause the protein to unfold.

  • Hey 
    Ok thanks very much Mark Broussard. I have seen one on the market that has Sodium Bicarb. Makes sense.
    Cheers
