Tyro Tan Ingredients
Tyro Tan includes the following ingredients: L-Tyrosine, Para Amino Benzoic Acid, Copper (Sulphate), Calcium Phosphate, Magnesium Stearate, Acacia, and Stearic Acid.
The formula combines the amino acid L-Tyrosine with PABA and Copper in a formula designed to promote healthy skin.
L-tyrosine is an amino acid which plays an important role in protein synthesis. It is mainly used against depression, ADD, PMS (pre-menstrual syndrome), Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, chronic fatigue, schizophrenia and heart disease. Some people claim it also reduce age-related wrinkles, therefore it is commonly used as a suntan agent.
PABA is a nutrient which can be found naturally in different food sources (liver, kidney, mushrooms, whole grains and unfiltered bear) or produced industrially through several processes. It is considered to be an UV absorber and has been widely used as the main active ingredient in sunscreens over the years. However, studies have shown contradictory results and the side effects of PABA made it less used within this type of products. Side effects reported include skin irritation, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea loss of appetite or stomach upset.
Even though the ingredients of Tyro Tan are generally researched substances, no evidence that the whole formula has been the subject of clinical trials is provided. No reviews from consumers could be found either.

- Relatively low price for a month’s supply (approximately $12);
