Tan Thin: Does Tan Thin Work?
Tan Thin – At A Glance
Tan Thin is a thermogenic topical slimming cream, meaning it uses heat to help melt fat from the areas where it is applied. Another phrase used to describe the product on the Tan Thin site is an “advanced liposculpture serum.” Contrary to what the name may imply, Tan Thin does not contain any ingredients that will cause your skin to tan or darken. They explain that they created the name because tanning may accelerate the effects of the product and that a tan body goes well with a thin one.
Unfortunately, it is unclear from the website who is responsible for manufacturing and marketing Tan Thin. There are also two separate mailing addresses for the product, one in Colorado and one in Nevada, which is a little strange.
Tan Thin – Facts
The Tan Thin website is a little skimpy in the facts department. They generally explain the way the product works by saying that it is absorbed through the skin into the fat cells where it causes them to release lipids and shrink. The exact process is not explained, nor are the ingredients. In fact, not a single ingredient in the lotion is mentioned anywhere on the website. Thus, it is completely unclear how it works, and nearly impossible to confirm whether it works as claimed.
The website has a section for clinical studies. However, there is only one study listed. It shows promising results in fat reduction around the waist from the usage of a cream containing 0.5% aminophylline. It does not state that Tan Thin was used, and it is not stated anywhere that Tan Thin actually contains aminophylline. Also, the subjects in this study were on a limited 1,200 calorie balanced diet and on a walking regime.
There are six testimonials with photos and a few videos from attractive, satisfied Tan Thin users. You may try Tan Thin on a 14-day free trial basis, but you must be aware that this enrolls you in an autoship program where your credit card is charged and you are shipped the product monthly. If you order the 6oz tube directly from the website, it costs $119.95 and comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, minus a 20% restocking charge.

Tan Thin – Conclusion
While Tan Thin may be all it claims to be, it is very difficult to determine this from the information, or lack thereof, presented on their website. The clinical study they list is indeed very promising, but there is no direct link stated between the cream used in the study and Tan Thin itself. Furthermore, the website doesn’t even state that Tan Thin contains any formulation of the active ingredient in the study, aminophylline, let alone the effective concentration used by the researchers. The fact that not a single ingredient is named is also very troubling. Not only can this be problematic for those with sensitive skin or allergies, but it also makes it nearly impossible to effectively evaluate the product.
Cellulite can affect people of all ages and body types and can be notoriously difficult to get rid of. While there are certainly no miracle cures, using specially formulated creams and treatments along with a healthy diet and exercise plan can reduce the appearance of the dimpled skin affected by cellulite. Creams and lotions that contain stimulating ingredients such as caffeine are particularly beneficial as they help move toxins out the body while other natural ingredients are used to condition the skin, giving it a firmer, tighter appearance which further reduces the look of the affected area.
