Shortage of Fake Tan on the way, experts warn

Fake tan fans are being warned to prepare for a shortage of the product.

Experts are warning a key ingredient called ethoxydiglycol has been facing supply problems in recent weeks.

It's used in a wide range of fake tan, skin creams, and beauty products.

UK online pharmacy Medicine Direct says the cosmetics industry will be badly affected by the lack of supply.

Marissa Carter, CEO, and founder of Cocoa Brown, says she took steps to prevent a shortage:

"We ordered our Christmas stock last January because we could see this coming down the line."

"It is absolutely impossible for manufacturers in the beauty industry to get their hands on raw ingredients and stock because there's such a huge shortage globally, every manufacturer is coming up against the same problem."
