How a NYPD Detective and a Swedish Ballerina changed the indoor tanning world

            John Abaté International, the highly regarded and successful manufacturer of vitamin-rich, botanically based accelerating tanning and premium skincare products. John, a former New York City undercover detective, began his career in the tanning industry when in the mid-1980s, he opened his tanning salon, The Hawaiian Sun Center in Bardonia, New York. During this time he began retailing exceptional indoor tanning lotions which were formulated with innovative ingredients to effectively accelerate the tanning process. John exclusively marketed these tanning accelerators and quickly become a tanning lotion pioneer as the first to introduce “tingling” indoor tanning lotions in North America. Envisioning the potential for this new discovery, John began his own manufacturing operation to begin producing the highly successful tanning products. In short time, John Abaté created and lead a path to a new tanning lotion revolution with many competitors quickly following in his steps in producing their own tingling accelerators. But it remains that it is only with John Abaté International that customers enjoy The Original Tingle — The Natural Tingle.

            At JA we keep tight control of product quality and use only the most premium grade quality (and most effective) ingredients possible, yet keep prices competitive. John insists on using only the costliest natural vitamins and botanical extracts in order to maintain his high standard of effectiveness to obtain deep, rich tans and superior, essential skin care and appearance.
