TANSXL is a collaboration between Brazil Bronze Glow Bar and Derek Saathoff from “A-List, NYC”. Derek is a long time client of Brazil Bronze and addicted to their spray tans. He wanted to develop his own Spray Tan Product. Brazil Bronze and Derek wanted to promote a healthy sexy lifestyle. Luxurious, chic, effortless tan. The result, TANSXL.


Derek Saathoff

One of New York’s most prolific gay socialites. Derek has taken a leave from modeling and being a model manager, to throw himself into the launch of his new bronzer, “TANSEXUAL”. Derek continues to rub elbows with celebrities and has not given up the search to find that special man who will match his luxurious, fast paced lifestyle.

This southern boy seemed an unlikely candidate for the A-List growing up, but his drive and career in model management has afforded him luxuries people his age only dream about. Derek rubs elbows with celebrities and is seen every night on the party circuit, looking for the right (rich) man, who can match his lifestyle, enabling Derek to retire at 27.
