Eight years ago, Sonya’s (founder) world was turned upside down and to add to the dire situation, her gentle-spirited sister was diagnosed with a melanoma. With her sisters cancerous growth cut out of her arm, leaving a horrible scar.
She still wanted to get a tan without the risk of harmful UV rays, they sought the next best thing. Sonya and her sister started to get spray tans, until Sonya began to research the ingredients used by many different brands and become concerned about the ingredients they were constantly covering themselves with. Sonya researched these ingredients regardless of the different brand claims. Sonya says, it only took her minutes to decide not to use their products anymore.
This is where Sonya’s new life began. Our skin is our largest organ and much of what we put on it is absorbed into our bloodstream. So, Sonya started buying in samples of cacao, flower essence, chamomile, and all things natural and organic and started mixing batches out of her tiny kitchen.
In 2011, Eco Tan made Australian history by becoming the first and only tanning manufacturer to be certified organic by the Organic Food Chain under the Australian government.
