Here at The Organic Place we don’t only provide fresh fruit and veg but we also have a wide variety of other organic products too. We put in a lot of time researching a product before we decide to include it in our online store. We like to make sure it’s the real deal and so when we came across the Eco Tan range we just knew it was the perfect product us and our wonderful customers. It wasn’t only the fact that the products are Australian made, certified organic and free from animal testing but the story behind it’s creation was what really got us. And tonight we’ve invited Sonya Driver, creator and owner of the Eco Tan range to share that story with us.
When Sonya returned home to the Gold Coast she was determined to make a positive change and support her sister, whose cancerous growth had been cut from her arm, leaving her with a horrible scar. Still wanting to get a tan without the risk of harmful UV rays, they sisters sought the next best thing. They began getting regular spray tans but quickly became concerned about the ingredients they were constantly covering themselves with. Sonya began to do some research and says it only took her a few minutes to decide not to use their products anymore. After all, our skin is our largest organ, and anything we put on it is absorbed into our bloodstream.
Sonya threw herself into making a true organic tanning range made from chocolate, flower essence, chamomile and all things natural and organic. 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.
