Whether its fall, winter, spring or summer.. I love a healthy glow that doesn’t scream.. “Orange, or ..I came straight from a bottle lol”



Over time the self tanner industry has evolved to provide higher quality products, but today, just like millions of other products..




They contain TONS of hidden nasties (DHA) that are toxic to the skin



As a natural beauty advocate, I’ve been on the search for the best of the best in natural self tanners. Though they are limited, there are many that provide better results without having to subject yourself to toxic chemicals..














(I mean there is cacao in there, how cool is that!)

It all started about 3 years ago. I remember the moment too well. My gentle spirited 30 year old sister was diagnosed with a melanoma. I believe through the power of prayer and early diagnoses she caught it in time.


Still wanting a tan but without the potential risk from UV we sought the next best thing and started having spray tans. I then became concerned about the ingredients we were constantly covering ourselves with. I began to research the ingredients from many different brands regardless of their claims.


It only took me a few minutes to decide not to use their products anymore.


After thousands of hours researching and formulating I put together a solution that I believe is not only beautiful it is also safe and free from all things nasty and artificial. My colours do not contain synthetic food colouring and are made from natural Cacao ( Chocolate), herbs, flower extract , fruit extract and chamomile from Mother Earth. I use certified organics and naturals in all of my formulas. I will not compromise quality or safety for the mighty dollar.


I feel like I have now finally arrived through strength not of my own when on March 2011, my company made Australian history by becoming the first and only organic tan to be certified by the Organic Food Chain. The OFC is an Australian organic government approved certifier. Not only are we totally natural we have over 70% certified organics in our tans.


Eco Tan where possible, uses veggie ink and recycled paper that are friendly to our environment.


It is our aim to bring you a range of products that not only will you love but also have as little impact on Mother Nature as possible.  


 Eco Tan products are provided by Aussi Organics and the United States Eco Tan Headquarters. Eco Tan products can be purchased at

  1. My Mom has been searching for a safer, more natural self-tanner and I'd love to gift this to her. It sounds like a great product line.
