Eco Tan Founder Sonya Driver just returned to the Gold Coast after visiting a single mother and her 5 poverty stricken daughters in Romania. It’s a beautiful story, worth a read…
So last year a friend of mine who travels the world helping and feeding street people, came across a woman with five young daughters, living in a village in Romania.
My friend thought he had seen it all… But this time, his heart was broken and the videos he shared about how they were living horrified me. They were literally sleeping on piles of rags with mice and rats. No water, no food, no door, no window, no beds. Nothing.
Lonela, the mother, was digging in the dirt for worms for 13 hours a day so she could sell them to fisherman as bait. The family were always hungry and sick.
I can’t begin to stress to you how important sun safety and protection is in Australia…
According to Sun Smart, Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. In fact, 2 in 3 Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70. I’m hoping these statistics help you understand just how important sun safety, skin checks and sunscreen is!
However, through my experience I have found sunscreen to be one of the most difficult products on the market. In my opinion, I think it’s because we expect it to do too much in protecting our skin against the great fire ball!
Aloe Vera Benefits on Skin are seriously endless! Even before I started Eco Tan, I have had a long love and trust in Aloe Vera. I couldn’t imagine life without this healing plant. You will even find an Aloe plant at the front door of my home in Queensland, Australia. I am constantly snapping of a leaf for a visitor, proclaiming all the benefits!
You will find Certified Organic Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice in most of our award-winning tanning and body care products, such as….
We reached out to our beautiful friends at Loving Earth to see if they had any special Christmas recipes that we could share with you. And did they ever! Full of delicious organic and natural ingredients (just like our products), this Raw Coconut Raspberry Cheesecake is a showstopper!
It’s a light and creamy coconut cheesecake, with a tart raspberry centre and a crunchy choc buckini base. It is the perfect cake to bring to the table this festive season. Also, it can be made well in advance and stored in the freezer. When ready to serve, just defrost and decorate.
Fundraiser Event Gold Coast – The Joy Givers Soiree Lunch
It’s rare to get the opportunity to REALLY change the lives of this those in desperate need.
My friend and fellow joy giver, Owen, of many years has a heart for the homeless and broken, and he spends his time travelling the world helping those in need. Recently Owen visited Romania and one family in particular rocked him to his core… We decided, it was time to rally our folks, we needed to organise a fundraiser event.
Lonela is a single mother of five daughters. She can’t read or write. To earn money to feed her family, she works for the fishermen and fisheries digging through dirt for worms for 13 hours per day! Sadly Lonela hasn’t seen her eldest daughter smile in three years.

If the rising temperatures and humidity is enough indication, I think it’s safe to say Summer is on the way. For all of us as Eco Tan HQ, this means days by the beach, cold drinks and lots of time in the pool. While we’re all excited to be out in the warm weather, it can be sobering to remember that Australia has the highest rate of melanoma in the world. It’s incredibly pertinent that we follow a summer sun safety routine, review the warning signs of melanoma, how to check for them, and to check a mates back!
Checking your skin regularly for any new spots or changes in existing spots is crucial. Catching a melanoma early can be the difference between clear health or skin cancer.
What you need to know about our organic tanning products…
Oh Summer. The season of beach-filled days, laying by the pool and… sunburns. It’s a sad fact but spending day after day in a bikini under the sun can and will leave your skin redder than a tomato. Seriously not a good look. While it doesn’t look or feel too fab to get sunburnt, it also has serious implications for your skin. Australia has one of the highest rates of melanoma in the world, and Eco Tan was founded due to our founder’s sister being diagnosed with one. Your skin is your largest organ so it is of the utmost importance you take care of it and protect it from the great fireball!
We’ve all seen it before – some poor girl leaving the salon doing her best to hide the fact she looks like an oompa loompa… Unfortunately, a lot of spray tan solutions use orange as a dye to give that ‘tanned’ look, but we have all seen it go wrong so many times before. Worse still, to counteract the orange dye, most solutions also contain a green dye as well! What’s worse than waking up looking like Shrek?
