It’s possible to source sun protection that only uses all natural sunscreen ingredients! Prepare now to protect your skin from our harsh Aussie sun.
What you put ON your skin is just as important as what you put IN it. With so many sunscreens to choose from, and so many containing toxic chemicals, choosing the right one can be confusing.
Firstly, let’s discuss what exactly you are protecting yourself from in the first place?
Solar Ultraviolet radiation (UVR) is invisible energy produced by the sun and made up of UVA, UVB and UVC. Most UVC is absorbed by the Ozone Layer as it hits. Unfortunately both UVA and UVB can penetrate that layer to reach the earth’s surface and damage human skin. Sunburn or even a suntan is a clear sign that your skin has been harmed by UVR! Every time this damage occurs will increase your risk of developing skin cancer.
Our Organic Personal Outdoor Spray is not only made with all natural and organic ingredients, but it can be used on skin and it really WORKS to keep the bugs away and allow you to enjoy the great outdoors!
More than just plugging our organic natural pest solution we also want to educate you on the toxic perils of more traditional sprays, DEET in particular.
Anyone who knows me knows I’m not lacking in oodles of spirit! I move a mile a minute and my world is full on and exciting and full of beautiful people. Never once do I take any of it for granted, but every now and again, I catch myself caught up in a whirlwind. At this point, I know it’s time to stop and make sure I’m spiritually and emotionally in touch with my spirit and that it’s not being contaminated with toxic surroundings, situations, thoughts or people. This is my time for a mental and spiritual detox.
In our recent experiences, people or brands claim to have “organic spray tan solutions” – this frustrates us beyond belief!!
This is, we think, one of our most important blogs to date…
Last night, we got an email from one of our new spray tanners. She was so shocked at the difference in ingredients between our organic spray tan solutions and other company’s “organic” spray tan solutions. It is SO frustrating how many other brands and business out there claim to be “organic” – when really their products are filled with toxic chemicals and potential carcinogens!
Its calming, hydrating, and antioxidant properties are great for all skin types, even for rosacea, eczema and acne effected skin! Hyaluronic Acid (H.A) also has wonderful anti-ageing properties and is also one of the most effective hydrating ingredients for skin.
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….

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!
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.
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?
