In this week’s episode of The Whole Circle Podcast we talk to the Founder of Eco Tan, Sonya Driver.

Sonya was determined to support her sister, who had a cancerous growth cut from her arm, leaving a horrible scar. Still wanting to get a tan without the risk of harmful UV rays, they sought the next best thing. Sonya and her sister began getting regular spray tans together but soon became concerned about the ingredients they were constantly covering themselves with. Sonya began to research the ingredients used by many different brands, regardless of their claims. She 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 much of what we put on it is absorbed into our bloodstream.

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 her Currumbin house.

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.

Since Day 1, Sonya has been committed to creating a healthier, animal friendly and environmentally friendly eco range. Eco Tan is a company that is founded on authenticity and transparency, which is why our certifications are SO important.

Topics discussed:

  1. It wasn’t easy to start
  2. Ingredients that Sonya refuses to include in her products
  3. Sonya’s Book – The Nudge – A Raw Organic Business Manual
  4. Skin Compost 3-Step Skincare System
